By the time I arrived at APSFH, I had lived on the streets of Mexico most of my life, given birth to several litters of pups and was in ruff shape.

My teeth were worn down from eating rocks and my joints were riddled with arthritis from years of standing and walking on cement. The staff and volunteers immediately fell in love with my sweet, gentle nature. I asked for nothing more than love and a soft bed to sleep in. Then a wonderful couple from Gig Harbor saw my profile on Petfinder and drove all the way to Friday Harbor to meet me. I have special needs which didn’t deter them from falling in love and adopting me that same day. My worries are over now. I am finally a cherished family member for the first time in my life.

Thank you APSFH – your family, friends and team are a powerful force.
