How do I become a foster parent?

foster home to an animal?
This is an essential step in saving a life.
If you choose to foster,
you can take pride in knowing you were a part of
their journey to their forever home.

"To My Foster Dog"
By Diane Morgan

"I am the bridge between what was
and what can be.
I am the pathway to a new life.
I am made of mush, because my heart
melted when I saw you,
matted and sore, limping,
depressed, lonely,
unwanted, afraid to love.
For one little time you are mine.
I will feed you with my own hand.
I will love you with my whole heart.
I will make you whole.
I am made of steel.
Because when the time comes,
when you are well,
and sleek, when your eyes shine,
and your tail wags with joy,
then comes the hard part.
I will let you go - not without a tear,
but without a regret.
For you are safe forever -
a new dog needs me now."
