Operation Pets Alive

Since the endometriosis resection surgery last week, I find myself having a lot of free time. Especially because I took time off from work at my doctor’s request to recover.

He said at the minimum, I should be resting for three weeks. If I push myself, I can risk getting a hernia, tearing tissue, ripping my belly button open or worse. That leaves me with little to do in the way of actual work.

I decided to foster a dog from a kill-shelter. Operations Pets Alive, a rescue group in Montgomery County, had selected several dogs from the Conroe and Montgomery County shelters and needed fosters badly. The dogs would be kept with the foster for two weeks and then shipped up north to a no-kill shelter where they can be adopted.

I immediately applied and found a tiny, cute Corgi mix called Snuggles. She is adorable and has been keeping me company, sleeping next to me while I type or watch Netflix.


We found out she has a cold and reached out to the rescue. We then took her to the vet to make sure she is OK and they gave us antibiotics, so we’ll have to see how it goes. we’re hoping it’s something treatable like kennel cough and not something deadly like distemper.


It’s only been a couple of days but I am in love. I know I can’t keep her though. The goal is to successfully foster her to get her ready for a new family who will cherish her. That makes me feel good.
