MABTR Family - Lori in CO
"This is the start of your sweet little story. The part where your page meets mine."
I have been volunteering with MABTR since March of 2021. After not having a dog for about a
year (my dog passed away in 2019), I realized how much I missed the company of a four-
legged friend. I came across MABTR online and read about the foster program. I
wasn’t familiar with Bostons but fell in love with their cute faces right away! I realized volunteering as a foster parent was a perfect opportunity to learn more about the breed and help out how I could.
Since I am a “petless foster”, I see more of the Bostons that don’t always get along with other dogs. But I think these dogs have just figured out how to get all the attention and love for themselves! They are
sweet, loving dogs that just prefer to be in a one-dog home. Nothing wrong with that.
I am always amazed at the resiliency of these dogs. What brought them to MABTR was not their fault and some have really sad stories. But they all have so much love in their heart, even after what they’ve been through. I want to help each and every one find a home where they can receive the love they deserve.
My favorite part about volunteering for MABTR has to be the dogs! They are all so special and I enjoy bonding with them and watching their personalities shine as they become relaxed and leave behind the circumstances that brought them to MABTR. They are my hiking buddies, and we go outside for a walk every day!
At first, I was nervous to get involved. I had never been a foster parent before, I wasn’t familiar with the process, but Jennifer is so knowledgeable, she’s always been able to help me.
I would encourage anyone who is considering volunteering to DO IT! Being a foster parent or volunteering in any way you can is so rewarding and every little bit that we can do will help so many Bostons find loving homes.
