Nicki Clawson volunteers as a foster mom for homeless dogs through NorthWest Boxer Rescue. One dog that she was fostering, named Cookie, made a big imprint on Nicki’s heart. Nicki fell in love with the sweet Boxer and really enjoyed fostering her.
Staff at NorthWest Boxer Rescue knew that Nicki was a perfect fit for Cookie. Instead of adopting her out to a new home, they really wanted her to stay with Nicki. But they decided to break this news to her in heartwarming fashion.
They decided to make the adoption a surprise, with the help of Area Coordinator Jessica, and Nicki’s husband, Tim. They told Nicki that Cookie had a meet-and-greet with a potential adopter. Nicki then brought Cookie to “meet” them, but of course they didn’t show up.
Nicki was extremely disappointed, but was told to call the person to see if they were coming. When she looked at the paper and saw her own phone number as the adopter, she was initially confused. When she realized what they did, she broke down in tears.
