Connecting homeless dogs with people who want to foster!

Steering Committee

Our Steering Committee is the true reason for our organic growth over the years, after Foster Dogs was founded in 2009. After our incorporation in 2013 and earning our 501(c)(3) nonprofit status in 2014, our organization has saved innumerable lives. In 2016, we saved an average of one dog per day, about 365 in total! None of our work would be possible without our team of dedicated volunteers who ensure that our organization continues to grow and thrive! This team and manages the general course of our operations, from daily administrative tasks to running amazing events, to expanding each rescue group’s foster reach.
