With National Pet Day just passing, we thought an update on an old shelter pup was in order. Kathryn Adams Wood adopted Reagan from the Bullock County Humane Society fourteen years ago when Reagan was just under a year old.
Mrs. Wood was so excited about her new family member that she told her brother and sister-in-law, Rob and Connie Adams, about Reagan’s brother. The Adams adopted Reagan’s brother and gave him the name Huck.
Huck lived a long life with the Adams but sadly has passed away. Reagan is still living her best life. She loves to go for walks. “She has inspired me to get up and go for more walks and be outside more.
She also loves to sit and watch her television shows with me,” said Wood about her pup. “She is so loving. She is the definition of unconditional love!” Reagan, a mix-breed, was dubbed a “Union Springs Dog,” meaning that she has a little bit of every stray dog in Union Springs.
This goes to show how well the Bullock County Humane Society has done, over the last fourteen years, with getting strays off the streets and spayed and neutered.
“The shelter does great work. Everyone in the community needs to support them,” commented Wood.
Last year when the shelter needed blankets, Wood and her family went through their linen closets and donated all their unused blankets, towels, and sheets. Thank you, Mrs. Wood, for adopting Reagan and giving her a family and her forever home.
