This Week’s Pet of the Month is Willow from Tennessee. Willow’s story is just one of example of why I love pet adoption and why people should always consider adopting a pet from a shelter or rescue. There are so many wonderful dogs and cats waiting for homes. You might just find your pet soul mate like Vicky B from Tennessee.
Willow was adopted by Vicky from Save The Pets Arizona in Tucson, AZ. Vicky saw a photo of the most precious pup on a friend’s Facebook page, who was fostering Willow at the time. Right away, her heart “knew she was meant for me.” At the time, Save the Pets Arizona had a no out-of-state adoption policy and she was afraid that she would not be able to adopt her.
Nevertheless, she felt that Willow was meant to be her fur baby and she contacted the rescue anyway. Her friend, who was fostering Willow and had fostered many dogs for this organization, vouched for her character. After some deliberation, Save the Pets Arizona allowed their very first out-of-state adoption and that’s how Vicky got her very first fur baby.
Vicky writes that “never before in my life had I ever had a dog, and the moment she was mine, a place in my heart blossomed and an unimaginable love exploded in my soul. Willow has been my fur baby for 6 years; I brought her home after 10 hours in the car in June of 2012. Because of her, as long as I live on this earth, I will always have a fur baby. ”
