Chevy, a 5-year-old, is a sweet dog at Second Chance Animal Shelter in Boaz, currently being sponsored by The Reporter’s Publisher Kim Patterson and her son. Patterson says even if people don’t have room for a dog at their homes, they can still show love and support for the animals by sponsoring one of the many fur babies living at the shelter.

This past week, I had the pleasure of speaking at our local chapter of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association (NARFE).

I would like to thank Bill Oates for asking me to speak and each member for warmly welcoming me. It was a pleasure to meet each one of you.

I want to take time this week to introduce you to Chevy. Chevy is 5-years-old and currently resides at Second Chance Shelter. My son and I have the privilege of sponsoring Chevy while he is at the shelter. If you are interested in giving Chevy a forever home, reach out to Second Chance and they will be happy to guide you through the adoption process.

If you are financially able, I would like to encourage you to sponsor a fur baby at Second Chance. The process is very easy, and you will receive a letter and photo of the fur baby you are sponsoring. Second Chance Shelter is a blessing to our community, and I would like to thank them for their hard work.
