2) As a volunteer, what do you do for Magnificent Mutts?

Mostly I foster.

3) What is your favorite or most memorable Magnificent Mutts experience or story? 

I once fostered the cutest litter of beagles. As they were getting older and a little bigger, they would sometimes walk out the door one at a time. One time, one of the neighbors saw them and began counting, “1,2,3…” as they walked through the door. It was just a hilariously adorable moment!

4)  What is your favorite dog breed or dog type?

All breeds and types are my favorite!

5) What advice would you give potential fosters? 

Try it! It is SO rewarding. Yes sometimes it’s hard to give up your fosters but then new ones come!

6) What advice would you give adopters?

Best advice I can give is to be patient.
