  • Yes we adopted out dog Molly from the shelter almost 2 years ago and we love her. She is the best dog ever!

  • I've adopted a dog and two cats. Love(d) them all (one of the cats died from liver cancer). They've all been wonderful pets.

  • We just adopted a dog in February. He's great! We all love him and he's now an official member of this family. So happy we did it. Minus the chewing, of course ;)

  • We adopted a ferret who later developed cancer and passed away, but he was such a sweet addition to our family while he was around!

  • I have a few times but to be honest most of mine have come to me through work (vet clinic) or they have practically shown up at my door.

  • We had 5 dogs until we lost one in a fire in Jan. and 2 came from a shelter, 2 were adopted from people who were going to them to the shelter and 1 was a stray hubby found on his mail route (we put up signs, called the proper people and no one contacted us). Before these 5, when we had dogs in TX, they were all dogs who were re-homed for whatever reasons by their previous humans. I have also been the go to person for a guinea pig rescue and for a hedgehog rescue and all of my guinea pigs & hedgehogs were rescues.
