With this in mind, she paid a visit to Sacramento’s Front Street Animal Shelter (FSAS) looking for a furfriend. However, Andrews wasn’t just looking for some company; she also had an altruistic motive. “I wanted to help somebody – a dog – like Lola helped us,” she told The Dodo.
As a result, she made a request of FSAS that melted shelter staff’s hearts. “I told them I wanted the oldest dog they had,” Andrews revealed. “The one that everybody was passing up, and [said] that I wanted to adopt him.”
