When I first met Truffles, she was sitting in a kiddie pool in a barn in Ohio. As the other dogs ran around seeking attention, this little dog sat quietly and watched the commotion. There was something about her that I couldn’t resist and I went and sat in the pool with her. She quietly crawled into my lap and melted my heart. Truffles made the trip back with me to The Simon Foundation facility in Bloomfield, CT. She received her vaccines, was spayed and received the love and comfort she needed to feel safe and secure. Truffles has recently been adopted and is doing fantastic with her new family. They love her and tell us she is such a joy. This is just one of over 500 such stories of the dogs and cats that come through our foundation to find loving forever homes.
