"Dear Ann and Shanahann,
Thank you for saving my dog Maya's life. When Maya arrived at OVRS she was in desperate need of a blood transfusion or she would've died, but because of your generosity you saved her life and I am truly grateful for that. Thank you so much for giving Maya another chance at life. You are truly her angel.

Thanks again,
Art, Jenn, Ethan, Emma, Roxy, and "Maya"
