With the help of his friends and relations, these acts of animal kindness took on their own momentum. Whenever Foster went away on business, people donated toys for him to give to the shelters. In time, he had social media followers sending gifts to take, too.
The upshot was that Foster had enough regular donations to form a charity called Play for Strays. And after many months of hard work combined with shelter visits, the animal-lover decided to take a well-earned break. His holiday of choice was a relaxing cruise up the Amazon in Brazil.
The dream vacation took Foster to some isolated places, a big change from the hustle and bustle of his normal routine. “When we stopped at this random island, the plan was to go swimming and snorkeling, then have a lunch,” he told iHeartDogs. “Idyllic, really.”
