Congratulations to Pamela on the incredible milestone of fostering 100 SCARS’ dogs as of February 2022!

Not only were 100 lives saved, but countless unwanted litters were prevented through the generous and loving volunteer efforts of Pamela and her family. We asked Pam why she fosters, and this is what she told us…

I began fostering for SCARS in December 2012 after moving into our new house. Originally I wanted to see if a large dog (which my son was begging for) would fit in our busy lifestyle. I am now a SCARS rescue mom of a husky named Iceis who we adopted in August 2013.

One of my first fosters was a burn victim. Witnessing the cruelty that is in this world, as well as the amazingly caring and dedicated volunteers involved in animal rescue, led me to continuing fostering. There are days that fostering can be gut wrenching but it helps knowing that I am part of an organization making a huge impact on animal welfare.

I have now fostered 100 dogs, helping to teach my son and nieces compassion and responsibility. As a family, we love being able to help even more animals find homes where they will be safe and loved. Fostering has been a very rewarding experience and I cannot think of a better way to spend my days than with these animals.
