I walked into the SPCA in 2009..........because friends told me I needed a new pet since mine had to be "put down" a few years before. I was not interested in the doggie they sent me to see, but fell in love with a little "ugly" poodle mix that was just sitting in the corner. I took her into the room to get acquainted....and immediately she jumped into my daughter's lap.........my daughter was in a wheel chair. I was in love! We went back the next day to see how she handled the walker.......and she had no problem and didn't even attempt to jump when the walker was used. Sandy (her new name) came home with us a few days later. We have now adopted both Sandy (poodle mix) and Bella (chihuahua mix). They are wonderful and bring lots of joy to my daughter and myself. I also have taken in 2 "barn cats"........so there is never a dull moment. I also met some of the most amazing people...........who have taken me in not caring about drama that happens to be in my life at this time. The other volunteers there know us...........and are used to dealing with getting around my daughter's wheelchair. It amazes me how the volunteers & employees go above and beyond what is expected in caring for the animals.
