I Am An Animal Rescuer. I have patted a mangy head with a bare hand. I have hugged the vicious and afraid. I have fallen in love a thousand times. My work is never done, my home is never quiet, my wallet is always empty, but my heart is always full.
Rescuing one animal may not change the world,but for that one animal, the world will be changed forever.Doing what you love is freedom. Loving what you do is happiness!
We are in great need of foster homes! If you ever thought about fostering, please email (email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org) or call us!!! One more foster home can save one more life!!
One area we really need help is foster homes for puppy mill survivors!
Fostering a puppy mill dog takes a special kind of dedication. These dogs have been living in cages their entire lives and do not know the touch of the human hand, at least not gently. Most have never been on grass and certainly never had a leash on. They do not understand how to act like a dog.
Caring, patience, no preconceived notions of the perfect dog, or the perfect dog in a week or a month, dealing with the dogs' issues, and being willing to wait till the dog is ready for touch, not you, pooping or peeing on the floor, hoarding toys or food, growling, or barking are all issues you will face while caring for your puppymill dog. However, there is no greater feeling than the first time that dog looks into your face, or the first time they allow you to touch them without running in fear. The first time they roll in the grass or play with a toy, these are the times that make your sacrifice so worthwhile.
It is challenging.....So if you are not up to a challenge, then a puppymill foster dog is not for you.
Please consider fostering....the dogs need you!!
Below are some pictures of the puppy mill dogs we have saved and have since found their forever homes!
