Labs & More has a dedicated team of almost 300 volunteers at any given time. This is just one of way too many stories in a given week around here, but its a good reminder as to why we do what we do. Dogs are rescued off the streets every day, from bad situations, nursed back to health from the brink of death and brought to being a normal, well adjusted healthy dog. This simply wouldn’t be possible without the support and constant care provided by our volunteer fosters. Many dogs come in filthy, obviously unloved and in total shock. Our loving, patient fosters provide gentle grooming, a soft bed, a safe home to sleep in, lots of nutrition and most important, comfort. There are many stories of exercising, socializing and patient support given by our fosters that will warm your heart. They then make their debut at the weekly dog adoption events – where you will meet them for the first time.
Many fosters, of course, grow attached to their foster dogs/puppies, and understandably so. They love to see them go to forever homes of their own, but these moments are always bittersweet. Every foster remembers the dogs that they’ve cared for – they’ve in many ways been a part of their family at one point.
This is Rascal’s tale. (enjoy the video at the end *with the volume up please)
