Review for Foster Army Animal Rescue, Riverside, CA, USA
In the past, we've fostered close to 10 dogs for Foster Army, and each time we were amazed at how these dogs blossomed. These were dogs that came matted, injured, diseased, disfigured, and in all-around pitiable condition. These dogs were all given a second chance at life and love, and being part of and watching each of them heal and find forever homes touched the heart.
The team at FAAR are also dedicated and passionate people. Even with wanting to find a home for each animal, it's about finding the RIGHT home for each animal. I'm impressed with the level of screening and follow up that goes into making sure the pet and the adopting family are right for each other. And, not to mention, none of them are in this line of work to make money. They do this because they have a calling to care for animals who would otherwise be euthanized or left to die. They also help educate on responsible pet ownership.
The thrift store is also quite fun. It's always fun to see what people donate. I've found some very nice items there for reasonable prices. The store is clean and well-organized. Treasure hunters paradise! And they hold fun sales often--my favorite is the poker chip discount sale.
And, of course, we ended up foster failing. Oliver came to us at 8 weeks old--abandoned at the shelter drop box with two broken front legs. We fostered him through Foster Army...and we couldn't let him go. We love him to the moon and back. Every day I look at him and know that if it hadn't been for Foster Army, Oliver would have been euthanized.
We appreciate Foster Army and the work they do to help save more dogs (and other animals!) like Oliver. They are an extraordinary organization.
