Save the Dals couldn't have done it without your continued support!

Save the Dalmatians is a 100% volunteer organization it has no paid employees all funds are used for the rescue and rehoming of dogs, i.e. spay/neuter, food, vaccinations, microchips, veterinary care, boarding, shelter adoption fees. Charitable donations are tax-deductible. We do not have kennels. We rely mostly on foster homes however if there is not a foster home available at the time of rescuing a dalmatian we must board them in private facilities at an average cost of $15 per day. Please make a donation today so we can continue to save Dals tomorrow!

We are a non-profit, tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization. Checks should be made payable to Save the Dalmatians and sent to:

Volunteer your time

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Save the Dalmatians!

Foster Homes

Foster homes must be in the Southern California area. Our requirements for foster homes are a secure fenced yard with at least a six foot fence, any children in the family must be at least six years of age, the foster Dalmatian must be allowed to live and sleep indoors with the foster family and the foster family must be willing to provide housebreaking and light obedience training. We prefer foster families that own their own homes in order to avoid landlord problems. Fostering can be done on a short term basis of a few weeks or until the Dalmatian finds a home, which can take a month or more. If you would like to provide a foster home, please send us an email.

Home checks

Before we place our Dalmatians in an adoptive home, we do a home check to ensure that the home is a safe, secure environment for one of our Dalmatians. The home check involves walking through the backyard noting the height of fence and gates, checking to see if gates are padlocked, seeing if there is anything the dog could climb on to get over the fence, etc. Inside the home we look for hazards the dog could get into such as cleaning supplies or trash cans. We have a home check form that our volunteers complete and fax to us. We need home checkers in all areas of Southern California. If you would like to do home checks for us, please send us an email.

Socialize or Housebreak a Dalmatian

Socialization can involve playing with the rescued Dalmatians or taking them for walks. It is good for the rescued Dalmatians to meet new people and interact with them. Housebreaking would involve having the Dalmatian live at your home for about two to three weeks until the dog has learned proper elimination habits. Requirements for a family interested in housebreaking Dalmatians would be the same as for foster homes (above). If you would like to socialize or housebreak a Dalmatian, please send us an email.

Assistance at Events

We often participate in or coordinate events and always need volunteers to help at the events. Volunteers can do things such as staff our booth, assist in showing Dals to potential adopters at events, help with event activities such as games and agility training. The best way to keep informed of any events we are planning is to join our newsletter/announcements group. You may also send us an email.
