Great Adoption Update...
After losing our 20 year old Siamese cat, our family didn't think we could ever love another pet again. One trip to Petco later and we had seen 2 young cats who although unrelated, acted as if they were meant to be together forever. They had been saved from certain doom together. They brought comfort to one another during what must have been a harrowing life experience. Who were we to pull them apart? In a flash, Thomas and Tucker were adopted into our family and their names became Dr. Norbert and Sir Percival respectively. That same day at Petco, there were also some puppies running around in a small enclosure. I snapped a quick picture of a blonde terrier mix named Patch. My husband and son insisted on adopting him too and a few days later, his name became Porthos. As it turns out, not only were we able to love another furry friend after our recent loss, we were drawn to rebuild our family and we added 3! Save Ohio Strays has helped us to heal our hearts. They also helped us to give love and shelter to animals in need and most importantly, they helped to bring together a very happy family. Many thanks to all of you who give your time to this wonderful charitable organization.
