“Rami has been chosen to be the MCCHS Ambassador! For all of you that are concerned for my well being, please be assured that I am being well taken care of and loved. I love having the opportunity to meet and greet everyone during the day. At night I go to my other home where I can play and sleep with my fosters! No more worries as a dog on the street, now I have food in my tummy, a warm cozy bed, and lots of friends and most important…LOVE!! I’m thankful to be given this chance to become Ambassador and proud to annouce that during today’s Open House, I witnessed 15 of my shelter friends find their FURever homes! My mission to Rescue Shelter Pets was proven to be a testimony today! Thank you for all of your support!”
