Hi, my name is Saya Melo. I am currently a student at William and Mary pursuing a bachelor’s degree in public policy. I have played soccer all my life and love the outdoors, especially going on long walks. I have loved animals since I was very young. Not only are dogs loyal and affectionate, but they are a person’s best friend. I have had a few dogs of my own growing up and the not thing I’ve discovered is that pets need just as much emotional care and love as physical care. I am excited to meet some new furry friends!
