My tenant called today all excited because her boss offered her a full time position making a dollar more than she was before. She promised me all of her first check in 2 weeks. I hope it happens.
I also had a plan to get her some rental help but now I don't know if it will work. A friend of mine who also has rental property, told me that his county has a rental assistance program that some of his tenants are using. I looked it up online and my county also has an emergency assistance program for those who are in danger of eviction. I told my tenant my idea and then brought an eviction notice to her so that she could file for assistance. Today she told me that the lady in charge said there was a month-long waiting list. I said to tell them that her landlord will give her an extension. If she can get even one month's rent then she will have a much easier time catching up on the back rent that she owes me. I hope it works out.
I brought my new foster dog to work with me today because I am supposed to keep him separate from my dogs until I am sure he is not coming down with anything. Everyone liked him and said he could be our "office dog". Of course the boss is not here right now. He would not approve.
There are already 4 people interested in adopting this little guy. I would love it if someone would foster-to-adopt this weekend. That way he will never have to meet my mean Toto dog. They foster-to-adopt when the animal isn't spayed or neutered because we aren't allowed to adopt out un-altered animals. It is funny that 4 people want him now that he is out of the pound. People are reluctant to go there for many reasons, too sad, to noisy and smelly. And they don't want to adopt a dog without knowing its temperament. I am glad that I can be the in-between person to give the dogs a second chance.
