Lucky cried at the door as his dad walked out, and Corbett knew that transitioning to shelter life wouldn’t be easy for the pup. But fate smiled on the pair just when things looked their darkest.
“The deputy director of the Community Services Department was onsite that day and heard about [Williams'] story," Corbett said. "Almost immediately, he was on the phone with the county's Senior Services Department trying to figure out what resources they could offer and what we could do to help.”
Williams moved into a hotel room that night, a placement arranged by the Senior Services Department and a few generous anonymous donors.
Once Williams was set up in a safe space, the next challenge was to get Lucky out of the noisy shelter and into a temporary home. Corbett shared Lucky's story on Facebook, and her post quickly went viral.
