Please consider fostering.  Fostering saves lives. When you foster, medical expenses are covered by us for the foster dog.  Food, crates, etc. can be provided.  By fostering you can give a dog a valuable life experience needed prior to them going into their forever home. The poem below describes what it is like to be a foster parent, how hard it is, but also how rewarding it is to watch a dog flourish.  Our foster application can be filled out here.

A POEM TO MY FOSTER DOG
by Diane Morgan

I am the bridge,
Between what was and what can be.
I am the pathway to a new life.

I am made of mush,
Because my heart melted when I saw you,
Matted and sore, limping, depressed
Lonely, unwanted, afraid to love.

For one little time you are mine.
I will feed you with my own hand.
I will love you with my whole heart.
I will make you whole.

I am made of steel.
Because when the time comes,
When you are well, and sleek,
when your eyes shine,
And your tail wags with joy
Then comes the hard part.

I will let you go-not without a tear,
But without a regret.
For you are safe forever–
A new dog needs me now.
