The Shelter Pet Project




Michelle Atnip

Why Chief is so special:

Chief was placed in the shelter when he was just three months old. My husband and I adopted him when he was six months old. We chose to adopt an animal when we found out that my husband was deploying, and he has turned into my best friend. At first, he was very shy and timid, but we could tell that he was very smart and would only have to be told once to stop doing something. Quickly we learned that he has such a loving heart that shows in everything he does. I could not ask for a better friend.

If your pet could talk, what would he or she tell us about you?:

Chief would say that I love to snuggle and take pictures of him.
