SOAPS – New Year’s Resolution

Let’s start 2013 off by making a resolution to keep.

SOAPS has over 100 animals in foster care. Less than a dozen dedicated care givers make sure these animals are fed, cleaned up after and loved 365 days out of the year. Neither holidays, freezing rain, or 100 degree plus heat matters to these dogs and cats. All they know is that they depend on someone to make the sacrifice to see that they get the care they need and deserve.

We need more members to foster. To care enough to be there when others won’t. To take time from your family to care for these most vulnerable of God’s creation, and not make excuses, or turn your head, or leave it up to someone else. Make 2013 the year you step up, and be a foster caregiver.
