Brooklyn, NY 11231

(We understand that this is very long, but being a foster is a key step in making sure that our rescued dogs end up in fantastic homes. Some dogs need a lot of help making the transition from shelter or street to a home, and we want to make sure that our fosters are willing and able to help us do this). Thank you for your understanding!
