On September 22, 2018, I fell in love with the most amazing dog. After graduating from college, I decided it was time to get a dog. After lots of searching, finally, this little poodle mix named Shiro popped up on Petfinder. I knew immediately that was my guy.

When I got into the shelter, we were led into a private room to meet him. He was so scared when he came in. Without a second thought, I brought him home, and thus, Hamlet became apart of my family. His first year was difficult. But even through all of the scary hard times, he was the sweetest, most loving, goofiest dog. 

Over two years after we have had him, he is still all of those things and more. Now, he loves walks, cuddling, sniffing outside, peanut butter and sweet treats, and running in any stretch of open land. Our family feels so complete with him here. Thank you to the Plano Animal Shelter for helping me find my baby and taking care of him until I could get there! Your work has changed not only his life but mine.

Marley & Minerva

I adopted both of my cats from the Plano Animal Shelter. My first was (Laverne or Shirley) back in 2007, who has long since been renamed Marley. Back in 2018, I adopted a pet just for her who went by the name Meowzy Cyrus -- now Minerva. To say the least, they have both bonded and are spoiled rotten, but it brings me joy that both my babies were found here and are still alive and well. :)

KitKat & Goldentooth

Both of my daughters wanted cats, at least one of which had to be an orange tabby. We saw Hudson and Whitten (now KitKat and Goldentooth) and fell in love with them. Not wanting to separate them we took both of the boys home. They are now two happy kitties. Goldentooth likes to waltz around the house with a toy mouse in his mouth and KitKat is a total lover.
