Twenty five years ago our beloved Founder, Jennie, walked into a care center and our Legacy began. Through God's grace many followed in her paw prints and we proudly CELEBRATE our 25th year of Volunteer Excellence in 2018. There are not enough words to thank all those who have made this possible. To all of our outstanding Members and friends throughout these 25 years we cannot thank you enough.
