At 64, Brenda Beck is our little dog lady in Pontchatoula, La. She was born in Cleveland, MS.and moved to New Orleans in 1964. Brenda worked as an ER nurse at St. Jude Medical center and St. Charles Parish Hospital until 2014. Her daughter Jennifer. and two awesome grandchildren, Aubree (6) and Brooks (almost 2) now keep her busy most days, but finds her passion in fostering homeless animals.

Brenda's love of fostering has been a lifetime in the making. After Katrina, Brenda started volunteering at the St Charles Parish Animal Control. She did anything from cleaning cages to doing adoption events.

Brenda pets have included Bailey, a Shih Tzu, she lost to renal failure. Brenda thought her heart could not love another pet as much as Bailey, but while fostering, Regan, a Pit from Tangipahoa Humane Society, she fell in love once more. "Reagan is the best baby, She accepts all of my fosters with a loving heart".

After a short break from fostering to care for her ailing mother,she decided to start fostering again. And Bluetails was lucky enough to gain a new friend in the rescue community. "I have fostered for several groups, but I love Bluetails the best because they do everything they can to support their fosters. They provide heart-worm preventative or other RX's, food, flea prevention, and bring you dogs that are appropriate.  Courtney takes my energy level, other pets,etc. into account before bringing me a foster. My favorite has been Henry who was adopted by the most awesome family. My second favorite is Teddy."
