Miss Piggy — Emerging Hero

Charity Partner: Pets for Patriots
Location: Ballwin, Missouri

I got Miss Piggy from a shelter when she was four months old. I got her because I was struggling with my addiction and depression and at the time I though getting a dog would make all my problems go away. Of course they didn’t they just got worse one month after getting Miss Piggy I hit bottom with my addiction and I thought taking my life was the only option I had left. If it wasn’t for Miss Piggy I wouldn’t had picked up the phone and got the help I needed at a treatment center. I had a gun in my hand ready to pull the trigger telling myself just do it, you been talking about it for a long time and everyone will be better off without you. Miss Piggy came up to me and started licking my face and I looked her in the eye and saw unconditional love and knew I wanted to live. I am 7 months clean and sober and living my life I couldn’t be happier and Miss piggy hasn’t left my side everyday she reminds me that life is to precious not to live everyday happy and free.
