An animal shelter called Villalobos Rescue Center often gets many visitors who want to adopt a dog. After all, their establishment is quite famous for housing wonderful pit bulls.
They would often get visitors coming from different states. When this happens, the center manager makes sure to accommodate them well.
One day a single mother and her two sons went to the center to adopt a new dog. Tia, the manager, met with them and introduced them to several dogs. One pit bull named Lacey stood out to the family.
Lacey was a pit bull that was found outside of a home in New Orleans. She wasn’t on a leash, and there were no fences in her neighborhood. Her previous owners had kicked her out because they didn’t want her jumping on the bed.
The rescue center offered to train Lacey. However, the previous owner chose to surrender her instead. That’s how she ended up in the rescue center with Tia.
When the mother and her sons heard this story, they were baffled. Their family has no issue allowing dogs to jump on their bed. For them, it was natural to allow pets access to different parts of the house.
The family came to a unanimous decision. Without a doubt, Lacey will stay with them. They left the center with huge smiles on their faces. All the family had to do was patiently wait for the center to deliver Lacey to their home in Missouri.
When the Villalobos employees came to the adopters’ home, they checked for several things. The employees assessed whether the home had everything Lacey needed. Fortunately, the family was well prepared. –
The family had a huge backyard where Lacey could run around. She had toys and her dedicated spot inside the house. She was also allowed to stay in their bed if she wanted to.
After Lacey got to explore the house, the shelter employees bid farewell. It was the start of Lacey’s new life with a family who appreciates her more. Yet another family and another dog was helped by the people from the Villalobos Rescue Center.
