1996-October 24, 2008
Red was a permanent foster with volunteer Kelli Maher. During the two years he was with her, he welcomed many fosters, making them feel comfortable during their stay. He was like the grandpa in his rocking chair watching over the youngsters, telling them to “knock it off” from time to time…except he had his orthopedic bed that he loved to lay on. Somehow Molly, a basset hound, snuck into the household but was a buddy to Red. As you can see, Red’s smile lit up any room. Red suffered a stroke in June and he struggled valiantly the last four months to stay with his foster mom, knowing how much she loved him and would miss him.
