WSHS University - Giving back your foster

May 13, 2020
One of the things we hear most is "How do you give back your foster animals?" and "Isn't it too hard to give them up?" In this video, four of the eight "ice cream" puppies have been divided into other homes, so Mindy talks about what it's like to "give up" a foster. Hint: the reward outweighs the temporary sadness!
