Even though I was just one of almost 200 animals that got their happy ending in August, I think mine is extra special. My name is Angel and I am very proud to say that I got adopted after spending 190 days at the shelter! For more than six months I had been passed by, until one day Jane came in to take a look. I made my way over to introduce myself and that's all it took. After spending a few minutes with me, she asked what my story was, upon hearing it she decided right then and there that it was my turn to go home! Now I spend my days being eternally grateful and hanging out with my new friend, Fuzz. The coolest thing about my new home is that there was already an angel living there. The lady that gave me my second chance at life.
