With Help from Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society, Bella has a Loving Family

Hello. My name is Bella and my story starts on the streets, where I had been fending for myself for a long time. I landed at local animal control shelter at a time when they were extremely overcrowded. Luckily, Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) stepped up to save my life.

The nice people at PAWS said I stole their hearts from the moment I arrived! There were so many new people and pets to meet…but I was just relieved and happy to be there.

Not only was I no longer lost, I was also finally done with having litters! My friends at PAWS could tell I had given birth quite a few times.  It was time for me to find a home of my own.

Luckily, it was just a short time before my new family came to visit and gave me a forever home. And what a family it is! They said I made myself right at home. But to me, it just feels like I’ve always been with them.

My success story was shared with PEDIGREE Foundation to show that with support from shelters and rescues, every dog can find a loving home. Like me! My family sends their love too – they said, “Thanks again for saving her and for allowing us to open up our doors to her.”
