The Shelter Pet Project




Janelle Sweden


, New Jersey


American Rescue Dog

Why Matty is so special:

Matty is my current service dog who came into my life when my older dog, also a shelter pet, needed to retire. He assisted me so that I could graduate with my bachelor's degree from Stockton University. Matty is making it possible for me to attend a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program this year. Matty is also a therapy dog through Bright & Beautiful Therapy Dogs. I'm so grateful that someone took the time to rescue him from a kill shelter. My life wouldn't be the same without him!

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

Helping my Mama navigate life is my job & I love my job! We were meant to be together.
