Angie & Jeff Summers

Angie & Jeff Summers first got involved with FFAR in 2017 when they went to an adoption event and fell in love with a black lab who they named Rosco.  They began transporting animals to appointments when along came their first foster, a great Pyrenees who had been abandoned in the mountains and survived all winter.  It only took a few days and she became their first foster fail.  Over the past several years, they have fostered to help over 150 pups find their forever homes.  Our human kids are all grown so we now spend the majority of our time loving on our pack of BIG dogs,  3 Great Pyrenees and 2 Lab mixes, and one little Foster boy Chaco who may end up staying with us forever...

Katie L in Boise

I have always been an animal lover and after taking in my first medical foster, I became addicted to helping dogs find loving homes. I foster, help with the rescues' social pages, microchip management, and walk dogs to get them out of the kennels. Outside of volunteering, I work in digital marketing, and spend a lot of time outdoors with my dog Kevin!
