Our Families Foster Experience, The Owens’ Family
We lost our dear rat terrier Rhett to cancer after 12 years of having him in our life. His death left a HUGE hole in our family. We thought we would eventually get another dog to fill the void, but decided our baby boy could never be replaced. We decided to use the love in our hearts for Rhett and share it with animals in need of love. Through the foster program with Pawmetto Lifeline we have gotten to love and nurture soooo many awesome animals. We have really enjoyed teaching shelter animals what it means to be loved by a family. Many of them have never had that kind of love and nurturing in their lives. We have even gotten to foster new born puppies and kittens which is something my kids would NEVER get to do with our own pets since I get them spayed and neutered. Letting go of these animals always leaves a lump in our throat, but we remind ourselves that there are a LOT of animals out there that need us. I think that Rhett is happy watching us pass our love for him onto Pawmetto Lifeline’s shelter pets.
