Though we were open just 37 days in 2020 before having to temporarily shut our doors due to the pandemic, for some pets, those days were life changing. Brando came to SICSA from Ross County Humane Society in late January last year. His adorable face and playful personality immediately helped him stand out to staff. When we opened our doors for the grand opening of our new home in Washington Township, he quickly caught the eye of numerous visitors.
While some guests enjoyed touring the new building, Stephen Rossi made his way to Pup Town, ready for a new best friend. Brando waited patiently in his kennel, not knowing this day would be the start of his second chance. When they met each other, Stephen knew that Brando belonged with him. Rather than starting with a “slumber party” (a trial adoption where adopters can see how a pet does in their home before making things final), Stephen took a leap of faith and outright adopted Brando.
Months later, Brando (now named Sterling) was happy at home and settling in well at his forever home. His family keeps him busy with lots of playtime and exercise, and his dad said he was doing “great” with visitors, even small children! We are so happy for Sterling and all of the improvements he has made with his family. We are grateful for adopters like Stephen for opening up their hearts and homes to make happy tails like this possible.
