Did You Know That Kirk Cousins and His Wife Regularly Foster Dogs Whose Lives Would Have Been in Jeopardy Had They Been Left in Shelters?

Washington, DC - We know Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins has plenty of skills when it comes to football. But did you know he's also pretty big into playing fetch?

Millions of people will be watching as Cousins leads the Redskins in their playoff matchup against the Green Bay Packers. Among the adoring fans who will be tuning in will be a three ½-year-old wheaten terrier mix.

The dog named Gracie by her new adoptive parents was one of many pets cared for as a foster animal by Cousins and his wife, Julie. She stayed with them for the entire 2014 NFL season.

The Cousins regularly foster dogs whose lives would have been in jeopardy had they been left in shelters. Cousins often posts about the pets on social media and his wife sent FOX 5 photos of Gracie, saying in particular that she was a very tough pup to part with.

URGENT: Sixteen Puppies and Dogs Were Transported to the Maryland SPCA Today from Another Shelter, and They Need Our Help Now!

Sharing from: Maryland SPCA

Just in...Urgent: Sixteen (16) puppies and dogs were transported to the Maryland SPCA today from another shelter, and they need our help now! (See their heart-warming little faces in video below.)

Our adoption center is closed, but our expert vet staff is here staying late to examine each of the 16 pets and address their immediate medical needs. This includes finding foster care for a young dog and her five, two-week-old puppies.

A generous friend of the MD SPCA heard about how much it will cost to care for these special pets, and he's offered to match, dollar-for-dollar, any donations raised now through 11:59 p.m. tomorrow, up to $5,000!

Please help these pets by making a donation of any amount, and your gift will go twice as far to help provide medical care, warm shelter and nutritious meals to these 16 pets who desperately need saving! Even a small gift can make a huge difference!

16 Reasons Why Fostering A Shelter Pet Is Basically The Best Thing In The World

Want to make the world a better place in one easy step? Take home a foster pet from a local shelter or rescue group.

Fostering means bringing in a cat or dog -- or parrot, or baby pig, or any other homeless pet -- with the goal of nurturing them for a while until they can be dispatched to a permanent home with a family who'll love them forever.

Community Members Rallied Together to Collect Funds to Pay Medical Expenses for 15-Year-Old Dog Tossed in Garbage

Miriam Jimeno and Carlota Román from Valladolid, Spain, knew something was wrong when they heard muffled barks coming from a nearby garbage container. When the two woman came close to the large metal box they knew for sure there was a dog trapped inside the container. Someone tossed a pet in the locked automatic garbage disposal and the pet had no way out. Luckily, the women and other concerned neighbors called for help and authorities came to save the dog.

Police and firefighters arrived to the garbage bin located on the 20th block of Ferrocarril Street. They tried to reach the scared and trapped dog but couldn’t. Rescuers needed a key to unlock the bin’s locked doors. The city’s waste management office was contacted and soon a representative arrived with a key to open the bin.

Once the container was opened, rescuers learned the dog was placed inside a double and tightly knotted bag. Whoever tossed the dog wanted to make sure the pet had no way out and no chance of survival. Fortunately, the dog was saved.

Firefighters scanned the pet for a microchip and none was found. The dog, now named Abu, was transported to a local veterinarian where it was determined he is 15 years old, deaf, almost blind and suffers from an enlarged heart.

Community members rallied together to collect funds to pay for Abu’s medical needs. The senior dog is currently under the care of a rescue group (Defaniva) and is enjoying proper care and love in a foster home.

Animal rescuers hope to find Abu a forever home where he could enjoy the last of his days, which could just be a few months.

Abu’s adoption application can be found through the city’s animal rescue site: Defensa de Animales en Valladolid

Camp Springs, Maryland - Adorable Cats/Kittens Available for Adoption at Coolridge Animal Hospital - Take a Look at These Cuties…and Pick Your Favorite

In February, I shared with you several adorable cats/kittens being fostered at the Coolridge Animal Hospital. Now they are all available for adoption.

While Coolridge is an Animal Hospital, and not a shelter, the staff came upon three cats and took them in, treated them, and now they are ready for their forever homes.

One cat, Iris was found alone, and later the staff found that she was the mother of two cute kittens. The staff named them Frito and Cheeto.

Our fosters Garrett and Gracie seeking their forever home together. They are an adorable pair that love playing together and have a special bond.

Garret, is a 1 -2 year old lovable male. We have been fostering him until we can get him a forever home, hopefully with his sister Gracie. He is healthy and need no medical care for 6 months at next check-up, has been neutered and tested.

We found Gracie, after we found Garrett.  They are from the same home. Gracie is 1-2 years old and up to date on all annuals, and spayed, she will only need a 6 month check-up in 6 months, she is a healthy and happy girl!

If you have room in your home and in your heart for Garret, Gracie, Iris, Frito or Cheeto,
