Happy Gotcha Day, Ruby!

We brought Ruby home a year ago today. You can read more about her rescue and adoption here …


At Animal Care and Control after being removed from her former home by the police for severe neglect.


First Christmas with us …still scared.


Starting to feel more comfortable.


Snow is fun.


Having a home is fun.


Couches (and cheeseburgers) are even more fun.


What a difference a year makes …


Save a life - adopt an adult or older dog or cat from your local shelter today!
