From Shannon of Hampton, VA

I found Thea, my beloved doggie, on Petfinder. I had been looking for a dog to train as a Service Dog, and after reading about puppy mills, I vowed I would adopt a dog from a shelter. Well! I found Thea on Petfinder and her shelter, Animal Protection Society of Person County, NC, was wonderful! I had passed up Thea 5 times on Petfinder, but something made me look at her more closely. I am glad I did and now she is a valued and well loved friend and Service Dog in Training! Thank you Petfinder and APS of Person County, NC!
