Lucy (at Good Acres from 2016 - 2020)
Lucy came to Good Acres in 2016. As a rare exception, we adopted her from a shelter in Lexington, KY. She was estimated to be two years old at the time. We firmly believe she would have perished at the shelter. She was sicklish despite veterinary care and traumatized beyond anything we had ever seen or heard of. However, Lucy learned to trust, love, and thrive at the sanctuary! She always remained scared of people who she was not very familiar with and would not come near to be petted. Otherwise though, she changed into a funny confident girl. Life at the Sanctuary healed her many emotional and psychological scars. In the spring of 2020 her congestive heart failure reached a point to where we had to make the decision to let her go. She was euthanized and laid to rest on a quiet sunny Sunday morning.
We will forever be grateful for God's grace to allow us to meet Lucy and give her the love she deserved. While we miss her so much, we know she has returned home to where she truly belongs.
Run free special girl!
