Bye bye Izzy! Time to find your forever home. She is available Saturday at the The Louisiana SPCA. Someone adopt my sweet baby! This is me saying goodbye...after I left her I bawled my eyes out. Life as a foster parent is bittersweet. Now I'm watching her on the website, waiting for her to get her forever home. Have you ever fostered a pet? #Izzy #fostercat #drrachel #newswithatwist #theteachingdoctor #adopt #laspca #facebook #twitter

If you had to think of two words to describe this staff member's dog what would it be? Ralph's on the Park would call him a Salty Chihuahua!
