My family has adopted two dogs and a cat from the Columbus Dog Connection. I feel really fortunate to have these pets in my life and wouldn't if it hadn't been for CDC. My mom and sister went out looking for a dog a couple months after our dog passed away at 18 years of age. They came home from the shelter with a cute little puppy. After a couple of weeks they decided to get another dog, because they thought the puppy needed a playmate. They went to a Mingle with the Mutts event and saw a woman with a baby sling, but no baby. There were two pointy ears sticking out of the sling. As they got closer they to the woman there was a tiny little puppy with big pointy ears sitting in the sling. He had been through an ordeal being rescued in the middle of the night in a puppy mill raid and the vet said he wouldn't live through the night. Myrna wouldn't give up on him and she nursed him back to health. My mom and sister applied for adoption and went through an interview process. We were very lucky and thankful that we got to adopt Quamie. They had already had several attempts to adopt him by dog fighters looking for bait dogs. Luckily CDC does their homework. Myrna checked in with them periodically to make sure everything was going well. My mom and sister came to see me in college and when I saw Quamie it was love at first sight. He hasn't left my side since that day. Seven years later he has as much energy as he did the first day I met him. He is always at the front door when I get home jumping up and down and letting out happy high pitch squeels. He is a great cuddler, very affectionate, and loves to play. I feel very fortunate to have him in my life and can't thank the Columbus Dog Connection enough for what they do. The Columbus Dog Connection is very commited to the well being of animals and their humans. They take great care in adopting out their cats and dogs and their volunteers/foster families are true angels.
