Re: Foster home for dogs

Update: The dogs were not rescued by Brenda, but by a friend of hers in Barra, who had taken care of them for 6 months and now got kicked out of her house. The woman said in her despair:"I would rather put the dogs to sleep, than see them suffer again!" Brenda immediately offered to help and was so upset that she mentioned what the woman had said and that the vet in Barra had said that he could do it. I talked to Brenda again today, and got yet another confirmation, that she would never put a healthy animal to sleep. I know this to be true, because she always tries to help sick animals, and in one case where somebody else had put a seemingly incurable mangy dog to sleep, she fretted that they hadn't told her, she would have taken the dog. In the present instance, the dogs are big and they are 2, and Brenda's house is overflowing. The dogs are now with a friend, and they are ever so sweet and loving and calm, amazing considering their size.
