If permanent homes can’t be found for the dogs, foster volunteers are sought.
“We give you bedding, we give you food, supplements, a leash, a collar, their heartworm medication, some toys,” Ellison said. “All you have to do is to provide the love.”
Heather Smith is a foster volunteer who has taken home a pair of two-year-old greyhounds.
“Mike and Abel, they are the best,” Smith said. “They are littermates. Wherever I am they go. They are attached to me. I can call them by their names and come right to me. They give kisses, they love to be hugged.”
