From Foster to Fur-ever!

Sandy was with the Humane Society of El Paso for a very long time, but she did not spend all of her time in a kennel: Sandy was part of the "Adopt Me" Foster Program, and went straight from a foster home to a fur-ever home!

Sandy was surrendered to the Humane Society of El Paso in July of 2016. She is a very shy dog, and required a lot of attention and TLC to come out of her shell. Even so, she was picky about who she gave her heart to. Sandy was adopted and returned a few times, due to her shyness. Her most recent return was in March of 2017.

In May of 2017, the Humane Society of El Paso launched its "Adopt Me" Foster Program, a program designed for animals five months of age and over to live in a temporary home while they awaited their permanent home. Sandy was the first dog to enter the program, and was finally adopted on July 21st!

Sandy learned to live in a home, and was given all of the love and care she could hope for. Huge thanks go out to the Foster Parents, the adoptive family, and all of those who made this program a success!
