Have you heard about Willet the Therapy Dog?

Rescue Dog WilletWillet was rescued in 2008 from a puppy mill in Georgia by the Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network (CPCRN). He was adopted by long-time Bartels Pet Hospital client Belinda Adornetto, who flew all the way to New Mexico to bring him back East.

Today, Willet is a member of Therapy Dogs International, delivering smiles and joy to many people in senior living communities, rehab centers, and even dentist offices in the Brecksville area.

And, if it weren't for our very own Dr. Gretchen Zarle, he may never have stepped paw in Ohio. Dr. Zarle recommended the CPCRN website to search for the perfect pet for their family – "a calm adult dog that could be taken anywhere." Willet was the perfect fit for the Adornetto's!

Willet's story was featured in Brecksville Magaine's March 2015 edition. For the full story, please read Rescued pup finds new life as therapy dog.

Bartels Pet Hospital works with CPCRN and Valley Save-a-Pet to give rescued animals low cost spays, neuters, vaccines and more. We are proud to support such great organizations and help these special animals find their forever homes.
