Special Guest PJ

Hello! My name is PJ Foster and I am 6 years old. I was diagnosed with diabetes when I was only 8 weeks old. My owners at that time were not prepared to provide me with the necessary medical care, so they turned me over to a veterinary clinic in a small Missouri town. That is where I met my current owner, Ashley. She adopted me and we have been best friends ever since! Every day she gives me two insulin injections, one in the morning and one at night with my food. I lived in Missouri with her for four years while she was in veterinary school.

Through the University of Missouri – College of Veterinary Medicine PALS (Pet Assisted Love and Support) program, I was able to become Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certified. After I passed the CGC test, Ashley and I visited nursing homes and hospitals to cheer up people who are sick or need extra living assistance. In August of 2008 we moved to Florida where Ashley took a job as an emergency veterinarian. I get to go to work with her every day!

When we are not at work, I love to play with all of my toys and run on the beach. I am also a big fan of taking naps and watching Ashley cook in the kitchen. I am so very happy to be here and excited to meet all of you!
