Becoming a foster parent for a homeless animal isn't as difficult as you might think and it can be so very rewarding. Having an available foster home for a dog or cat that is out of time in a shelter literally makes the difference between life and death. We pay for the vetting you provide a safe haven for them. We have the need for foster homes in all DFW areas. If you think you could provide even a short term foster for a dog or cat that needs help, please go to the fostering tab . You can choose your new foster dog or cat - small, large, old, young - they all deserve a chance at a forever home. Foster families give them that chance!

We look forward to helping the community find more happy homes for all the homeless animals in our rural shelters

About Shelter2Rescue

Shelter2Rescue Coalition is a foster-based animal welfare organization dedicated to saving death row animals in rural Texas shelters. We are completely foster-based and we do not have a building or shelter. We do our best to facilitate the safe placement of at-risk dogs and cats with our national coalition partners, but we also have an adoption program for those that don't make it into other rescues. Please click on our Adoptable Pet List to see if one of our special dogs could be your next cherished family member! If you find a pet that you are interested in, we will set up an appointment with the foster family.

Adopting a friend

If you have found your new best friend, please fill out the application below. We have a three step process for adoption that includes an application, home visits/reference checks and final adoption contract. Most of the sweet dogs you see on our pages were saved from euthanasia just in the nick of time and we want to do everything in our power to assure that they never have to worry about finding themselves in that predicament again. We really work hard to ensure there is a good match between adopter and adoptee and we are here after the adoption to help in any way that we can.
