After a stray showed up at the Wiliker's, the family turned to Furry Kids' Refuge, which cared for the dog until it found a permanent home.

"It was such a relief for us to be able to call someone to help and know he would have good care until he was adopted," B. Wilker wrote on GREATNonprofits.org.
