About a year & a half ago, I adopted my dog Rita from RescuedOhio. About 4 years before that, I adopted my dog Ringo from the Franklin County Dog Shelter. When I adopted Ringo, I had a job that allowed me to bring Ringo to work, but eventually I changed jobs. Knowing Ringo would be home alone a lot more, I figured he would appreciate having a friend at home.
I had always wanted to try volunteering/fostering with a rescue group. A friend of mine pointed me to RescuedOhio & I quickly got involved. Over the next 2 years, I would foster more than 15 dogs. I knew the goal was to adopt a dog - but I didn't want to keep the first dog I liked.
Beyond opening up your home, the rescue group provides all you need. Food, medicine, & more. I would recommend it to anybody who loves dogs & wants to volunteer some time. PS - there are also other ways to volunteer beyond fostering dogs.
