The DAS Foster program enables our community to save hundreds of animals each year that might otherwise take longer at being adopted. As a DAS foster, you provide a safe place for a dog to decompress before reaching their forever home. Those interested in becoming a volunteer foster can email

Puppy Program
Volunteer fosters will help ready 5-8 week old puppies too young for adoption for a period of 14-21 days.

Dog Transport Program
Volunteer fosters will help foster current adult dogs for a period of 24 hours to 2 weeks in readying them for transport to Northeastern shelters and rescue groups.
*We are currently developing a cat and kitten foster program but would love to have your information for when it becomes available.*
