By rescuing a cat or dog (or hamster or fish or bunny) you are giving them a second life. All of the animals that come into the WHS adoption centers come with a story; some of them are found as strays, some of them have to be taken from poor living conditions, and some are abandoned, kind of like Vintage here. Regardless of who you ultimately end up adopting, you are helping to turn their life around.
Vintage was being boarded through our Pets at Home program, and was excited for his owner to pick him up and take him back home. She never came. Vintage was ultimately turned over to WHS. He had a hard time transitioning from living in a home to living with a bunch of other animals at our New York Avenue Adoption Center. Thanks to our adoptions team, Vintage was able to keep his cool and ended up being fostered by a WHS staff member. She gave him that little something extra he needed to shine, and he eventually found his forever home!
