My husband was getting his PhD from KU and I was working full time while we fostered. I think a lot of people think they can’t foster because they aren’t home full time, but that’s silly! All of our fosters, kittens and dogs alike, have thrived being out of the shelter and getting a break, even while we were at work. It is so rewarding to watch a dog decompress in their time away from the shelter. One pup in particularly, Mikey (now Felix!), was struggling in the shelter. He stayed with us for about a month, and turned into a snuggle bug who loved to go for runs, play with other dogs, and love on his people. He was adopted and has an awesome life, and I feel so lucky to have helped him be the best pup to find his best home. Kittens are hilarious to foster, they’re maniacs, and they’re just ridiculous to have around!
