Advocates 4 Animals is an all foster based rescue and all of our dogs live in approved foster homes. We do not have a shelter or building where our dogs are housed, visits to meet our dogs usually take place within the foster’s home to allow time to interact and truly see the dogs personality. Your application will be sent to the foster parent who will review the application, check your veterinary and personal references and contact you.

PLEASE be aware that our foster families are busy and it may take several days for them to review your application and be able to respond to you.  Please be patient and they will contact you as soon as they can.

Adoption Process:

When you see a dog/puppy you are interested in, fill out an Adoption Application and indicate the name of the dog(s) you would like to meet.  

The Adoption Application is forwarded to the foster family and they will review your application and verify your information, then contact you. At that time, feel free to ask any/all questions you have regarding the dog/puppy. Please allow several days since they usually have several applications to review.

If your Adoption Application is approved, the foster family will set up a meet & greet and if you decide to adopt, you will complete the Adoption Contract and then welcome your new family member.

-  We do offer a 7 day trial adoption period.  If for any reason the new pet doesn't work out, you may return them to us.

-  Advocates 4 Animals reserves the right to decline any applicant who does not meet our adoption requirements.

-  We do ask that all potential adopters be within (100) miles of St. Louis, Missouri.
