When I was five years old we adopted my first dog, Copper, from the Richmond SPCA.
He was being abused by his owner and a family member surrendered him, because they couldn't take it anymore.
My dad took one look at this two year old Golden Retreiver and knew he was going to be a member of our family.
Copper brought so much love and joy to our family and friends. He protected us and loved us with everything he had.
I will never forget my baby boy or the thirteen years of memories we created together.
Animals have always been a big part of my family's life. I can't imagine a home without a pet, they are family.
I want to raise money so that another child can have a Copper to grow up with and another Copper can have an amazing thirteen years with a loving family.
Please donate today and help me make more homes whole with the love a companion.
