The Fosters

For two years, I volunteered for the Santa Clara Humane Society (now the Silicon Valley Humane Society). I was 16 and met my first Pit Bull, a deaf little lady named Sunny. I taught her sign language, learned about making mistakes and forgiveness, and helped Sunny get adopted. In college, I volunteered 4 years at the Sacramento County Animal Care and Control shelter - it's where Mina, the best damn dog (tm) is from. I burned out, after seeing too many dogs I really loved unnecessarily killed.

Six years would pass before I mustered the courage to re-enter the companion animal shelter world. I chose not to work with my local shelter, because they have a 98% adoption rate. Instead, I sought out a rescue that worked with a shelter with less savory statistics.

Current foster: Carter, a 7-yr-old blind mixie!

And the long suffering Mina puts up with all of them. Well, most of them.
