Excuse me - you there...
|Hello. Ummm...hi. Over here please.|
Hey there, may we have a word? Yes, you. I'm pointing at you. The one reading this.
|You don't notice us looking at you?|
We could use a hand. Not a paw - we have sixteen of those...
Oop. Sorry Murph.
Anyhoo, we meant we need a human hand.
|Just like this one. Thanks hooman.|
See, we're a little short on dog and puppy foster homes right now. These are folks who take animals in their home temporarily to help them get new homes. These homes are super crucial to saving us. So we're looking for more.
Because some of us come in too little to be adopted..
|Who ordered the teaspoon of puppy?|
And need a place to grow up for a few weeks before they can be adopted out.
Some of us have had a woopsy...
Or needed some extra medical help..
|I needed a little work done.|
And need a place to recuperate for a while.
Some us just can't deal with being at the shelter..
|I am a chihuahua of the wind. You cannot contain me in your paltry shelter.|
Or are a little spooked by the whole experience
|It's a great place. It's just not for me.|
And need to hang out in a home until we get adopted.
Some of us just plain need a little more space and less fuss...
|I'm a double-order-of-belly-rub kinda guy.|
to get through this whole homeless phase.
If you have other pets..
|What do you mean we're not related?|
that's cool. It's good for us to be around our own kind. And little ones...
|So if I look at this lady I might get a cookie? Good to know.|
can always use a role model.
If you want a dog but can't commit to a lifetime yet..
|Look! I rented a hooman until my forever home found me!|
Then you can be a temporary life-saver. Which is pretty absurdly awesome.
If you have kids...
If you have kids...
|It's okay she snores, Mom. She's a good cuddler.|
That's cool because it seems everyone benefits from it.
|So tell me honestly - how do people get signed up for this gig?|
All you have to do is attend a foster dog orientation..
We provide the food, the toys, the beds, everything...
|I've got my enormous caterpillar packed already! I'm good to go!|
You just bring the love. We'll see you there.
With a big old smile on our faces.
