"We are so grateful for A Journey Home Dog Rescue and the care they provided for our pup, until we met him. The rescue and his foster saved his life and we're so happy he ended up in our home. Chance has changed our lives in so many ways and we are so happy to have found him, and A Journey Home! A Journey Home will always hold a special place in our hearts and we hope everyone gets to experience the joy that comes from saving a dog's life."

- Natalie Torres and Joel Sandoval



"For our family, fostering has been a way that we can help and give back to our community together as a family. All 10 in our family can help with the dogs in some small way. By having all 8 of our kids surround these dogs with love and attention, it completely socializes the dogs and they experience kids of all ages just by living in our home. Our kids have learned true self sacrifice, responsibility, love, patience, and kindness through fostering these pups, and we are so thankful we have had these opportunities to love them."

- Donna Biernacki


Foster to Adopter

"The process for us to become Bean’s forever family was really easy. There is always an adjustment period when bringing a new dog home but it is so much fun to watch as they come out of their shell and you get to know their personality. After a couple weeks we knew that Beanie was meant to stay with us. A Journey Home Dog Rescue was there to guide us every step of the way, beginning to end. If you have ever thought about fostering/adoption, please open your heart to an animal in need!"

- Melissa Baggett
