My friend from Hokie's Hounds e-mailed me requesting a foster home for a mother/daughter pair that is currently in a shelter. I'm sleeping on the idea, but will probably do it as a measure of last resort.
I understand how hard fostering would be. I would run the risk of getting too attached. However, fostering for us is out of the question because our yard is unfenced and surrounded by woods. Heck, I wouldn't foster to me!
But if you have a fenced in yard and can afford to feed two more mouths, and these girls need somebody...why not. I would. Especially if you trust Hokie Hounds to screen very, very carefully. In the past when I did foster, I had a big say in who the potential candidates would win.
Good luck on this. I do sympathize/empathize with you.
Well I am on standby as a foster of last resort, meaning that if their euthanization date comes up and they still have no foster, then I would get them. Word has been spread throughout the Baton Rouge and New Orleans area, so these young ladies should have a forever home soon.
Denise, From what I understand, they haven't been at the shelter long. Thankfully, this shelter isn't too quick to PTS, and they are very good at finding foster homes throughout the entire state. I will call the shelter Monday to check up on them.
