Creating Pet Safe Communities in Neighborhoods across America
"I ask people why they have deer heads on their walls. They always say because it's such a beautiful animal. There you go. I think my mother is attractive, but I have photographs of her."
The PET FOSTER PARENTS SUPPORT NETWORK is needed because although the issues we face as Pet Foster Parents and the organizations we volunteer for may be unique, individuals Pet Foster for two primary reasons: 1. To reduce the number of homeless animals in our communities. 2. To find forever homes for the animals who may be thought of as " second chance pets". The contribution Pet Foster's make to their community is unsung. Many homeless and other wise "un adoptable" animals find their forever homes because of the volunteers who Pet Foster in rescues and established Pet Foster programs in city run and county funded animal shelters.
We want to collaborate with community organizations, organized non profit groups and individuals interested in establishing and maintaining Dog Parks and with local governments to create and sustain pet safe and pet friendly spaces.

Mrs. Parker's Doggy Books
What is HUMANE EDUCATION? What does the term "Animal Welfare" mean to you? Ask this question in a crowded room, coffee shop or on at the dinner table and the answers may surprise you. MRS. PARKER'S DOGGY BOOKS is a series of diverse tales between humans and animals, animals and animals and animals and nature. Our inspiration? Oakland Animal Services Rescue dog Mrs. Penelope Parker - "Mrs. P" to her friends.
These books are a collection of anecdotes, tips and challenges recounted from spending time with Mrs. P. Our stories include observations she has made living with cats and her dog, LJ. Fricke with whom she intimately engages, and other animals and human acquaintances to teach and influence children and adults about the value and relevance of treating all animals with the dignity and respect they deserve. If you laugh, cry or are moved after reading one of our yarns - we have accomplished my goal. Mrs. Parker's Doggy Books - Tall Tales from a very small Dog!

Resilient Educated Attentive Dedicated ( READ ) - we want you to become familiar with, have access to and share, tools and resources which keep you Animal Welfare Literate. Humane Education can take many forms and requires a multi-cultural approach in order to understand and appreciate how our human neighbors at home and across the globe view, act upon and set policy for - the environment, animals and marine life. Additionally, Humane Education is best approached from a multi-disciplinary perspective, why?
Animals are living beings who do not speak ( recognized human languages ) and can not vote ( on laws that affect THEM ) therefore a humane approach to their welfare is needed because if man has "dominion" over all creatures then man should know all there is to know about his avian, four legged, finned and scaled neighbors if he ( man ) is to thrive and have a sustainable future. Below additional resources - a growing data base to help you strengthen your Animal Welfare Literacy skills the more you know the more you can help save lives, prevent abuse, eradicate ignorance. Animals can not speak be there advocate be patient and have courage, you can become Animal Welfare Literate!
The Pet Protect Resources we list ( Shelter Me ) for Women and Children who are living in family shelters and who are part of Domestic Violence Networks are from Dr. Frank R Ascione - the father of the movement. My Best Friend Pet Protect should be a vital part of your Neighborhood Safety Program because children can not vote and animals can not speak.
Together we can create communities which: protect, shelter and find justice for our most vulnerable neighbors, victims of abuse. SILENCE KILLS - My Best Friend Pet Protect Kids and Pets TOGETHER.
