Happy tails from Corrina Lou!

We just love getting updates on our Friends of the Shelter pups. Corrina Lou was helped by Friends of the Shelter four years ago when she arrived at the shelter with heartworm disease. Her awesome dads fostered her through her painful treatment for the disease. She made it successfully through the treatment, and then her dads adopted her. Last year, Corrina Lou got an adopted sister, Blossom, and we were so happy to hear that they’re getting along wonderfully! Check out this adorable video of them playing! Thank you for helping Friends of the Shelter give dogs like Corrina Lou a second chance to be in a loving home!
