Fiona — Shelter

Location: Pendleton, South Carolina

This is Fiona and she is beyond deserving of this award. We adopted her on October 25, 2019. She was found as a stray in September 2019 and taken to a Humane Society in North Carolina, where Furever Angels Animal Rescue pulled her. They shared her on Facebook and when her photo popped up on my newsfeed, it was love at first sight. My husband’s dream dog was a Toy Poodle so we knew we had to meet her. We brought her home the very same day we met her. Upon arrival, she was absolutely terrified to go up/down stairs and she had NO idea what to do with toys. I sat on the stairs with her and helped her down step by step and our Jackapoo, Barkley, taught her everything she needed to know about toys. Today she bolts up and down the stairs like it’s a race and she is obsessed with toys. She’s also the best snuggle buddy in the world, which has been a blessing as I suffer with anxiety and depression. It blows my mind to think she could have ever been discarded. She constantly makes us laugh and brings so much joy to our household. Whether or not she’s chosen for this award, one thing is certain – she is home FURever with us and will never be discarded again!
