Little Deedee the senior beagle came to the shelter as a stray a couple of months ago. Shelter staff were able to locate her family, however, they never came in to claim her. Upon vet examination, it was discovered that Deedee had a small wound that had to heal before she could be scheduled for spay surgery and the removal of a small growth on her underbelly.
While waiting for this to happen, Mr. Hatch came to the shelter and fell in love! He waited patiently for her to heal up, have her surgery, and receive a clean bill of health! Mr. Hatch visited her several times a week, and her staff and volunteer friends could not have been happier to see them finally get to go home together. Congratulations, Deedee, you finally have the home you deserve!
