Our neighbor, according to one blogger, has the apt name Eva Foster, because she makes it a life mission to foster dogs that would otherwise face euthanasia. Allied with Purple Paws, Ms. Foster has succeeded in fostering more than eighty dogs.
She has two of her own. The second, bought home to give her terrier Tillie a companion became a lifer. Foster had no special pre-Paws pet skills, though cattle raising was part of her youthful years. She does especially gravitate towards terriers and believes most life-fosterers find a breed that specifically speaks to their style of fostering.
- For those with a big heart that may not want a forever pet, fostering a dog that would otherwise face euthanasia is a great option.
- One such Foster Fairy, with 82 saved pets to her credit, took on a second dog unintentionally when she realized her pooch needed a buddy.
- The aptly named Evan Foster had no prior experience raising pets except for dealing with longhorns as a child.
“She had adopted a dog, Tillie, from Purple Paws and realized the dog needed companionship.”
