“Hey you! Are you coming to adopt me today?” Eleven is ready to meet adopters at the NKLA Pet Adoption Center! This 2 year old girl originally was in a #4days4life foster home, where we learned she’s friendly with people (including kids), great in the house, and got along well with her canine foster brother. And she’s nice to walk on leash! She joined our program and has made quick work of wooing volunteers and showing off her fun play style in playgroups. She’d make a great addition to tons of types of homes! Go meet her from 12p-8p today! #AdoptEleven#dogfriendly#adoptme#goodgirl
LOS ANGELES: Can you foster a shelter dog for FOUR DAYS? Yep! Just FOUR DAYS is all they need! What a fantastic initiative by the local LA open-intake city shelters. Please read!
Volunteer Dani wrote, "We have the 4th of July approaching and last year we started a program at East Valley called #4days4life where we asked members of the community to help us save lives by taking a dog into foster for at least 4 days...over the long holiday weekend, as 4th of July is our busiest weekend of the year (we had 264 intakes last year at our East Valley shelter alone) because of all of the dogs that run away because they're scared of the fireworks. Most of those dogs are reunited with their families quickly, so the influx is only temporary. Prior to last year, most city shelters euthanized prior to the weekend to create space, because we simply don't have enough available kennels to house that many animals, even temporarily. Veronica, our New Hope Coordinator came up with the #4days4life idea and I'm proud to say, we saved every dog....not a single euthanization. We actually had so many fosters decide to keep their dogs that we felt the influence of #4days4life for months afterward.
Because we were so successful with the idea, LA Animal Services is allowing all city shelters to promote this program this year at all of the city shelters! Hopefully we'll be able to save a lot of animals. I'm worried because it is not novel anymore, that we won't have as high of a turnout, which all the shelters will sorely need.
To foster in the LOS ANGELES area for Fourth of July holiday, please email certified shelter volunteer Dani at firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP! You can also stop by one of the 6 LA City Shelters tomorrow (Sunday 11a-5p), to pick up your temporary foster. You can print a foster application online at LAAnimalServices.com/volunteer/foster-program or fill out the foster application when you arrive at the shelter.
There are animals of all sizes and all ages. 4 days will literally save their life.

Betty's foster mom says she's great in her crate, gets along nicely with Strummer (and has played well with other pups at the shelter), walks politely on leash, and is very mellow. She's such a sweet gentle soul! Please help us share Betty for rescue or adoption so she doesn't have to return to the South LA Animal Shelter after the #helliday.#pitbullsarelove#fireworkssuck
#4days4life 🐶🇺🇸🐶 I know some of you are staying in town this holiday weekend... So, I ask you to help save some lives!
It's only for 4 days!
This little amount of time will really have a big impact on the East Valley shelter.
This is a great chance if you have ever wanted to foster but can't commit the time, or if you have ever wanted a dog but cannot have one due to whatever reason.
You know you will feel great for helping to save some 🐶s lives ! 👌🏻👏🏻👍🏻
All the info you need is in the pic, but feel free to ask me or @friendsofeastvalley any questions !
Can you foster 1 dog for 4 days?
Easy breezy. #4days4life needs temporary fosters. Please visit the website in our bio for more info 🇺🇸
Just a few months ago he was a street dog in Korea- I think he likes it here. 🧡 So we want to tell everyone- Don’t. Buy. A. Dog. Love, gully. (*and all the other dogs that need homes and are stuck in the crowded shelters right now.). Even just foster for the upcoming 4th of July holiday- help make room in the shelters! go to @apurposefulrescue website and help a dog for a few days. #4days4life#gnn
