What APA! says about Mattie:

Why APA! says Mattie deserves your love:

  • Mattie has faced a lot of adversity, but that doesn't stop him from being upbeat, playful and attentive to his foster parents.
  • He is not able to control his bowels or bladder so he needs a special home that can make sure he stays clean. Since he loves to snuggle against someone's chest so much, all you have to do is put a size 1 diaper on him and the two of you are set to cuddle and watch TV.
  • Purchasing diapers will never be a worry. A generous donor has stepped up to send Mattie's owner diapers and a bag of kibble every two months for the rest of his life.

In summary: If you're patient, responsible and committed to the belief that all animals deserve to be treated equal (they do!), welcome Mattie into your heart and home. He will be forever grateful.
