Dear Mr. Santa Paws:
My name is Thelma and I really don't need much. My foster mama and SOCA have done so much for me already. When they brought me hoime from the shelter last year with my daughter Louise, they said I was a 'hot mess'. I had all kinds of worms including heartworms, a bad case of mange, and was super skinny and tired from being used for breeding all my life. They have made me so he althy and even found my daughter a home out of state and I am really pretty happy hanging out with my foster brothers and sisters and sleeping on the chair. But if there is one thing I would ask for is that you can find me a home that wants an older snuggle bug so foster mama can help someone else who really needs it. Oh, and if you want to give them some donations to help other doggies like me, that would be nice too. Thank you Santa Paws.
Your good doggie Thelma.
