We would love to hear from you!

Friday, September 4, 2020, will be a decade since I adopted “Cooper” from McCook Humane Society. He has brought such joy into my life over the past ten years. He helped me heal from my prior dog’s passing, and was renamed “Apollo” to emphasize the spirit of the Greek god of healing. He has been with me through ups and downs, always patient and full of snuggles. Thank you McCook Humane Society for matching us to our forever family.

Mary's family requested a very special wish in memory of her. Donations made in her memory will go towards the Spay and Neuter memorial fund to help keep that fund going. A very special thanks to all of our sponsors for their continuing support.
