When Catherine Beeston went to look at the dogs at Greenhill Humane Society, something happened.

"They give me the paperwork, and I can't fill out that form, and my hands start to shake and my blood sugar - I started to sweat, which is usually an indication to me that my blood sugar's dropping," she recalled. "It got really bad."
