Sometimes when you're not even expecting it, you meet a new companion. And so it went for Gillian, a regular volunteer with a Los Angeles area shelter, when she met Sienna and felt an immediate connection that she couldn't deny.
Gillian adopted her right then and there, and any doubts she had were soon wiped away: "I put her in the car with me … I looked over and put my hand out, and she licked me," Gillian recalls. "And I said, 'This one's mine.'" Sienna's story is a reminder to always follow your heart when you connect with that special pet.See adoptable pets near you
