Holly was adopted!

Update March 2015:

Dear Ginny, 
It took a snowstorm to make me sit down and write you a thank you note and and update. 

Her name was Holly, but now she is Mai (May).  There are no words that can tell you how wonderful and sweet this silly dog is . She has a lot to learn about confidence, but she is smart and picks up things right away. 

My decision to get another dog was due to the passing of my cat, Ruby Tuna Breath.  My dear Callie, who is also a graduate of Paws for Life, was besides herself with grief and it was clear that she was not happy being alone.  I looked  at your website and in the list of dogs for adoption, I saw kind eyes and a soft black face coming off of the screen and there was no question that she was the dog for the job. 

Fast forward, Callie is much happier now and looks to me for help when Mai gets to playing too rough, but for the most part, we are once again a very happy family. 

I love this cuddly sweet little dog and it always leaves me to wonder that this dear kind hearted dog, like so many others was left to find her own way in the world until Ginny saved her.  I hate to think what would have happened and i can’t imagine my life now without my Callie and my Mail. 

 I am so grateful to you for the work you do so that my home can be filled with dog hair and love.  As I always say— Ginny, this is all your fault. 

Best Wishes,
