A service dog for Christmas: How Sheeba and Brianna found each other
Sheeba needed a home. Brianna needed a friend to help her cope.
When Sheeba rushed to Brianna’s aid when the young woman was suffering from a panic attack, Brianna knew her new best friend was also her protector. After going through training to hone her instincts, Sheeba is now Brianna’s service dog.
Sheeba was transported from a remote Northern community to find a new home in Central Ontario, where there is a greater demand for adoptable pets. A lack of basic animal wellness services, such as veterinarians and spay/neuter services, has led to uncontrolled growth of dog populations across Northern Canada.
Thanks to your support, dogs like Sheeba will spend the holidays, warm and comfortable, with a family to call their own. But adoption changes the lives of animals and people. Her happy story – and many more like it – was made possible through community support, partners, tireless volunteers, dedicated staff and generous donors.
“I am so grateful for programs like this,” says Brianna. “Because without them, I would not have my life saver here. She truly has, and is, saving my life every day.”
From our family to yours, have a happy holiday season!
