Anybody in need of an itty bitty lap warmer?
Look at this boy!
This is Calvin :).
Calvin's owner became very ill and could no longer take care of him and his 2 doggie siblings. Now he is in need of a new home.
Calvin is a 6 yr old JRT mix who is full of bouncy happy love <3. He adores older kids (the energy of small kids makes him uneasy - no aggression! But you can tell he's nervous). He also adores being with people because he is like a social butterfly on stubby legs. WARNING: He loves to kiss!! 💋 and he loves being on ur lap! He'd be the perfect walking companion b/c this boy just L-O-V-E-S going for walks! His whole little body shakes from head to toe in excitement :).
Did I mention he loves people? I think I mentioned that...This adorable munchkin is up to date on vaccines, microchipped, neutered, and dewormed.

Stephanie Leo, who teaches second language students grades 7-12 in the Avon Grove School District, reached out to me awhile back. Her students were doing a project where they wanted to do some research into how a person who is interested in adopting a rescue can choose the best pet for their families. The final product is this awesome video highlighting what a person would need to consider when choosing a pet for their home. The hope is that with this insight and education, people will be less likely to return theists to the a shelter or rescue. We are so grateful and so impressed with their work! GREAT JOB!!
I need fosters who will take old, young, sick, healthy, injured, able-bodied, cute, ugly, highly adoptable, difficult to adopt, big, small, active, couch potato, headcases, and mentally stable dogs. I need fosters who will understand that every single solitary dog deserves a chance at living whether he is eight weeks old or eight years old. Whether she is psycho adorable cute or is missing teeth, has one eye and who has no fur. They all deserve a chance to live a life full of love, safety, compassion, and mercy – regardless of what breed they are, what they look like, or how old they are.
But I need fosters to do it. Remember this is temporary. So even if the dog is not a dog that you would normally adopt, that’s OK! Because you’re not keeping this dog. You are only the bridge between their old life and the new. You are going to be the one that teaches them, for the first time, what love feels like. You will be their first taste of good food that’s not out of a garbage can. You will be the first soft bed they ever slept in. You will be the hand that comforts , instead of the fist that punches. It will be the most difficult job at times but it will always be the most rewarding. These dogs will fall passionately, crazy, head over heels in love with you. And a lot of times you with them. Sometimes it will be easy, and other times it will challenge every part of you. But in the end you will have saved a life. Always always always, you will have saved a life. You will be the one to transform them. How powerful is that? No matter how easy or how challenging they are, you will walk away changed for the better. Always always always changed for the better.
My fosters will tell you that we are an incredible group. We support each other, celebrate victories together and mourn the losses together. Everybody has each other’s back meaning you will not be doing this alone. You will be constantly supported by an entire family of people that will be there for you.
If you are interested in Fostering, now is the time to step up. There are so many dogs that I’m trying to prevent from hitting the shelters and the only way I can do that is with fosters. A lot of these dogs will have no chance if they go to the shelter so I need to prevent that.
Any questions, send me an email RDRanimalrescue2014@Gmail.com and I will be happy to send you information about our program along with the foster application or click here to read more.
