The theme of this Our City, Our Story : LIVE storytelling night was “Happiness” and Megan Hastings chose to talk about how love brought her happiness. Megan, a self-proclaimed “play-it-safer” took a chance. She asked a question that changed her life.
In 2014, Patrick Karceski found puppies that were thrown away in a dumpster. He brought them to Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary, Inc. Rockford IL and they rescued them. One of those puppies, Ivy, was adopted by Jennifer Walker, who brought her to training. At training, the trainer said that Ivy has the temperament to be a great therapy dog. She proudly helps out at OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center.
Ivy was thrown away, and now helps people who need help, brightening their day.
