A dog that spent 809 days at a Southern Illinois animal shelter waiting for a loving family to adopt her has finally found her forever home.
Helping Strays said in a Facebook post Demi is a “sweet girl” who found the perfect match with her adopted family.
“Today was a LONG time in the making,” the shelter said in its post. “They say good things come to those who wait and Demi now has a place to call her forever home!”
Demi is not the only dog to have found her forever home after spending years in a shelter. Days before Demi’s adoption, a senior dog named Baby Girl was adopted after spending seven years in a shelter.
And in January, a shepherd pitbull mix named Sarge got adopted after spending 628 days in a shelter.
