Every Dog Counts Rescue

Interested in Volunteering for the Puppers?

Every Dog Counts Rescue is currently seeking foster homes in the Indianapolis area and surrounding communities.  Foster homes with dogs AND without dogs are needed. 

Some of our dogs just need a temporary home (usually 1-2 weeks) to stay between transport runs (which usually occur on the weekends).  We will coordinate their vetting (at no cost to our foster families) so they are ready to be transported to longer-term foster homes or new adoptive families in other states. 

Other dogs may be selected to be adopted to local homes in the Indianapolis area by Every Dog Counts Rescue. Again, we will be responsible for their vetting and can be reached at any time there is a question, you will be going out of town, or an urgent need arises.

We often have dogs that have been injured or have an illness, so EDCR raises money for their medical expenses.  Then, we are in need of foster homes while they recover.  Occasionally we are also asked to bottle feed small puppies (and kittens) who no longer have their biological mothers.

If you are interested in becoming a foster family, please complete the EDCR Foster Application and mail or email to:  Every Dog Counts Rescue P.O. Box 108 * Zionsville, IN  46077  317.300.4EDC (phone) * 800.689.6046 (fax) EveryDogCountsRescue@gmail.com


Every Dog Counts Rescue has helped save the lives of over 3000 dogs since 2011! Our transport coordinators help acquire longer-term foster or new adoptive homes for dogs.  All of our transport drivers volunteer to drive a weekend transport leg, or help take our dogs for medical care.

If you are interested in learning more about volunteering as a transport driver, please complete the EDCR Volunteer Application and submit it to us at EveryDogCountsRescue@gmail.com.


Every Dog Counts Rescue has weekly adoption events on Saturday afternoons.  We are grateful to show a few of our adoptable dogs each week at either the Broad Ripple or Hamilton Town Center Three Dog Bakery stores.
