Last week, Mr. Williams was evicted from his home in Georgia. With just $40 in his pocket and all of his possessions packed into his car, he was forced to make a difficult choice. He didn’t want his 14-year-old dog to endure the difficulties of sleeping in his car – so he took Lucky to the animal shelter.
As he filled out the paperwork, the rescue center workers were heartbroken by the situation. Shelter staffer Katie Corbett decided to snap some photos and post them to her Facebook page with a plea for help.The shelter crew managed to get Williams into a hotel for a week so he wouldn’t have to sleep in his car. Katie then asked if anyone would be willing to foster Lucky until Mr. Williams was in stable housing. The next day, a man walked into the shelter and said he would be happy to take Lucky home. Katie then started a GoFundMe that has raised over $10,000 for Mr. Williams.
