Annie is proof that adopting a pet can change a life!
She had been surrendered to Philadelphia’s animal control facility because her owners were moving and was taken into safety by PAWS. We matched her with Bill, a Marine who was looking for a dog to be his companion. As an Iraq war veteran, Bill was bravely working through PTSD and facing a difficult transition back to civilian life.
Annie now accompanies Bill wherever he goes, providing emotional support and companionship. He says, “She’s the new love of my life.”
