Since I follow a lot of animal rescue groups on social media, I see many pleas come across my newsfeed every day of shelter pets needing a foster home. Sometimes it's because the shelter just has no more room to take in any more animals in need, and sometimes its because the animal has special needs and would benefit from living in a home while they recover from medical issues or a traumatic event. It's hard for me to not foster them all!
Two weeks ago my family and I fostered an incredibly cute puppy, and as usual it got a lot of people ooohing and aaahing over the puppy cuteness, and asking how we could NOT keep her. But it also inspired at least one friend to sign up and become a foster herself. And you know what, that made me incredibly happy!
