Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. When Anna, a young girl from Wilton who was diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition, was approached by Make-A-Wish Connecticut, she was asked what her one true wish would be --- and she wanted to create a puppy play room at a dog shelter. She envisioned a place that all families could enjoy with their furry friends. Anna wanted to create an in-door dog-like park for all of the rescue puppies and dogs to feel comfortable and have a nice place to meet potential adopters and families. It was a natural fit for Make-A-Wish Connecticut and Blue Buffalo to partner on this incredible wish that not only brings endless smiles to Anna but will provide memories forever for dogs and families to experience in the community.
