Ray placed a call to Animal Control and learned Dolly couldn’t be adopted right away. She would first have to stay at a shelter for processing. But he was thrilled to be able to take her home for the night until she could be processed for adoption. He knew Dolly was the one as he recalled their first night together. He said, "When she crawled up on my shoulder like, ‘That's it. I'm done, I'm tired, I'm home.'"

Ray found the idea of Dolly being locked up and alone for a few days heartbreaking. He wanted her to know she did indeed have a fur-ever home with him as soon as possible. Ray visited her every day until he was able to take her home.

Finally, A Forever Home

Even though their journey together hit a ruff patch, Ray knew the dog in Dollar General was meant to be his. He couldn't wait to give Dolly the best home possible. And they would be awesome paw-tners in shopping and in life. Despite the setback, Ray remained committed to his furry friend, visiting her regularly and promising to bring her home as soon as possible.

After those long agonizing days of waiting and wagging tails, the day finally arrived when Ray received the news he had been waiting for – Dolly could come home with him for good. The reunion was nothing short of magical, with Dolly’s tail wagging furiously as she bounded into Ray’s arms.
