In the summer of 2013 I had been following the urgent page for Fort Worth Animal control. There was a mom dog with 3 puppies on the euthanasia list. I said in the post that I would foster if rescues would tag (at the time I had no idea that not all rescues are created equally). We got down to the shelter and picked up a very skinny flea and tick infested mom and two puppies since the shelter adopted one out.
DogRRR is more than just a rescue organization. DogRRR is a community. Dogs aren't just pulled from a local shelter and adopted out to the first application. You search shelters from all over the metroplex, accept transports from other high kill shelters in South Texas and take in dogs directly from the street.
As a new foster, not really knowing what I was getting into, I can say the last 6 months have been more than I could have ever hoped for. DogRRR has a great support system for the newbies like me, and I have had the opportunity to meet incredible people that I never would have met otherwise.
