We're Canine Foster Parents!

It's official. We've been accepted as a foster family for the Humane Society of Jackson County.

We had always planned to be involved in Pug and Schnauzer rescue, and fostering, but the recent case of the Nicholson L&D Puppy Mill indictments have pushed us to starting early.

Our first foster was Belle, a chocolate German Shorthair Pointer. She is a beautiful dog. I picked her up at the Jefferson Animal Hospital Friday, April 18th after work.

The next day, I brought Belle to an adoption day at Traditions Animal Hospital in Houchton, and she was a big hit.

The next week, we received a call from a woman named Melinda from Alabama, who, seeing Belle on Petfinders, was sure that Belle was the dog for her. She had an older Lab and thought Belle would be a great companion dog. She drove from Alabama on Friday, April 25th, to pick up Belle and take her home.
