Life saver,

2014 was a horrible year for my family, I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 31 and had to under go a double mastectomy on March 14th 2014. If this wasn’t hard enough my dog “Nova” (a miniature dachshund) passed away on April 1st just weeks after my surgery. My whole family was heart broken. On July 30th 2014 I had my last chemo treatment and was feeling very depressed so the following day my husband decide to take me for a drive to the Toronto Humane Society just to look around. We ended up meeting “Antos” now known as “George”. He is the best thing that could have happened at that moment in my family’s life. I strongly believe that everything happens for a reason and “George” was meant to be a part of our family. He became available for adoption 10 minutes before we walked through the doors. I never could have imagined a dog would show such devotion for his new family. He is now the team mascot for my sons baseball team and loves all the attention.

I want to thank the Toronto Humane Society, all the staff and volunteers for all that you do for these special animals.

Forever grateful
Dana,George & family!!!!!!!
