1. Po Larson
This is Po. She joined a family that already had 14 human children because one of the daughters decided to volunteer with the Animal Rescue Foundation of Illinois. What a big family to give a lot of love!
Enzo only has three legs, but he doesn’t let that stop him from enjoying life! His owner, Anastasia, thought he might have trouble getting around her 3-level townhouse, but it turns out he’s amazing at climbing stairs and running around the whole place.
Miracle was found on the side of the road - “one of her eyes was out of socket, she had multiple skull fractures and brain damage.” Luckily, the Forman family found her and brought her back to health. She was their 39th foster pet, and Miracle is now a certified therapy dog!
Zoe and Lori first met at a PetSmart Charities adoption center and bonded right away - both of them are breast cancer survivors! These two share a very unique bond and are so thankful to have each other.
Dottie is a deaf pit bull/Dalmatian mix who was about to be put down when Cynthia, an SPCA volunteer with Addison’s disease decided to overlook her flaws. She was able to teach her sign language commands for “sit,” “down,” “shake,” and “high five.” Anything is possible!
This little dog, Joy, was able to bring U.S. Navy veteran Sherrie comfort from her post-traumatic stress disorder. “Joy came out of her cage and put her paws around my neck,” said Sherrie. “I fell in love right then and there.”
A tiny orange kitten reached out and clawed Nicole, a cashier at a PetSmart store. Even though he ripped her shirt, they made an instant connection. “People tell me that I did a great deed by rescuing my cat, but the truth is that he rescued me,” said Nicole. “Every person should know what a home feels like completed with the love of a pet.”
Winnie is one of 13 dogs who were rescued from a pretty dangerous situation. At an adoption fair, Winnie placed a big, ol’ sloppy kiss on Shari’s cheek. It was love at first sight!
Onyx had to be majorly cleaned by the shelter, and she was also getting to be kind of old to be on the adoption floor. That seemed like a lot of odds being stacked against her. Luckily, Phyllis, who had been keeping track of Onyx’s progress on the adoption website, snatched her up to bring her home to her 7-year-old dog at home. They all loved each other!
Poor Lucy, a Cocker Spaniel and poodle mix, was rescued from a terrible puppy mill situation in South Carolina by her owner, Casey. Lucy is still working with a trainer to learn how to be a dog. “For a dog that’s been used to laying in her own urine and feces all day, Lucy has been amazing with housebreaking,” said Casey.
Zoey is only 12-years-old, but she’s a dedicated volunteer for the All Herding Breed Dog Rescue group. Rex has a bad leg, but Zoey is working toward fully rehabilitating it. Rex loves running through Zoey’s big backyard, and he even tries to herd their horses! All the exercise and love is really helping him recover.
