Aurora Dog Rescue Seeking Foster Families, Donations


My Fairy Dawg Mother, Inc in Aurora has a particularly difficult time finding people to foster and adopt in the spring and fall.

AURORA, Colo. — An Aurora-based nonprofit says spring is one of the toughest times to foster and adopt dogs.

My Fairy Dawg Mother Rescue, Inc calls for more families interested in fostering and adoption. It also requires people to donate money for additional supplies, especially as they take in some dogs with increased medical needs.

“Spring and fall are the toughest times of the year. I’ve never been able to pinpoint what it is, but it’s been consistent year after year,” Gwin said.

The season forces the rescue to rely more on people who have been long-term foster families.

“I feel like I’ve been given more from the dogs than I’ve ever given away because I learn so much about each dog. They’re amazing animals. They’re so resilient. They’re so forgiving,” said Alistair Bane, who has taken in 313 dogs. dogs during his lifetime.

Currently he is adopting a dog named Winston and another dog who is currently not up for adoption due to the amount of rehab and recovery she still has to undergo after she is believed to have fallen from a moving car left on the side of the road.

“Being in foster care is the best experience I’ve ever had in my life. I’ve learned so much from dogs. It’s a way to save a life,” Bane said.

For people who want to help but cannot adopt or foster, the association also needs monetary donations. They are currently trying to raise $10,000 to provide necessary dental extractions and heartworm treatments for some of the dogs in their current care.
