John adopted sick little Spenser from the Madison County Shelter 13 years ago. John, Irene and R.D. McHone immediately bonded with their canine child, and a year later went back to the shelter and adopted Haley. Family friend Jamie Plott says Spenser filled their hearts over the years. Spenser passed away on September 1st and leaves behind John, Irene, R.D. and canine-sister Haley. Jamie says one message Spenser would want everybody to hear is “Please Adopt – we are worthy and lovable animals”.
