Thank you for your interest in adopting from Pathways for Paws! Applications are reviewed in the order they are received. Please understand that our dogs have individual needs & our goal is to find them a FURever home that best suits them!

Please do not apply if you are not ready to bring your new family member home within the next 3-4 days! Most of the dogs listed are available immediately & we do not have the means to hold them!

We will contact you within 48 hrs of submitting only if your application fits the needs of the dog you are applying for! We do not have the means to reach out to everyone individually with a status update at this time.

If the application is not completed in full, we will not contact you.


🐾 When you foster a dog, you agree to take a rescued dog into your home and give them love, care and attention, either for a predetermined period of time or until the dog is adopted.

EVERYTHING is provided (crate, food, bed, toys, medicine if needed, etc.)

🐾Why does Pathways for Paws need fosters?
– We depend on foster homes to care for dogs until suitable homes are found.
– A puppy is too young to be adopted and needs a safe place to stay until they are old enough to go to a forever home.
– A dog is recovering from surgery, illness or injury and needs a safe place to recuperate.
– A dog has not lived in a home before or has not had much contact with people and needs to be socialized.

The Lost and Stray Response Squad volunteers are constantly answering pleas to help stray, missing & dumped dogs at all hours of the day! In order for us to continuing helping them, we need YOU.

Pathways for Paws is in need of EMERGENCY fosters! We need flexible, understanding, reliable fosters! They don’t need much to stay safe! Pathways for Paws will supply everything needed!

If you have a safe, enclosed place at your residence (a bathroom, spare bedroom, garage, etc.) to house a dog in need that has been found/caught, click the button below to complete the form!

You can help be the difference between life & death for these dogs!
