HONOLULU (KHON2) — We recently told you about foster families helping out animal shelters amid the stay-at-home order.
Now, a local rescue shelter is reaping the rewards of their kindness.
Paws of Hawaii had a spike of 87 foster applications filled out within the last two weeks. They officially found a potential home for their last adoptable dog.
The director says, that’s never happened before in their entire history of the rescue.
With a foster or newly adopted dog, they say it’s important to give them time to adjust to a new home. During the first few days, your dog might not eat as much, or let you pet them. But give them a few weeks to let them adjust to their new environment.
Now, some activities that you can do with your new furry friends include looking up training videos online – and taking them for long walks.
