When Olivia arrived at the shelter she was scared, nervous, and fearful of new people and situations. Even after tireless efforts by volunteers and staff at the Jackson County Animal Shelter , Olivia was making little improvement – certainly not enough to make her eligible for adoption. Even coming out of her kennel was still a huge step all on its own.
Due to the severity of Olivia’s anxiety and fear, the volunteers were desperate to try anything that could help her. If she didn’t show some signs of improvement within a week, the shelter would have to consider euthanizing this beautiful dog.
How We Found Out
When my coworker and I arrived for our usual volunteer day – to walk some of the dogs and take photos – we were introduced to a few volunteers who had been working with Olivia.
While chatting, we were asked what we did. We explained that we work with Good Life, what our company does, the types of products we offer, and our goals for helping at the shelter. This is when one of the volunteers asked if we had any ThunderShirts, and if we’d be able to donate one.
We could tell that they desperately wanted to help this dog, and we made it our mission to assist them in any way we could. Of course, Good Life was happy to donate a ThunderShirt for Olivia, and we anxiously waited for an update on her progress.
