That's amazing!! : o )

I too wish to foster one day. Let us updated at some point about your experience. My main question would probably be: would you feel too attached to the foster cutie and suffer to much when it is time to let him/her go?

Foster Application Sent!!!

It is hard!!! I really needed my husband to step in and say, we are providing a means for the dog, but reasonably, we can't have ten! The first is definitely the hardest! Find outside assistance, kennels, vets, etc to help.we had a vet who gave us discounts on treatments, and a kennel for a couple of dogs that we could not bring into the home, especially once I found out I was pregnant! I had a case of 5 show dogs that were in such terrible condition. The owner had been sent to jail on some non violent charges, but his well to do parents kept the dogs and let them live in filth. They all were covered head to toe in ticks, mange, and 3 of them were HW positive. I couldn't do the bathing medication, so the kennel I worked with helped me out there. 2 of the dogs didn't make it. The oldest and the female in the group, she had been butchered in a spay procedure, poor girl. So many horror stories, I don't know how some people sleep at night, I really don't!

Thanks! You know I had the same concerns. Some great members from the forum explain that you do fall in love with them and it does hurt to let them go but you were a great beginning to a wonderful life. By fostering you get to help so many dogs in need. Im going to have to keep telling myself that everytime I watch a dog find its new home. I will def keep you posted on my foster adventure!!

Thank you for fostering!!
I agree, letting go is going to be the hardest part. I think I would feel better if the new families could keep me posted on the dog progress.

Keep us posted! So exciting to be a part of something sooooo very worthwhile! =)

Yes, I've kept in touch with all the new homes...I was super picky for my pups, but each of them had such special qualities, I wanted only the best! =)
