Why Foster? – A Different Perspective

Post by Dana Huffman, Take Me Home Pet Rescue, Foster & Volunteer

Fostering Saves Lives


…because it is easy?     No

…because I have unlimited free time?     No

…because my resident pets love it?        Not always


Then WHY? These pictures are some of the reasons why….

I foster because these photographs make me feel so many things.

…anger at the people who caused or ignored.

…sadness for all the times I am certain this living creature felt hurt, unsure or scared.

…love when I saw the fear on their face turn to trust.

… amazement when I realize all the people that came together to help in some way.

…happiness when I see post adoption photographs of the pet in their loving, forever home.

Fostering can be hard, no doubt. But nothing is as hard as watching them die with just a number on a black bag. They all deserve a collar, a toy, a bed, a name, a loving home and someone to cry when they are gone….we ALL do.
