orange pinMarch 30, 2015 Another sucessful CNMBC Brittany Rescue stroy from Julianne L.:

Good morning Denise,

Today is the second year anniversary of my having adopted Mia, and once again I want to thank you and your colleagues for having rescued, and cared for, this lovely little girl. She is now six years old and a wonderful companion and presence in my home. While she can be excitable and always ready to run, and preferably run free, much as should, she is after all true to her breed, she is also sweet, playful, loving, reliable, and a great “house dog.”

Your work is so valuable, saving otherwise unwanted creatures, enabling dogs and folks to get together and enrich their lives.

Photos 1, 2 and 3 of Mia.
