“I lost my sister on Christmas day in 2018, seven months later my sweet cockapoo passed away. So much pain and sorrow, it was difficult to see the joy in tomorrow. ARF posted pictures of puppies on their website. I knew when I saw her my heart filled with delight. We named her Pearl after my sister who passed, now I know the sorrow wouldn’t last. Every day I’m reminded how special animals can be, to help us through those difficult times it seems. Thank you ARF for rescuing our four-legged friends, you’re truly a legacy that will never end.“
