"We adopted Nala (formerly Nana) in December 2014. She came off the plane at three months from the Dominican Republic, and we realized right there in the middle of the airport that we were definitely not going to be able to let her join anyone else’s family but our own. Fostering for and adopting through SOS was one of the best decisions we ever made. We always felt supported and like we had a community to turn to if we needed anything. Nala has since made a pretty epic move to the Northwest Territories and is officially a winter dog now. Adopting a rescue isn’t always easy, but it is definitely always worth it!"
