CALDWELL, Idaho — As the new year approaches, one canine rescue in the Treasure Valley is seeking foster parents to help save dogs and place them in adoptive homes.

Elliot & Friends Canine Rescue is a new nonprofit in Canyon County that looks to utilize foster homes to place dogs with adoptive families. Foster parents provide safety and security for the dogs in their care while Elliot & Friends provides food, veterinary care, toys, and more. To ensure that dogs placed in foster homes will be a good fit, foster parents will have the ability to determine what types of dogs they take in, including breeds, sizes, ages, and the amount of training required.

Founded by Navy veteran Caleb Edwards, Elliot & Friends also seeks to help veterans adopt canine companions at a low-cost through their Veteran Adoption Program (VAP). When you foster with Elliot & Friends, you are directly contributing to the veteran community throughout the Treasure Valley by allowing the capacity to adopt dogs into new homes. The VAP relies heavily on individual and corporate sponsorships to cover the financial cost of fostering dogs when adopting them into new families through this incredible program.

Elliot & Friends is not limited to Canyon County-based families and is open to everyone in the Treasure Valley. For those not able to foster at this time, Elliot & Friends does offer volunteer positions. You can also donate directly to Elliot & Friends here.
