Kim and Sheryl Bergen-Jackson
Kim ans Sheryl live in Iowa City with their daughters, Hailey (14) and Sophie (13). They are proud pup owners of three rescue dogs; Emmer, who is an Australian Labradoodle (4), Gracie, who is a mini schnauzer (7), and Romeo, who is a schnauzer mix (8 months). They first became aware of Fur Fun Rescue when they saw Gracie listed online.
Volunteering as fosters gives them an opportunity to show love and compassion to a dog while they learn to trust humans again. It's a wonderful way for the family to help, one dog at a time. They love Fur Fun rescue and are very pleased to be able to help. Fur Fun at home, they love to laugh, play with the dogs, and have snow ball fights.
I am a retired Registered Nurse, living in the country. Enjoying life, attending church, veggie gardening and giving my time to helping neighbors. I grew up as an only child with all types of animals, birds, dogs, turtles. As an adult I had cats for years. I felt a calling to help my furry friends in need. So many bad pet owners and mistreated animals. I feel a sense of duty to help in whatever way I can. Volunteering has given me a good feeling that is hard to explain.
