My sweet little Betty passed away January 2016. I only had her a short time. She was an older dog with a heart problem. We never planned to have a dog and we had been fostering kittens for several years which was all we could handle. But the Humane Society reached out to us one summer and asked if we could fatten up Betty so she would be ready for adoption. We said yes and thus began the slow decline to becoming "foster failures". Betty was nicknamed Betty Spaghetti because she was so skinny. We brought her home gave her food and love and she soon became adoptable. By Halloween she was adopted, but sadly, shortly after Christmas she was returned skinnier than ever. Also at that time we ended up adopting two of the most gorgeous Maine Coon kittens we had been fostering.  I immediately brought Betty back home and to better health. But by April she was still not adopted. So for my birthday we decided to adopt her ourselves because in truth she must have been ours all along. Betty was a joy to have in the short time she was with us and she was my little shadow. I miss her. Being a foster family for the Humane Society was an incredibly rewarding experience and I highly recommend it. It is a wonderful way to volunteer by providing short term care for kittens and puppies that are too young to be adopted. Many times we had the mom cat with the kittens too. You can also care for injured or sick animals. The Humane Society offers a low cost Spay/Neuter Wellness Clinic as well as the chapel where we brought Betty to be cremated. It is so peaceful there and I am looking forward to seeing the memory brick for Betty once it's installed. The landscaping around the Rainbow Bridge Chapel, Ella's Walk , and the Canine Meet and Greet area at the front of the property were Boy Scout Eagle projects. My daughter and JoSpeech's daughter earned their Girl Scout Silver Award by installing cat walk shelves in the cat room inside the shelter. Take a look around the Humane Society of Brevard, perhaps you might decide to volunteer or adopt. Please remember to always spay and neuter. The cache was lovingly created with the help of JoSpeech and her hubbie and serves as a small memorial to my sweet Betty Spaghetti.

FTF will get some Paw Bucks to spend in the various Molly Mutt Thrift shops located throughout Brevard County.
