More than flowers and plants were found at Bachman’s on Jan. 14. Safe Hands Rescue’s pet adoption event added dogs to the mix. The event allowed potential adoptees a chance to meet and play with dogs currently being fostered around the Twin Cities.
Safe Hands Rescue is a foster-based animal rescue organization. They focus on “rescuing and rehoming dogs from overcrowded, high intake, low adoption shelters.”
Madelyn Wuestewald, currently fostering Sierra, started fostering in 2020. Wuestewald says her favorite part is, “seeing [the dogs]personalities change, seeing the dog they were and after and knowing that they get to go to a good home.”
Safe Hands hosts meet and greets with their foster dogs throughout the Twin Cities.
“I would say as long as you have the means and the energy to keep up with little new puppies definitely [foster]it’s so rewarding. It’s kind of like a little taste of getting a dog without having to be responsible for 10+ years.” Wuestald said.
