Grab a tissue box, and then proceed.

Stories like this are why I am such an advocate for animal adoption. They make my heart smile, and my eyes fill with happy tears. Please accept my apology in advance if this makes you cry too.

I believe Prinny may just have her very own guardian angel looking over her. What a lucky lady!

If you are ready to open your heart and home to an animal in need, please check out the Winnebago County Animal Services website, or any of our other amazing local animal rescues. Your next true love could be just a click, call, or car ride away, and they are waiting for you. My fur babies, Brooks and Urban, totally agree!
