The Foster Pre-Application

The reason behind the completion of this form is to make sure that a “Good Fit” can be made between you and your foster animal as well as any other family fur members you may have.   Fostering is a gift you give back to an animal who may have had a tough start and just needs a little support moving forward or a senior dog that has lost the only family they knew and a home environment before placement in a new home is essential to their health and well-being.  We are going to be upfront with you in that:    Fostering is not for everyone.  Fostering can be tough on a good day.   Letting go is essential in order to continue assisting animals on their life paths.

PIECES OF MY HEART (ON FOSTERING)

by Jim Willis, Author

Our paths will cross for only a short time, but while you are in my care I will be devoted to you.  If memories of your former life are painful, I will help erase them.  No longer will you hunger and I will help to heal your wounds. If your former life was good, I will promise you an even better future.

One day our time together will come to an end and you will go off to your new home, healthy, happy and healed. As a parting gift, I will give you a piece of my heart to remember me by.  I may shed a tear . . . not for my loss, but for your gain.

Perhaps our paths may cross again for a fleeting instant and I will be comforted by the aura of love that surrounds you.  There will always be a bond between us, though we walk separate paths through this life.

After we reach our heavenly reward our paths may cross again.  You may try to return the piece of my heart with thanks for all that I did for you.  I will tell you to keep it and thank you for showing me that I could be better than I thought I could be, and that I learned in giving came the greatest gifts.

The pieces of our hearts are like grains of sand. They are pulled along a current beyond our control until they come together and form a safe haven.

I, like you, came to understand what it meant to be saved.
