My name is Whitney and I adopted one of my best friends "Jackson" from the Char-Meck Animal Care & Control shelter. He was 19 months when I adopted him. I had recently lost two of my best friends Shadow and Dixie to old age. Jackson has been the combination of both of my old friends, and has helped my heart heal! I LOVE him so much and I thank the shelter for taking him in, keeping him, and adopting him out to me. We have an unbreakable bond and I'm so happy that he and I found each other! I had originally come in to adopt a kitten, but after at least four visits to the shelter, everytime I was there this one special guy kept pawing at me and my pocketbook strap thru his cage. I decided on a kitten but at the last minute changed my mind and adopted Jackson! He was older but perfect! I am just so happy and thankful that the shelter was so good to Jackson and to me! Thank you to all the staff!
