I adopted my Maggie Mae from the SVHS in December 2000. I had just lost my beloved basset Beatrice Mae to cancer that October. I was very undecided about whether I should adopt Maggie so soon after losing Beatrice. I prayed one night to God and asked him for a definite answer from Him about whether I should or shouldn't. The next day I was driving to work and saw a bumper sticker I had never seen before. It said, "Need a friend? Adopt a pet at the Souris Valley Humane Society!". This is where Maggie was! I feel like God spoke directly to me that day, and she was adopted by nightfall. I can't imagine loving a dog more than I do Maggie. She is totally devoted and loyal to me and the sweetest heart I have ever known.weetest heart I have ever known.
