A Foster's Story
Dakota is a 6 year old Labrador mix and whose best friend needed to undergo biweekly chemotherapy treatments to battle the cancer that had returned again. Her dad would not schedule the treatments he needed until he could ensure that somehow he could return home to his beloved dog.
Dakota stayed in foster care on and off with us for six months while her owner underwent treatment. She visited him in the hospital too when permitted.
Unfortunately. her owner did not survive his battle with cancer. As he had requested, Dakota stayed with her foster until such time as we could find her a home who could give her as wonderful a life and all the love she deserved. We were honored to help them both.
