Jake had no idea about the adventures he was about to embark upon with our family when we met him for the first time and fell helplessly in love with him at the HSU. We lived with Jake in Utah for approximately 6 months before finding out we had an opportunity to live in Canada. As he had become a very loved and important member of our family we did not hesitate to include him in our big move. We drove all the way from Utah to Canada with Jake and discovered how much he enjoys long distance driving.

After a long search for a family dog, I happened upon Cookie during a Petco adoption. The staff were great and patient with me and my kids. Cookie has adjusted very well and adores the kids and sleeps with them every night. She has been a great running, biking, hiking and skiing partner for me, and man is she fast!!! I look forward to many happy years with Cookie. Thank you for making our adoption easy. We are thrilled with our newest addition to the family.

KENAI has become my sweet lovable baby who snuggles with me all the time and is a part of the family. My kids and hubby love him to death and he is well on his way to becoming a great service dog for me. He no longer has anxiety and stays close to home when let out. He is learning to socialize with other dogs without being scared and is good about letting strangers pet him without being afraid as long as I'm near. He alerts me when I'm sleeping to noises and has gained weight like a champ. He plays with toys and bounces through the house happy with his tail waving like a banner.
