Meet Loretta
I have been an adoption counselor for over five years with a no-kill shelter for dogs and cats called Friends for Life.
I had two cats who lived to ripe old ages, and currently have three dogs. I've fostered pit mixes, a Chow, a cocker spaniel, a rottweiler, a doberman, a beagle/basset, etc. Nobody thought I could foster and give up the dog, but I was able to do it. As a foster mom, you do the one thing you don't want to do, and that is socialize your dog so that it can leave you to go to a nice family. I'd be lying if I said it isn't hard, but you have to do what is best for the animal. It is up to the foster mom to decide if the people/person interested in the foster dog are a good fit. This is where the counseling comes in. I have been in the sales industry for over 20 years and can read people fairly well. Hence, I would qualify the potential adopters by asking loads of questions, and observing their commitment. I had to say "no" a couple of times, but that goes with the territory. References are available upon request.

Loretta is one of the most kindhearted people I have ever met and my dog thinks he's on vacation too when he goes to her house. She has three other dogs that love to play, they just run around, out to the backyard and have a great time together. I could tell she gave my pup lots of love and treats during his stay. I don't think he missed me at all, I would leave him with her anytime I have to go out of town. Posted Dec 15, 2009
