The latest on Paisley!

Remember adorable Paisley who arrived at the shelter in terrible condition earlier this year? She was emaciated, but her hair was so long and matted that it was difficult to tell how extremely thin she was before her grooming.

After some incredible care by our veterinarians and then several weeks in a loving foster home, Paisley was ready to be adopted. Her new mom says that her granddaughter and Paisley have been fast friends since day one. Check out the adorable video of her playing in her backyard. Thank you to all who support us so we can give these sick and injured shelter dogs the second chance they deserve.
