    Default Hats off to rescue/foster homes for dogs

    Did an job at a house today - the woman was part of a dog rescue group. She had 8 dogs at her house. Was taking them for walks 3 at a time, the house was clean and the dogs well loved. She takes care of them until they can be adopted.

    Very cool for someone to be willing to do this - they were all very sweet dogs and are lucky she cared enough to give them a second chance.
    Don't worry about what other people think. They don't do it very often.

    Corsair, I used to house abandoned kitties that were left outside an RSPCA with the help of a locum doctor that lived next door to the shelter. The owner of the place was , for all intents and purposes - a dog person. Any cat that went to her facillity was allowed 1 fucking day until they were euthenized, (the law requires a minimum of 2 weeks housing - I believe). So doc used to drive by at least 5 times a night to see that no kittens were left to die in this concentration camp. If they were He'd look after them and vaccinate/ and nurse back to health any of the unloved cats. He lived an hour outside Sydney, and we met online when I wanted my 2 babies. After he explained his situation and predicament (long suffering allergic wife and no more room)I aggreed to act as a conduit to house any of the strays he found. Once a week, as busy as he was, he would drive in with a new delivery 3-8 kittens (most could fit in your hand as a group) I'd organize people that wished for free vaccinated and healthy cats, have a coffee and see that they bonded, and wernt under illusions that the animal would outlive goldfish and was a serious responsibility. We'd give them a litterbox and 2 weeks food and organize to catch up in a month to see how things were going.

    The most rewarding thing Ive done..... I might give him a call actually and see if he needs a kitty connection in Melbourne now. Thanks for reminding me of that mate

    Some people are so wonderful to animals. They do it and expect nothing in return except knowing said animal will have a happy life.

    Lots of those stupid celebs could learn from people like this.
