Baby Bella, or “Bella” for short, is a 30-pound mixed breed dog who was surrendered to Gateway Pet Guardians in 2016. Bella struggled to adapt to shelter life and only made canine and human friends after very slow introductions. Due to her cautious and sometimes diva-like nature, potential adopters shied away from Bella. As a result, she spent years at the shelter.
In 2018, a shelter volunteer (and Bella-approved friend), took her home to foster and a year later, officially adopted her. Bella now spends her days cuddling with her amazing mom and showing the ropes to each foster animal who makes their way through her house.
Bella represents the thousands of animals in shelters who end up struggling to find an adoptive home because of behavioral or medical concerns. Project Bella is dedicated to helping shelters raise awareness and funds to support these animals while finding them adoptive homes.
