STROF really values its volunteers. For this reason, we will be highlighting one of our
volunteers periodically so that our Facebook friends can see what wonderful things
these terrific Scottie lovers are doing for our rescue.
Our first featured volunteer is Brenda Thomas, who is one of STROF's most dedicated
foster moms. She most recently fostered Bonnie, who was adopted by Pat Capen
earlier this month. Listen to what Brenda has to say about her experience
fostering Bonnie and other STROF rescues:
"Bonnie came to me soon after being brought into our rescue from
Pasco County Animal Services. She had been spayed and had several
large stones removed from her bladder. I took Bonnie, just like I have
taken other fosters, to help save a life. Being a foster mom allowed
me to give Bonnie the extra care that she needed that the shelter was
unable to provide while she was recovering. Providing foster care for
a few days or weeks can be a lifesaving gift
for our beloved rescue Scotties.
Having Bonnie with my family was a great way to enjoy a pet
since we are not in the position to make a lifetime commitment
to another dog at this time. As an STROF foster mom, it was my
job to prepare Bonnie for a loving furever home. While she
was with us, we got to know Bonnie's personality so that we could
best place her in a home to match her personality.
As a foster dog, Bonnie had the chance to get used to life in a
house with other pets, healthy food, and a warm, loving environment.
She also learned that people can be kind and loving.
I always get a little teary-eyed when a foster Scottie leaves me to go to a new permanent
home. All of my fosters have been placed with wonderful, loving people who will forever
spoil their newly adopted Scottie. Through the internet and Facebook, I have
been able to follow their progress and see photos of my fosters
as they enjoy their lives with their new owners.
Knowing that I have been an important part in saving a life and helping a homeless
Scottie find a loving home has been tremendously rewarding. If you have not yet
volunteered to foster,I highly recommend that you try it.You won’t be sorry!"
