Nick and I adopted our own pup, Benny, from MPBR in May of 2015. We really appreciated the time and care they spent in finding the right home for the right dog. They sent out the call that they were looking for people to foster.We had an overnight trial run with a dog, and since then we’ve been helping out where we can!
How long have you been volunteering with our rescue?
Do you have any pets?
Benny and Peach (the cat)
Where is your favorite dog friendly place to take your pooches?
Rosedale Mall on Sunday mornings and any dog-friendly brewery in the area!Love to show off great manners!
When not surrounded by dogs – what can you be found doing?
Playing video games, reading, or knitting. (Usually still surrounded by at least one dog.)
Do you have a favorite memory with one of your fosters?
Too many to count!The one that first popped in to my head is when our first foster Nova found her forever home.I was with her at an adoption event at For Pet’s Sake up in Blaine.There were a number of people coming over and meeting her, no big deal.It wasn’t until she met James that she just completely hammed it up, rolling over on his lap until he rubbed her belly! That's when I knew she found the right fit!
Do you have a special ritual for your fosters?
I’m thinking of making a Wall of Fame with pictures of all the dogs that come visit and get adopted!
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
