A few weeks ago I shared the story of Jodi, one of my favorite foster dogs.
Jodi’s adoptive mom saw my post and sent me some pictures and this video. I really adore this little girl and am so happy that she is so loved.
People ask pet foster parents all the time how we can give up the dogs. Seeing pictures like this and knowing that I helped this family complete itself makes it a lot easier.
My sincere thanks go out to the police offer who scooped up Jodi out of traffic when she got hit by a car in a busy intersection of the city and drove her immediately to his vet’s office.
Hillside Animal Hospital checked her out and Dr. Ed went in search of her family…driving around the neighborhoods and posting flyers. When her family couldn’t be found, Hillside asked Gateway Pet Guardians if they would take her on even though Gateway normally only rescues dogs from East St. Louis. They called me and said they would take her on if I would foster her…I’m the small dog lady of the group.
Without hesitation, I said yes. And so glad I did.
