Enchanted Needs a Foster Home

Reading my email this morning, I opened a note sent from CJ, the President of the Greyhound Rescue and Rehabilitation Group. I swore I would not foster again. I am an advocate for greyhound rescue, and the foster program is what saves thousands of dogs every year, but my Inn is a bit full right now.

With three greyhounds in residence I have been focusing on their care and well-being. They are my adopted fur-kids, Mystery, Lion and Wizard. Recently, I lost Webster in a precious sweetheart who was a rescue twice, once from the track and once from his first home. I wondered if I am ready for taking on a new foster.


Drinking my coffee, and reading Wicked River, The Mississippi, I took a break to catch up on overnight email. That’s when I read about Enchanted, a four year old cat safe greyhound from Florida needing a temporary home, something clicked inside. When you are involved in greyhound rescue, it is hard to explain, but a kismet like cloud will often descend over you and you are stuck in the moment. The mind starts to wander and plan and then visualizing the what ifs.

I looked him up on the greyhound database with no success. Am I crazy, I thought? This is not what I need right now in my life, yet I’m drawn to this dog, his need, saving another greyhound. CJ said he is a sweetheart, and looks like the RCA dog. I like sweethearts, my male Wizard is also a sweetheart, and the two names just seem to fit like a left and right glove. Should I foster him? What do you think guys?
