|Our Crew with previous Foster, Chef|
Where is your favorite dog friendly place to take your dogs?
We are considered regulars at both The Howe and Venn Brewing Company, which are in walking distance from us, and are known as the girls who foster adorable dogs. We take our fosters out on the town as soon as possible. Not only do staff rotate over to us but patrons come snuggle, take pictures, and leave with thoughts of Pitties on their minds. It’s also a great opportunity for us to get to know our pup and understand where the teaching and learning should begin.
When you're not surrounded by dogs, what can you be found doing?
It’s funny that that is genuinely difficult to answer! Outside of adventuring with dogs, I can be found listening to live music, hanging with friends (although my closest friends include lots of dogs), engaging in conversations about equity and race, and facilitating training on Trauma-Informed Schools, Restorative Practice and Cultural Proficiency.
Do you have a favorite memory with one of your fosters?

|3T is perfect for me!|
Clover had a very large scar on her neck from a mass that was removed prior to coming to rescue. In order to protect her scar from scratching as she grew, she wore 3T toddler polo shirts. We collected (by donation and purchase) quite the wardrobe for her. She brought me so much joy and made it difficult to remember that dogs don’t typically wear clothes, especially in the summer.
Do you have a special ritual you do for your foster pups?

Want to give a shout out to anyone in the MPBR family?
Ashley Auren and Corey Lundgren have been totally wonderful to work with. Whether trying to assist with photo shoots, folding t-shirts Marie Kondo style, offering advice for the naughty puppies, tag-teaming on transport or simply being a super solid point of contact, they both reinforce why we choose MPBR.
