Our foster pup!

UPDATE!!! PEANUT HAS BEEN ADOPTED! SHE WILL MOVE IN WITH HER FOREVER FAMILY NEXT THURSDAY!! Yay Peanut!!

A friend of ours volunteers with the Selma Animal shelter, helping homeless pups find loving families on pretty much a daily basis. I don't even want to know how many miles she has put on her car driving pups around to foster homes, forever homes and rescue shelters. She is very dedicated to the animals and does a ton to help them in anyway she can.

One of the ways our friend Kim helps dogs find new homes is by posting homeless pups' photos on the Selma Animal Pack Facebook page and Twitter. She provides as much information as possible, hoping people will see the photos, fall in love with a face and story and provide a forever home or foster home for the animal.

I am constantly amazed at how much Kim does for the shelter and the pups, and I figured, hey, we already have two dogs, what's one more right? And we agreed to foster a pup. Our first foster pup has currently been with us for about 3 weeks. She is a 3-4 year old papillon mix who weighs around 7 pounds. She is very sweet, very snuggly and very loyal. She LOVES her people. She is good with Keegan (not all dogs can tolerate a three year old!) and good with out other two dogs. We are working on housetraining, and she's probably about 65-75% of the way there. She is also crate trained. She has truly been a wonderful little house guest.

We have a couple of people potentially interested in permanently adopting Peanut, and she just truly wins you over the moment you meet her, so I'm not surprised everyone says "Oh I just love her! I wish we could adopt her!" (though they already have pets, live in apts, etc) but so far, she has not been officially adopted, so if you or someone you know can provide a loving, stable and forever home for her, please feel free to contact me.

Here are a couple of photos of Peanut (who Keegan initially named Mollie Peanut Butter)If you are interested in adopting an animal or becoming a foster family please visit the Selma Animal Pack Facebook page or contact the shelter via email program_coordinator@selmaa
nimalpack.org. There are so many amazing animals just waiting to find there forever families or simply get out of kill shelters until they can find that forever family. If you can help, please do! Fostering has been a great experience for our family so far!
