Centre promises "personal education", and a big part of "personal" is knowing the persons who are part of your community. For that reason, we frequently include a photo of the individual making the submision—to help bring "names and faces together." If you prefer not to have your picture included, just say so on your submission and we'll honor that personal request as well.

Is there anyone out there who can give Wendy a home? Click photo to see larger photo. She’s a one-year-old border collie mix, weighs about 25 pounds, and has these great ears that come to attention whenever she’s curious. She’s one of the most affectionate dogs you’ll ever meet. She’ll roll over to have her tummy rubbed and allows herself to be carried on her back, both signs of a dog who’s comfortable with people. Wendy was brought to the local humane society as a stray; I have been fostering her for several weeks because she stole my heart and I couldn’t bear to see anything bad happen to her. In addition to being very sweet and loving, Wendy is spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations, leash trained, crate trained, And whoever adopts her will have a built-in dog sitter whenever needed! If she sounds like the companion for you, give me a call at 5343 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
