“Fostering has taught me that patience, attention to a dog’s body language and love can overcome anything.”
“I’ve only fostered a couple of times but for me it’s witnessing the positive impact that the foster pet has on my pets. I feel like both parties get pushed out of their comfort zones and are better for it, it’s incredibly rewarding. Fostering is an opportunity for growth and for learning, can’t recommend it enough.”
“It’s helped me realize that if everyone does a part, no matter how big or small, we can make a difference.”
“Countless ways! It’s increased the patience and grace I give to all animals AND humans, forcing me to remember that most have a pretty terrible story and are just trying to survive. It’s increased my passion and purpose for advocating for those less fortunate. It’s increased my confidence in addressing animal welfare with friends, coworkers, family, and strangers, being able to share personal accounts of the benefits I’ve seen the SPCA of Texas and other animal shelters/groups provide, despite the negative stereotypes that are often recited. It’s connected me to this larger group of fosters and volunteers that I feel truly bonded with, despite having not met all of you. I could go on… but I should probably get back to work. 🙂 Love the SPCA of Texas, love this group, and love all our animals!”
“To truly live in the moment and to appreciate what you have and not feel sorry about what you don’t have.”
“Fostering has taught me that every animal is different and has different needs and wants, just like humans! Every animal I have fostered has blossomed into the pet they were meant to be once I determined the best way to support them and their growth. It’s truly given me so much admiration for these resilient creatures and it has been such an honor and a privilege to be a part of something bigger than myself.”
