Many of the animals went to Cabarrus Animal Hospital, a local veterinary clinic, for treatment, and this is how Brenda Tortoreo, who used to work there as a receptionist, met B.B.
“B.B. was in a corner,” Tortoreo told The Dodo. “She looked pitiful. She was scared to death. She wouldn’t eat, she wouldn’t drink and I felt so bad for her. And I said, ‘That’s the one I’m going to take home.’”
As soon as B.B. was well enough, Tortoreo did exactly that — she brought her home to live with her other two dogs.
