Some of Nancy Annaromao’s happiest memories come from the day she adopted Rudy the dog.
Some of Teri Bittner’s happiest memories come from the day Socrates the cat adopted her.
Animal lovers who bring a pet home from a local animal shelter find it’s a win-win situation: A stray or surrendered pet gets a new home, and a human gets a new best buddy.
Said Annaromao: “The memory that most strikes me of the day we adopted Rudy from the Wisconsin Humane Society was my sitting on the bench in front of his room and feeling sad because people were passing him by, but hoping they would keep walking because I wanted him. He’s so soulful and happy and generous with his love. We adore him.”
Bittner was delighted to have Socrates take charge during their introduction at the humane society.
