Sweet Dulce was just a year old when she arrived to HSHA. Her owner had been evicted from their apartment and left without taking this precious girl along. Instead, the landlord of the property surrendered Dulce which ended up being in the best interest of this buff colored beauty. In just three short months this girl attracted a new owner willing to give her a home of her own. Recently, Dulce’s owner sent in an update about her transition from the shelter to her comfortable FURever home!

“I wanted to let you all know that this sweet little girl is doing great so far!  We have renamed her Zoe as it better represents her spunky personality. She loves her little furry mice toys, which she carries around in her mouth!  She is hilarious!  Zoe has fit into our home well. It’s like she's been here all along. The Staff at HSHA did a great job of helping her little personality develop. My husband Dave and I are very thankful we could give her a home. Thanks so much everyone's help. I will continue to send updates and pictures. Take good care!”
