Saving dogs from unnecessary euthanasia.

Dogs are being euthanized for space all over our country, and specifically here in Kern County, where some of the highest kill rates exist in the state of California. We need your help.

About Foster Tales

Foster Tales adopts out dogs throughout all of California, and sometimes Canada. Our process includes an application that also works as the adoption agreement, an introductory phone call, virtual home check and meet & greet. ​

The overpopulation crisis in our area of Southern California is very bad. We are constantly trying to save dogs from needless euthanasia at the Kern County Animal Shelter (one of the highest kill shelters in the state of California). For that reason, we cannot hold dogs for long periods of time for adopters. If you are applying for a dog, please keep in mind that time is of the essence.
