We stood on the grass as the van made its way over the
gravel driveway. As it came to a stop,
E. emerged with a brown cocker spaniel in her arms.
“This one’s yours!” she said as she handed the dog to me.
“Isn’t he a beauty?”
The kids gathered around me as we said hello to our first
foster dog Brock.
That was a year ago.
We’ve fostered fourteen dogs since.
Many people don’t understand why we have chosen to take in
dogs on a temporary basis as fosters versus adopt.
Today, I’m explaining my famliy's decision to foster versus adopt over at Another
Jennifer, the blog created by my dear friend Jennifer Barbour. I am a
huge fan of Jennifer’s blog and in particular, her Philanthropy Friday series, which she uses to bring
awareness to various non-profit organizations and social causes. Jennifer’s
dedication to using her blog for social good is one of the many things that
turned me into a faithful follower. I am honored be featured today on Jennifer’s
Philanthropy Friday series to talk about fostering shelter
dogs. Won’t you
please join me there for my dog story?
