Why did you get into fostering?
We wanted to make a difference to any animals that needed the help.

Which hart dogs have you fostered?    
Jasmine (later adopted); Henrietta, Lena, Decker, Subway, Whiskey, Commander, Chase, Fran and Yogi were all staycations.
 
What has been the most rewarding aspect to fostering?
Knowing that every dog you have brings a greater understanding of what it means to truly care unconditionally.
 
When individuals think it will be too much work or too emotionally taxing, what feedback do you have for them? 
I remind them that to foster a dog in need can be the most rewarding experience you may ever have, not only making a differencein their life but also yours; you make time for things that matter most, how better to spend it this way? Life is for living and should be full of challenges.
 
If your foster dog(s) could speak, what do you think they would say to you?
I would hope all my dogs would say, Why do you cuddle and kiss me so much, play with me, take me out for long walks with other doggies in the park and take care of me, why are you always cleaning my eyes and kissing my paws, she's weird, but I like her!
