From Lucky's foster…
“Lucky is an angel that brings a smile to my face every day! Such a silly guy that will drop and roll over for belly rubs when meeting someone new.
Great with dogs! Gets along with my dog very well. They hang out and sometimes cuddle together. He will follow Marty around or go hang out on his own. They initiated play a little, but they mainly enjoy running outside together looking for squirrels.
Lucky apparently chases cats! I expect it’s just to play, but may be better if he has a home without them.
Hasn’t been tested with kids, but he’s an easygoing guy, so I’m sure he’d be good with children. He does jump up on people and tends to mouth when excited, so older children would be best.
He loves my mom as she is known as the treat lady! Will jump on her lap hoping for more belly rubs lol.
Lucky is a sweet, very loving guy that would fit into almost anyone's home!”
Adoption Fee | $500
Adoption fees help cover the costs associated with rescue, such as vetting, boarding, and transportation.
Prior to adoption, dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and 4Dx tested, and they receive any necessary treatment. After adoption, they are eligible for one month of free pet insurance.
For more information about adoption fees, please review our Adoption FAQs & Fees page.
Why We Love Fostering
Fostering opens you up to helping so many incredible animals. The dogs we have fostered all had different personalities, needs and quirks. We remember them all fondly. We love fostering because it is more flexible than most people would imagine. We can decide when to take a dog (so family vacations are easy to plan), what size (under 70lbs for us) and PAN is amazing at matching us with dogs that fit our needs.
Why We Love Fostering
There is a special joy in seeing the transformation from fear to trust in a foster cat’s face and posture, the first time they relax and warm up to me. There is so much comedy in a litter of crazy kittens, rollicking and tumbling, learning how to be big cats. Each foster kitty has been cared for as if they were my own, and I enjoy the confidence in the feeling that they are ready for their forever home. That is the biggest difference between choosing to adopt from a small rescue rather than a shelter, and why I love volunteering. People often ask me how I can be so strong to let such sweet kitties go to adoption, but the feeling that I have space to help another is worth the emotional goodbye. Penny is the twenty-first cat I have helped, and I am not going to stop anytime soon! Fostering for Pets Alive is by far the most rewarding volunteering I have ever done.
