For over five years now, Stacee Jones has fostered over 100 dogs and cats. This is her way of helping animal shelters that reach their maximum capacity. In Stacee’s words, she does this because it is her vocation to help disadvantaged animals.
Since she has already gotten used to the hustle and bustle of fostering, Stacee thought she had seen it all. But a recent realization gave the woman a reality check that each animal she fosters has their story to tell.
As someone with a large lawn in her place, Stacee makes it a point to foster as many dogs and cats as possible. She has partnered with Jelly’s Place, a San Pablo, California-based animal shelter for this particular venture.
One of the dogs that Stacee recently fostered leave an impression on the woman that she will never forget. The pooch had lost all her puppies and had been dumped by her former owners. The thought of losing your children is heartbreaking, and Stacee understands what the mother pooch feels.
This is why Stacee agreed to foster the pooch for a while. This is because the animal shelter is looking for a potential home for the dog. The fosterer thought that Nika would be challenging to deal with because of the dog’s recent loss.
With this, Stacee thought of focusing her energy on the dog’s healing. Stacee believed that the first thing that would help the pooch is by letting the dog be a mother to other animals under her watch. This is why Stacee brought a kitten to the pooch to see how Nika would react.
Stacee got caught off guard because the pooch did not show any signs of aggression. Instead, Nika held the kitten into herself and tried to protect the little creature. Stacee knew that the pooch would make a good mom, so she let the pooch become a temporary mother to the shelter’s kittens.
