Jo Magram of the Village of Sunset Point and her husband of 44 years retired in 2010 to The Villages. He died of cancer in 2014.

“Needless to say I was in a state of denial and depression and immediately rescued this bundle of fur. He in turn rescued me in so many ways with love, amusement, perpetual company and especially a reason to come home to a sad and empty home,” she said.

“I will never forget this gift given to me at my lowest time in life. I have always encouraged people to seek to rescue an animal needing a home, for there is such a need,” she added.
