“At this point one of us is always home and we have a dog walker/sitter.

We are not sure how to fix this situation, but we are willing to exhaust all options.

We are open to getting creative, whatever that means.

We just want Riley to have a good quality of life.

My husband and I are also expecting a baby this week.”

“He felt a connection to Riley.

She was happy and playful.

We adopted her eight months ago.

She has sever separation anxiety.

We have worked with trainers and medications and nothing has helped.

It hasn’t been like anything we have ever experienced before.”

“My husband and I decided to  rescue one of the dogs.

We wanted to sleep on it, but decided to go out to Long Beach, Long Island where the shelter was located, to meet and spend some time with the rescue beagle puppies.

We wanted a dog that was social and playful.

She was the opposite of our last beagle.”

“We had a beagle who was 11 years old and he passed away from cancer, so we adopted Riley from a rescue group called, Posh Pets.

We met her at an adoptapalooza event in Union Square, NYC.

We were looking, just to be around dogs, but not sure we were ready to adopt a dog.

We went into the adoption truck filled with puppies and dogs and got emotional.”

“After hearing her story, we wanted her mom, but I knew that I wasn’t experienced enough to rescue a dog who has been through trauma because I’ve never owned my own dog.

We chose Stella.

It felt right because she’s my first dog and we are her family.

We’ve had her since August of 2017.

Since having her, some of our best times were when we were establishing a bond with Stella by teaching her commands and tricks.”

“They had a photo of a group of dogs and we emailed right away and wrote that we would be available to foster any of them.

We received an email straight back saying, please come in and pick up a dog.

We went to the Social Tees office and they said, hi, here’s Tina and her sister, Tuleh.

We haven’t split them up yet, so would you mind taking them both?”

“Both my wife and I have always had dogs.

W had one each with our families, growing up.

We’ve never had one together as a couple and it’s something we’ve talked about for a few years.

The time seemed right to foster, because my wife can’t work, as we are from England.”

“When they post new dogs, a foster care giver clicks on the link to come down and pick up the dog, if the care giver is available.

That is exactly what we did with Tina.

Six dogs had just arrived from the Dominican Republic that needed fostering.

We were in the first six responders, and went downtown that night to foster Tina.”

“My husband and I wanted a dog for years, but it’s never been the right time.

We originally fostered Tina, for Social Tees.

We thought we’d start off by fostering, before adopting.

I started following Social Tees on Instagram, and then my husband and I applied to be foster care givers.

We were approved straight away.”

Olive, the Basset Hound, Staffordshire Terrier, and unknown mix, Rescue Dog (part 6, she said)

“Olive was a perfect match for energy, activity level and temperament.

Our worst experience was when she ate a dark chocolate bar, which is toxic for dogs.

We rushed Olive to the vet, who said, he would do the best he could, but no guarantees.

We told our son, nine at the time, and he responded with big teardrops rolling down his cheeks, but said, every cloud has a silver lining, but I can’t possibly think of what it could be.

Luckily, Olive survived.

She is a member of our family.

When we go away without her, we feel like one of us is missing and the family is not complete.”
