During this festive time we will be showcasing our “Twelve days of FOSTERS”. We invite you to virtually ‘meet’ some of our life saving fosters and we are hoping that their stories inspire you to join our team so that we can save even more beagles in 2016! If you are ready to join us in our mission, please fill out a foster application here: http://tribeagles.org/foster/
On the Eighth Day of FOSTERS the beagles would like you to meet………
Kim lives in Hillsborough and has been fostering beagles since 1998!

In that time I have fostered over 40 awesome beagles who all found their forever homes. Working in EMS I am familiar with rescuing people which is the perfect companion profession for animal rescue. I live with my four beagles in Hillsborough. Often called the Northern Hillsborough Dog Park, my beagles and foster dogs enjoy 3/4 acre fenced dog play area.
My friends and family often refer beagles in need to me for help. My beagle family loves to meet new beagles and welcomes the temporary family member as one of their own. I am so happy watching a beagle use the doggy door for the first time, enjoying a comfy bed, snuggling, and watching trust grow. Most people think it must be hard to foster and say goodbye when the time comes, however I love the excitement of the new family, and proudly know that my foster is going to be the center of attention and will receive much love and care.
My current foster, Mama, is my most special foster of all. Mama has proven to me and my beagles that three legs are better than four! I can’t wait for you to meet Mama as she spreads a smile no matter where she goes. Her little personality personifies the merry little hound description of the Beagle.”
Thank you Kim for you many years of dedication to the beagles!
