We are a foster-based rescue group, which means we don’t work out of a facility. Instead, we rely on foster homes to shelter and care for dogs until we've found the perfect family to adopt them.

Foster homes provide the necessary caregiving, training, and assessment to help our dogs find their forever homes, and Misunderstood Mutts Rescue could not exist without them!

When you foster for our rescue, we pay ALL expenses: food, toys, supplies, training, medication, and vet visits. The only thing you’re responsible for while fostering is caring for the dog until he or she is adopted. 

Fostering can be stressful at times, but it's a critical part of our adoption process because most of our dogs come from neglectful situations, often with a history of abuse, and they require time to adjust.
