Meet Lola, our rescue's namesake. Lola was adopted at 5 months old by our founder and was the driving inspiration behind the rescue. She was anxiety-ridden and couldn't function without a human nearby. Trainers, veterinarians and thousands of dollars in toys and calming aids later, Lola became the best dog anyone could have. Then at 5 years old, she started running into walls and having minor seizures. She was diagnosed with a brain tumor and a life expectancy of 6 months. Again Lola was as determined and lived another 6 years. She was a shining example of never give up and hence the inspiration to help other animals in need of a family."
