This is such a wonderful story. Reading "good news" these days is such a breath of fresh air. Emily does an incredible job as Valley Humane's Foster and Adoption Manager, and AnnMarie so beautifully expressed the feelings of everyone who fosters for Valley Humane. I am so pleased to report that my family fostered Chelsea's brother during this pandemic, and he too, got over his nervousness, his mistrust of humans, and came out of his shell during his time with us. He was recently adopted and has bonded beautifully with his Forever Mom. His Forever Name is "Archie"! (His shelter name was "Raffia").
