Several years ago, I, Mariah Mountanos, walked into a building where I was surrounded by sad, yet endearing faces. In every direction, there was a dog with his or her head held low looking straight at me. It was heartbreaking. I thought about the fate of each dog and whether he or she would live to see another day. Even at eleven years old, I understood their futures were grim, but I also knew that I could help give them the second chance they deserved. With that one short visit to my local animal shelter, it became my mission and my passion to find homes for homeless pets. That passion has evolved into something I never could have imagined that day.
