Who will choose you?

who will choose you?Sometimes, our pets have a way of choosing us rather than the other way around. It’s a common belief that we hear from a great many adopters who have visited our shelters. A longing look into your eyes…a tiny paw up on the kennel glass…an incessantly wagging tail that makes you smile—while that special connection may come in many different forms, our adopters agree when they tell us, “My pet chose me.”

Maya: a great trade-off

MayaWe happened upon the Furry Scurry because Saturdays are our running days. When we got to the park, I assumed that a dog “race” would probably have an adoption event as well—and sure enough, there was Maya! My partner instantly bonded with Maya, and we pretty much decided that we had to have her. So we went to Wash Park for a three-mile run and left with Maya, which was a great trade-off!

Maya is doing very well and already warming up to us. She is quite the cuddle bug and is getting along with everyone (our friends and their dogs) and our cat. I dropped her off at a friend’s house while I went to an appointment, and when I went to pick her up, she was SO excited: tail wagging, jumped on me and couldn’t stop prancing. My heart melted! She’s a doll and we love her.
