The wonderful pet-loving folks over at PEOPLEPets.com  celebrity pet website have partnered with Adopt-a-Pet.com to help homeless pets get some publicity in their Adopt Me series! This week it is sweet-natured Nikki from Richmond Virginia who’s looking for a home – even a foster home would be great until she finds her forever home. To learn more about her and see four fun photos including a rolling in the grass and hanging out with her human friends, visit her Adopt-a-Pet.com profile! Nikki is living proof that animals can be disheartened. The Animal Adoption and Rescue Foundation of Richmond, Va., saved her from a kill shelter three years ago when she was pregnant and heartworm positive; she’s been in and out of foster homes and boarding facilities ever since. Her puppies were adopted, but years later, the energetic 3-year-old is still waiting for her chance. “Her previous boarding facility told us she’d been getting depressed,” says AARF’s president Cindy Chiles-Smith. “So we moved her to another boarding facility just to give her a new outlook. Now she’s not as bad as she was. She’s kind of getting out of it.”
