WHO WE ARE
Shayne’s Fosters (formerly known as Shayne’s Rescue) is made up of foster families in Western Washington who are dedicated to saving the lives of dogs who are mostly rescued from the street and from high kill shelters. We have re-homed thousands of rescue dogs.
WHAT WE DO
We work with rescue groups located primarily in Texas. These groups rescue dogs off the street, from high kill shelters, and from other situations. They transport the dogs to western Washington for pre-adoption, to adoption events, and to our fosters, and we foster the dogs until they are placed in their forever homes.
WHY WE DO IT
We foster because sometimes dogs need fostering before they are ready to be adopted, and dogs that are not adopted at adoption events need a place to go. Our goal is to save the lives of as many rescue dogs as possible, and get them placed into loving homes where they will bring love and joy to their human families.
WE ARE VERY HONORED TO BE ABLE TO WORK WITH SOME OF THE MOST AMAZING RESCUE GROUPS IN TEXAS
