Whiskey's happy ending!


Today we pay tribute to an SPCA of TC alumni, Whiskey, and his caretaker, Kristen, who adopted him as a senior pet with health issues 1 1/2 years ago. He had the best retirement days any dog -- or person -- could ask for. Kristen is a veterinary student and sent us these pics and words celebrating his life.
"I just want to thank you for all that you did to bring us together. He was a very snuggly and affectionate dog with a huge silly personality. There have been so many days when coming home to him cheered me up like nothing else could. He made my home feel safe and taking care of him was the best learning experience (I mean really- how many things can happen to one dog??). In just the year and a half we had together, he became my family and one of my best friends. I don't know what I would have done without my homely little Eeyore heart emoticon. "
Thank you Kristen, for loving him as you did.{back}
