Jemma with her new dad!!

For those of you that are familiar with Jemma, she had been searching for the perfect home for nearly 900 days. We have some fantastic news: after multiple visits, walks, a home check, and basically ensuring he knew exactly what he was getting into, Jemma went home with her new dad!! Here at the SPCA, we have become totally attached and invested in Jemma’s well-being, so a staff member bought her some treats from local pet specialty store, Bark Harbor, to send home, and we celebrated with a cookie. This is a video compilation of Jemma’s last day at the shelter as she went home with her new dad. We wish Jemma the absolute BEST and truly, totally hope this is the perfect home for her!!
