  1. I am extremely interested in giving Emily a home. We have adopted several rescue dogs in the past and found them sweet, kind to have a permanent home. I lost my beloved Chloe on Oct 27, 2023 and she was a rescue and extremely sweet in every way. Not only do I and my husband miss her more than words can express, but also our Tucker who is a labradoodle and was her sibling.
    I will also complete your application noted on Facebook in case this form does not transfer directly to you at SOAR.
    Please give my application serious consideration regarding Emily’s placement. I can assure you she will receive love, care and considered as the fourth member of our family.
    Thank you

    1. Hi Billie,

      Thank you for reaching out!
