Inspiring NYC Program Gets Dogs Out Of Horrible Shelters And Into Loving Foster Homes

Let’s face it… As much as we animal lovers want every single dog living in a shelter to get adopted into a loving home, there are just far too many of them for that to be possible…

Of course, this varies state-to-state. In many places in the South, people don’t properly spay and neuter their pets, so the supply of shelter dogs is just too high. Then there are some shelters in other areas like New England who have to import rescue dogs from other states, so kind people can adopt them. However, all across the United States, one thing remains the same: the most important part about dog rescue is getting the dogs out of high-kill shelters and buying them more time.

That’s why canine hero Sarah Brasky decided New York City was seriously lacking a program to make up for the lack of space in kennels and animal shelters. In 2009, Brasky founded Foster Dogs NYC, an amazing organization that pairs dogs living in shelters with animal lovers who want to help them find loving forever homes, are interested in fostering before adopting, can’t commit to adoption at the time and many more reasons.

As you can see in this amazing story, Sarah has helped hundreds of dogs get out of the nightmare of living in awful shelters…and she’s hoping the following video and special messages below will help inspire people around the country to do the same.
