An inside look at fostering

Quoted from "Fostering a Rescue Dog" by M. Shirley Chong

"Like any foster parent, you have a special task ahead of you. You have to guide, teach, help and love this refugee, without becoming this dog's one-and-only person.
You have to be ready to spend time and energy and love on this dog, and yet be able to give it up when the right family comes along.

If everything works out right, someday not too far in the future, there'll be a lump in your throat and tears in your eyes as you watch your foster dog eagerly leave your home and loving care for a new life with a new family."

And it is SO worth it.

  1. Cathy, this is an awesome thing you are doing. You have always had a way with dogs. It reminds me of when Babe used to pee on your shoe because she was so happy to see you. Keep up the good work!
