Four Legged Friends


If you are able and willing to make room in your heart and home while you're socially distancing yourself from others, you should consider fostering a pup that could ultimately keep you sane, entertained, and healthy. Dogs are incredibly intuitive and full of unconditional love. They do not carry the virus and cannot get ill from it. So why not share your loving arms with a ridiculously cute fur babe who won't judge you for being in your pajamas all day and eating Oreos for breakfast. Contact your local rescue or shelter and ask how you can foster your next best friend. And lest we forget, not all cats are jerks, and they're often not thought of when it comes to rescuing a new family member. Consider a feline if you're looking for a more apathetic furry friend.
Here are a handful of organizations you ought to get to know: •@bff_pet_rescue •@lwhpitbullrescue •@mbrohio
•@bestfriendsanimalsociety
•@marleysmutts
@voicelessdogsofnassaubahamas
@thedogcafe_la @LoveAStrayCat
