When Penelope was still in the field two days later, Hampson called animal control to see if they could help. But as soon as he put the call in, he got a bad feeling about it. “I didn’t want her going to the pound,” Hampson said. “I just didn’t think she would have a chance there.”
So Hampson took to Facebook — he wrote a post, asking if someone would rescue Penelope, and it found its way to Laura Forma, a woman who’s been rescuing dogs for the last three years. Forma offered to foster Penelope, and she asked the team at Brave Bully Rescue if they’d take official responsibility for Penelope's rescue and adoption process.
