Meet My New Foster Dog!
In Korea, most shelters are what are called "kill shelters" meaning the dogs only have 10 days to get adopted or the shelter puts them to sleep (kills them) and in Korea, most people only get dogs from puppy stores or breeders.

Basically, these dogs don't stand a chance.

But that's where foster homes come in!


I don't have the time or money to adopt a dog and have it be my fur baby for 10+ years, but I do have the time to help out a dog in need for a month or two!

Meet Sprocket:

She is a cutie patootie who will be making her way to Los Angeles to be adopted and start her life as a California girl~

She is waiting for a flight to Los Angeles and before that, to make her more likely to get adopted, she's going to stay with me and experience life outside of the shelter (she arrived there when she was about 2 months old and has been there ever since)

I'm going to teach her English commands (sit, stay, etc) and try to take a lot of photos and videos so the shelter in Los Angeles can promote her and find her a home faster! So far she's had to learn how to walk up and down stairs, and we're working on potty training ;)

Have any of you fostered, adopted, or volunteered with shelter animals!?

aww cutie πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„ I've owned 2 Saint Bernards and fostered them too. Now I have a girl Mastiff name Misty. She's got a big bark but she's a total scaredy dog/sweetheart. Had a male Mastiff but we had to put him down when he passed the electrical fence and attack a husky. Then a few weeks ago, my parents found a 5 week kitten that I took care of for the weekend. It went to a non kill shelter. I wish we could have kept it but seeing two family members are allergic to cats it was a no. 😟😟😟

what a cutie! When I lived in Okinawa I helped out with an animal rescue group where I would go and help fix up animal shelters and help take care of the pets. I also got to name all of them ! I fostered kittens while I was there and not to long ago I fostered a hound mix that was going to be dumped on the street if she didn't find a place to go. As of right now I just have Chewy a 7 year old shih-tzu​ who is completely blind (has one eye), while at the dog rescue a larger dog bit his head and from the pressure build up caused his eye to pop out. I just had to get him when I saw him. Every pet I have owned has been a rescue!
