From Foster to "Furever" - - Pico's New Life

This is a story of a "furever" foster . . .

Once upon a time, there was a sweet young Staffordshire terrier who was languishing, thin and in poor health, in an overcrowded shelter.  This unfortunate fellow was rescued by OPIN in March of 2012, was given the veterinary care he needed, and began the road to a full recovery.  To help him on his way, a wonderful family in North Stamford opened their home to him as a foster, and . . . well, as they say, the rest is history.  These kind people fell in love with Pico, adopted him in September, and now, just take a look at his Christmas card photo.  Do we have to say any more?

Please consider fostering a homeless pet.  There is nothing that equals a nurturing home experience in preparing an animal for future rehoming.  And there's nothing more gratifying to a loving pet guardian than to provide an innocent dog or cat the opportunity to flourish away from the noisy, crowded and overwhelmingly stressful shelter environment.  And who knows? -- you might just meet the next love of your life that way.  Pico's amazing parents did. 

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good life.
