The 3-3-3 Rule for Adopting

2023 was a wonderful year for adoptions, with hundreds of animals finding homes and starting new lives full of love and companionship!

What most people didn’t see, was that after the hustle and bustle of shelter life settled down in the evening, Thelma was found hanging out with her favorite cat – Bandit!
