Review for Multiple Breed Rescue , Grafton, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I had fostered for MBR in 2008. I wasn’t looking for another dog at the time, but soon had my first “foster fail”. I still have Maggie today and I couldn’t love her any more.
Every one at MBR is 100% dedicated to the welfare of all the animals they take in. I wished every one I met had the empathy and compassion for animals that they do.

Review for Multiple Breed Rescue , Grafton, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

About 11 years ago I realised I needed a little something extra in my life and decided that fostering a dog was helping and doing something good for a dog in need. I had fostered for another rescue before finding MBR. I reached out to MBR because I already had two dogs and lived in a small house so I was looking for a small breed dog to foster. My first foster with MBR was a pure bred JRT male. He was beautiful. He loved to play with balls. I decided to call him Eddie while he was staying with me. I had grown very fond of Eddie and was considering adopting him myself when I got the call that he had been adopted by a young woman with other JRT’s. Eddie instantly fell in love with her and I knew I was doing the right thing for him by giving him to a good home.
Then it was time for another foster. She was also a JRT. She was not potty trained, very shy, had many many fears, and just seemed very withdrawn. I spent many hours, days and weeks working with her trying to build up confidence. Teaching her to go potty outside. And not fear absolutely everything. Slowly, I was growing attached to her as it had been nearly a month that I had been caring for her. I was told that she had someone interested in her, but then they changed their mind. I knew I could never let her go, and right then decided to add her to my now growing dog family of three. I’ve never regretted my decision, in fact I couldn’t be happier. Maggie is still a part of our family. She is a very happy 12 yr. old little girl with more spunk and spitfire than ever. And today, I don’t think there is anything she fears, except maybe a bad thunderstorm.
Fostering for me was very rewarding. I enjoyed every minute of it. I enjoyed all the dogs I got to meet and care for. And I especially enjoyed the one I got to keep.
