Our pets are our best friends, there’s no doubt about that. There’s nothing like having a pet by our side, especially during the challenging times we’re in.

Devyn says when she met Jay, he was pretty sick and needed a loving forever home as he worked to get back to full health, so that’s exactly what she gave him.
