I love this pack of dogs. Over the past several months they have gone from super scared, never coming near us, to playing and almost taking the treats right out of my hand. Nigel, the front man there wants so badly to come home with us. He is not completely sure yet, but you can just tell that he knows there is something more out there for him than that dead end street in East St. Louis. We still have one of his offspring up for adoption too. Wouldn't it be so nice if we could keep this pack from reproducing ever again. We are beginning to get caught up on our bills, thanks to several fundraisers and some very generous donations from some animal loving supporters. Unfortunately, we are still low on foster homes. We have no where to take these dogs. Puppies are a little easier to place in foster homes, but most people are not interested in fostering adult dogs. Myself, and a few other people have been willing over the past few years to take in an adult dog. I have to say that I have fostered both adults and puppies alike. I enjoy the adult dogs much more. The good thing about our organization is that PJ gets to be so close to the dogs on a daily basis that she knows which dogs will do well in homes. They usually end up potty trained much quicker than puppies and they adjust very nicely to the home life. Typically, an adult foster dog is more well behaved than my own dogs. They are just so much more appreciative of being rescued.
That being said, we always need fosters for puppies too. Eartha's pups are almost ready to go into their foster homes. Jamie and Shaun will be ready for their much deserved break from having Eartha and her 9 puppies in their house. Please let us know if you are willing and able to foster a puppy or two, or if you are interested in saving an adult dog from the harsh streets.
