Even if you can't adopt one of your own yet, there's still a chance that you can foster! Often times, there are more horses and do that come in that no one person can take care of on their own, so having others there that are willing to help is always a bonus! The more space we have to bring others in, the more lives we are able to save. By fostering a horse or dog, you will completely change its world. Fostering means that you assume physical responsibility for the daily care of one or more WRR residents without the permanent commitment of ownership. All critters in the WRR Foster Care program are healthy and carefully selected for friendly temperament as well as their natural desire to bond with their caretakers. We will work with you directly to choose a horse or dog who fits your lifestyle and farm.
If you have the love to give and space to help, contact us today! Fosters are a vital part of our network! The more fosters we have, the more horses and dogs we can help. We're looking for dedicated and experienced handlers willing to house a horse or dog for at least 2 months or until a Forever home can be found.
DEAR FOSTER MOM:
There I sat, alone and afraid,
You got a call and came right to my aid.
You bundled me up with blankets and love,
And, when I needed it most, you gave me a hug.
I learned that the world was not all that scary and cold,
That sometimes there is someone to have and to hold.
You taught me what love is, you helped me to mend,
You loved me and healed me and became my first friend.
And just when I thought you'd done all you do,
There came along not one new lesson, but two.
First you said, "Sweetheart, you're ready to go,
I've done all I can, and you've learned all I know."
Then you bundled me up with a blanket and kiss,
Along came a new family, they even have kids!
They took me to their home, forever to stay,
At first I thought you sent me away.
Then that second lesson became perfectly clear,
No matter how far, you will always be near.
And so, Foster Mom, you know I've moved on,
I have a new home, with toys and a lawn.
But I'll never forget what I learned that first day,
You never really give your fosters away.
You gave me these thoughts to remember you by,
We may never meet again, and now I know why.
You'll remember I lived with you for a time,
I may not be yours, but you'll always be mine.
