don't not have a shelter. All animals are housed in temporary
foster homes, until permanent homes are found. Foster homes are
volunteers who generously open their homes to animals in need.
There are too many homeless animals out there. Foster homes play
a critical part in saving an animal's life.. Can you open your
heart and home to an animal that might not be taken in unless
you do it?
a foster animal into your home is often the first and most important
step in giving them a new lease on life. Many of them have suffered
from abuse and neglect and they need to learn that they are now
safe. It is very satisfying to see the animal's personality come
alive when this happens. This is a very rewarding experience that
too many animal lovers miss out on.
I was cold, hungry, scared and in great danger
of being abused, injured or killed. But you took me out of this
great danger, offered me a warm bed, good food, and the safety
of your home. My once dirty, flee bitten sore body is now clean
and brushed. I will never be breed for profit because you have
taken care of my vet needs and have made me healthy and whole.
I will never bring unwanted litters in to this world because you
have made sure I was spayed or neutred. You showed me love. I
would of have bitten out of fear, but your hands showed me compassion
and tender care. I no longer cringed when a hand was raised near
me, because your hands had only kindness and treats to offer me.
I no longer feared the sound of feet approaching, because your
feet had never kicked me, they had only taken me on wonderful
adventures to exciting new places. I learned to trust because
you showed me what love was. I learned so many things with you.
How to behave in the house, walk on a leash, sit, and yes I learned
to be potty trained. This I learned because of your patience and
love. I wanted so to please you, because to me you were my Hero
& my guardian Angel. I would of been dead with out knowing the
love a family can bring. Because of you, I have my very own family
that loves and cares for me the way you showed me it should be.
I know this because it was you that hand pick them for me. Good
byes can be hard, but I know you how much love it takes to let
me go on to this new and exciting life. I know that I will be
remembered in your heart, as you go on to save other lonely lost
lifes. You fight this battle with love. And even though, I know
your heart may be sad at our parting, I know that soon it will
be filled with the needs of another. Your love will touch yet
another's life and and give him the opportunity to become what
all of us should. Thank you for saving me!
