Fur-baby Foster Fund

My name is Shannon, and those that know me know that asking for help is not my strong point. But, since I'm not really asking for help for myself, it's a little easier!
About a year ago, I lost my 16-year-old pup, and found myself alone for the first time in years. I began fostering dogs as a way to help my loneliness, but also as a way to help these babies find their furever home. After a couple of fosters, I began focusing on senior dogs. The organization with which I work, had an influx of older dogs, and I love working with them. My home and my property are like a sanctuary for them. It is calm, peaceful, and full of places to explore, or to simply lie in the sun on a beautiful day. Unfortunately, senior dogs come with their own set of issues. While the organization I work for covers medical expenses (thank goodness), food, treats, and supplements are my responsibility. I work as a fifth grade teacher, and prior to the outbreak of Covid- 19, I had a couple of extra jobs that helped cover the expenses I incur with my fosters. However, all of those jobs have now stopped, and I find myself struggling to get the supplements needed for these elderly pups. I know times are hard for everyone, but I'm hoping that some of you have an extra $1, $5, or even spare change, here or there to spare, that I could use to buy their special joint supplements, senior food, and treats. Any help is greatly appreciated, and is going to such a wonderful cause. These babies deserve love, comfort, and happiness in their old age. Even donations of food, beds, supplements, and toys are welcome, if money is tight! I don't plan on stopping the fostering anytime soon, so having extra things on hand is always helpful!
Thank you for taking the time to read my story. Thank you for caring, and thank you for your help!
