Foster to Adopt Program
When adopting an adult dog, Salfid allows and encourages potential adopters with approved applications to foster the dog they are interested in for 2-3 weeks as a trial period before deciding whether or not the dog is a good fit for their home. We do not allow this trial program for puppies unless there are special circumstances.
Meet Bev. This pretty girl came to us 11/26 from Tennessee. She is a 2 year old Catahoula leopard dog mix roughly 25 pounds. She is very people and dog friendly. She would do best in an active home, with kids or other dogs, as she has lots of energy! She can jump high so a 6-8 foot fenced in home, leash walk only home, or a long lead would be best until she is trained and adjusted.
Here's an update from her foster:
She is doing great. Such a sweet girl. She is house trained and loves her crate (will take naps in there even when the door is open). She is so funny with her burst of energy. She will fly around the house then come snuggle on your lap. She likes to be close to a person. She belly’s up when she thinks she did something wrong or just doesn’t want to go where you want her to. She loves to give kisses and chase her toy balls. It’s amazing how high she can jump. She needs a house with a high fence. She is such a love.

7 year old Bogey is looking for a new home! His owners of 6 1/2 years had to move and could not take Bogey with. He is very upset being left behind. It is apparent his owners let Bogey rule the roost so he needs a dominant owner to teach him boundaries and rules. He is people friendly and can be dog tolerant, but ideally should not live with children who are not dog savy and who will not respect his space. Bogey will need a very patient foster or forever home as a lot has changed for him recently and he does not understand. He will need at least 2-3 weeks to adjust and warm up to new people, places, and doggie friends. He is housebroken and crate trained. He is also neutered and micro-chipped!
Handsome boy Cole is still looking for his forever home. He is a 1 year old lab/pit mix.
“Colar Bear” as we have been affectionately calling him is a furry ball of fun. Cole is a playful and energetic puppy at heart. He lives for his morning and afternoon walks. He is super smart and eager to learn. All he wants to do is please his people. Since the time he has been with me he has leaned basic commands. He loves every person and dog he has met. He is house and crate trained. Although he does well with all people he would probably do best in a home with older children as his playfulness can be rough at times. He would benefit from a large yard and being in an active environment. He would make a wonderful addition to your family!”
This beautiful girl is Icelyn, she’s a pretty little ittie mix who has been with us since 11/26/19 and has not had a single application yet. We would really love to get her into foster home ASAP or find her forever home so she doesn’t have to spend anymore time in a boarding kennel!
She is young, around 9/10 months old, is extremely friendly and affectionate with people, and likes to play with other dogs. She does need to learn some manners with other dogs as she just gets so excited she can be a little much for some dogs. Living in a kennel can be hard for any pup but especially the young ones as they are missing out on a lot of crucial puppy learning. Therefore, this behavior can be corrected with some training, socializing and structure. If you are interested in fostering or adopting Icelyn please apply now!

I'm Lola! I am a 2 year old Pit Bull Terrier mix. I arrived at Salfid 2.18.19 as an owner surrender. A good Samaritan saved me from a not so friendly situation but due to having multiple animals of her own I could not stay with her. My friends here at Salfid say I need a few minutes to warm up, but once I trust you I will come up to you on my own. Once given a slow introduction to people, I am very loving and friendly. However, I do not get along well with other animals. I am dog selective; I need to be adopted by a family where I am the only pet in the home. I am an active pup, preferring an active home or a fenced in yard for me to run my energy out. I love playing fetch, but I haven't fully grasped the idea of giving the ball back yet. I also enjoy toys and chew bones! I need a little reinforcement regarding potty training since I have been living in a kennel, but I learn quickly. If you think you can give me the love I deserve, please consider filling out an application for me today!
From Lola's former foster:
She's doing really well with having no accidents in the house but we have been taking her out every hour since she doesn't gives us any signals that she needs to go out. She is very cuddly and loves to be right by your side, on the couch or on the bed. She also loves car rides and she walks great on leash. She is very quite too, we have barely heard her bark. She hasn't chewed anything but she likes tennis balls. Loud noises seem to scare her so we are working on her confidence. She is a tad more distant with males than females though so we have been working on positives experiences with men.
Menina is looking for her forever. She came to us in May 2015, was adopted, but then returned as the former family could no longer keep her. She has been back with us since September 2019. The best possible fit home for her would be a home that could include other dogs given a proper meet and greet because she can be picky about her doggie friends. However, she loves any age humans! She is the absolute sweetest, loves to play, loves to cuddle, and is housebroken! She is great on leash and is a volunteer favorite to hangout with. She is approximately 4 years old and is a lab mixed breed with very short stubby legs. She is spayed and up-to-date on vaccinations.
Meet McKinley! This handsome dude is about 2-3 years old, neutered and up to date on shots. He gets along great with dogs of his size and tolerates bigger dogs to an extent. He certainly has no problem telling them to back off if they are pushy but can co exist peacefully for the most part. He’s currently being fostered in a home with cats, although he’s not quite sure about them. He’s learning some manners in his foster home and working on his potty training, although he’s not quite there yet. He’s also not a huge fan of men, but is learning they aren’t all big and scary. With a little bit of training and some extra love he’s sure to be a perfect addition to any family.
Boxer lovers, Meet Snowy!
Snowy is a very young, energetic pup who needs an experienced and active owner. She is estimated to be 3 years old. She was surrender to ACCT Philly 05/10/2019 because her owner did not have adequate housing. She came to us in July 2019. She will need some basic obedience and manners but currently knows sit. Her "worst" behavior is she likes to jump on people to say hello which could be too much for young kids until the behavior is fixed however it is an easy behavior to correct. She will also need work walking on a leash as she does like to pull however this is common in rescue dogs and easily workable. She was previously living with another dog and was dog tested with 3 of our other rescues so with the proper introduction could most definitely live with other pups. She was very interested in playing with the other dogs. She is spayed and UTD on vaccinations.

Tesla is approximately 2 years old and she is a pit bull mix who is currently living in a foster home. She loves other dogs and young children. Tesla needs controlled meets with new people, learning that she can trust them. She often barks and growls at new people, but quickly bonded with her foster family. She seems much more comfortable with men than woman. Her foster family is working closely with a trainer to work on better manners with new people. She is very intelligent and obedient. Multiple meet and greets would be a must prior to taking this sweet girl home, but if you ask her foster mom, it would be totally worth it. Tesla wants a home where the people understand that she needs time before you reach in to pet her. Your patience will pay off quickly and you will see that she really is a love bug. From her foster mom "Tesla truly is an amazing dog. She knows sit, stay, lay down, off, watch me, and my favorite is move since she is always laying at my feet while I cook. She loves water she is wonderful with kids."
Tucker is still looking for a forever home. He was returned to us after we became aware that his past owners weren’t treating him very nicely and he wasn’t happy in the home. His foster mom however speaks very highly of him. This was her response to us checking in on him the other day.
“Tucker is doing very well. He is very high energy and needs to learn some manners but he is such a sweetheart. He sleeps in his crate with the door open in his room. He dragged the dog bed into his crate the other day. He is very smart. I would recommend he goes to experienced Pitbull / big dog people in an active house. He loves to play but we’re also working on being calm. He gets along great with my dog Chino, they like to rough play in the backyard. He would do best with other big dogs because of his size. He is housebroken but does like to chew so we give him a lot of toys and bones to keep him occupied but he’s a big puppy who’s still learning. He is very intelligent and eager to please.”
