Foster homes are the most important part of our rescue. Every week there are dogs in need of rescue in local and regional pounds. Without people willing to open their hearts and homes and offering to care for these dogs, we can not help rescue these homeless dogs. Foster homes provide the love and shelter while 4 Luv of Dog Rescue provides and pays for all necessities (food, kennel, medical care, etc.). Unfortunately, we don’t have enough foster homes for all the dogs we have accepted into our rescue. These dogs currently are staying at local boarding facilities or with temporary foster homes. Please consider providing one of them a foster or forever home and apply to become a foster home. If you can’t foster but still want to help, please make a donation towards our boarding expenses.

Urgent Dogs in Local & Regional Pounds Need Rescue!

Urgent! Help Needed!

We are aware of the following dogs in local and regional pounds that will need rescue soon if their owners do not come for them. We are unable to help rescue these dogs if we don’t have foster homes willing to care for them. Fostering can be the most rewarding and fulfilling thing a true dog lover can ever do to support dogs in need.

Please help by applying to become a Foster Home!

We are unable to get photos of all dogs needing rescue. Photos are posted asap when available.

There may be more dogs in the pound than what is listed here. If your dog is missing, please contact all the local pounds. The local pounds do not adopt dogs out to the general public. Only authorized rescue organizations are able to take unclaimed dogs from the pound after paying required fees.

Please realize that we have limited information about these dogs.  Until we can get them into a foster home and get a chance to know them better,  it is difficult to know such things such as if they are house broken or if they are good with kids.

Below are dogs in local pounds that we are aware of needing rescue:

Metro Pounds:

** Want to save the dogs? Please help by applying to become a foster home !  Metro area pounds do not do public adoptions (with exception of Finder claims), so their only way out is through a rescue organization.  Only authorized rescue organizations are able to take unclaimed dogs from the metro pounds after paying required fees.     

NO adoptable dogs (in metro area) were euthanized during 2013.


The following dogs are in need of rescue commitment BY the following dates:    


  • Lhasa: 5-7 Yrs, chocolate, was extremely matted!! -shaved down and looks much better.  Appears to have eye issues, blindness, not sure if total, sometimes appears to see maybe shadows, but not a lot otherwise.  We have been treating eyes and they are less red and seems to be much more comfortable, but may need drops the rest of dog's life unless eyes need to be removed.  Dog is a sweetheart!  Weighs about 20 lbs, mild tartar on teeth.  Has an ear infection which we have started treating also.   2
  • Japanese Chin: ~2 Yrs, white with red, wonderful little dog, 13.4 lbs, loves to give kisses and loves attention.  Gets along with other dogs, tries to play with cats, but not aggressively, maybe just a little too in their face.   2    ~To be accepted by 4 Luv of Dog Rescue

Below are dogs in regional pounds that we have been asked to help:


Want to save the dogs? Please help by applying to become a Foster Home!  Most pounds do not do public adoptions, so their only way out is through rescue. If a regional pound does accept adoptions we will try to list as such.
