Foster Tails 2023: Harvey

SHARE:

Enjoy a vignette from a loving foster parent who cared for a dog named Harvey during his recovery.

We’ve been foster volunteers for DCHS since 2010. It brings us so much joy to care for animals in need. We’ve fostered our share of puppies, kittens, cats, and dogs, but we’re often called to help with medical cases or those extra-shy pups who need a quiet place to find their courage.

Sweet Harvey needed a relaxed and stress-free space where he could recover from surgery and wait for his new family. He recovered from his operation like a champ, and he was so wonderful to care for! As a senior gentleman, he enjoyed spending his days snoozing and looking for all the cuddles and pets and treats. While he wasn’t the most graceful (he definitely kept us giggling!), he was full of happy energy and had so much love to give. It warmed our hearts to play a role in his adoption; it was wonderful to meet Harvey’s new dad and feel good that Harvey would spend his retirement years getting all the love and attention he deserves.
