A Foster Hospice Story

On November 4, 2019, a 6-year-old white and tan happy-go-lucky dog came to our shelter. Her name was Wendy, and while we see tons of animals every day, there was something special about this one. Perhaps it was the gigantic grin she had spread across her round, squishy face or the way she would trustingly (and often unexpectedly) wiggle her way into a stranger’s lap for cuddles. Initially, we had no problem finding her a home. She was quickly taken in by a foster family, where she happily stayed until she developed a cough and had to come back to our shelter for a wellness check.
