Grateful adopter helps pay it forward

pay it forward cat adoptionWe hear from many of our adopters that their pet changed their life—that their new companion helped fill a void, brighten their days or bring new energy to their home. For one very kind donor in particular, the cat she adopted from our shelter inspired her to “pay it forward” for hundreds of other hopeful cats and adopters at the Dumb Friends League.

Happy Tales

Good thing his name wasn’t Sydney!

Juneau in the wild!Juneau entered our lives seven years ago to the day. Upon his adoption, we had no idea of the tremendous impact he would have on our lives.

We went to the Dumb Friends League one day to look at dogs. My (now) husband had always wanted a husky, and so our search began. We saw Juneau and read that he was a “special-needs dog.” Well, I’m a sucker for the dogs that need an extra spoonful of lovin’, and so we had to meet Juneau. His special need was that he had a fresh wound (now scar) on his face from another dog. He really just didn’t want you to touch his face, but was game for a belly rub.
