When three nuns from Sisters of Our Lady of Christian Doctrine recently lost their adored dog, they knew that when it was time to open their home to another, it would be for a dog who truly needed a loving home. While visiting Hi Tor Animal Care Center in Pomona, New York, they met Remi, a 9-year-old pit bull who had been at the shelter for months. They knew she was the answer to their prayers.

“[She was] very friendly right away and she just seemed like she belonged,” said Sister Virginia Johnson. “She’s a senior and we’re seniors. She’s a gentle dog.”

Sister Veronica Mendez said, “I purposely wanted a dog that nobody else wanted. I wanted to bring a dog home that might get euthanized if we didn’t take her.” Mendez said that when she saw Remi’s age on her info sign, she knew she was the dog for them. “Whatever time [Remi] has left, she’ll have good years,” said Mendez.

Sounds like a match made in heaven!
