Savannah Morrissey Martin grew up on the South Shore of Massachusetts and has been a lifelong animal lover. Having raised rabbits, parakeets, cats, and several dogs, Savannah has always been passionate about pets, their welfare and their happiness. In fact, throughout college, Savannah volunteered at the Adams County SPCA. It broke her heart to hear about Hope, a paralyzed dog who recently found a home through the Scituate Animal Shelter.
Hope was found by the side of the road with two gunshot wounds; she is now receiving the best of care and has been adopted. Hope inspires hope and Savannah is driven to help raise awareness and funds for pets like her. Partnering with SAS and cohassetinsurance.com, Savannah will be running in the El Paso Marathon in February. Her goal is to raise money for SAS to help Hope and all the other animals at the shelter.
We at SAS cheer on Savannah, Hope, and all those who have a bark, but no voice!
Hope has been through so much in her very young life but has an exceptionally sweet, loving and friendly temperament. Estimated to be just over a year old, Hope was found by a roadside suffering from two bullet wounds. She has now undergone surgery but one bullet remains lodged in her spine and has caused her to be paralyzed from the waist down.
Hope has been adopted into a wonderful home and now has a custom wheelchair to enable her to run around !
