When no other rescue including boxer rescues of north Texas would step up to save a 6 year old boxer stuck in the shelter with several lacerations and a broken hip this rescue stepped up and tagged him and said we will find the money somewhere to save him . They are the best and provided food and dishes for him. Is he not the sweetest beast? Proud foster mom.

Today, October 5, 2019 I became an OFFICIAL foster parent to Eddie! Never have I ever done anything like this, I know heart strings are already engaged. Working with Sandy Bentz, and Jennifer Maniac McGee are a JOY to work with. Their hearts are given selflessly to these dogs that people just simply “discard”. So, anyway .... got home last night from eating out and a HUGE box was STUFFED full of and BRAND NEW ITEMS: a very nice kennel, A NEW kennel, NEW kennel pad, a NEW red “blankie “, toys, treats, food, everything a dog could want. Just needed the dog!! Well “the dog” got here to my home TODAY!!! I AM IN LOVE!! I can’t understand people jUSF simply abandoning these babies! And they’re not babies, you know what I mean. I hate it for their kids! Wonder how wanted they must feel? Enough about them tho.... these dogs are sooooooo happy with just the tiniest bit of attention. Eddie and me, it was “love at first sight”... NO joke.

Y’all search your hearts, is there room for a dog that someone was once loved, now has some medical issues and NOTHING, and I mean NOTHING out of your pocket!! A home visit is REQUIRED. A secure, loving, clean home, with room for a furrever baby?? I’m disappointed in me for my 2 week hesitation. I love this dog!!!

I have fostered for the first time with them. Beyond grateful I did. They were so supportive and provided every need that came to mind. If I needed food, I got some, if I needed toys bam there! Ever essential item was brought if needed. I felt like family most of all. I was able to give someone else a wonderfully rehabilitated baby that was restored not only physically but mentally and emotionally as well.

This awesome group pulls at risk animals and finds fosters for them. I am lucky enough to be the foster for the most loving dog I have ever met! To think this guy wouldn't have a chance without them is just unthinkable! This guy is going to make someone so happy!!

So dedicated to helping animals most urgently in need...I can’t wait to experience more with this organization!! They are very open to new volunteers (very helpful and quick to respond to questions). Thank you for all that you do for the animals of the DFW area!

I foster for Urgent Animals of Fort Worth and they have been the BEST non-profit to volunteer with in my experience. They work tirelessly to pull animals from the Fort Worth shelter that have medical problems and treat them immediately. Some dogs that they pull sit suffering in the shelter for days to weeks without the proper medical care because of cost. UAFW raises the money to help these animals that might have been put down otherwise. When placing a dog in a foster home, they ensure it is a good match for both the dog and the foster parent and provide all needed expenses from food, medical, crate, bed etc. I cannot say enough good things about UAFW!

They were wonderful! They had taken very good care of my baby before I adopted him and made the whole process very easy. They really care about the animals and finding them their perfect home.
