Shelters are filled with dogs of different breeds and age and genders, but no matter their differences these pooches have one wish in their heart: to find a forever home but unfortunately for some the fulfillment of this wish takes longer than for the others.
The dog of our story stayed in a shelter for over a year in hopes that someone will take him to his forever home, thankfully this wish came true recently.
Arizona Humane Society posted last month about Lola, a two year old pittie and explained that the dog has been staying at the Humane Society of Wickenburg for “400 days and counting.”
Lola came to the shelter in a litter, while all other puppies got adopted poor Lola still hasn’t found her forever home.
Everyone that met the sweet dog was surprised about what’s happening.
“She is a happy, wiggly pup who loves people, is well-behaved, and is house trained,” Arizona Humane Society wrote.
“When this sweet girl isn’t out in the play yard getting her wiggles out, she can be found snuggling with her favorite two-legged friends and getting some well-deserved belly rubs!”
The shelter took the dog in for a change of scenery hoping they would manage to find a loving forever home. That move turned out really helpful and Lola found the deserving forever home in less than 24 hours.
“We couldn’t be happier for this sweet girl and her new family!” the Humane Society wrote.
The AHS reports that they have found forever home to over 900 dogs that were in Lola’s condition over the years all thanks to collaborations with other shelters through their Project Reachout Program.
“[Lola] is a perfect example of the importance of collaboration between rescues and shelters to help save as many homeless pets’ lives as possible!” they wrote.
We also are so happy for the sweet pooch and for kind people who have a big heart.
