Foster Heroes – Alison S. and family

“Fostering animals in need facilitates everyday discussions with my sons about compassion, kindness and thinking of others.  It is important to my husband and me that both boys grow up realizing that it is important to give help wherever it is needed.” ~ Alison S. 

Alison and her family have fostered several animals in need for us.  Here is just one of her recent success stories…



Zap and Zuzu’s Amazing Rescue Story

Zap and Zuzu were found in horrible condition outside in freezing cold weather where they had been carelessly discarded and left to die.  They both had terribly matted fur, severe frostbite, and urine burns on their little paws and tummies.  Thankfully, they were rescued in time and brought to the Humane Society of Livingston County for life saving medical care and then taken to one of our very loving foster homes to recover.

It was quite a challenging situation to help these sweet souls survive.  Both were very frightened, timid, and likely had never known what it was like to be loved and cherished. Zuzu had an especially difficult time having part of his tail removed due to frostbite and an upper respiratory infection to overcome. And, the Persian breed requires a very responsible home with someone who understands the special joys and care they need to keep healthy.

Zap and Zuzu – Happy Adoption Day!

All these challenges were met with plenty of patience and compassion from our AWESOME foster family along with support from our medical team and in a short time, these adorable, six year old, bonded Persian brothers soon flourished and were adopted into an equally AWESOME loving home!

Many grateful hearts and happy smiles all around!
