Encourage Dog Lovers to Adopt 💕

Every time Molly tells someone that she fosters dogs, they always have the same initial response: “oh, I could never do that!” Or, “doesn’t that make you so sad?” There seems to be an ongoing stereotype that fostering is sad. And for some foster parents, I’m sure it is at times. But we’ve learned that if you go in with the right mindset, then it’s the opposite of sad. It’s uplifting and fulfilling.

Adding a new family member is never easy. This seems like an obvious statement, but many humans forget. They expect their new dog to magically fit into their family, but that isn’t realistic. Change is hard for everyone, especially dogs, who love routines. I’ll admit, I even had my troublemaking days when Molly first adopted me, but now, we’re the best of friends. So, if you’re planning to adopt a new dog, be patient and keep the following tips in mind. (Click title to read more!)

I know Molly adores Pit Bulls too, but what she doesn’t like is when people breed them. Of course, we don’t like dog breeding in general, but right now, there is no reason for people to breed Pit Bull breeds at all. (Click title to read more!)

Imagine adding an adorable puppy into your family. Even after only a short time together, you quickly bond. But then, imagine finding out that your puppy doesn’t officially belong to you, but instead, you had been tricked into leasing them. This might sound outrageous, but the concept of pet leasing is a real thing, and it’s not okay. (Click title to read more!)

You might notice that a lot of blogs and websites about dogs write lists about specific dog breeds. While these lists are fun to read and write, we don’t have any plans to write them unless they support adoption. It’s not because we don’t like them, but it’s because it’s not really what this blog is all about. (Click title to read more!)
