Mutt Militia, meet long time Marley’s foster, Jassmine Marvel. Jassmine has been fostering for the past 7 or 8 years and has had around 150 foster dogs during that time. She wanted to do something to fulfill her love of dogs and was placed with her first foster the very day she filled out the application.
Jassmine has 3 favorite fosters, P-Diddy the min pin, Gordon and Queenie, who was fostered with Jassmine until she crossed the Rainbow Bridge recently. Her most challenging foster was a rottie who took out the air conditioner in her kitchen and escaped out the window!
The most rewarding part of fostering for Jassmine is knowing she is saving lives and watching a shut down dog come to life right before her eyes. Dogs don’t judge you.
If you are considering fostering, Jassmine has these encouraging words- “Marley’s Mutts is the best dog rescue in the world. You get to help a dog that has no chance at life, get a life. They take care of all the medical needs, food, toys, leashes and you get to socialize them, take them to adoption events and be a part of something much bigger. You get a whole new family that stands behind you.” Jassmine is a recovering addict, now 21 years clean, with a love for life. She loves anything to do with the water and says she is a pretty good wake boarder. Jassmine loves helping people that want help and getting to share fostering with all her girls at Minnie Marvels. She especially loves fostering the medical cases, geriatrics and special needs dogs.
Thank you Jassmine for your dedication not only to fostering, but to changing the lives of women and children through Minnie Marvels!
