Although National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day
is April 30, any day is a great day
to adopt a pet in need!

This is Tuna. He's a bit of a celebrity in the dog-loving world. "Tuna is an adorable 3 year-old Chiweenie who was born with an aggressive overbite and a lower jawline-dysfunction. He also has 5 moles surrounding his mouth, a crumbled chin and a neck that looks like he has been soaking in a bathtub for days! Those who can see past his irregularities will also adore him for them. They have eyes that see his true beauty because true beauty captivates our hearts and not just our eyes."

Maranda Haluska, Practice Acquisition Manager at VetCor, recently met Tuna at an event benefiting PAWS Chicago, Chicago's largest no-kill animal shelter. Tuna is on tour with BarkBox with proceeds going to various shelters across the country. Tuna himself was adopted from a shelter not so long ago. Read Tuna Melts Our Hearts to learn more about this special dog's story.
