It is with broken hearts we announce the loss of our Wilma. She crossed to the Rainbow Bridge late morning Jan. 31st, 2020. She was loved by the HHS staff, volunteers and visitors almost 10 years to the day we seized her from a hellish life in a puppy mill. Her accurate age was undeterminable as she had been bred continuously and received no vet care so her body bore the damage and all her teeth removed. We believed her to be 6-8 years old. She immediately won all our hearts and became the Executive, Executive Director running the shelter the decade she was with us. She attended every Companion Camp, greeted and gave tours to visitors, went to schools and events on behalf of stopping puppy mills and tended to many other duties. One of her favorites was to sit in her personal chair in her office and at board meetings. So at 16-18 years old, we must say good-bye to our shining star who now joins Annie, Nosey, Burnie and all the other amazing animals that have gone before. Sweet, sweet Wilma we loved you for years, we love you still, we always have, we always will.
The Wilma Memorial Fund for Senior Animals of Senior Citizens is our tribute to Wilma's fight. We ask that each of you PLEASE donate a little extra to this fund so we can help unfortunate needy older animals whose owners cannot afford to get them the food and medical care they need. Thank you for your support.
