I worked at Pets In Need animal shelter in Redwood City as an animal behaviorist and when I had to move to the East Bay I was really sad and knew I could no longer commute to Redwood City. When I moved here I wanted to be active in our local shelters. I decided to foster with Hopalong. I ended up fostering this terrier mix named Cher in 2005, and at the time she was six months old. My wife and I had her for about a month, and when it came time to showing her to the public and trying to adopt her out, my wife fell in love with her and we decided to keep her. It's been about five years now and she is the best dog. She's healthy, fun, and very loving!! Thanks Hopalong for giving us a gift!!
