At the time of his adoption, Miller was a seven-year-old black Labrador mix who no one seemed to want. He spent most of his life in shelters and seemed destined to be homeless for the rest of his life – until William changed his world.

William is an Army veteran. Together with his wife, Pamela, they were searching for a new pet friend. They live in a fairly rural area in Ohio, and William needed a pet to help with anxiety and depression. In many ways, he and Miller were on similar paths. Two older gents, both in need of a hero.

Fortunately, Greater Good Charities partner, Pets for Patriots, serves communities of all types, populations and sizes. They’re proud to have programs in many rural areas of the country, including their partnership with Geauga Humane Society Rescue Village. William met Miller there, and the kinship was instant.

“Miller is doing great, and we are very happy. We could not have done this without you. You have my eternal thanks and Miller’s eternal thanks as well. He was kept in a shelter most of his life and now has a warm, loving home. He means so much to my wife and me.” –William, an Army veteran
