Alumni note:

One year ago, we surprised the kids and adopted this little lady from Heather’s Foster Dogs. She stepped out of the van and looked at me with her big brown eyes full of worry and I knew she was meant to be ours. She’s thriving right at home with sister Violet. Thank you all for giving her a second chance to be loved! Happy Gotcha Day, Hazel Louise! 💜🐶
