I don’t know how many times I’ve heard people say “I want to make a difference”. Let me offer you the opportunity to do just that. If you can answer the following 4 questions with a yes…then we need to talk about this opportunity!
1 .Do you love the Golden Retriever breed?
2. Do you have a little extra love in your heart and room in your home?
3. That difference that you want to make…are you serious about it?
4. Can you give a dog a pill? (just a little humor)
I could tell you a lot of stories about how rewarding it is to foster, how much YOU are needed and how you can make that difference that you want to make. But, you already know that. I could tell you how hard it is to watch them go to another home. Believe me, I’ve cried tears of sorrow and joy while
standing in my driveway as my foster leaves with his new forever family. But you probably know that too.
What you don’t know is how much of a difference you can make for just ONE dog. Watching a sad and broken dog gain their confidence, loving them while they grow stronger and sometimes loving them so much that they become the dog they were always meant to be…that’s what fostering is all about. LOVING A DOG enough to help them be the best they can be. LOVING A DOG enough to play and cuddle a dog that has never had that experience. And sometimes LOVING A DOG enough to let them go, knowing that YOU finally made that difference that you always talked about.
