On Sunday, three nuns from Pomona, N.Y., walked into Hi Tor Animal Care Center with one intention: to adopt a dog that no one else wanted.
When the women met Remy, a 9-year-old pit bull who’d been at the shelter since October, they knew she was the animal for them.
“I wanted to bring a dog home that might get euthanized if we didn’t take her,” Sister Veronica Mendez told News 12. “And when I noticed the sign said ‘9 years,’ I said, ‘Virginia, we want this one, because nobody else is going to want her.'”
“Most people have a pretty bad understanding of pits,” Artope told HuffPost. “But Remy was sensitive to the sisters, especially to Sister Virginia, who walks with a cane. She kept up with her and was so attentive.”
Remy now lives with the nuns at Sisters of Our Lady of Christian Doctrine. Artope told HuffPost that the sisters didn’t have to pay for the adoption — Pauline Jarney, a Hi Tor volunteer, and Roberta Bangs, a Hi Tor board member, were so moved by the nuns’ actions that they covered the bill.
