The Power of Pets (Sky’s Purpose)

Today, we want to show how a RESCUE’S love can help heal our hearts…

Nothing compares to the joy of coming home to a loyal companion waiting for you. The unconditional love of a pet can do more than just keep us company. Animals also serve as a source of comfort and support when we need them the most.

This is exactly what Harlo was put on Earth to do…

Animals are so much more than pets.

After losing her lifelong furry friend, Ashley was devastated. When a beloved pup passes away, the loss can feel unbearable. Losing a pet usually means losing someone who understood the real you.

While healing from her loss, Ashley began a new job at HSNEGA. During her tour of the building, a pair of beautiful blue eyes met hers, and the rest is history…

“I walked into the Large Dog Adoption’s room and Sky (previously Harlo) started jumping to give me kisses. We took my employee photo together and we had the same happy facial expression. Her birthday is 11/11. I made a wish that night at 11:11pm and it came true… life has so much joy now and we’re always smiling ear-to-ear!” ~Ashley, HSNEGA Lifesaver and Sky’s PAWrent.

Since being adopted, Ashley and Sky have gone on many adventures together and made amazing memories. The pair regularly go hiking or spend time downtown at the square. These two are bonded forever. Both were alone and came together to find happiness like no other.

They are tied together through HSNEGA.

“Animals show how actions speak louder than words. They have not been given the power to speak in a language we understand, but the unconditional love and happy dance she gives me every time I pick up her harness to go on a walk has shown me that rescues end up rescuing us…

… If you’ve never adopted, please consider it. If it wasn’t for her greeting me at HSNEGA, I don’t know where I’d be after losing my previous pet. After getting to know our rescues, I hope you will feel the same.” ~Ashley, HSNEGA Lifesaver and Sky’s PAWrent.
