Paws Place Poster RTR 2016 – Final
As many of you know, Rick & I are passionate about doggy adoption and how it not only saves the precious lives of a dogs but it often saves human lives. At the least, an adopted pet can enrich and endear our lives!
We were blessed this April when we found and adopted Moby. He is a “Borgie:” Border Collie/Corgi mix. We love him to the moon and back. It is because of volunteers and endeavors like those of Paw’s Place that we were able to find and adopt Moby and our beloved Maggie. In their honor, we are proud to support this very worthwhile endeavor! We are also excited about the event. It sounds like a lot of fun!
