Annie finds a loving new home through Loved for Life


This past summer a lifelong AHS supporter passed away, leaving behind her beloved Italian Greyhound Annie. As a Legacy Circle member who included AHS in her estate plans, Annie’s owner was able to enroll her 9-year-old canine companion in our Loved for Life program. This program was created to re-home pets through a personalized adoption process when a member passes away or can no longer care for their animal, ensuring the pet has the life the owner would have wanted for them. It’s our way of saying “thank you” to our Legacy Circle members that have generously included AHS in their estate plans.

Through this program, Annie was initially placed into a caring foster volunteer's home. From there we reached out to our inner circle of staff and volunteers to find someone special to adopt Annie. Janice, a friend of an AHS volunteer, responded, giving this cuddly dog the loving home she deserves.

"Annie is settling in nicely with her new dog sister, Lulu, and loves meeting other dog friends,” says Janice. “If she's not being social, you'll probably find her snuggled up on my lap or on the sofa. I wish her previous owner could know how much Annie is loved in her new home. I'm looking forward to spending many years with her."
