The Shelter Pet Project

Why Theodore is so special:

Theo is a kind soul who lost his way and ended up in the shelter. No one looked for him. I saw his ad on the website and knew he needed to be a part of my family. He now lives with us and our 2 cats. He is such a gentle giant who just wants his ears rubbed. He is currently attending classes to become a therapy dog so he can give forward, because he was given a chance and now wants to give his love to others.

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

I would say thank you for the lady who came to the shelter and asked to take me for a walk. On our walk she asked if I could love a family of humans and cats. If I could play in the yard and go on hikes. I looked at her and with my eyes I told her yes. She then went to the desk and said I want to take him home and I am going to name him Theodore. I could not believe I was in her car and started to live the life I knew I should have. Thanks Mom. Xoxo
