Happy Valentine’s Day!

Last Saturday, Foster Dogs Inc organized a Valentine’s Day adoption event called “My Furry Valentine.” 7 out of the 14 dogs – 50% – have been adopted by people they met at the event! Some went home same-day, some a few days later. They all are getting their happily-ever-afters!

Held at Vaute clothing shop in the Lower East Side, this event featured 14 adoptable dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds, from 6 local rescue organizations: Animal Haven, Animal Lighthouse Rescue, IVE Rescue, Ready for Rescue, PupStarzRescue, Heavenly Angels Animal Rescue. VIEW EVENT PHOTOS on our Facebook page.

Event was held at Vaute Couture, Lower East Side

Several dogs were adopted at the event, and many wonderful dogs are still available (currently in foster care or safe in a shelter). Meet the dogs, info below!

We were lucky enough to have our volunteer photographer Stacey Axelrod with us for the afternoon, to capture these beautiful moments.
