In 2009 we had to put our 11 year old baby Missy to sleep. She was a Rottie/pit mix. Like anyone who loses a pet, our hearts were broken. We lasted about 3 months without a dog. The president of our group, Tina, asked me if I wanted to foster a dog. In May 2009, we fostered and adopted Emily. I’ve been involved with rescue ever since. Then in 2010 we fostered and adopted Boomer.
I got involved with rescue because I wanted to make a difference. It’s such a great feeling when you find a dog her forever home. It amazes me what these dogs can go through and still trust and love again.
