When Pat moved to North Carolina, she knew that she needed to help where she could. Working with several rescue organizations, she started volunteering at adoption events and providing transport for dogs that were being pulled from high-kill shelters into foster care as they waited for their forever homes.
That led to providing foster care to dogs who needed some loving care while the rescue organization found them a new life through adoption.
“People ask me how do I not get attached to the dogs”, says Pat. “I get attached to each and every one of them. They burrow their way into my heart and they become mine. But I know that I can help more dogs if I am a step in their journey instead of their destination.”
Determined not to be a "foster failure", Pat has provided shelter, food, love and a solid foundation to these souls and all have moved on to new families and the good life. On this page are a few photos of some of the foster dogs that were pulled from high-kill shelters and are now living the good life with their new families.
Please spay or neuter your pets.
