Image -  - NITTY was found staggering on the Northcoast Inland Trail last summer on a hot, humid day. She was completly dehydrated, staggering over to the bicyclists begging for help. She was rushed to Fremont Animal Hospital and responded quickly to Dr. Reineck's care. She was obviously a TNR (Trap Neuter Return) failure apparent from her tipped ear. Nitty belonged in a loving home, not released on a bike trail with fox, coyotes, eagles, and ditch water.  Today, Nitty is a beautiful, long-haired, silver beauty who is in need of a foster home.

1. Companionship without a lifetime commitment.

2. Animals that have endured hardship can benefit greatly from a loving home.

3. Fostering provides a great lesson in compassion to children and it is a wonderful, life-affirming experience.

4. If you have one or more dogs or cats, one more will not make a difference to you, but it sure will make a difference to the foster animal who otherwise might not have a second chance at life.

5. Fostering increases the likelihood of adoption. When the dog/cat you’ve fostered is loved and accepted in its forever home it is because of the love you have given them!

6. Increased "human interaction" greatly helps foster animals who often come from neglectful or abusive situations, and lets not forget what "pet interaction" can do for you by lowering your blood pressure, reducing stress, and giving you a real sense of self-worth.

7. You undoubtedly will get attached but when you meet the new family that's ready to provide a permanent home for the dog/cat you have fostered you will feel more than satisfied to see him/her move on to a new life.

8. Its fun!

9. You sre able to share with your foster animal what a life filled with love should be.

10. More foster homes means more animal's lives will be spared from pounds and kill shelters. Only a small fraction of animals impounded every year are rescued from the terrible fate of euthanasia. FOSTERING IS A REAL WAY TO SAVE A LIFE!

S.P.A. pays for all medical expenses, food and equipment. You simply provide lots of love!
