“Saving one dog will not change the world, but surely for that one dog, the world will change forever.”



When you volunteer to foster a dog through Yola's Pet Fund, you volunteer to save a dog's life—our rescue dogs might require both emergency or longer-term homes. Yola's Pet Fund relies on animal foster homes to alleviate overcrowding in traditional shelters, give dogs the opportunity to learn crucial social skills before finding a forever home, and introduce animals to humans and play.

Fostering is a great fit for animal lovers who require a little flexibility. We welcome foster homes that can volunteer any length of time—sometimes just a day or two, sometimes a couple of weeks or even a couple of months—no matter what you're able to provide, there will likely be an opportunity for you to make a huge difference in a dog's life. Because dogs have the chance to shine in a foster home environment, it increases the odds that they'll be adopted into a loving forever home.

Fostering is emotionally hard work, but tremendously rewarding. When you choose to open your home to a homeless pet awaiting a forever home, you create space in shelters for more homeless animals to be rescued.


The adoption process begins with an application form and concludes after the successful completion of a two week trial period designed to ensure a smooth transition for the animal and the new adopter. 

Our adoption fee is minimum donation of $300, which helps cover medical examinations and care prior to adoption.

Potential adopters are required to foster for at least one night. Once your application is reviewed and approved we honor a two week trial period to make sure your new pet fits in well with your family and lifestyle.

Any animal adopted from Yola's Pet Fund is always welcomed back if for any reason you can no longer care for him or her at any point in their life.

Adopters must be at least 24 years old to adopt.

Adopters who rent their home must have landlord approval in order to adopt.
