Pirate was at the Oahu SPCA in Hawaii for seven long years. No one ever inquired about her and the staff thought she would spend the rest of her life there. People would come in and say, “Oh, that’s so sad, she’s lived her for so long,” but that is as far as it would go. Pirate was about to give up hope when a woman appeared that would change her life.

Jennifer and her husband, both in the military, were stationed in Hawaii. Since they just arrived, they were looking for a home and talked about a dog, but decided to wait. Jennifer starting to look up some local shelters where she could volunteer.
