Foster a Dog


Want to help, but you’re just not sure if you’re ready to adopt? If so, then please consider becoming a foster for an It's a Dog's Life Rescue pup! We supply everything you need so it won’t cost a penny to foster one of our sweet dogs.


As we are a new rescue we're looking to build our network of fosters so please don't hesitate to reach out to us with any questions. The more people who open their homes for fostering, the more dogs we can save!


To join our foster family, please email a completed foster application to [email protected]. This rescue is all volunteer-based so it can take up to three business days to process your application. 


It's a Dog's Life Rescue does not have a separate facility to house our dogs so we’re completely reliant on our wonderful foster homes to help us save as many lives as we can.


Remember - adopt don't shop!!  There are so many loving dogs that need our help to find a great forever home.



Adoption Requirements

It's a Dog's Life Rescue places dogs in forever homes to live with loving and responsible individuals and families. If you are outside of the greater Charlotte area, please don't let that stop you from considering adopting one of these great dogs. We can work with you to arrange transport. 

To answer general questions you may have about the adoption process, please review the initial adoption guidelines below.

  • All adopters must be 18 years of age and live in a place where pets are allowed. We will ask for proof of landlord approval before processing the adoption application if you are currently in a lease.
  • There must be a safe, warm and dry indoor space for the dog to live. A home visit will be scheduled prior to approval of the adoption application to verify.
  • All dogs come with the vetting appropriate for their age. The adoption fee of $175 covers this level of vetting and the follow up vetting of spaying/neutering the pet and administering a rabies vaccination. 
  • The adoption form must be filled out in its entirety and emailed to  [email protected]
  • Please note that submitting an adoption application does not guarantee that the pet of your choice will be available for adoption. We reserve the right to refuse any adoption to any person for any reason.
  • As this rescue is all volunteer based, it can take up to three business days to process your application. We appreciate your patience.

Most importantly - thank you for taking the time to learn about this rescue and the great pups that can become part of your family. Please don't hesitate to reach out and get involved!!
