Foster A Pet — Make a Family Happy!
In October, we found the newest member of our family. His name is Kramer. He was adopted after a four week stay with a foster family who was reticent to see him go.
Kramer is our dog and fostering helped save his life. Kramer was at the side of the road when the Humane Society found him. He was severely underweight, but had such a kind disposition.
The Humane Society didn't have room for Kramer -- but they had a foster family who was willing to take him. For the next month, they fed him (with food donated by supporters), got him some vet care and fed him medicine every day.
When we saw Kramer's picture -- we just KNEW he was ours. He is 8 years old, which means he won't be with us for long -- but even old dogs bring new joy to a family who needs it.
The Lawton-Comanche County Humane Society deals with up to 100 animals at a time. They need foster families to help care for animals until they are adopted. Is that something your family could do? If you can, or if you want to make a donation to the excellent work they do, give them a call 580-355-SPAY. The very worst that could happen is you will fall in love with your foster pet . . . and have to adopt him yourself!
