Name: Bindi Adopted: May 2018 Owner: Florence Margan My Story: Bindi now lives in the Blue Mountains happily with her Mumma. She was a very frightened dog of people, other dogs, buses, trucks and utes with a cage at the back. She did actually nip a friend of mine because she didn’t like people’s hands….
This has always been one of our favourite pages. Our carers would like to thank the new owners of their beloved former foster animals for taking the time to share updates and pictures.
Our carers are constantly asked, “How can you do it? I’d never be able to give them up!” The answer is…it can be really hard! We have had a fair few foster failures (i.e. dogs and cats that are adopted by their carers) and all carers have that one (or that dozen) dog or cat that they will never forget. The ones that you get misty eyed about when you get an email update telling you how wonderful he or she is doing…
Each foster animal is taken in as a member of the carer’s family and they love them all. Even that dog that ate your lounge or the cat that scratched up the legs of your brand new table. They all leave little, or big, paw prints on your heart. The letters you read on this page should give you a clear idea of how we can keep having fosters that enrich our existence for a time and then are gone.
Each one of these amazing pets was due to be put to sleep, each of them has received a second chance and each of them has found their “forever family”.
How can we do it? We do it for the animals. For every cat or dog that we can find that special “forever family” for, means there’s another dog or cat we can help!
If you’ve adopted a pet from HAR and you’d like to tell us your success story please do.
