Friday's Child Is Loving And Giving: Raise! Nourish! Encourage! FOSTER!!!!

to promote the growth or development of; 
to foster new ideas; 
 to bring up, raise, or rear; 
to care for or cherish; 
to feed or nourish.

Besides a bunch of great words, there are thousands of reasons to foster.  

Here's one - a gentle giant (82lbs),  SUPER MELLOW, sleeps a lot, loves all dogs and cats and needs a place to crash for a few days so he doesn't have to go to the shelter....

Here's a couple of more reasons to foster:  They're all under 15 pounds so studio apartments would be perfect!

But sometimes fostering means you GET loved more than you GIVE love.

Meet Rihanna.

She's a 18-month-old pittie mix with a freckled coat and a ton of love to give. She's not great with other animals so she needs to be the only pet in the house, but she's a huge snuggle bug and amazingly sweet with every human (including kids!) that she meets. 

She loves to give kisses and snuggle in your lap. Plus, she's house broken! Rihanna is about 45 pounds and currently at Social Tees in the East Village. If you can foster Rihanna starting tonight or want more info, please call 917-612-4163 asap! THANK YOU!!!!


Fostering lasts a few weeks, and Social Tees can provide supplies if you need them.  Fostering is SUPER important because it's much healthier for our animals to be in homes than in cages, and it expands our shelter virtually.
AND for every cat and dog that is placed in a foster home, Social Tees can pull another out of the kill shelter. So if you are an animal-lover with commitment issues, FOSTER!!!
