About The Foster Zoo

We have decided to blog our adventures again. So much has changed since we last blogged. Bella and Shiloh both went to their forever homes and they are in wonderful families. June Bug got adopted. We quit fostering dogs after those adoptions because Tanker's epilepsy got bad. We quit doing therapy dog work because Tanker's epilepsy got bad. Tanker passed away June 9th, 2013. We adopted a senior border collie named Shania Tankerbelle in his memory. We still have our two cats, Sweet Pea and Little Bit. Wes has started rescuing pitiful bettas from Wal-Mart and we currently have seven. We have a camper. We camp. We have focused on giving our animals the best lives possible. We are The Foster Zoo Crew and we like to have fun.

My Dream

I think that the day that the Air Force realizes that Wes is the best Airman in the entire force, they promote him to 4-star General, and we have more money than we know what do to with, I am going to buy a place in the DC area on several acres, open my own training facility, rescue dogs from high kill shelters, and train them to be service dogs and/or therapy dogs for people with disabilities, including mental disabilities. I will donate the dogs to those people for free. I will have several kennels and will train multiple dogs at a time.  I will open a camp for disabled people to come and learn how to work their new dogs, free of charge.  I will make them feel loved.  Their new dog will help give them confidence to do the things that they were once limited from doing. 

I love dogs.  I think animals have the potential of helping people more than any doctor, therapist, or nurse can.  I love how dogs do not judge you for who you are or what you've done in life. 

I love helping others.  If I ever felt a purpose in my life, that is it.  I want to die knowing that I made a difference.

That is my dream.


  1. Jude is an amazing airman and everything in your wishlist is quite plausible......except for the 4-star General spot. I think that position would completely underutilize him. He should be a First Sgt then he can help younger airman much like you help animals.

  2. That was very nice! I agree. I have always told Wes that he would make a great First Sgt. He is the most giving, serving person I know. He would do really well in that position.


We love hearing from our family and friends.
