Email your adopted pet story and photo to Here’s an email we received with a great photo from Mary: “Hello folks at,  Here is a little fellow that I found on or better said, you found him for me.  He was shown as “Bravehart”, a Scottish Terrier  found in a kill shelter in Tennessee and rescued by Helping Animals Rescue Team from Franklin, NJ.  He had been neglected and was not in the best of health.  After a visit with my vet, an abscessed tooth extraction, antibiotics, and worming medication he is in tip-top health again.  He is now known as Rory and is enjoying his life in his own home and nice fenced-in yard in the country that he shares with his “sister” Zoey the Cairn Terrier.  He is a very lovable little guy, who wants to be in my company all the time.   He loves his yard, and sits outside and watches the people across the street come and go, and chases the squirrels out of his yard!!  He is a great addition to my home and he puts a smile on my face every day. Sincerely,  Mary from Massachusetts”
