Featuring Fosters and Medical Successes!

This month, we’re featuring fosters Lee and Betsy Collins

How long have you been fostering for Saving Grace?

We started volunteering at Saving Grace 7 years ago, loved it and wanted to do more and began weekend fostering 6 years ago, that grew into “regular” fostering 5 years ago.

Why did you decide to start fostering?

It’s simple, to make a difference! Way too many dogs in North Carolina are not being given a chance. Fostering helps give these dogs a second chance. It gives them the opportunity to turn a bad situation into a lifelong family. The more foster homes we have the more dogs we can save.

Did you have experience with fostering prior to Saving Grace?


Do you have pets? How many and what type?

We have 2 dogs from Saving Grace. Our first adoption is what made us love Saving Grace so much. Lilly Bell (now Colby) is almost 9 years old. She is part Husky, Greyhound, Beagle and all around perfect. Our second Saving Grace dog was a foster who gave birth at our house. Hattie is a 6-year-old brindle pit bull/ mastiff that has stolen our hearts.

Who in the household helps with fosters?’

It’s just the two of us and we are equal partners in crime. Lee has a weak gag reflex, so Betsy helps a lot with the poop. Lee handles the pen engineering.
