I started this blog after being introduced to the online community of adoption/shelter/rescue/”pit bull” dog advocates, and seeing the amazing things they do. I was inspired by their words and photographs, and set out to follow in their footsteps.
After graduating from college in May 2011 with an Animal Sciences degree, I began working events and marketing at my local humane society. The job has proven to be one of the most influential experiences of my life. It is opening doors to so many great opportunities, one of which is saving lives through fostering.
It became clear pretty quickly when I began working at a shelter that it would be nearly impossible to not start fostering. Being involved with animal sheltering shows you how important foster homes are because you can actually see the impact with your own eyes – the one you take home opens space for another one to come in. People always ask, “How can you give them up?” and my response is simply that there will always be another one who needs my help. If you look at it that way, it’s a no-brainer.
The journey began with a little grey elderbull named Zabora (seen in the first photo below), and since then my home has been a revolving door for many “pit bull” dogs needing a temporary place to crash.
My blog is mostly to highlight my amazing foster pups in need of forever homes, but I sometimes add bits about other dog related subjects from my own experiences (especially during my breaks from fostering). I’m also slowly but surely trying to improve my photography, but that’s a serious work in progress.
Thank you for visiting!
