“I foster because I believe strongly in the Starfish Theory. Such a small commitment on my end results in years of happiness for each animal who passes through my doors.
I met LGAR when, heartbroken from the passing of my heart dog, I was keeping an eye on the NYCACC euth list postings in case someone there “spoke” to me. After a few months, that “someone” took the form of Spock (quickly renamed Sam!), a young pitbull who passed his temp evals but had landed on the euth list due to an injured leg that needed expensive surgery. With hours to spare, LGAR answered my call as a rescue partner, and worked with me to get Sam’s leg fixed. After healing, he was quickly placed into the absolute perfect home. Since then, in just under a year, I’ve fostered three more dogs for LGAR, with I’m sure many to come.”
