Making it Pawsable

Downtown Dogs is immensely proud of our “Making it Pawsable” program. Each year we foster nearly 100 homeless dogs. We act as a foster home for three animal rescue groups that work tirelessly to help pets who have been abandoned find loving, dedicated forever families. Of course there are always more animals needing homes than there are adoptive families and foster homes so the groups must turn away many pets in need. Our participation with these groups allows them to take in and help more animals. If you are adding a new furry family member consider rescuing a dog.

Since we foster nearly 100 dogs a year, we almost always have several who are enjoying the other dogs and playing with their new friends ... while they wait to be adopted by their new family. It changes often. Check in with us and find out who we are fostering.
