Humans of BluePath: Namali, Foster

Namali and Shiloh

Namali and Shiloh

How It All Began: In researching the role of a foster, I realized that it’s an opportunity to be actively engaged in the good work BluePath does in enabling families in need to receive a service dog.

Favorite Part of Being a Foster: Although the outcome is unknown at the beginning of the process, I find it very rewarding to assist in preparing a dog for placement in the hope that this dog can eventually help a family in need.

Advice for Prospective Fosters: If you love dogs and want them in your life without the commitment that comes with “owning” a dog, this is a great opportunity. You are able to participate in BluePath’s mission and help an extremely valuable program. Even if you already have other dogs at home, you can help your community tremendously by being a part of this amazing organization.
