Fostering Saves Lives
|Julie the day we pulled her from the San Bernardino shelter, part of an abuse/neglect situation|
|Julie about 6 months later. Sandy fostered her while we nursed her back to health and recently adopted her|
'Wow that's it!' I said, I will fill my home with the love animals have to offer.
This is when I saw Nala, a blind, deaf, 17 yr old cocker spaniel.

Nala was delivered to my home by LNPB, I passed the home check and she was welcomed with open arms and open paws by my pack. To me, this is the importance of fostering. Saving a dog from a shelter that still has so much love to give. LNPB supports their fosters and guides them through sometimes difficult times. They cover all medical and do not hesitate to get them to the vet when there is a problem. Yes, fostering saves lives! It fills my void and doesn't allow me to feel sorry for myself.

The rest is history and my quest to help as many as I can continues. My girl Cali loves helping me foster. She has a way of making the fosters feel safe, warm and loved. I guess she gets that from me!"
Since that first experience with Nala, Sandy has fostered many animals for us. Some of those she has fostered for a long time, while others were hospice cases that were with her short term. For the hospice cases (and with all her animals), Sandy makes sure that during their short time with us, they know warmth, kindness, tenderness, and love. She also assists us with transports and photoshoots.
She goes on to say: "Do I have a favorite? No. But Nala was an AH-HAH moment for me. Seniors helping seniors in companionship"
