August 13, 2014

The Heartwarming Adoption of a Dog Named “No Name”

December 14, 2013

From BeHumane.Org:

Victoria Stilwell here—wishing you a happy holiday season and sharing a wonderful story to warm your heart!

As you know, when American Humane Association’s Red Star team rushes to the scene of a natural disaster or other emergency, our #1 goal is to rescue lost pets, keep them safe, and reunite them with the families that have lost them. We do all this thanks to your caring support!
