We absolutely fell in love with this beautiful poem from DCH Animal Adoptions cat foster carer Roslyn.
For every joy you gave me, for every heartache too
it really was a privilege for me to foster you.
For every tear I cried when we had to say goodbye
I know that they were worth it
to know you didn’t die.
So many unwanted animals sit in the pounds
I long so much to help them, I want to take them home.
But I can’t save them all and this really makes me fret
I need others to step on up and save the life
of a pet.
Fostering isn’t forever, it’s just till they find a home,
It’s better than “the needle” or some tragedy unknown.
So have you room in your heart,
A space in your home
to rescue a pet or foster one so it wont
face life alone?
