I started fostering for the rescue because I wanted to help with a pit bull rescue. In my research, I found that Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue's needs and requirements fit my lifestyle/schedule the best. I also found that I agreed with and appreciated their adoption process requirements (especially when it comes to the training aspect). I really respected (and still do!) what the rescue stands for.
How long have you been volunteering with our rescue?
I've been with the rescue for a little over six years.
Do you have any pets?
I have two cats (both adopted) and two dogs (both foster fails-one through MPBR)
Where is your favorite dog friendly place to take your pooches?
It's a lame answer but my favorite place to take my dogs would probably have to be places like the pet stores Chuck & Don's, For Pet's Sake, etc. Mostly because I love shopping for them & it's even better when they can help!
When not surrounded by dogs, what can you be found doing?
When I'm not surrounded by dogs (which isn't often) you can find me hanging out with friends/family or watching my niece & nephew's sporting events.
Do you have a favorite memory with one of your fosters?
It's really hard to pick just one... the first time I got Maud to lay down in my many attempts to train the command, Eve's adoption, seeing the skin of fosters that have mange get better, Cogburn pulling through his pneumonia, finally seeing Simon find his forever... really the adoption of every foster that I have had or gotten the pleasure to know through rescue! Oh, and there's always the updates of the adopted dogs, that's pretty great too!
BarkBox is a subscription service that is awesome for you dogs! You get toys & treats delivered right to your door every month!
Each month one of our foster pawrents receives a BarkBoxas a thank you.This is our small way of showing appreciation for the dedication our volunteers have to this rescue. Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue is 100% volunteer based-no shelters here! Each dog we are able to save is because a foster is willing to open their home for us
