After an extremely rough year of my life, a therapist suggested I adopt a pet. I grew up with dogs and cats when I was young, and decided to check out the local shelters to find the right one. I ended up choosing to adopt form the ARL because I could tell from the moment I walked in the staff truly cared for the animals and took care of them. I adopted my dog last year, she had some issues because she had been previously abandoned, and the staff was helpful in explaining her conditions and giving me suggestions on how to correctly care for her and work through her issues. After hearing Corkie (my dog's) story, and meeting her in a 'hug room' I knew she was the right one for me. We both had issues to work through, and it was finally time we had someone to work with us and love us through the hard times. Today both my dog and I are better than ever and loving life. I wouldn't have found my best friend who has helped me through one of the worst times in my life without the ARL. She is truly part of the family. As a recent college graduate money is tight, but I decided to become a donor because the ARL is an amazing place that deserves our support. Without them, many animals would never have a chance. I'm thankful every morning for the wonderful people at the ARL who introduced me to my 'fur-child!'
