“Peanut is a real blessing. I'm very happy that I took a chance on adopting a special needs senior Chihuahua. He's a really sweet dog and has adjusted very well, and he gets along well with Lil Missy Riverdale, another senior dog who was adopted from WHS the year before. Peanut loves the mini-rawhide chew bones and gets around well indoors and outside, despite his vision problem. He's like having a puppy around all the time.”
-Rita Pazzelli

Want to meet more great seniors like Peanut? We’re helping the “Class of 2012” graduate this weekend by offering fee-waived adoptions on all of our older and long-time pet residents! Visit our adoption centers May 18-20 to meet your new best friend!
