We are SO thrilled with our Foster Dogs Inc. adoption experience. Gus is a great addition to the fam: cuddly, goofy, snacks-motivated. The team at Foster Dogs Inc. was so kind and patient throughout the process, answering all of our Qs, thoughtfully vetting us for Gus, and facilitating a safe, virtual (but totally satisfying!) meet-and-greet with his foster mom. (Who was The Best, BTW!) Gus wasn't in great shape when he was surrendered to the team and had to have a major surgery with a major recovery. But with the love and resources from Foster Dogs Inc. (and his wonderful foster mom!), he got a second chance and we got a new forever furbaby and brother to our O.G. dog Scrapple. Scrapple loves Gus, too—even when Gus steals his food. SO grateful to the Foster Dogs Inc. team!

A couple of weeks ago, I took in a dog with the hopes of finding him a new home. Sarah was referred to me by a mutual friend and she did not disappoint! She quickly was able to connect us to a lovely couple who had recently lost their pet and was able to give our foster dog a loving home. She was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her!

I adopted a dog through a rescue group 6 years ago and shortly after attended a session run by Foster Dogs for new dog owners and fosters. Then about a year or so later my Archie and I participated in a photography fundraiser for Foster Dos that was so much fun. I follow Foster Dogs on Instagram and I am so impressed with the work they are doing and how much they have grown. Sadly we had to say goodbye to Archie in April and just about 2 weeks ago started to think seriously about adopting again. We fell for a little guy named Hamilton who was rescued by Foster Dogs. They provided surgery to remove what they thought was a large tumor but turned out to be a testicle that hadn't descended. Hamilton was the same age as Archie when we adopted him and he spoke to us so we submitted an application. Hamilton went to another home but Sarah put us in touch with a 5 year old Pomeranian who needed a new home. We met Max and his foster family and decided to adopt him. Its been 2 days and so far we are getting to know each other. He is incredibly sweet and I look forward to my fiance Jimmy, little Max and me creating great memories together.

I have been a big fan of Foster Dogs Inc. for many years. This highly respected organization has helped to create positive outcomes for many dogs in New York City and beyond. Foster Dogs serves as a shining example of the power of fostering – and the tremendous impact the act of fostering can have on the lives of pets in need of a pathway to a brighter future. The support Foster Dogs has provided to the rescue community in New York City has been invaluable. To all the dogs you have helped to save – and those you have yet to save – thank you, Foster Dogs!

Foster Dogs Inc., has been an essential resource for the rescue organization I volunteer with. They have helped us through their vast outreach to place foster dogs with medical conditions, special needs and super seniors. The team at Foster Dogs Inc., has been super responsive, kind and compassionate. They have been following up on the dogs we've placed and asking for updates on their health and how they're doing. Foster Dogs Inc. have created a wonderful community of fosters and volunteers that I feel proud to join. My organization is grateful for everything they've been able to do for us.

I was incredibly fortunate to have fostered Kanoa - a sweet and loving 9yo Pit Mix/American Bully Mix - through AmsterDog Rescue for a month in NYC. In that time, Kanoa blossomed. With a lot of training and patience, she worked on her reactivity to other dogs. She showed me her goofy personality, snuggled in closely, and always grinned from ear to ear. Being a first-time foster, I quickly joined the Foster Dogs NYC group on social media and introduced myself to this wonderful community of foster parents. When I needed advice or had questions, the community always answered with thoughtful and supportive advice/feedback. Kanoa and I joined the Friday Night Foster Club through IG Live and it was a great way to "show off" this sweet love bug. That very evening, a family contacted Foster Dogs to inquire about Kanoa - and the rest is history. This loving Brooklyn-based family adopted Kanoa into their home two weeks after seeing her on the Foster Club. And all thanks to Foster Dogs for creating outlets to make a forever home possible.

Thank you, Foster Dogs, Inc., for bringing the sweet little 12-year-old Mrs. Peeps into my life! My heart - and currently my lap - are full because of Mrs. Peeps. I adore caring for her as her fospice home in her golden years. The heroes of this story are the team at Foster Dogs who created a structure built on information, kindness, preparation, and joy devote to what is best for the dog, and therefore for supporting the human. I cannot thank the team for treating us with such kindness!

Foster Dogs Inc has been near and dear to my heart for close to the full decade it's been in operation. When I moved to NYC, I asked a friend how I could get involved with helping shelter dogs and she recommended an organization our mutual friend was just getting started (hint, hint, FDI!). I couldn't be more proud to volunteer with this creative, thoughtful and caring group of humans who love dogs as much as I do. I have been involved with the Educational Series, planning and hosting workshops for people getting started with fostering. My favorite volunteer role has been helping FDI rescue animals from the city shelter as a New Home Partner. I have been able to help foster 2 dogs (Mimi and Bug) and be part of their road to forever homes. Mimi, a senior gal who had stitches from a recent surgery was so grateful to be held and loved. She was with me during Thanksgiving and brought so much warmth to my family! She's now living the LIFE with her new mom and a very fashionable wardrobe . Bug was with me for a short time but had I not been able to take her immediately she may not have been pulled from the shelter at all due to her age and health. We went to the vet together the night she arrived and after some tests found out that she had a very treatable thyroid condition! Fast forward a few weeks and she's been adopted to a great guy in BK! I could not recommend this organization more!

I have never gone though the process of adopting a dog from a shelter or foster before, but I am so glad that when I did, it happened to be with Foster Dogs, Inc!! We had lost our Jack 4 months prior, and were only quasi looking for a new baby to fill the void when I saw what had to be my dog on line, and contacted the fantastic Sarah on adopting Wiley. I thought this was going to be a long drawn out process, with lots of waiting - boy was I wrong! All of my inquiries and emails were answered very timely, very professional, and I had my girl home within 4 days of me beginning the process. I really can't say enough good things about the good people who work for this business,and commend all of the foster parents out there getting these dogs out of scary shelters and into loving homes while they await their fur-ever homes!!

I can't say enough great things about this organization, whether you're looking to foster, volunteer, or adopt. I started volunteering for Foster Dogs 2 years ago on their one-of-a-kind fospice program (foster + hospice) called Chloe's Fospice Friends. The great thing about Foster Dogs is how they empower their volunteers, which means I've had the opportunity to really get involved with a special field of animal rescue and to work with a group of passionate, talented, and very well-organized people! I'm always impressed with the new ideas they create to expand foster access and education, and their execution is equally as strong. And while I originally began volunteering because of the hospice program, my husband and I began fostering soon after, and it's been a very meaningful (and fun) part of both of our lives now. Thanks, Foster Dogs!!

Foster Dogs is a one-of-a-kind non-profit that is focused on enhancing the lives not just of dogs but of the rescues within the community. Staffed by passionate and smart volunteers, I have been so impressed by their dedication to education but also the way they use social media to bring awareness and accessibility to people interested in fostering (or who become interested because of them!).

I've been volunteering with Foster Dogs for several years now. I came across the organization when I was fostering my very first dog Echo. Their help was invaluable - from supplies, to workshops, to Foster Forum community to answer all my fostering questions. Their adoption events are always fun, and who can say NO to a puppy party! FD managed to bring together people from different rescues to help them share their experiences and knowledge.

As a rescue group, we are always looking for foster homes so that we can save more animals from the shelters. We found ourselves desperately needing a foster for a dog named Ziti that was being surrendered. Foster Dogs NYC sent out a plea and we got more foster offers than we knew what to do with -- their network is wonderful. Ziti needed an experienced and patient and that's just what we got. They worked with him and now Ziti has found his forever home. We couldn't have done any of this without help from Foster Dogs NYC. They are a great group.

I work at the only municipal shelter in Nashville, TN and had the great opportunity to form a partnership with Foster Dogs Inc. and it has proven to be a program changer. The team is easy to work with and understands the time sensitive nature of finding fosters for animals in the shelter. We have had nothing but positive experiences and considering the current push and need to get animals in foster, the system could not have run smoother. This means that information is collected faster, contact is made quicker, we can push out resources to our current fosters and the foster network just continues to grow. Foster Dog Inc. has been critical and crucial to the success of our life saving operation.

On behalf of Louie's Legacy Animal Rescue, I am so grateful to Foster Dogs Inc! As a foster based rescue in NYC, we are so happy to have been able to partner up with Foster Dogs. They are a great team to work with and have aided in helping us recruit so many new fosters all throughout NYC for the countless dogs we save. Their team understands that sometimes finding a foster for a dog in need can be urgent, they are always professional, responsive and timely. They also host networking events and educational seminars which have also proven to be valuable and fun.

Wow where to start. Foster Dogs is not only a rescue through which I've met and fostered several loves of my life, they are also like a family to me. When my dog Zion passed at the sweet old age of 17 I decided I wanted to fospice (foster hospice) senior dogs. I found Foster Dogs online and applied for their fospice program. Within a few weeks I was contacted by one of the volunteers and shortly after had my first fospice, Princess Leia. I cared for three fospice dogs and 1 foster through Foster Dogs Inc and it was the most rewarding work I've ever done. The women behind the rescue are absolutely amazing and truly became my role models. Foster Dogs Inc has integrity, heart, and compassion in spades. The saddest part of moving away from NYC was saying goodbye to my foster family. I cannot recommend this organization enough, they are the real deal.

Our family had a wonderful experience with Foster Dogs Inc. I knew a few years ago that I would like to eventually bring a hospice dog here to be with our family. Last year, a little before halloween, I felt the time was right. I started my search, but had very specific criteria due to my family life and environment in which I wanted the dog to thrive in. I passed on a few local dogs due to needing to meet this criteria.

A 'friend of a friend' mentioned Foster Dogs Inc. so I contacted them immediately. I was disappointed to find out that their Hospice program remained fairly local to the New York area (I am in Ct). However, after chatting with Melissa and Leslie a bit, we made a plan for me to actually ADOPT a hospice dog directly through a shelter, yet they would provide me with much of the perks and support systems that are in place for their dogs that are in their Fospice Program . For me, it has been a PERFECT hybrid of adoption and support.

We were contacted about a couple of dogs after Christmas, but I didn't feel it was the right fit. Then, in April, we were contacted about a 16 year old Chihuahua that has mammary tumors. We took her in and haven't look back since. Our little Fran is absolutely amazing, and is an absolute perfect fit for our family of 6 and multiple animals. She was worth the wait.

When I moved to the NYC area last fall I made it a priority to get involved with an animal welfare organization because I was desperately missing my dogs back home and volunteering with rescue animals had been an important part of my life for some time. I came across Foster Dogs and was drawn to the organization because of the unique events that I saw on their social media pages, and in their photos, it looked like the volunteers were having such a great time! After browsing their website I was further impressed by their Board of Directors and Steering Committee. Soon after, I began volunteering with them and I can confidently say that their volunteers ARE having a fabulous time and doing good for animals all at once! Fast forward to earlier this year when Sarah asked if I might want to foster a cute senior pup from the Brooklyn ACC. Smokey needed a home without other pets and I was eager to have a dog in my home again after fostering and adopting out my fosters from another organization. From the very beginning of my fostering journey with FDI I was supported and given many tools and resources to help find Smokey a forever home. We worked with a wonderful trainer, received great veterinary care, attended adoption events, and had multiple professional photo sessions. After a couple of months, it turned out that Smokey had actually been in his forever home all along...with me and my boyfriend! The support from Foster Dogs did not end there. We were fortunate enough to have been offered additional training sessions, as well as many months worth of heart medication for Smokey through Foster Dogs' partnership with Susie's Senior Dogs. Additionally, we know that through Foster Dogs we have access to a community of supportive fellow fosters, adopters, volunteers, and advocates who are willing to share their knowledge and advice. This has all made for a wonderful fostering and adoption experience that my boyfriend and I are so grateful for. Foster Dogs is an incredible resource to have in the NYC area and is an organization that we will recommend to others over and over again.

When I moved to New York City from Hong Kong in 2017, I had missed my family dogs very much and was looking at adopting a dog of my own. I attended the Furry Valentines dog adoption event organized by Foster Dogs Inc. and met Sarah and her team about the adoptable dogs. While I did not leave the event with a furry companion, Foster Dogs Inc. inspired me to start fostering dogs while I continue my search. Foster Dogs Inc. connected me with my first foster dog named Mango, with Sean Casey Animal Rescue. He was a senior Chihuahua-mix who's a grumpy grandpa and also epileptic. He stayed with me for over 8 months (and was returned a coupled of times) before finding his pawfect mom. Throughout the fostering period, Foster Dogs Inc. provided me with a lot of indispensable resources and generously included Mango in many of their adoption events. I will remain forever grateful for all that they do in supporting rescues and fosters, and advocating for the voiceless in need.

Since Mango, I have fostered 10 other rescued dogs, one of which was Pinky, a senior Chihuahua who was pulled from NYACC by Foster Dogs Inc. She was emaciated and Foster Dogs Inc. helped pull a team of amazing people together to nurse this beautiful soul back to great health and spirit, and finding her a wonderful new home, of course!

Foster Dogs Inc. have made great strides in rescuing dogs in need and connecting them with foster homes. Look forward to seeing them clear the shelters one day!

I cannot rave enough about my experience with Foster Dogs. They, along with other non-profits in NY, saved Mimi from the streets of Harlem. She was covered in mammary tumors, making it hard for her to walk. Foster Dogs worked with Susie's Senior Dogs to sponsor Mimi's much needed surgeries. Mimi is now the picture of perfect health and is as happy as ever.

Foster Dogs helped me just as much as they did Mimi - I couldn't imagine my life without her. Comprised of fantastic leadership and dedicated volunteers, Foster Dogs is a 5/5 star organization.

Finding the right dog to adopt in NYC can be extremely overwhelming, but I was lucky enough to work with Foster Dogs throughout the process. Their robust social media presence allowed me to discover Chewy, and when I reached out with questions, they were immediately responsive and informative. They shared with me the benefits of adopting an older dog, and the things to watch out for. The adoption process, while thorough, was worked through quickly and was never needlessly burdensome. Most importantly, though, it's through their hard and tireless work that Chewy came into my life.

We've since volunteered at an event with Foster Dogs, Inc., and, unsurprisingly, everyone there is incredibly professional, organized, and devoted to the cause. Because this has remained consistent throughout all of my dealings with them, I even went as far to give my full-throated recommendation to my company to partner with FDI at any possible opportunity.

TL;DR: Foster Dogs, Inc., is a wonderful organization doing incredible work; they brought my own pup into my life and I look forward to volunteering and working with them in the future.

Foster Dogs Inc. is a special one - I met this little mush volunteering, and just couldn't say goodbye!

I had been searching for a fur baby to call my own, and this one came to me. Ben arrived first at the Joybird event in May, and instantly charmed us all with his makeshift raincoat. After a fun filled day of getting to know all the dogs, and watching this little one closely, I followed him to his next event at Adoptapalooza and brought him home.

Ben and I have had so many adventures together already, and have the Foster Dog team to thank.

I've been a fan of Foster Dogs Inc. for a while and have gone to several of their fundraisers over the last year. I'm now officially in love with the organization after working with them to bring adoptable dogs to my business for a press event.

My name is Brittany Feldman and I am the Executive Director of a small nonprofit dog and cat rescue group in NYC. Foster Dogs NYC is one of the most professional, proactive, and efficient groups we've ever worked with. They are involved in so many different events and projects and work incredibly hard to find dogs in need not only foster homes, but forever homes as well. As a small rescue with limited resources, Foster Dogs NYC has helped us in numerous ways, from inviting us to different events giving our adoptable animals exposure, to promoting our harder to place animals, to connecting us with wonderful foster families, to providing financial support for situations we were desperate to help with, but weren't able to afford. In rescue, we are all doing what we can to help those animals in need and unexpected situations and emergencies arise daily. When we are in a bind, I know I can reach out to Foster Dogs NYC and they will do everything they can to help...because in the end, it's all about the animals. They are a truly supportive group, assisting rescues, fosters, and potential adopters. We absolutely love working with them and are amazed by all that they do. We can't thank them enough!

My name is Mike Goldfinger and I am the business Operations Manager of iHeartRadio.

I knew National Puppy Day was coming up and I wanted to do something special and surprise my coworkers. Foster Dogs Inc. came recommend by a co-worker, and I've heard that they've done similar office visits for companies, so I reached out and set something up. They arrived EARLY (meaning MORE puppy time!) with five of the most adorable puppies, varying in breed and size. Excitement and confusion arose in equal measure as it timed perfectly with our announcement of 100 million registered listeners of the iHeartRadio App. Instantaneously everyone's inner child came out! It was honestly the most excitement I've seen from the team. Everyone was surprised about how well behaved the puppies were. The Foster Dog's staff were all extremely friendly and helpful during the event; taking pictures for everyone and their favorite puppy.

For dog adoption and office event services I would definitely recommend Foster Dogs Inc. as the dogs we're extremely lovable and well behaved, and the staff have a genuine love for what they do. I cannot wait to work with Foster Dogs Inc again!!!

Foster Dogs NYC is a phenomenal organization that makes fostering easy, accessible, and fun. We have fostered a number of dogs through this organization and just adopted our first puppy thanks to them! The personal attention Sarah and her team provide to each dog is really outstanding and they help numerous local shelters find homes for their respective dogs. Their specialized programs, like Operation Foster Bound and Fospice, help find homes for the dogs who need the most help. With their help, we took in a senior "Fospice" dog and were able to help keep her out of the shelter for the remainder of her life. Thanks to FDI, we've been hooked on fostering and are able to help dogs find their forever homes!

Foster Dogs Inc. (FDI) is a grassroots, lifesaving organization run entirely by volunteers. The dog whom I ultimately adopted from this group was first pulled from a high-kill facility in Manhattan, placed in a kind foster home, and then publicized across social media channels in search of an adopter. FDI insured that the dog was safe, brought back from the brink of malnutrition, socialized to become a good canine citizen, and showered with loving attention. Because of those efforts, I was able to welcome a wonderful dog into my home. FDI even continued to check in on us periodically to make sure that the adoption was a success!

I just love Foster Dogs, Inc. They are such a wonderful, compassionate, and helpful organization. I had the privilege to watch them grow from their inception, and it has been a beautiful experience. As a co-founder of a local rescue, we often rely on Foster Dogs to help us network our dogs to find outstanding foster and adoptive homes. In addition to helping pups find home, they continuously support fosters during their journey as a first time or experienced foster parent. They also help rescues raise money and create unique adoption events. I cannot praise them enough. Sarah truly puts her heart and soul into this organization and her volunteers are a perfect reflection of that passion.

Foster Dogs is a wonderful organization that shares their passion of animal rescue with the entire state of New York and beyond! Foster Dogs easily is the best resource to help get dogs off the streets into safe homes through their constant search to find incredible foster families. My non-profit animal rescue works with Foster Dogs daily to find safe and committed homes for dogs we have taken into our organization. The founder of Foster Dogs Sarah and her team are creative, passionate, loyal, and devoted to helping rescue organizations like mine.

Foster Dogs NYC is extremely generous and professional group. Not only do they post dogs in need of foster homes and those up for adoption, they donate to many local rescue groups. Whether it be helping fund a "hospice" dog, sending an email out for foster help, donating grooming, hosting adoption events, or sending much needed treats and donations to fosters, they are always looking to help out in any way they can! We are truly grateful for Foster Dogs and their support!

When I was looking to get involved in fostering I wasn't sure where to begin. FDNYC was a great starting place, and not only was I able to start fostering dogs, but I have found an amazing, supportive community in my city of dog lovers and advocates. I loved the organization so much I began volunteering and blogging with them! I love attending FDNYC events and being able to get advice whenever I need it. FDNYC is making great strides in educating the public about rescue and fostering, and not just in NYC!

In 2014, I finally moved into a dog-friendy apartment building, but my roommate was afraid of dogs and I was determined to convert him to become a dog-lover so I could hopefully adopt a dog of my own one day. My friend mentioned checking out Foster Dogs NYC (aka Foster Dogs Inc.) and to maybe try fostering adoptable dogs. At the time, I didn't realize this was a thing but was excited to give a deserving dog a home-- while also test driving dog ownership. Sarah, the founder, and the rest of the volunteers were responsive and super helpful with all of my concerns and questions. I was invited to a Foster Forum on Facebook, where I was able to network with other fosters and ask questions. After my first foster dog was adopted, I was hooked! I fostered four dogs over the course of about 6 months, and Foster Dogs Inc. was great at providing support, foster kits, etc. On my fifth foster, I "foster failed" and adopted my dog! While I cannot foster anymore (my dog is a grumpy old lady), I happily volunteer my time regularly. I'm proud to support an organization that supports other orgs and volunteers, and who is always pragmatic, professional, and has the dog and foster volunteer's best interests at heart.

Three years ago I was curious about fostering and got connected with Foster Dogs Inc - since then my family has fostered more than 25 dogs with this organization's support. Foster Dogs is consistently supportive of everyone in the community and is an invaluable resource for rescues, shelters, volunteers, dogs in need and dog lovers. They're well organized, efficient, compassionate, nonjudgmental and I've never met a more reliable and dedicated group of volunteers. The company I work for has relied on them to provide insight and guidance on numerous events to help dogs in need - Foster Dogs Inc are not only experts in their field but just plain wonderful people to work with. Foster Dogs Inc is my favorite nonprofit and I truly can't recommend the resources and support they provide to enough people. True role models for all of us who aspire to do good in our communities!

I first found Foster Dogs Inc. over 3 years ago when I was looking to volunteer. I recently loss my dog and I need to surround myself with dogs again but was not ready to adopt. Foster Dogs Inc. introduced me to fostering. Something I had no clue existed. I saw a post on social media asking for fosters. Right away I replied and completed an application. At the time Sarah the founder was fostering a gorgeous pup and I was smitten. On the day of pick up I meet Sarah, I told her about how much I enjoyed following the story of her foster pup. She introduced me to his sister, Hilda. Hilda and I immediately connected and she become my first and last foster dog. A week later my mom and I adopted Hunny fka Hilda. I knew then and there had to help Foster Dogs Inc. I began to volunteer my time in anyway possible. I am honored to know and work with such an amazing team. Thank you to Sarah for being an incredible leader.

Sarah and her team have been amazing to work with. I have fostered two dogs through FosterDogsNYC and she has always been very responsive to emails and any questions I have had about my foster pups. Additionally there are plenty of opportunities to bring the fosters to events to help get them adopted and out in public so more people see them. I have fostered through other organizations but FosterDogsNYC has by far been the most responsive and easiest to work with.

This is the reason why I started fostering dogs! I've heard of them before on social media and thought that the process to foster a dog would be tedious.
When I went to meet them at the BarkFest event, they were so welcoming and awesome! They answered every single question and the same night I applied to be added on to the foster roster. Low and behold I matched with an amazing organization.
I've also volunteered to a few of their events. Sara and Miriam are awesome ladies always with a smile on their face. This is a great organization!
