more than I give them!”

To see the state these dogs are trying to exist in breaks my heart. If I can save one

compassionate people it humbles me.” – Deb

Melissa – “The dogs my family has been lucky enough to know over the years
have given us so much unconditional love. It feels good to be able to pay that
back, in some small way.”

“We foster because so many dogs need saving, and our passion is to give them a
chance for love and kindness that they may never have known.” – Keith & Carol


Janet – Rescuing dogs and giving them that second chance, when they are out of
chances..is my passion… and I can’t think of any other way that I want to spend
the rest of my life… They so deserve our love and efforts to save them.

When you look into the eyes of an animal that needs you, the heart just takes over
and helping them becomes the only answer.” – Erica

I foster to help undo the bad and replace it with good for the forgotten ones” – April

I am a rescuer because I want to be a safe haven. I want
to
heal the broken, love the unloved and teach both dogs and people that
we can make a difference.” – Colleen

Cynthia – “I foster rescue dogs because someone decided the life of a dog just isn’t that
important 
and I know that these dogs were just dealt a bad hand and I can help change
the game 
for them and put them in the hands of a family who will see and nurture the
truly 
wonderful beings that they are. The love and laughter these dogs give, in the short
time 
they’re with me, is deeply rewarding. Also, the relationships I’ve built through
rescuing are a blessing.”

“When I was a kid my first dog was a stray that lived in the back yard of an abandoned
house a few houses down. She was gentle and sweet and I couldn’t imagine anyone
leaving her. We put up posters and called local animal shelters but no one claimed her.
  Since then all I have wanted to do is help more dogs like her who just want someone to
love them. It truly breaks my heart the kind of experiences dogs have and I just want
to give a little love back.” – Amber

Susan – “I decided to foster once my girls left home-empty nest syndrome and after
42 foster pups and a foster fail our home is always open to a pup in need. There is
nothing more rewarding than knowing our family has helped a dog find a loving
forever home! Ya we lose a little of our hearts every time they leave, but our hearts
are filled every time we know another baby has a new loving life. One dog at a time
our family tries to make a difference.”
