LowResPIF008HI! My name is Mike, and I have fostered dogs and cats for several years. I first got involved with rescue when I fostered a mother cat and 2 four week old kittens for a Soldier who spent 11 months in Iraq. It was very difficult to give up the kittens, once the soldier came home, but the experience so enriched my life that within a week I had volunteered at a local rescue as a foster.

In February of 2007, I adopted my first Saint Bernard, an 8 week old puppy that I named Remy, and I fell in love with the breed. In the picture to the left you can see Remy sitting in (on) my lap. I have also uploaded a picture of Remy as an 8-week old puppy, primarily because he is so much more photogenic than I am.
