Kelli was Born to Herd Sheep!

Seven-year-old Kelli was adopted from the Shelter in April of 2015 by HSVC staff member Heather Rowe. The adorable Border Collie was just 8-months-old when she was brought to the HSVC as an owner surrender. Due to the situation she came from, Kelli was very fearful when meeting new people. Heather decided to foster Kelli to help her conquer her fears, and it didn't take long for the pup to become a "foster fail." She has been living happily with Heather ever since!
