Allison Stethers - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Missions of Mercy, Hanover, PA.

I began looking for a dog to live with me during my time in vet school and came across Finn, previously known as Cramer. He had been hit by a car and was left behind by those that hit him. He was saved by some good Samaritans, and the veterinarian they brought him to saved his life. Unfortunately, he lost one of his back legs in the process. For the time being, he lived with the veterinarian in order to recover. During this, Melissa from Missions of Mercy contacted the veterinarian and volunteered to take him into her rescue. Thanks to her, I came across Finn on Petfinder, and she gave me all of the information she had on him at the time. As soon as I knew that I wanted to adopt him and I was approved, Melissa had Finn transported to her so I could pick him up. She had everything ready, and I took home my new best friend! Finn is always by my side, and I look forward to spending the rest of his life with him. Without Missions of Mercy and Melissa, I would not have found my best friend to go to vet school with me!
