The Rescue Train is located in Los Angeles, California. We do not own a facility. That means every pet we rescue needs a foster home. Simply put, the more foster homes we have, the more lives we can save! Volunteers who foster for the Rescue Train care for a rescued cat or dog in his/her own home until a FURever home is found. Fosters don’t need a freight-load of experience, they just need to provide a safe and loving temporary home.
Being a foster-based rescue lets us learn about our cats and dogs in a home setting and helps set them up for safe and successful adoptions. When we live with a foster pet, we get to know their likes and dislikes, their quirks and most adorable traits.
