Nuns Rescue 9-Year-Old Pit Bull

By Amy Sinatra Ayres

When a group of nuns went to Hi Tor Animal Care Center in New York to look for a pet to live with them, they didn't want the cutest puppy they could find. "I wanted to bring a dog home that might get euthanized if we didn't take her," Sister Veronica Mendez told New York's 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.'" The shelter's director said he was surprised that the nuns didn't shy away from Remy because she's a Pit Bull.

"Remy was sensitive to the sisters, especially to Sister Virginia, who walks with a cane. She kept up with her and was so attentive," said West Artope. A Hi Tor volunteer and a board member were so touched by the nuns' decision that they decided to cover the adoption fee themselves. - Read it at the Huffington Post
