Once I went to school I volunteered at a neighborhood animal shelter since I couldn’t have a canine of my very own. My mother all the time mentioned I wanted a diploma and a job earlier than I bought a canine however I informed her it sounded approach higher whenever you mentioned diplomas and canines. I graduated and the very first thing I did was undertake my canine Cooper. He’s completely my soul canine.

Cooper had a tricky go at life earlier than I used to be fortunate sufficient to seek out him. He was introduced up from a excessive kill shelter within the south and it was destiny that the day I used to be on the lookout for a canine was his first day obtainable for adoption. He was 9 months previous and frightened of all folks and something that moved or made noise. The shelter employees mentioned it is perhaps tough as a result of he was so nervous and to not anticipate a lot however I sat down and he got here proper to me and the remaining was historical past.

Cooper is what bought me so invested in serving to get canines out of shelters. I felt relieved to have him however so unhappy that there have been so many wonderful animals similar to him that have been dwelling in worry. I had to assist and after I moved to Arlington I assumed what higher approach to assist than foster canines with Fortunate Canine.

I made a decision that I needed to foster puppies and I did not need to begin sluggish so we began fostering 4 10 week-old puppies, Azalea, Aloe, Abby, & Aster. Anybody that is aware of me, knew I wasn’t going to have the ability to resist. We foster failed and gave Cooper his finest buddy Zailey (previously referred to as Azalea). We bought Zailey adjusted from pet life and as quickly as we have been prepared we began fostering once more.

We now have fostered 12 pups within the final 8 months and have been loving each second of it. I like going to the occasions and assembly new folks, making superior pals throughout the Fortunate Canine group and watching wonderful pups come out of their shells and discover their ceaselessly properties. I like it a lot that I’m planning on changing into an Adoption Coordinator quickly to assist much more pups discover their fortunately ever after.

Whereas it’s arduous to see the canines we foster go, it’s so cool to listen to how they’re doing and watch them discover their folks. Working with rescue animals is such a rewarding expertise. I really feel fortunate that I discovered Fortunate Canine and have such an superior group of people that love animals as a lot as I do!
