Our foster spotlight this month is on first time foster Robin Parente. Robin was approved to adopt from NRGRR at the end of March of this year. On her application she specified a smaller dog, in the range of 35-45 lbs. Robin felt a smaller dog would be easier for her to handle, being fairly petite herself, not to mention that she lives in a high rise apartment in downtown Raleigh. 

From the beginning her application advisor suggested she might consider fostering. With many fosters preferring their dogs to go to homes with fenced in yards, her application advisor knew the shortest route to finding a dog for Robin would be for her to foster. After some consideration, Robin threw her name into the foster pool. However, because of the pandemic, so did many others who were also quarantined at home. For the first time ever, NRGRR had more available fosters than dogs!
