Happy Tail!

"Remember Shenzi the special needs dog? My wife and I adopted her on October 20, 2014. We renamed her “Sookie”. You all seemed to care about her well-being very much and were instrumental in her survival. We wanted to let you know that she is doing GREAT and she is very happy. We worked with a local vet to get her healthy again. She has gained some weight and is growing her fur back. Thank you all so much for the work you do. You’re all amazing people! We have attached a photo from the day we picked her up from the Humane Society and another photo that was taken of her today. Kind regards, George and Brandy"
