Dog Who Spent More Than 400 Days At Animal Shelter Finally Finds Loving Home

Dog Who Spent More Than 400 Days At Animal Shelter Finally Finds Loving Home

A dog who had spent more than 400 days at an animal shelter has finally found a loving home.

Lola the pitbull was being cared for at the Humane Society of Wickenburg in Arizona, where she spent hundreds of days waiting for a new owner to scoop her up.

Eventually she was transferred to the Arizona Humane Society (AHS) in Phoenix 'for a change of scenery', and it was here that Lola's fortunes turned around.

In many US states, animal shelters and pounds aren't legally obligated to keep animals for more than one to seven days.

After trying their hardest to get Lola rehomed, the staff at the Humane Society of Wickenburg decided to enlist the help of AHS' Project Reachout Program, which helps save pets by working with other shelters.

Within just 24 hours of her being placed at another shelter in Arizona, a family from Mesa had realised there was a Lola-shaped hole in their lives, and decided to adopt the two-year-old pooch.

A photo posted on the AHS' Facebook page shows Lola posing for a family photo with her new owners.

The caption also detailed her story, saying: "AMAZING PUP-DATE! Last week we shared the story of a very special dog named Lola. After more than 400+ days at the Humane Society of Wickenburg, Lola was transferred to the Arizona Humane Society for a change of scenery in hopes of finally finding her forever home.

The post continued: "Just this year alone, AHS has transferred in almost 900 pets in need from other shelters, just like Lola, through its Project Reachout Program.

"We couldn't be happier for this sweet girl and her new family!"

AHS' Project Reachout Program is a 'lifesaving program that transfers at-risk pets from other animal welfare organisations', its website says.

"Due to initiatives like Project Reachout, AHS has undergone one of the most rapid transformational changes in animal welfare in the country decreasing euthanasia by 81 percent and saving an additional 100,000 lives," AHS writes.

"AHS has become a 'destination' shelter for at-risk pets due to our innovative and lifesaving behavior and medical programs as well as our Ethical No-Kill Philosophy."
