> Here's Molly's story on being a foster "sister":
"My mom and I take care of animals that need a home to stay until they can find their forever home. This fostering thing isn't all that odd to me as I was once a foster animal myself until my mom came along and took me home and showered me with lots of love, hugs, kisses, toys and all the treats a dog could every want! I know the feeling of what it is like to not know where you are or where you are going so my job is to make my new foster "sibling" as comfortable as possible and lead the way showing him or her the "rules" of the house. Of course, I also show them the "things you can get away with" stuff so we form a team pretty quickly! It's fun to have a playmate also because all I had before were 4 cats that I lived with and they weren't up for doing all the "dog" activities! When my foster sibling finds his or her forever home, I'm a little sad as my playmate will be leaving, but I know that they deserve a home and family that they can call their own and I look forward to the next foster sibling that my mom will be bringing home so I can teach them all the cool things that dogs can do when they are in a family that really loves them."
"Sunny has found his forever family!!!
I've had him since the beginning of February with no calls on him and last week, within 24 hours, two families called on him.
It is very interesting the way Sunny acted that morning with the first family. We met at a dog park that had two other men there and Sunny was all over them, but he wanted absolutely nothing to do with the guy of the family that wanted to adopt him. He played with their dog and chased it all around, but as soon as he would get near to the guy and the guy would reach out to pet him, Sunny ducked and was gone. I actually had to grab his collar and bring him over, but he just didn't want to be there. The family said they would think about. The guy was the one that wanted Sunny. When I saw the initial meeting with Sunny and the next family, he was the Sunny I knew and was all over the guy and I knew that it was a perfect match! Ironcally, the first family called me back later that afternoon and wanted Sunny!"
People often ask me about fostering and how I can give up the dogs but I reply to them that when the foster dog finally finds the perfect family for his forever home, it is all worth it.
This family emailed to say:
"We are going to keep his name Sunny we like it, it seems to fit him. He is doing pretty well. He really seems to like his new house and yard. He has a little anxiety. If you get up and leave the room he is on you and follows you every where. My kids love him and he seems to love them. We have an appointment for him at the vet on Wednesday. They said they would give him a free exam even though they were not on the list. We think we were meant to find each other.
