Nuns Adopt A 9-Year-Old Pit Bull 'Because Nobody Else Is Going To Want Her'
On Sunday, three nuns from Nyack, 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 in Pomona, N.Y., 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.'"
