Some word's from our amazing fosters...

Most rewarding foster experience - every adoption! In my year we started with 3 puppies that were adopted in 2 weeks and before I knew it was caring for a MegaE dog that we knew nothing about, this is still rewarding as we watch her grow at her new home. Then we had mama Riley who had 9 puppies and the feeling was WOW! Throughout this year not only was fostering memorable and rewarding by being involved other ways where we get to be with other volunteers has provided fun times" - Geri G. Foster Mom

"Probably my most memorable experience is fostering 2 of the Little Rascals danes. Those fearful, undersocialized pups made me realize my niche. I also, met a lot of amazing people through volunteering. I really love this organization. It truly is one big family." - Kelly C. Foster Mom

"Stewardship should begin with your passions, and I have always had a passion for dogs. I’m so grateful for Tiny N Tall for giving me the opportunity to foster homeless dogs and increase their probability of finding a forever home. As a family, it has been a very rewarding experience. Each of us has contributed in our own meaningful ways – even our furry family members have served as teachers and benefitted from fostering. I’m so happy that I discovered Tiny N Tall because they are organized, dedicated, and supportive to all of their volunteers, and more importantly, to the dogs. Tiny N Tall goes above and beyond to ensure that the best dogs are matched with the best families. They make it easy for me to do what I love – help dogs in need!" - Beth N. Foster Mom
