DOG'S IN NEED OF A FOSTER
Streetdog Foundation does not have a facility, so we depend on volunteers to provide loving foster homes for our dogs while they wait to find the perfect family. Streetdog provides all of the food, toys, medical care and other needed items. Volunteers provide the love! Fill out our Foster Application today or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have you ever seen such soulful eyes paired with such a handsome smile?? Ali is a tender-natured boy who gets along with everyone! He loves being outside and going for walks and he would love to do that with YOU.
Ali is in boarding right now and is looking for a foster. He’s dog, cat and kid friendly! Click here for more information on fostering.
Ekana had a collar embedded in his neck and the wounds were quite severe, some of the worst damage we’ve seen. We believe he has lived on a chain his entire life. But he’s a Streetdog now and that means nothing but love from here on out!
Ekana is healing nicely and ready for a foster home. If you’re interested in opening your home to this sweet boy you can fill out a foster application here.

We were recently alerted to a group of dogs living behind a downtown business. A kind group of MLGW drivers were feeding this pack that included a pregnant female, an adult male, and a young pup that we think is from mama's last litter.
After over 48 hours we were able to get Momma (Moana) and her pup (Kala). Kala has a severe case of mange and our vet is still assessing her. The biggest surprise of all...her (maybe) momma is pregnant! Momma has a whole bunch of puppies in her belly that will never know a life on the streets.
We are still actively working on getting daddy. We love our sweet Kala, Moana & Daddy and will update as we know more.
We will have many little mouths to feed and bodies to heal. If you would like to donate to their care please click here. We are so very grateful for any and all support!
Kumar is looking for his next foster (or forever!) home. Fill out a foster application here!
"I am working on getting comfortable with people coming into "my" house. My fosters are constantly inviting robbers and murderers in. It's not my fault they are such bad judges of character! I love my lady-dog friends of all sizes and temperaments. I even get along with those sneaky cats in the house! My favorite thing to do outside of patrolling my neighborhood is taking car rides. I like going anywhere, but Hollywood Feed is my favorite!"
Kumar is a 5 year old Shepherd/Canaan mix. He is a big lovable pup with a lot of personality! He loves to play outside and go on walks and car rides. Kumar is very trusting and loyal to “his” humans, but can be shy with new people. He enjoys quiet time, and would be best with a family without children and a calm home. His foster says that he loves kitties, and squeaky toys! Don’t worry- he waits until the morning alarm rings to start squeaking his favorite toy. He also loves to be brushed and even vaccumed! His foster mom says “He is really one of the most loving, trusting dogs I've ever met.”
Like most of our Streetdogs, Kumar has had a rough start in life. In this case, rougher than most. Kumar was hit by a car and left for dead. A kind lady saw this and ran to his aid. She loaded him in her car and took him to the animal hospital. Kumar had several broken bones, including a particularly nasty compound fracture of his leg. He still bears the scars of this injury today.
The vet and staff did a wonderful job of patching this boy up and putting him back together. The healing process was quite lengthy. Kumar however had hidden scars that were much deeper and would take much longer to heal. It became evident right away that Kumar had been beaten; apparently often, and by one or more men. He was wary of women, but Kumar had no trust at all for men. It has taken over a year to get this boy rehabilitated, to teach him that not all humans are bad. As you can see in his pictures, Kumar has conquered his fear of men!
We have the staff of the clinic, and our dedicated Streetdog volunteers to thank for Kumar's new found faith in humanity. Kumar got regular walks several times a week, and even took a road trip to Arizona last summer!
Kumar truly was one of our most difficult rehabs. He is proof that love and patience can bring out the best in any dog (or anyone!). I am so glad that no one gave up on this boy. He is worth every minute of time and effort that so many people put in to him. He is a loving and happy boy. He is also great lesson in redemption for anyone who cares to get to know him.
Thanks Kumar for sharing your lesson with us!
Hi! My name is Lena and I've just recently joined the Streetdog team. It took a bit of convincing and some yummy treats in a trap to get me to start believeing that i had finally met some humans that wanted to help me not hurt me. I'm still pretty timid and shy around people but I learn to trust a little bit more everyday. I LOVE to be around other dogs though, and playing is my absolute favorite. I have lived my whole life outside going from porch to porch looking for meals and clean water.
Doc checked me out at the vet and I'm pretty healthy all things considered. I've got to get a good healthy diet started since I've never known what that is like, but that's going to be easy! I'm about 1.5-2 years old. Everything is still pretty overwhelming to me but I am trying to work in being a big girl for my rescuers and foster mom. Walking on leashes is kind of scary but I'm getting the hang of it. Meeting kitty cats was equally as scary but I'm pretty sure they are ok. I'm going to keep having a few playdates to make sure.
I'm spending some time in a foster home now decompressing and trusting people more and more and pretty soon you will see me out and about at adoption events so keep your eyes peeled for me!
Update 2/9/17: I am a totally healthy boy these days and I LOVE a ball. I can play with my ball all day and all night. I have been in the best foster home getting to be more comfortable with new people. I love to run and play and give the best snuggles ever (at least I think so). If you love to throw a ball, I am your guy!
Lenny here – pleased to meet you all! I’m a young little guy from the streets of Memphis, TN. I’ve got a pretty great story to tell ya about! In July, the hottest month of the year, I was wandering aimlessly through the street looking for something…anything…to eat or drink to make it through the evening. I got the smells of a sandwich shop and followed my nose to see if it would lead me somewhere. I wound up outside of a Lenny’s Sub Shop where I huddled around the door for several hours begging for a scrap or a drink of water. Even with my puppy dog eyes I couldn’t convince anyone to buy me a sandwich. I was just about to give up when a big maroon van pulled into the parking lot. I knew immediately that this was no ordinary van. It was magic! (and it smelled like doggies hehe). The people got out and casually strolled over to me while telling me what a good boy I was. The man went inside and bought some meat and water while the woman kept singing to me. I liked her voice a lot.
The kind people, magic van, deli meat and water were all too overcoming for me and I gave in and let them put a leash around my neck. I gobbled up treats of all sorts while they took me to safety. I slept inside on comfy blankets for the first time in my whole life that night – and every night since as a matter of fact. It was awesome. I’ve been gaining weight, getting vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. I tested heartworm negative and have been started on some monthly preventatives. I am currently in boarding and in search of a FOSTER or better yet FOREVER home! I’ve got plenty of love to give and the cutest little face you’ve ever seen – just look! Do you wanna be best friends?

In mid-September we were alerted to a group of dogs living behind a downtown business. A kind group of MLGW drivers were feeding this pack that included a pregnant female, an adult male, and a young pup that we think is from mama's last litter.
After over 48 hours we were able to get Momma (Moana) and her pup (Kala). Moana has a severe case of mange, heavy heart worms and she also has a tick-borne disease called, Ehrlichia. The biggest surprise of all...she was pregnant! Just a week after rescue Moana gave birth to four puppies that will never know a life on the streets.
Moana is slowly getting her strength back and she is just the best mama to her babies!

Me and my closest fleas were wandering down the street dragging the latest in 10ft long chain link fashion! I was really sick and tired, but these nice people spent some time giving me a few treats. After that, the big one picked me up and put me in his car and took me to his house. There my new friends gave me some flea medicine which got rid of all my thousands of fleas, it took a couple of days, but the itching finally went away. We then went on a car ride again and I got a bunch of shots and even got a cool tattoo on my belly! Life kinda settled down for a bit, I got to go on walks, play with the other dogs, I even got to play with that cat thing...I don't think the cat liked me very much. My parents had to take me back to the vet's office a couple of times to get rid of my heart worms, but now I'm healthy as can be.
I'm about 1.5 years old. I love to play with other dogs, all humans, and even kids. But sometimes I get super excited and can't control my booty shakes so I have been known to knock into things with it. I'm currently in a foster home with other dogs including Cosmo, who is also a new Streetdog looking for his forever family. We are living the good life. I get to go on car rides, walks, and even have my very own kennel and bed to hang out in when my fosters aren't home. I don't mind it at all. Cats are a no go though unless they love to play chase. I don't want to eat them but I love to chase them around and around!! I can't wait to attend my first adoption day and meet some new great Streetdog volunteers and fans; and maybe even my forever family!
Everyone meet Sky! Sky is a very special and strong little guy. Sky was brought into our vet as small puppy with parvo, which is a grim diagnosis in many cases. However, despite the odds, Sky fought so hard and he was able to beat parvo and continue to grow into a happy healthy boy. Unfortunately, his humans, didn't want the expense of treating the parvo and never returned to pay for or get him. But fortunately for Sky, Doc is the absolute best and took Sky in to his clinic and is now working with Streetdog Foundation to help him find the most perfect forever home. Sky is a 6 month old lab/husky mix. He weighs about 40lbs and is sugar sweet. He gets to spend some time making friends in doggy day care a few days a week and is an immediate friend to all he meets.
Sky likes to go for walks and spend time outside. He likes to swim as well in the kiddie pool in daycare. He is eager to please and would get along great in a home with cats, dogs, kids and anything else you've got. He's just a silly little lovebug! He's spent most of his life so far living in boarding at Grace getting better and waiting on a new home to bust him out so the staff is working with him on potty training issues and holding it. Sky will be neutered and microchipped now that he is old enough and he will hopefully be going to a foster home soon! In the meantime, Sky is adoptable with us now and if you think he would make the perfect addition to your family let us know!!
Toby spent most of his life living on a chain and walking on a hard surface. One day he was wandering towards a busy intersection when a good Samaritan spotted him and scooped him up. He had hookworms and heartworms but he’s been treated and is now a healthy happy boy!
Toby was born around 2011, so he’s well past the puppy stage and has lots of love to give! He gets along with kids and cats but prefers to be the only dog in the household.
Toby is in boarding right now and would love to have a foster home to call his own! Fostering is free and even a weekend out of boarding can do wonders for a pup! Click here for more information on fostering.
