Badass Lindsey has recently returned to fostering after adopting precious Allie (fka Lilly Pulitzer) from us last year. The current temporary resident, Connie Anne Phillips, has quickly reminded the whole family what it’s all about! Lindsey writes: “The biggest reward of fostering is seeing the progress these dogs make over such a short period of time. Most of our fosters have come from less than desirable living situations and have had to learn how to trust people again. Seeing a dog transition from sleeping alone in the corner to the foot of our bed within a couple of days is hugely rewarding. Not to mention there is a revolving door of great dogs you get to share your couch with for a few days/weeks at a time. I have fostered with other organizations before BBAR, but love BBAR because you never feel like you’re alone when it comes to rehabilitating these dogs. Badass has a huge network of volunteers that help with transportation to vet appointments, adoption events, etc. And, even if you don’t think you can handle the responsibilities associated with a puppy, for example, there are tons of dogs like 6 year old Connie Anne who just wants to sleep on your lap all day!”
