"For-Ever" Foster. These dogs are all in need of forever foster.

What this means:  Our rescue maintains ownership and responsibility. We take care of their medications, maintenance, veterinary and special diets if needed. These dogs all have either special needs (medications, disabilities, vision or other impairments) Therefore we wish to maintain ownership of the dogs so we can guarantee their care for the remainder of their lives. They are all healthy but may have blindness, incontinence, daily oral or eye medication these are just a few examples.

What this means to you:   You would be providing a home for a dog in need and you wouldn't be incurring current or future care or medical expenses since this is covered by the rescue. You would be providing love and attention for the dog for the remainer of its life. Most are seniors but range from 7 yrs on up. We are looking for people that are home a lot, retired or work out of home as these dogs require some extra love and attention. If you are interested in finding our more please contact us openarmsrescue@hotmail.com or (760) 470-7643
