Foster homes are the lifeblood of any home-based rescue like ours.  Because we do not have a kennel facility, we rely on foster volunteers generous enough and good-hearted enough to take a dog in need into their homes and bring them back from abuse, neglect, and abandonment.  If you have a good home set-up in southern California, we'll handle the vet fees and walk over hot coals to get you set up as a foster for us. 

Email us at or call our hotline +1 (949) 400-5735 now to be a Pekingese Foster Home in Southern California!

Yes, it's hard to give up a dog you have nurtured in your home, but there are always more dogs to love.
