Several years ago, the Emery’s were asked to foster and emphatically replied, “NO we can't.” Barbara did not want another dog in the house, it was Sam's house! They weren’t ready to have another dog even if only for a short while. They did not think they could show another dog love; they felt guilty and afraid of the hurt. 

Since fostering was out of the question, they were then asked to consider transporting dogs from shelters and other locations to bring them into the NRGRR family. They thought about it overnight and decided this was a way they could contribute. Picking up a dog, dropping off a dog at the vet’s office—done! They could handle that. “Sign us up,” they replied.
