Key Team Members
Working with the foster dog program for the last 5 years has been a very fulfilling experience as we have been able to save so many that may not have had a chance otherwise. It is amazing to see the dogs transform and flourish once they have been placed in a loving, foster home. But we don't stop there. Finding a wonderful and caring forever home for these deserving dogs is incredibly rewarding. And watching people experience the joy of adopting and saving a rescue/shelter dog is priceless.
