Fostering puppies is one of the most rewarding and fulfilling things you can ever do to help shelter dogs get ready for a forever home. By fostering shelter puppies, you’re essentially freeing up much-needed space in the shelter for other rescue dogs. You also help the puppies get ready for their forever home when the time comes that they get adopted.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, a family in Chicago decided to foster two shelter puppies named Hansel and Gretel. The family was already on self-quarantine, and they’re making it a point to stay at home and not go outside unless it’s absolutely necessary. They’re doing their part to help stop the spread of the virus, and they’re also helping out dogs in need of a home.
The couple named Steven and Dana also has a daughter who feels sad because she couldn’t see her friends and visit her grandparents because of the coronavirus crisis. Seeing their daughter so sad broke Steven and Dana’s heart. The first time Steven and Dana had Hansel and Gretel in their home, they saw their daughter’s eyes brightened with delight.
Steven and Dana were only fostering the puppies for only two weeks. However, those two short weeks turned into the weeks that they will never forget. Hansel and Gretel brought so much happiness into their home that self-quarantining became a lot more fun for the entire family.
Although the puppies were giving the couple a hard time by waking them up in the middle of the night and chewing holes in socks and shirts, they were still so adorable. The couple, especially Steven, eventually ended up falling in love with Hansel and Gretel. Although Steven and Dana were only supposed to foster the two puppies for 14 days, they decided to extend it.
On day 30, Hansel was adopted into a loving forever home. Steven already grew attached to the puppies, and it was a little hard for him to accept that Hansel was finally leaving their home. However, Steven was also happy that Hansel was going to a loving family. Here’s a heartwarming video showing how two shelter puppies stole the hearts of their foster family.
