One-year-old foster pup Mocha found a forever home this week!

We love our incredible growing team of life-saving foster volunteers!

Tom, formerly Pie
“Last summer I helped cat Pie find an adoptive family in College Park, MD. They have renamed him Tom because he looks like the 'Tom' in Tom and Jerry.  Pie quickly became friends with the couple's dog Sydney, and here are the two of them lying together on the bed.”
