Shirley has always loved animals and wished she could do more to help those in need. The plight of dogs in Thailand, especially after the flood, had her considering adopting a dog from that part of the world. She did take photos of dogs at the humane society in Ottawa for their web-pages to show available dogs. Both Tika and Sam were adopted from the humane society and if it were completely up to her, Shirley would have adopted more.

If you would like to donate to a cause that is all Shirley, please consider a gift to the Ottawa Humane Society.
