hills van pull up and we know we’ve got all our food for the week at a really low price we’re able to now have those funds go to other programs such as our dog play groups for instance play groups allows for their dogs to be able to just be dogs and interact the socialize this helps us because we get able to tell adopters how animals behave at dog park environments so adopters get to see their true selves the people that come to ACC and our first-time adopter adoption counselors spend a lot of time getting to know the animal have available for adoption the right fit for the you’re making a family when we see that often happens it really just warms our heart because we all knew we made a difference in the animals life we send them home with some hills pet so that the transition is easier they’re getting kills in the shelter and they’re getting kills at home and it’s a good way to reinforce the idea that the quality pet food tell your friends to adopt and always choose adoption first
