I first connected with CK Rescue after spending many months looking at the numerous groups on Facebook that revolved around dogs and rescues. I just loved reading their stories and the beautiful testimonies accompanied with pictures or videos of precious animals. Having just retired and spending two years trying to figure out just what I was going to do I started contemplating perhaps becoming a foster.
CK rescue was by far the most outstanding group, a community all of its own. I filled out an application and my journey and wonderful adventure began. Since then I have been blessed with wonderful young pups that has enriched my life and my family of dogs. I have been with this wonderful group for a year now.
Starting with a pup that I was caring for, he ended up being surrendered to CK rescue, and I became a foster- failure as I adopted him! Watching ( I call it the wagon train of pups) come from the south on their long trek across country to Canada is another experience and exciting to see your foster through his/ her journey through photos posted on FB.
The dogs I foster do not last long as within weeks they have applications for forever homes. The incredible experience takes you to the pending adoptees home with your pup to ensure that it is a suitable forever home and family. As my close friends and family know me only too well, they see how much I bond with ever one of the pups, but it is truly another kind of joy to know that they will be treasured and cared for in a new family (in the majority of cases) I have not met an unloving pup, they each have their own precarious past life, and I feel so happy that I am able to be that soft place and spoil them with an abundance of love in this transitional time of in their precious lives. The organizers and committee of people in this program have proved to be so unbelievably devoted… I marvel at their time, energy, devotion, dedication, and love that they pour into this rescue. Starting with Nancy Ball the founder, the ladies I have met have been a joy to get to know and rely on for any issues that may unfold. And as I only participate in the foster part, they have socials, fund raising and so many more activities to get involved in.
” Becoming a foster with CK Rescue has enriched my life and that of my furry family of dogs. It has fulfilled my love and joy of being able to smother these precious pups, while being introduced to different breeds of dogs, and providing them with a comfortable home through this transitional time in their lives”
