Sprout: Still Melting Hearts

Sprout: Still Melting Hearts

By Rosemarie Savio, WHS Volunteer

Each morning, just before my alarm is set to go off, I wake to the feeling of a little wet nose breathing on my arm.  As my eyes adjust, I see his sweet face anxiously waiting to be invited onto the bed.  I let him know it’s OK, and up he jumps to snuggle right in between us.  Before Sprout came along, I dreaded the morning alarm. Now, waking up to him snoozing beside me is one of my favorite moments of the day!

Trunks Needs your Help!

Trunks Needs your Help!

Trunks was found wandering the streets by a Good Samaritan who brought him to the WHS adoption center in February. He immediately won the hearts of staff and volunteers. This 8-month-old Staffordshire Terrier mix is gentle and sweet, and his #1 priority is snuggling. Because he has some joint and skin issues, Trunks was placed in foster care. His foster parent loves him, but the stairs he needs to climb multiple times a day are proving too much for his joints. So, we are looking to our community to help by giving Trunks a new foster home, or even better, his forever home.
