Story from Janet Smith - NAYBR Fosterer
Hi, My name is Jo and i am a NAYBR Foster Mum. My job is to take a rescued Boxer (sometimes at the very last minute), and give it a temporary home.
I know what you are thinking.....“oh I wouldn’t be able to give them up”, and yes, when my very first foster boy went to his forever home I certainly did cry. But within a week I had my next Foster boy to focus on. I have since had five foster babies, and every one of them different.
But I feel a fosterer's job is extremely rewarding, as the dog comes to me (instead of going into kennels), I get to give them a loving, happy, calm (well sort of calm with a Boxer) environment.
When they are ready, they will go off to their own (carefully selected by NAYBR) Fur-Ever home.
I usually receive updates, and even pictures of my foster babies in their new homes, and when I do, I have a big smile, and know I did my small part in helping them.
In my circumstances, I can’t offer a Boxer a permanent home but I get great enjoyment and satisfaction out of short term fostering, getting my Boxer fix, and knowing they won't have to wait in a kennel until their perfect Fur-Ever home comes along.
Just wanted to say how impressed we are with your professionalism, commitment to the dogs and brilliant organisational skills - take a bow!!
