I want to take a moment to tell you about what the rescue community calls "Foster Failures."
It's meant as a humorous term! A Foster Failure is someone who was fostering an adoptable dog for a rescue, but they fell madly in love (head over heels!) for their foster dog and, well, decided they just couldn't let them go so they decided to adopt the dog themselves!
We had 3 foster failures in this month alone! Our foster adoptions take priority over outside adoptions since a foster has already opened their home to a homeless pup and gave them so much love when they needed it the most. Fostering is one of the hardest things I've ever had to do, because it hurts so much to let them go. I hope our adoption applicants understand.
We have so much love and respect for our fosters. They selflessly open their homes to dogs who may be sick, or not housebroken, or injured; and they do it without hesitation. We couldn't do any of this without them.
On that note, we'd like to congratulate Milton, Daphne and Sora for finding their forever homes (even if they found it months ago!). We love these pups and their amazing fosters (I mean owners!), and we will them all the happiness in the world!
