From “No Name” to Therapy Dog
By Pitter Patter Animal Rescue, located in Silver Lake, Wisconsin
Lola was a no name, four-month-pup with no name at an animal shelter. Due to her breed, her chances were slim to receive rescue. However, this sweet girl was saved by Pitter Patter Animal Rescue, given a name and placed into a foster home. From Day One, her foster parents noticed that little Lola had a fondness for wheels, wheel chairs, seniors and children.
They saw a special calling for this little girl that no one had before.
Her failed foster parents have since adopted Lola. Lola attends parades and events as a “spokesdog” for Pitter Patter Animal Rescue.
The most special thing about Lola? She will always find a person with special needs and decides simply must spend time with them. She has touched the hearts of many, and will continue to educate all to the breed.
She is so loved.
During the 2013 Blue Buffalo Home 4 the Holidays campaign (Oct. 1, 2013 – Jan. 2, 2014), participating animal organizations are encouraged to enter heartwarming adoption success stories. Submissions can be made weekly by snail mail, fax or email, and at the end of each week Helen Woodward Animal Center will select a winning story to be featured on this very blog! After the campaign ends on Jan. 2, 2014, the weekly winning stories will be compiled into a pool and voted on by partnered organizations, animal welfare fans and the public. The story with the most votes will win a $500 donation for their animal organization and will be announced on Helen Woodward Animal Center’s blog in February, 2014.
