This is Mindy.
We are sad to announce that Mindy died peacefully after a brief illness in February 2024. She worked here for several years before her death guiding people from the waiting room, lending her super soft ears for a pet, barging in on sessions!, checking for contraband treats, and sometimes giving her whole self to comfort those in distress.
We miss her. We loved her. We are grateful she was here. She was a good worker and a very good girl.
What's her story?
Mindy was rescued so we don't know a whole lot about her. We think she was first rescued as young dog by a man who doted on her – she was his "baby." After several years together, he died in a car accident leaving Mindy personless.
With the help of caring folks, she made her way to the second rescue of her life, Sophia Grace Foundation, and Paige, who fostered her while they looked for the right home for this sweet girl.
Mindy's been through a lot but she is settling in. Bit by bit she is adjusting to her new home and she loves coming to NWOP.
There are many rescue organizations, including some local to our area. If you are considering a pet, please think rescue first. Awesome companions like Mindy are waiting to meet you.
