Heather Peterson
Founder & Puppy Foster
I founded Lovebugs Rescue back in October 2010, after volunteering with rescue dogs for several years.

I had adopted a small Chihuahua named Kaya who was a special needs case; through that my love for rescue began. I wanted to make a difference. Kaya passed away a year after I adopted her, but she is the initial inspiration behind Lovebugs Rescue. Kaya, like many other dogs, was discarded in the shelter system. Many are misunderstood and become fearful in a new situation. Without rescue organizations, such as Lovebugs Rescue, these dogs would never be looked at and would likely end up being euthanized. By bringing a dog into a home environment, they are able to decompress and begin to feel safe.  This is why foster homes are so crucial to saving these dogs from uncertain death. I’m proud of what Lovebugs Rescue has become since our inception. We have a loyal group of animal loving volunteers who dedicate their time to help our dogs.

I’ve volunteered with several dog rescue groups over the last 15 years but at this point I exclusively foster for Love Bugs Rescue. I first met Heather – founder of Love Bugs – about 7 years ago when we both volunteered for another dog rescue organization. Heather was clear on her vision on how she wanted to run and represent her rescue and I wholeheartedly agreed.  It’s been a fun and rewarding experience to support Lovebugs since Heather founded it. I wear many hats with the rescue to include fostering dogs as well as coordinating with other team members to make sure they have everything they need. I also assist with some back-end technology tools to help the rescue run more efficiently. I look forward to many more years and pups along the way.

I have been an animal lover all my life and had reached a point where I felt the need to give back in memory of all the animals who touched and enriched my life so much.
Victoria Coonradt
PARVO Foster
I have been an animal lover all my life and had reached a point where I felt the need to give back in memory of all the animals who touched and enriched my life so much.

I heard about Lovebugs Rescue through another volunteer foster for Lovebugs. I started volunteering in November of 2014 and initially helped with administrative duties and at adoption events. I did that for a while until I got the call one day asking if I could foster a dog, and that is how fostering began for me. Things changed again for me when on Easter Sunday 2015, I received a call from the director of Lovebugs asking me if I would consider fostering 3 PARVO puppies who were in the shelter and at risk of euthanasia. Being unfamiliar with PARVO, but knowing that it was a deadly virus, I hesitated momentarily and then said yes. That is how I have become the PARVO foster home for Lovebugs. To date (June 2017) I have fostered 40 dogs for Lovebugs and most of them have been PARVO survivors. It is rewarding beyond words to be involved with saving these puppies who are literally on death’s doorstep. To watch them go from sick and discarded little beings to healthy and happy puppies and then on to loving homes is heartwarming to say the least.

Before volunteering with Lovebugs I predominantly had rescue dogs. I currently have three dogs and two of them were Lovebugs “”foster failures”” or “”foster successes””, however you choose to look at it. Two out of forty is not bad.

Volunteering with Lovebugs is very fulfilling and meaningful. Not only does it provide these precious dogs with a second chance, but it also brings such joy and happiness to those who adopt from Lovebugs. I’m proud to be a part of the Lovebugs team and associated with such dedicated individuals.”

I foster in memory of my beloved Yorkie, Bam Bam.  The one thing he taught me is to love everyone.  I had so much love for him, why not open my home to animals in need and offer a safe and loving environment.  I’ve learned rescue dogs are incredibly forgiving of whatever life they’ve lived prior to arriving at my home.  Every dog is so different, and I learn so much from each one.  I’ve met some remarkable dogs and it’s been such a rewarding experience matching them with the right adopters and seeing them live their happily ever after.

When I visit the shelter, I look for the most broken dogs who have given up because they know their human gave up on them. I am overjoyed when I see a once broken soul blossom into the most loved and happy dog. My heart melts that moment I get my first kiss or tail wag!  It’s humbling to be a part of their journey wherever that may lead. I have loved every single one of them with all of my heart. I hope that when it’s my time, I will be reunited at the rainbow bridge with some of my special Lovebugs fosters.

We became interested in dog rescue during our ten years living on St Kitts and Nevis in the Caribbean.

Most dogs on the islands are not considered pets and many are treated badly: not enough food and water, no veterinary care, etc. Some are tied up in agricultural fields to help farmers protect their crops from monkeys. Demodectic mange is rampant and so are tick diseases such as Ehrlichiosis. When we returned from the Caribbean (bringing one rescued dog with us) we wanted to continue helping dogs in need and found Lovebugs Rescue via an internet search. We were very impressed with their work as illustrated on their web site. The requirements from Lovebugs Rescue are that you participate in adoption events and show your foster dog to potential adopters. Fostering rescued dogs is very rewarding and we would recommend it to anyone who loves dogs. The more foster families available, the more dogs can be rescued!

I’ve been a foster with Lovebugs Rescue for 2 years, as of July 2017. While it has been a lot of work, it has been one of the most rewarding ways I’ve experienced to give back to my community.

I’ve learned a ton about dog training, raising pups, socializing dogs and general dog health/medical procedures.  I’ve met some amazing people both within the Lovebugs Rescue family as well as ‘forever families’ who have adopted our pups. We currently have two dogs who are both rescues and one of them (Gus) is an adoption from Lovebugs Rescue. Lovebugs worked with my comfort level as well. I didn’t want to bottle feed or foster any pregnant dogs initially until I had more experience. Now after two years, I’m fostering a mom and her litter and feel confident given my level of experience. If you’re looking to make a difference and you LOVE dogs, this is truly a wonderful opportunity.

It is so rewarding and inspiring knowing that I can help make a positive difference in an animals life. I’ve been fostering and have also put on some fundraising events to raise funds to help offset their ongoing medical expenses. Photographed with me is Skippy one of my foster dogs. He was rescued from Moreno Valley shelter after he had been hit by a car and was left laying in the street. He sat in the shelter for a week when Lovebugs saw him and scooped him to safety. Skippy had to have surgery on his leg to put a plate in so it could heal. He was a pretty active fella, but I fostered him all the way through his recovery process and now he is living in the perfect home in Los Angeles with another dog to pal around with.

I met Heather when volunteering for another rescue organization. When she started Lovebugs Rescue, I fostered their very first pregnant mother with pups.

Lovebugs Rescue went to the Riverside shelter to pull some adult dogs, when the rescue coordinator at the shelter explained that one of their pregnant dogs was in trouble. She was scheduled to be euthanized if they couldn’t find a rescue to take her.  Needless-to-say, she hitched a ride back to Orange County with Lovebug Rescue and quickly settled into my home. Her name was Precious and she was a black poodle with 6 puppies. I’ve been fostering with Lovebugs ever since and have done a variety pack of moms with pups, orphaned puppies, bottle kittens, adult dogs – you name it! Rescue is very rewarding because it’s a way of giving back to the community. I’m a teacher and it’s fun to have kids come over for play dates with the puppies to help socialize them. My current two dogs, Crystal and Tahoe, are rescue mutts and there is no better breed than RESCUE!

After retiring from our day jobs, Richard and I fell in love with puppies in need. We have volunteered at shelters, watched neighbor dogs, and we take all of our pets on vacations with us. When we are home, we find fostering to be so rewarding. These babies in need are very grateful to have folks who care. We do care and want them to find a good home. This is little Ace. Ace was a hospice pup. He came to us expecting to live out his last few days. But Ace had other ideas. He loved watching foster puppies come and go to their forever homes for three years before he passed. He was our miracle boy. Ace would sit by the puppy room door watching over so many babies. I think that might just be why we have had around 400 furbabies come through our doors.

We foster with Lovebugs Rescue because it saves lives!  Caring for puppies in our home, with our own pets, is a stepping stone in preparing a homeless puppy for a loving, forever home. The skills, training and love that we provide as fosters can make a huge positive difference in finding a permanent home for each puppy. As a family, we also enjoy all the benefits of endless puppy snuggles and cuteness overload! Our kids learn valuable skills and grow as responsible care-takers.
With fostering, you get the joy caring for puppies and the satisfaction of making a positive contribution to an overwhelmed shelter tasked with caring for dogs in need.  You become a voice for each dog in your care, and a guide on their path to a positive future. It is rewarding to see them begin to blossom in just a couple of weeks. Helping just one dog, even for a short time, makes a big difference. We love getting to know each puppy, figuring out their personalities, and helping them learn how to trust and love.  It’s rewarding to find the perfect family for each pup and then to continue to hear from them as they grow up in their forever home.
We are so thankful to Heather and Lovebugs Rescue for giving us this wonderful opportunity to make a difference!

Daniel suggested that we become fosters to see if having a dog would fit into our lifestyle. After a 20-minute phone call with Stacey, we got our first foster dog – Pickle – and our love for dogs was born. As we learned more about dog issues (medical, abandonment and more), we couldn’t turn away from being volunteers with Lovebugs. We wanted to make a difference in the community and Lovebugs was a great fit for us – and we truly believe in its mission. We went from being a foster family, to volunteers at local events, to current administrative assistants. Although we are no longer able to foster dogs in the organization, we are thrilled to be able to continue to volunteer at events and help with the back-end work that never ends. We have encouraged many others to adopt and understand the importance of neutering and spaying your animals. Spreading awareness is critical and because of Lovebugs, we’ve learned a lot about that. We are also proud parents to Vixen who was our second foster dog in December 2014. She’s been a great fit for our family in the last four years. Our hearts are full with her presence.

Each day I try to look for ways to use my marketing talents to spread the word about Lovebugs Rescue, and hopefully help more dogs find their forever homes. Every life deserves to be a happy one, and I am so grateful that Lovebugs Rescue can continue to be a success.

I began following the rescue on social media and always admired the cases they took on; PARVO, heart issues, orphaned puppies – the list goes on. Little did I know that one day I’d be lucky enough to foster with the organization. I have loved animals since I can remember and have always taken in strays, rehabilitated and found homes for them. My charitable heart isn’t limited to just dogs and cats. I’ve rescued squirrels, hummingbirds, a crow, an owl fledgling, a ferret and many more! Once my work schedule allowed for more free time, I jumped at the chance to do my part in helping animals that have no voice. Having three dogs and three cats of my own limits me to the type of animals I can foster, but it doesn’t stop me (or my very patient husband). So far the “sweet spot” seems to be orphaned puppies looking for their forever homes. My cats could care less about the rescued pups and my dogs are very tolerable in showing them the ropes so that they can be social in the future. It gives me such pleasure to place a puppy in a home that I believe they will thrive in. I truly believe that a person’s heart can be judged by how they treat animals and my goal is to be the person my dogs know I am.

I now have 5 rescue dogs of my own and love to foster with Lovebugs Rescue which is so committed to helping any animal that we can find a foster home for. I volunteer with Lovebugs because I am lucky enough to have known the founder of the group for years and have so much respect for how she runs the rescue! If you would like to foster a bigger dog and want to discuss it with someone who has a lot of experience with that, fill out a FOSTER application and I will contact you!

The calls I get most often are the ones needing help with newborns that need to be bottle fed. These puppies need round the clock care because the first two weeks of life is the most crucial period for survival. I’m up with the puppies through the night, and they come to the office with me during the day, and I love it! It’s so rewarding to give back and who doesn’t love puppy snuggles?

She truly seemed to enjoy fostering the puppies and had a process and routine that made it look easy. I thought “I want to do that.” Five years later, I have learned so much from fostering puppies and it has turned out to be so much more rewarding than I expected. Heather and Stacey, founder and rescue director of Lovebugs respectively, are great mentors. All of my many questions when I have a frightened, shy, probably feral momma dog, sick puppy, your name it are answered immediately. The support I receive from this caring group is the reason I continue to foster. I am so proud to be affiliated with this caring, thoughtful, quality, well run organization.

Kona is my current pup and my third rescue. I got him in 2009 from a Dog Rescue organization in San Diego. Apparently, they pulled him out of a high-kill shelter just in time, as he was on the schedule to be euthanized. I am eternally grateful that he was saved, because I can’t imagine not having this beautiful boy in my life.

I first heard of Lovebugs about six years ago, when my husband found six newborn puppies at his job site. After looking around for the mother, he scooped the pups up and called me to ask if I could come and get them. I brought them home and hurried to Petco, where the employee kindly gave me a quick run down on what I needed to bottle-feed and how to do it. For the next two days I fed them around the clock until a co-worker told my husband about Lovebugs Rescue. Heather was contacted and she and another volunteer spent the day in Santa Ana looking for the mother, finally trapping her and bringing her to Heather’s house. I brought the puppies to her house, where mother and babies were reunited.

I’ve been following Lovebugs on Instagram ever since, and have always been impressed at what a well-run organization it is. I’ve thought about volunteering for a while now, and finally decided to jump in and do it in May, 2019. So far, I have worked at one adoption event and transported two litters of puppies to their foster homes, as well as an older pup. I’ve loved every minute of it, and look forward to doing more to help out.

Everyone on the Lovebugs Rescue team have hearts of gold, and it shows in their care, kindness, and commitment to making a difference in these dogs’ lives. I’m so happy to be involved with this amazing organization.

For inspiration, I also look to my two rescues, Dexter and Enzo. Dexter was found on a freeway off-ramp when he was just a few weeks old, showing me the power of his resilient spirit. He may be a little weirdo… but he’s our weirdo. <3 Enzo was rescued from a ditch before we adopted him. He shows me what compassion is all about, as he will baby everything from chickens to chinchillas. You can find them on Instagram at @enzo_and_the_alien.

We were at first so inspired by our adoption experience from one of the other LoveBugs fosters Kelly. We adopted Conda from Kelly and were so moved by the care and love Conda had received from Kelly and her family. We had our inner fire to volunteer ignited by seeing all of the beautiful dogs in our community needing help, being left to overcrowded shelters! We figured we had to pay it forward and do the same for others that Kelly had done for us and for Conda. We thank Heather and Lovebugs Rescue so much for giving us the opportunity to do so!

I am very fortunate to have a supportive husband, Rob, that helps me a lot and also continues to work so he can help support me in this endeavor financially.

I became very involved after watching a plea go out for foster help with a mom and her litter of puppies, and I wanted to do it, but became nervous because the rescue was in San Diego, and I just didn’t know if I could do it. Two days later I saw that no one had stepped up to help, and they were all euthanized in the shelter. That was the turning point for me because I knew I could have saved their lives. I vowed to myself to find the next litter of puppies and mom that I saw needing help in Orange County. One week later I had my first mom and 8 puppies in our home, and I have never looked back. To this day we have personally fostered over 540 fosters and counting.

I also spent the first 5 years in rescue being the vet coordinator, foster coordinator, events coordinator, lead foster, and so much more. After that I moved on to co-run a different rescue for the next 2 years doing all of those same things and so much more. I was volunteering often 10 hours plus a day 7 days a week. From there I moved on to help Lovebugs Rescue and am enjoying my time primarily fostering. I am, however, currently working on scheduling a fundraiser and will probably continue to become even more involved, but time will tell. My love has always been hands on working with the dogs and I plan to continue with that. The truth is that we cannot save them all, but wow is it wonderful to be able to help save those that we can. It truly takes a village to do this and I am happy to be part of the Lovebugs Village. Fostering and helping is very rewarding to me and actually quite addictive lol. I encourage everyone to give it a try!

Also, I am truly honored to be able to educate people in the importance of spay/neuter, training, rescuing over buying from a breeder, and rescue in general. I am honored to have many friends that have joined in on being part of this village of adopting, volunteering, donating, and educating. My biggest passion is helping pitties and other bully breeds that have gotten a really bad rap from the media that is so very untrue. These bully breeds are my absolute favorite, although I love them all, so you will often see me fostering bully breeds. I will foster anyone in dire need and tend to take on litters of puppies with moms, medical need dogs and puppies (which I enjoy probably because of my career as a PT), and bully breed adult dogs. I am happy to help with anything the rescue needs help with!
