In the fall of 2012 our family made one of our best, and luckiest, decisions ever!!! We came to Animatch on the advice of our friend, Laurie McKay-Levac, one of your tireless volunteers, to visit a new addition to your facility. Natasha (as she was then known) had been described a shy little girl. We introduced her to our senior golden, who immediately sniffed her way to approval. It didn't take long for my husband to say, "Well, let's load her up" and home she came to the country. What a joy! What a girl! She is the most loyal and faithful companion ever! She winters on our rural property in eastern Ontario and summers at our family cottage on an island in the Seaway. She chases sticks, ducks and sometimes blowing dandilions fluff. She is our best friend, but moreover, a strong spokesperson for adoption. She is appreciative each and every moment of every day: so are we. I am so glad we found Animatch. Thank you for the wonderful work you do!
