From Erin of Pickering, ON

Thank you very much for the role you played in getting our precious dog to us. Our black lab mix (known to you all as Darcy) came from the Ohio pound back in February of 2007 she was approximately a year old at the time. We are so grateful to all of the people who cared for her before she found her forever home with us. Everyone we meet marvels at what a well behaved cutie pie Stella is and I always tell them that she is a rescue dog from Petfinder. Stella has inspired many people to check out the website and hopefully to adopt a homeless pet. As I write this Stella is sprawled out on 'her' couch, tired after two big walks. She truly is the biggest pleasure in our lives. Her disposition is as sweet as they come and we feel so fortunate to have her. I know that Take Me Home Rescue, the vets in Ohio and her foster family all cared for her very well because she is a confident, well socialized dog. Stella loves all people, all dogs and even cats. She is so fast that people swear that she is part greyhound! We have done agility classes with her and she has even been a Therapy Dog at our local Seniors Home. Words can not express our gratitude to all of you that played a role in getting Stella to us. On behalf of Stella: thank you for your kindness.

We thank you deeply for everything you did for our Stella before she was our Stella.
