A Foster Dog Poem
by Diane Morgan
I am the bridge
Between what was and what can be.
I am the pathway to a new life.
I am made of mush,
For one little time you are mine.
Because my heart melted when I saw you,
Matted and sore, limping, depressed,
Lonely, unwanted, afraid to love.
I will feed you with my own hand
I will love you with my whole heart
I will make you whole.
I am made of steel.Because when the time comes,
When you are well, and sleek,
When your eyes shine,
And your tail wags with joy
Then comes the hard part.
I will let you go -- not without a tear,
But without a regret.
For you are safe forever—
A new dog needs me now.
What is foster care?
Foster care is an opportunity to care for an animal in need. It is a selfless act of kindess. If you have a little extra space in your home and heart and a little time to give, then you can drastically change the life of an animal.
As a foster parent, you will serve as a bridge for your foster animal. You are the bridge that will connect them to the place they were always meant to be...the home they were always meant to have...the family they were always meant to be a part of.
To watch your foster animal grow, strengthen, and learn and find their forever family is an experience that is bittersweet. The love you will feel for your foster animal will be great, but the sense of pride and fulfillment you will feel when they find their new home will be greater.
Consider fostering an animal in need today. You will not only be helping your foster animal, but you will make it possible for our rescue to save another animal's life! We can only save as many animals as we have foster homes. You can make a difference!! Foster today!!
