“I volunteer at the CACC (Care for Animal Control Center) and Melons was set to be euthanized.
He was almost 4 and had kennel cough.
I had him pulled from the euth list and agreed to foster him–that was 6 months ago.
I pretty much knew from the first day that I would keep him.
I didn’t make it official until I had him for 4 months.
I also volunteer with Best Friends Animal Society and they were having a pop up adoption event where I was working.
I saw that the CACC had an adoption van parked nearby and went out to say, hello.
One of the adoption counselors had Izzy in her lap. She looked exactly like Hero and was incredibly sweet.
I finished working the Best Friend’s event and went home with Izzy.”
