“She wound up being adopted by a couple who seemed committed and we took it very slow,” Ward said. “They visited her a couple times, then they did an overnight, and then they were sure they wanted her. Fast forward five months, they changed their minds and said they couldn’t keep her anymore.”
After being returned, Jessica stayed at a boarding kennel for nearly a year. Then she was moved to Forever Home Rehabilitation Center in Virginia, a partner of Second Chance Rescue, and a family adopted her a few months later. But once again, it didn’t work out.
