Please go to Basenjirescue.org and join as a member. It will show you are serious about helping. BRAT always needs good foster homes. A home visit will be required (not sure if that is possible at this time considering this COVID-19 crisis). It is especially helpful if you have basenji experience. Not always, but very often, a basenji coming into rescue has special needs (i.e., behavioral, medical, etc.). It is good to ask yourself if you and your family are willing to deal with that. Fostering is hard but it can also be a wonderful and rewarding thing to do.
Whispering, why we do rescue
I am the dog you see on the chain.
I am the cat you see in the drain.
I am the friend who has no home.
I am the stray who lives all alone.
I am the friend you helped today.
I am the one you transported far away.
I am the voice you hear in your head.
I am the caged animal who often dreads.
I am the opinion you are trying to change.
I am the anger you feel, and the rage.
I am the tears you cry when I am sick.
I am the hurt you feel, but cannot fix.
I am the voice in your head, when you cannot sleep.
I am the reason for the long hours that you keep.
I am the voice who desperately needs you,
And if not you?then who?
I am whispering
and you are my voice.
I sure wish I knew who wrote this.
How wonderful and so descriptive. I'm going to copy this one, if I may?
Yes, please. I just wish I knew who was talented enough to put how I feel into words.
Beautiful Sharron..I might borrow it too..
Please share it..if it opens one home to a dog in need, its done what the author intended.
