In 2008, a small group of animal lovers realized the need to rescue animals from euthanasia in overpopulated shelters and Castaway Pet Rescue was born! Since then, we have helped over 1,800 dogs find the loving forever homes that they deserve! Castaway is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, volunteer run, all-breed dog rescue that is completely foster-home based. We take pride in focusing in on dogs with special needs that need to be addressed before they are adopted into loving homes. We do not have a physical shelter facility. Instead, we bring homeless dogs into our network of volunteer foster homes, where they receive medical care, training, and are given a change to acclimate to life outside the shelter or streets. Our foster homes aid in evaluating personality and temperament of the dogs to assist in providing the best adoptive home situation possible.
Because we so often take in animals that have costly medical expenses, we always need monetary assistance to help provide quality care of our animals in need. Anything counts!
We believe EVERYONE has something to offer when it comes to helping with our current pet overpopulation problem. Rescue is a team effort and we need you!
Become a foster home and open up your home to an animal in need. We cannot do what we do without generous and reliable foster homes. Please email for more information.
We are always looking for new volunteers to join our group. Volunteering with fundraising, marketing, photography, web design, social media and events are helpful.
