Why did you get into fostering?
I wanted to help anyway i could and this seem to be a very urgent and important need .. Without foster parents we cannot rescue animals .I also have a huge property with acres of fenced land that they can be so free ..It warms my heart to see them running and playing.

Which hart dogs have you fostered?
I have fostered a puppy , Shaggy and also diamond.

What has been the most rewarding aspect to fostering?
Meeting there new families and realizing I had a  hand in them finding peace and a forever home.

When individuals think it will be too much work or too emotionally taxing, what feedback do you have for them?
I would tell them to try it once .. There is no one more likely to get atatched to a dog then me ,,but i gave it a shot and glad i did .. I always tell people that saying goodbye is hard but if you dont you cannot help more rescue dogs and thats what is important to continue to foster so you can continue to help.

If your foster dog(s) could speak, what do you think they would say to you?
I would really hope they would say thank you for teaching me to trust humans again. Thank you for the love and freedom and thank you for putting in really good effort to get me to my forever home .
