Shannon's Happy Ending



"This is my favorite photo of me and my new sister!"



“Hello to all of my good friends at HALO Animal Rescue!  My name is Shannon, and I was adopted on March 26, 2010 by the perfect family. During the whole ride home I laid on my mommy's lap and ever since then the cuddling began. They kept my name as Shannon, but nicknamed me "Nanna".


I was introduced to my sister Jasmine who at first I didn't get along with, but we are now inseparable. I like to think I am a mommy's girl, but my sister and I get spoiled to no end. I am very energetic, full of life, and I make my mommy and daddy laugh at all the crazy stuff I do. I like to chew on sticks, chase my tail, bring rocks in the house, and play with my sister. I absolutely love sleeping and cuddling in mommy and daddy's bed at night, playing ball, sharing popsicles with my mommy, and giving kisses.



Of course there are some things I'm still working on, but they are a work in progress. These include getting over my habit of chewing on things like daddy's shoes, mommy's slippers, and the new couch (this is my favorite to chew). Mommy and daddy aren't happy about it, but they are very patient while I overcome this. Plus how can they stay mad or upset with me when I do my famous sassy wag (I get so excited and my tail wags so much my whole body pretty much bends in half)?  It makes them crack up laughing. They almost changed my name to Sassy because of it!



I am now over a year old and a HUGE cuddle bug. I like to think I'm a lap dog even though I'm a BIG girl. My mommy and daddy have taught me many tricks like sit, stay, how not to jump on people when I get excited, and how to have manners. We are now hoping to master "shake."


Thank you for placing me with the perfect family, who loves me unconditionally!”

Hey you, animal lover!  Yes, you!  Aren't you running a bit low on wine?  And aren't you running extremely low on wine that raises funds to care for homeless animals?


HALO now has it's very own line of Benefit Wines.  A big chunk of the proceeds of each bottle comes back to HALO so we can save the lives of more dogs and cats.


All the wines are ORGANIC and VEGAN!  These wines aren't filtered through powdered bone.  These grapes aren't sprayed with uberchemicals.  These wines are made the way you wish they all were!


And by the way, no giving Fido a little pour into his doggie dish.  Same goes for Fluffy... you know how she gets.  You can have your Pinot all to yourself, Fido and Fluffy will stick with tuna water.  Just don't expect them to drive you home.
