Betsy was finally leaving the Humane Rescue Alliance with a new family who was ecstatic to get her after spending more than 200 days there.

Betsy didn’t need to be anxious because as she cast her final peek at the shelter, she noticed a jubilant mob of rescue workers encouraging and supporting her.

Ashley Valm, the Humane Rescue Alliance’s director of adoptions, said to The Dodo, “I had chills.” “I observed a few of my coworkers sobbing. Everyone was quite happy to see her return home.

The poignant scene was captured by the rescue in this video:

The employees at the rescue were moved by Betsy’s unbridled love for people when they first saw her when she arrived. Betsy was discovered living alone in Southeast D.C.’s Anacostia area.

As you pet her, “[Betsy] will look at you and lean softly toward you,” Valm explained. She hasn’t met someone who she didn’t like.

However, Betsy found the shelter to be stressful and didn’t get along with the other dogs as well.

Rescue workers were aware that it would take worried Betsy a little longer to locate the ideal home. They did everything they could to make Betsy comfortable while they waited. They even started inviting her inside their areas so she could escape the commotion.

She adored spending time in our directors’ offices because there were no other dogs there, according to Valm. She spent the entire day dozing off on the office couch while cuddling with our employees. She was a dream to have in the office and a doll.

The animal shelter was celebrating Clear the Shelters Day, a national pet adoption campaign when Betsy was eventually adopted. There was a murmur of anticipation in the air.

A party mood was already there, according to Valm.

The workers of the shelter radioed to one another on walkie-talkies as word of Betsy’s impending departure spread, pleading with everyone to come see her go.

They applauded, shouted encouragement, and rejoiced as they watched the adorable puppy leave for her next adventure, knowing that by displaying compassion and empathy, they had contributed to altering her life.
