I got involved with Thank DOG I Am Out Dog Rescue Society in 2012 when I came across a plea for help for a dog needing a foster home with no cats. I took one look at the picture of Sydney with her soulful, sad eyes and I knew I had to offer to help. One thing led to another and my family and I took her in as a foster with our two other dogs and she’s been a part of our family ever since.  I heard her story and so many others just like hers and I knew in my heart my purpose was to get involved and do whatever I can to help these dogs in need.  I started doing home checks and knew that’s where I wanted to focus my energies.

Connecting potential families with our amazing rescues is what makes all the work worthwhile.  Susan and I connected right away and as I got more involved with the rescue my role has expanded into the Adoptions and Foster Coordinator. It’s a lot of work but I absolutely love it.  The rescue is my second family and I’m honoured to be part of it.
