Adopt-a-Dog Month & Becoming Foster Parents

October is the American Humane Association's Adopt-a-Dog Month!  Coincidentally this Bird and Bug, not so much the Pug, have decided to volunteer and become foster parents for S.N.O.R.T. (Short Nose Only Rescue Team,)  the same agency we adopted Mr. Duke from.  SNORT rescues Pugs, French Bulldogs, Boston Terriers, and English Bulldogs.  They say the average time a foster dog is kept before adoption is 1-3 months.

From their website:
SNORT is an all-volunteer registered 501(c)3 non-profit rescue based in the Northeast.  Its purpose is to rescue brachycephalic dogs (mostly French Bulldogs, Boston Terriers, and Pugs) from shelters and owners who can no longer keep them, and place them into loving homes.  We believe all dogs should be given a chance and fair evaluation.  Man's best friend sometimes does not communicate in ways which we would like, and we pride ourselves for taking the time to understand their needs.  Through education, training and matching dogs to the right homes, we hope to reduce the number of brachycephalic dogs that are euthanized unnecessarily.
Very soon we will be adding a foster dog to our family, stay tuned for details and plenty of pictures!  I've already purchased this leash to help advertise his/her availability for adoption with this fun leash:
