We recently spoke with one of our fosters, Trish Clark, about her experience with fostering. Here’s what she had to say… Why I foster? I am often asked how I…
In January 2018, I adopted “Maya” (called Missy by her foster mom and renamed Lucinda by me), as a companion for my beloved yellow lab, Charlie. What a wonderful girl, and what fun they had. She and Charlie slept close together, and had many great walks side-by-side outside. Little did we know that we would lose Charlie to cancer three months later. I was heart-broken. My beloved Lucinda has never left my side since. We take a walk every morning before breakfast and then visit the back yard, a couple of acres with a garden and a pond….frogs but no fish. Lucinda loves to explore, be she’s not a swimmer. Sometimes she finds a rabbit to chase, but she’s never caught on. She’s earnest, but I’m not sure she really wants to catch one. Lucinda is a lover. She carries a stuffed animal with her everywhere, and sleeps with one every night. She’s also very smart, and can roll over, sit, stay, etc. But most of all, she has been a constant companion during my months at home, and she is the joy of my life. I can’t thank you enough for rescuing her. Your work is invaluable both to the pets you rescue and to their grateful adopters.
After the sudden death of one of our pups after 13 years, we decided to adopt. After several attempts to connect with different dogs at other rescues, we finally found Take Me Home Pet Rescue. Their team was responsive immediately and we were able to do an at-home visit to meet a new litter of dogs within days. We were able to bring our children and let them choose their new pups from the batch. The TMHPR team have been side-by-side with our family through the entire foster period, making sure all questions were answered and all services were received through vet visits at AMCR. Our puppies are healthy and happy, our three children are over the moon, and we are excited for the future of our new fur-babies. Thank you Take Me Home Pet Rescue for this precious gift.
I joke about the fact that our puppy from Take Me Home Pet Rescue really rescued me, but Harper actually chose me at their Saturday Meet and Greet. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and careful in making us her forever family. They did a thorough background check and even brought Harper to our house the next day for a home inspection. Happy to say, Harper stayed. She was born in foster care and is healthy, smart, and the perfect dog who found us at TMHPR. We always recommend Take Me Home to friends looking for that perfect pet.
I really appreciate the efforts of this organization! The volunteers are amazing! We recently adopted a puppy from them. This was our third attempt. The first attempt they had an overwhelming amount of applications and I know they found the right fit for him. The second attempt we had a meet & greet with the foster and dog, unfortunately he just was not a good fit with our family. So I guess the third time was a charm! I respect that this organization takes time to match their dogs and cats to the right family. I'm glad these people are looking out for the innocents that can't help themselves, which most have already had a hard life. Thank you so much for our Wrigley we love him!
We just recently adopted our 7 month old rescue pup named Lincoln from Take Me Home Pet Rescue. Prior to adopting I researched most pet adoption agencies. TMHPR went to great lengths and distance in rescuing unwanted animals. Their foster staff is unbelievable when it comes to their commitment in caring and "rehabbing" these rescue animals. I went to one of their meet and greet after we lost our dog of 13 years and the staff was extremely supportive and understanding about our loss. They were able to make suggestions as to what dog might best fit into our household given our existing dog's challenges and our cat who was an avid dog lover. They matched us up quickly with Lincoln and went above and beyond in helping us and him with the transition to our home.
Adopting Hope has been a blessing for our entire family. She is as smart and sweet as she is beautiful and obedient. We think she has taught us all to live life to the fullest, not sweating the small stuff like missing a back leg. In fact, she has been such a positive force in our home, within a year we decided we wanted to give another rescue pup a home after all, Hope needed a playmate! After a quick play date between Hope and our soon to be Scout, we quickly knew this was what we were meant to do. Hope and Scout spend their days playing with toys, chasing squirrels, and swimming in the pool; Scout swims while Hope watches. We feel blessed to have adopted two dogs with very different personalities, both rounding out our family so well.
My husband and I adopted our dog, Gigi, almost 2 years ago from this organization. She was found roaming the streets in pretty bad shape when this rescue took her into their program. They took care of her medical needs and their volunteers worked with her at their center for 3 weeks allowing her to decompress and feel safe. We took it from there but we had a wonderful experience and have since referred neighbors and friends their way. We love our sweet girl!
