About the Volunteer Role

As the (Virtual) Foster Coordinator, your main responsibility is to coordinate committed fosters with incoming rescue dogs and screen new foster applicants to support Paws of L.A. Rescue’s life saving missions.

This is a great way to be part of saving lives at risk from the comfort of your own home! We cannot rescue without fosters, so your role is so very important to each dog we want to save.

When you’re not looking for fosters to match our potential rescue dogs, you’ll interview incoming foster applicants, conduct meticulous virtual home checks, and approve fosters based on results.

You’ll understand the foster’s strengths and challenges to facilitate a successful match.

  • Manage foster email to coordinate new dog intakes and respond to inquiries about our foster program in a timely manner.

  • Ensure accurate, timely documentation concerning foster families screenings and home checks.

  • You have excellent verbal and writing skills with the ability to communicate in a positive & bright manner.

  • You foresee and evaluate issues accurately while displaying sound judgement.

  • Experience in staff recruitment is a plus!


  • Time Commitment: 1-2 hours a week. We do not have a solidified weekly time requirement since you'll create your schedule based on scheduling screenings for incoming applications.

  • We'd like you to be part of our group text collaboration.

  • Proficiency in Microsoft Office and GoogleSuite

  • Expert in email and Google calendar functioning
