We adopted Marshall, formally known as Max in November of 2015. I first met him at FVHA in October, little did I know the first time I laid eyes on him that he was going to be the dog to mend my broken heart. My fiance and I experienced a tremendous loss in 2015, when we unexpectedly had to put two of our three beloved dogs to sleep in less than a months time. We knew that when the time was right, we would adopt again, and it would of course be from FVHA. Marshall has brought life and light back into both of our lives, as well as his new canine sister Sophie, who was also mourning the loss of her two pals she had grown to know and love for the past 4 years.

If you have never adopted, I strongly urge you to do so. Is it hard to lose your dogs as they grow old, absolutely, but all of the wonderful memories you make with them each day and knowing that you gave them a second chance at life greatly outweighs anything else. Thank you FVHA for helping this dog find his way “home”. ~Amy, Dan and Sophie
