Foster Dogs


We have fostered more than 75 dogs and puppies at WOOFS! Dog Training Center.  We take in pregnant momma dogs and we whelp, raise and socialize the puppies until they are old enough to be adoptable.  We have raised litters in cooperation with Lost Dog and Cat Rescue, the Animal Welfare League of Arlington, and the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria and have also fostered for the Washington Humane Society.  We appreciate the hard work that our partner organizations do to save and improve the lives of so many animals.

Organization:  Washington Humane Society

Valentine was a sweet, engergetic young male Pit Bull who was abandoned by his family when the moved from their apartment in August of 2012.  He lived at the Washington Humane Society for six months before coming to us with the hope that he could live in day care while he found a permanent home.  Day care turned out to be a little overstimulating, but he still stayed with us as a non-day care dog for seven months, learning some obedience behaviors and playing long games of fetch with our day care team.
