One day a beautiful German Shepherd dog thought she was going for her usual ride in the family car. Little did she know that she would soon be abandoned in a strange neighborhood. Luckily, a new family rescued her. After a while, it was hard to tell who rescued whom. Not only did Sheena become a beloved family pet, but she trained with her human partner to become an extraordinary therapy team that brought joy to the lives of many. Follow Sheena on her journey from being a homeless animal to becoming an important family and community member.
Sheena’s story shows how devoting a family’s resources to caring for a homeless animal sends a clear message to our children——“We are a family that uses the power of choice to save a life.”
