When Kiarra received an emergency call about a dog tied to a dumpster for three long days, she felt a pang in her heart and knew she had to act swiftly.

Upon arriving, she encountered a pup who gazed at her with sorrowful eyes, eager to be taken to a place where she would be cherished.

Rescue Mission

Given the pup’s friendly nature, Kiarra quickly placed her in the car and headed to Stray Rescue Of St. Louis.

With her gentle and affectionate demeanor, it took only a few hours at the St. Louis shelter for the hopeful pup to find a foster home.

“I was just drawn to her, so I decided that I would like to go ahead and foster her,” shared the pup’s new foster mom, Kendra.

New Life

Named Asami, the dog embarked on a journey to her new life.

Asami adapted quickly and enjoyed being with her foster mom, always staying close and following her everywhere.

She just has a rough time being left alone. If I close any door and we are on opposite sides, she will whine, howl and bark.

Even for her bathroom trips, Kendra had to accompany Asami into the backyard and wait for her to finish.

Gradually, Asami began to feel more at ease doing things on her own and being alone.

Her latest joy is playing in the snow!

She loves the snow—running and leaping around in it.

Kendra cherishes the time spent with Asami and is grateful to provide a nurturing and loving environment, helping Asami get accustomed to human presence and ready for her forever home.

Importance Of Fostering

Sadly, many pups don’t experience the happy past they deserve. After being rescued, they need someone to watch over them and rebuild their trust in humans.

That’s the role of foster parents. Many animals need customized care and a comfortable setting to regain their footing.

Foster families offer individualized attention, addressing specific needs like medical care, behavioral training, or simply providing the love they crave.

Moreover, fostering introduces rescued animals to various people, animals, and environments, enhancing their social skills and increasing their chances of adoption.

Additionally, fostering supports shelters and rescue groups. With shelters often overwhelmed by the number of animals, fostering allows them to focus on saving and housing more animals in need.

And, let’s not forget the emotional rewards foster parents receive! Making a positive impact on an animal’s life fills one’s heart with endless love, warmth, and joy.

So, unleash your inner hero, visit your local shelter, and experience the joys of fostering!

    It’s great that she found a foster home quickly, but I hope they can help her cope with separation anxiety. Any tips for others dealing with this? 🙏

    This is heartwarming, but why was the dog tied to the dumpster in the first place? That’s just awful! 😢
