“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.”

“Ike, along with his entire litter of siblings was rescued by a group called Social Tees.

The foster people were attached already, but couldn’t keep him.

They were working 10-12 hours a day.

They watch Ike when we go out of town, sometimes.

Ike has changed my life, as a stay at home mom with a tweenage daughter.

He has given me a new purpose.”

“Our daughter had been asking for a dog for ten years and my husband was adamantly against having a dog in the city.

Then one day he said, yes.

During a frigid winter two years ago, we decided we would wait until May, but two weeks into March we saw this beautiful dog being walking in Tribeca.

We thought, this is the kind of dog we would like someday, only to find out that he was being fostered and available for adoption.

Two days later, Ike was ours.”
