She and her dog Sochi have welcomed several former fosters, Cosmas and Tyson, into their home.
Lindsay found Jasmine’s House when she was looking for opportunities to foster rescue dogs. She had gotten her own yellow Lab, Sochi, from a fostering program for Labs and was impressed that because of the generosity of the foster parents; Sochi was able to live in a loving home, instead of a shelter, until Lindsay was able to find her.
Her first foster dog, Cosmas, was a very lovable guy who arrived with a hideous case of mange and a handful of other resolvable problems. We dropped him off to her wearing one of those giant plastic cones around his neck, with stitches under his eyelid and a wound on his knee. Our favorite story about lindsay was when we received this email a few days later.

If you can believe it, she continued to foster him back to a state of emotional and physical wellness until he went home about 5 months later. A few months later, she came back for more with Tyson, though, he didn’t eat any doors!
