I have always been a huge animal lover, and before I started fostering with The Runaways Animal Rescue. I had been taking in various animals that needed a place to call home.

My fiancé surprised me with a guinea pig years ago and then we learned how mistreated many animals are. The rest is history. Any “forgotten” pet somehow made their way into our home.

I began fostering for The Runaways when I lost my job last year due to the pandemic. What better way to use all my new found free time than by taking in creatures that needed help. So I started with my first litter of four kittens and it blew up from there.


I have learned a lot in my first year of fostering and I am so grateful that I have a chance to give the little guys a fighting chance. My fiancé and I have even adopted three of our fosters because we couldn’t dare to part ways with them.
