Peter Groot & Michelle Brandenburg


Why did you get into fostering?  
Because both Michelle and I love dogs and found this to be a way to help dogs that are in need of a temporary home.

Which hart dogs have you fostered? 
Misty, Salsa and Misty for a second time

What has been the most rewarding aspect to fostering? 
It almost seems as though both Misty and Salsa knew that they have been given a second chance at life by being put in a caring home with a warm bed.

When individuals think it will be too much work or too emotionally taxing, what feedback do you have for them? 
I can understand that in our busy lives this is more work, but the effort required can just be providing a caring home, food and warm bed along with love and affection.   And as for the emotional part, just think that you are helping a dog in need of help.  Without your help, where will these dogs be today.

If your foster dog(s) could speak, what do you think they would say to you? 
Please love me, and pet me, and oh yeah, take me for a walk!  I love my walks!
