"Penny recently came into my life via the Irving City Animal Shelter. (Please excuse her funnel head, she was in surgery being spayed and having a tumor removed).

"This 10-year-old baby girl is an AMAZING addition to my little family. Another person's loss has definitely been my gain!

"A little shy at first, it's now been a week and she hangs with her sister, little baby also adopted, and I got my first kiss today!

"Facebook networking WORKS! My friend who lives in Houston tagged me in her picture since she was in Irving, and I headed up there with my sister-in-law who rescued a dog as well! Two adoptions because of sharing on Facebook! Not only that, I've been sharing adoptable pets in return and someone went up there today.

"I love the helpful staff who genuinely cared and I am so grateful for Penny!"

Irving Animal Services works with the animal welfare community to place Irving Animal Care Campus animals into loving homes.
