Meet Sweetie, our Success Story!


“This is Sweetie, formerly Lucy, who I adopted in December. She is my constant friend and companion and I couldn’t imagine a day without her. I may have adopted her but I think she saved me! Thank you for my special friend.” - Kari Hale Casady

Meet our two honorable mentions, Mattie and Pork Chop!


“For Mattie’s (Dolly) cover photo entry I chose to do a collage that tells her story. It starts with the first picture I ever saw of her on Facebook. I instantly fell in love. There’s a photo from when we had to visit her because we couldn’t bring her home yet and there’s ones of her new life and with her new brother/friend. She’s so healthy! Her fur is completely back and is full! I know some people were probably afraid to take in a dog with health issues and really I had my concerns too, but it was one of the best things we’ve ever done. She has the sweetest personality and loves cuddling and playing.Thank you NNHS for making our family complete and blessing our lives!” - Sara Carmean


“Meet Pork Chop. He was adopted in February. I love when he cuddles and he will even crawl under blankets to cuddle with me. He has so much energy for such a small dog and he loves to play fetch with his favorite bone. Pork Chop gets along great with his two brothers Coco (dog) and Max (cat). He is a wonderful addition to our family.’ - Rebekah Adamek
