When Joey was rescued he was nervous and didn't trust anyone. Now he is the happiest dog, and even has a little human best friend to play with whenever he wants. Joey received his happy ending, and it was all thanks to Lisa - and so the community decided that Lisa deserved her happy ending, too.
The community of San Pedro heard about all that Lisa had done for Joey, and decided that they wanted to repay her. A fundraiser was started for her to help get her back on her feet, and it raised $3,590. Lisa was able to use the money to get her van fixed and start moving her life in the right direction again.
