There is a volunteer with the rescue group I’m involved with who will soon be on her 100th foster dog. She currently has #93 and 94 in her home today. That is amazing, people! She has 4 dogs at all times; one is her own (foster failure), and 3 are fosters. She’s a grandma type lady. Everyday they all go to the dog park rain or shine.
What would be some cool ideas to thank her? I was thinking of getting the local newspaper involved to do an interview on her. Not sure if they will be up for that kind of story, but she needs some recognition!
Nothing too elaborate (like a gala or anything!) since I’ll probably be organizing/planning/buying “it” myself.

Seeing if the local newspaper would do a story is such a sweet idea! Other simple stuff would be a pot luck or a small party with a cake. Maybe you could also get a little trophy engraved for her? I don’t know if that’s too cheesy though LoL

I love the idea of a newstory, and local paper eat this stuff up! Just give them the idea and let them know you are open to the day it is run on.
If it is possible, can you reach out to the families of the dogs she has fostered and ask them to send her a “Thank you” and update on the pet? She probably remembers each dog and would appreciate knowing they are living a great life.

Wow, what an amazing woman. I second the idea of getting notes or pictures updating on the foster dogs who have been places in forever homes who she helped. And as a former journalism student, I would DEFINITELY do a feature story on this, no question–if your local town paper won’t do a story on it, maybe contact a local college or high school and see if they will pick it up.

@KH: Love this idea.
I was going to suggest reaching out to the families who adopted the dogs, and maybe arranging a picnic/barbecue in a park or something, could get a little hectic with a million dogs, but then she’d get to see all her old puppies and be thanked in person.
