Me and my roommate decided to stay in our off campus home during the COVID-19 crisis. During this time we decided to do a good thing and foster a dog because we know they are lonely and we had a lot of time on our hands. We decided to foster a dog because we wanted to give him a chance to be adopted by one of our families or by someone we know. Turns out we fell in love with the dog because he was so sweet, very easy going, and very loving. However, we were only able to keep the dog for about 3 days because he ended up getting adopted by a family back in Lynchburg. We were very sad to see him go but we were very happy they we were able to give him a temporary home before he found a forever home. I am a huge animal lover and I was very happy I got to experience fostering a dog and I think others should do so as well because it was a great experience.
