NEA Humane Society in Jonesboro, AR is a non-profit animal shelter in Northeast Arkansas. Established in 1971, they're a private, non-profit organization dedicated to the welfare of all animals. NEA Humane Society is involved in a wide variety of activities and projects to serve the needs of pets and the people who care for them:
NEA Humane Society believes foster homes are the future of saving lives.
Each year, kittens and puppies are born with no one to take care of them. Most humane organizations can't take care of underage puppies and kittens because they don't have the personnel to provide individual attention for these little ones. They need people who are willing to raise these puppies and kittens until they're 8-10 weeks old when they can be returned to the shelter to be spayed or neutered and placed in permanent homes.
The more foster volunteers there are, the more deserving lives that can be saved.

Jokes aside, there are three things all shelter dogs need to thrive in their new home:
Older shelter dogs, generally 1+ years old, may have experienced a lot of trauma, which often results in one of 8 common behavioral issues:
These issues are correctable! Your dog isn't broken, they're just damaged. You can fix them with enough love, patience, and a good training plan.
