Mon, 18 Jan 2016 11:29:28 EST Adopted two new dogs this year Hi my name is Lisa. This past year I started fostering dogs for a group called Animal Help Alliance in Las Vegas.

My two are the nicest dogs with people, but one is aggressive with other dogs. We learned that the aggression was more a lack of socialization then anything else, so we are trying to socialize her in contr...

I started fostering dogs for the local rescue when my"heart" dog Tessie died at 16 in December. I'm not a pro for sure; I walk through the kennel, and pick the old, shut down dogs that have been there a long time and never had a foster. I love to see the dogs come back to life and be loved, maybe for the first time. <BR> I would love to find some friends pursuing the same goal and sharing the same interest. I have 100 lbs to lose to get healthy. Thanks. Mon, 12 Oct 2015 15:52:49 EST Meet Teddy... I had to rejoin cause I found a little guy all should know about..

Wed, 1 Jul 2015 05:22:54 EST Hi There! Hi, I am Cena and I am back to SP after several years away. Since I was last active, I have started fostering puppies and providing medical transport services and specialize in medical fosters for a local rescue.
