After This Dog Was Returned To A Shelter Twice, A Rich Heiress Sent A Jet To Bring Her Home

in July 2014 Cindy Barclay Powell put
out an appeal on Facebook is there anyone out there who can give this girl
a home she wrote she was referring to an elderly Labrador by the name of Lady it
seemed that this old girl had just gone to great lengths to escape her adoptive
home but time was running out for her to find a new one to understand ladies
plight however it’s best to hear the tale from the beginning you see Lady had
actually had a couple of different names in the past
indeed when she’d been living with her previous owners Lady apparently went by
the names of ma kettle or pepper in 2012 however ladies first owner died and
unfortunately it seems that there was no one else around who was willing to take
in the human ‘less dog so with no place left to turn lady ended up finding a
home in the Chautauqua County Animal Shelter in sedan Kansas Kelsey Lloyd was
a worker in the shelter at the time he reportedly told kW CH TV in 2014 that
lady was a Superdog indeed he apparently said if I had to pick a dog this would
be the one I’d take perhaps unsurprisingly then lady later found an
adoptive home so things were seemingly looking up for lady
and according to today lady lived with this new family for roughly 18 months
however it appears that not everybody agreed with Lloyds assessment of the dog
specifically lady’s adopted family were unhappy how she interacted with other
pets reports vary a little in regard to the exact nature of lady’s behavior
today for instance claim that lady began to grapple with smaller dogs meanwhile
KCTV stated lady was too rowdy with the family’s pup in addition to being in
conflict with dogs smaller than her in any case the outcome was the same the
family could no longer care for lady yet here again reports vary a little in the
details the KCTV report claims that lady was subsequently shipped back to the
sedan shelter and then later adopted for a second time
today however reported that lady’s family offered her directly to a friend
of theirs but whatever the actual sequence of events it’s true that lady
eventually found herself living in Independence Kansas and if you wanted to
drive from the shelter in sedan to the new home in Independence google map says
that it’d be about 37 miles why is the distance relevant well as it turns out
lady seemingly had no interest in making a life in Independence indeed sometime
after being adopted lady up stakes and left for sedan yes an elderly dog
apparently suffering with arthritis made the 30 plus mile journey back to sedan
on foot it also appeared that lady had a specific destination in mind the home of
her previous family but this homeward bound style story was to have a twist
ending rather than being welcomed with open arms Lady found that she no longer
had a home to return to certainly the previous family with the
small puppy reportedly didn’t want to take lady in and the independence based
family apparently didn’t want her back either so ladies soon found herself as a
returned resident of the Chautauqua County Animal Shelter no further forward
than she’d been two years previous that’s when Cindy Barclay Paulo snapped
a photo of lady and posted a plea about her on Facebook
fortunately the post went viral and caught the attention of reporter Sheryl
Hanna and on July 30th 2014 Hanna published a piece on Lady in the
National Pet Rescue examiner that apparently garnered a million views more
importantly this article found its way to one
Helen rich don’t recognize the name well you’ll almost certainly be aware of at
least part of her family’s history after all her great grandfather William J
Wrigley created the world famous chewing gum brand that bears his last name in
lady Richard seemingly found a kindred spirit I had to survive in a jury walk a
long long way like her rich told today referring to her fights against breast
cancer she endured I endured her story resonated with me and so the stage was
set for ladies rescue at that time rich also owns seven additional rescue dogs
and her on the wings of angels rescue helps to care for so many more so rich
knew what she was getting into I said check go get a jet and get my dog rich
explained to today and that’s apparently exactly what Chuck did indeed today
reported that two of Rich’s assistants took a flight to the shelter in Sudan to
adopt Lady when their task was done the pair’s seemingly then hopped back on the
jet to fly the rescue dog to Rich’s estate in Tampa Florida shortly
thereafter rich returned to the property to show lady some of the loves she could
expect from that point on in fact shelter worker Lloyd claimed that lady
subsequently enjoyed her new home he told today between all the maids in the
butler’s she’s being pet constantly unfortunately however the story must end
on something of a somber note because in July of 2015
roughly a year after rich took her in ladies sadly passed away the American
Kennel Club reported that the cause of lady’s death was a malignant adrenal
gland tumor during her last year on earth at least ladies seemingly lived a
very good life and her final night was spent in the comfort of her own bed on
July 14 2015 rich wrote on Facebook the long night is
over lady has her wings it’s perhaps comforting to know then that lady found
some peace after all I hope you liked this video if so please hit the

  • All animals and people need someone to show them love especially when you pass on. God bless you for being there. We should follow.

  • God Bless that lady for taking in beautiful dog lady. The lovely smile on the dogs face in the latter pictures shows how happy she was. She had found her home. Now she is in her forever home with the angels above…. free and happy. Everything that lives must be protected. ^j^

  • Thank you Ms Rich for adopting Lady. Lady got to know love before she passed away. Fly and run Lady up at the Rainbow Bridge. Rip sweet Lady.

  • What an amazing story. The womanโ€™s a special one of a kind to take the elder dog. Blessings to her.

  • Bless her sweet heart. Thank you Helen Rich for giving Lady the love and life she so surely deserved and for rescuing so many others who needed you. RIP Lady.โค ๐Ÿ•โค

  • I love this story. So what did we learn?

    1. DO NOT return a pet to the shelter. It is wrong and if you can't control your pet's behavior seek help but don't return them like a rental car. What it does to an animal's security takes time to reverse it.

    Thank you, Miss Rich and God Bless you for all of your rescues and your foundation.

  • Bless you Helen for being there for sweet Lady. The pic of her smiling in your arms melted my heart.

  • Thank you for rescuing this beautiful dog and thank you to the heiress who gave her a for ever home God bless you rip lady I hope you're at Gods feet

  • Dogs are amazing creatures. A world without them is unimaginable. Sadly, their lifespan is too short and the day you have to say goodbye is heartbreaking. Make the best of those precious years of companionship with a gift from God.

  • Thanks to the kind lady that adopts rescue dogs
    ๐Ÿ˜‡ you are giving a lot of dogs a forever home and they deserve the best.

  • Thank you Ms Rich for your beautiful heart! Lady lived her last year as she should have all along- in a home of love. What a wonderful story! โ™ฅ๏ธโค๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธโค๏ธ

  • I am so sad seeing this. Lady seems like such a sweet super dog. Pets are forever family and unless you had no other choice, you should never give them up.

    Thanks to Helen Rich for opening up her heart, home and everything to all of the unwanted dogs who need a loving home. So sad that Lady passed away but at least Rich gave her the best final year of her life. Rich is a kind lady that will have good karma coming back at her.

  • This made me tear up. So sad that she only had a year with Rich. I'm happy she was happy with her, but I wish she could have lived longer.

  • R.I.P. sweet lady. You had a long and particular happy life. Thanks to everybody who helped her through the hard times and giving you love and care ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–Sometimes it is getting complicated when dogs getting older. Our dog loves everybody, every other animals for about 9 years. She is getting 10 in december. There is no problem with our 3 cats, she's used to them. If there is one dog around her it's okay but when there are more she's growling often or make some "airbites". We must accept it cause it is her right to feel comfortable in her home ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–

  • This story was sad and happy, I'm just glad that Lady was able to find love again after her original owner died. I absolutely love dogs and if I had the money I would take in as many as the law allowed. I just don't understand how a person can get a animal and then just toss them out like garbage Thank you to the loving woman that went out of her way to make sure Lady had a beautiful and loving home for rest of her life. RIP little Lady

  • Lady is with my Angel blazieboy he will look Angel lady now they will be running around in heaven like puppies again with every one else's beloved fur-Angels god bless this woman for giving lady the best time they had together and huge thankyou Hugs&love from Maggie and Chunk sends his special paw hugs to you xxxxx๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ•โ™ฅ๏ธ

  • Rest in peace sweet Lady girl โค
    So happy that you finally found a loving home for your last year here on earth

  • Died in her own bed at home with the human who loved her. Good way to go after the tumult of her early life. Helen Rich is a peach.

  • My abused cutie, named Blackie, would not come to his name. I love talked him as baby, little guy, sugar bear, etc. Eventually this dumb human realized he answered to Little Guy, and ran away from Blackie. Little Guy he is.

  • Happy, but sad. It took a long time but Lady got what she deserved. I'm just sorry it didn't last longer. RIP Lady and thank you Ms. Rich.

  • This makes my heart swell with love โค๏ธ
    Thanks for saving her
    Youโ€™re a wonderful person ๐Ÿ’ž๐ŸŒน

  • Some people after being so rich he lost his love to others almost and be proudy but this man although a rich one his heart isfull of love kindness as he is a man of greatness Thank you very much to that great man

  • I'm glad that Lady at least had a home when she past. She's at Rainbow Bridge awaiting the day she will see her human cross over and they will be together again. Bless you to the owner and to Lady.

  • It sad when dog is part of a family and once it starts to age and has health problems people either dumps them or take them to the shelter. They dont bother to think that dogs are almost like a child They count on you for food and water and if trained to do their business outside they count on you to walk them or let them out. They become attach to the familiy i can't understand these heartless people that dump them or place them in a shelter and they have the nerve to say that they loved their dog. Thats a crock of crap of a lie if I ever heard one. Those poor dogs are traumatized because they dont understand what is going on just like a child. Their whole lives are turn upside down in a split second by their owner and they cant understand whats going on. No one should have a dog if you cant make a lifetime commitment hopefully its not like the life time commitment like today's marriage Lol. Dogs are part of the family

  • Lady is one of the old story amongs dog's life. But she come home to the Creator with full of proud and pride โคRest In Peace Lady ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ’๐ŸŒธ Thank you very much Helen, I'm proud of you Helen – God Bless You ๐ŸŒปthank's eMystery to share this story to us ๐ŸŽฅโค๐Ÿ‘

  • God Bless for saving Lady at the end and loving her ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™โ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธ thumbs down for all the who let Lady down ๐Ÿคฌ

  • Way to go Miss Rich, youโ€™re my hero . And thanks for taking care of all the other animals also. "Saint Helen". ๐Ÿถ

  • RIP Lady ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™Im so happy the last year of your life was filled with Love. Helen Rich you are an Amazing Wonderful Woman you gave Lady the Love and home she so very very very very much deserved, and you are an Angel to the dogs you have taken in. Beautiful but sad story. That other family didn't deserve her the one she walked 30 miles to go back to, Lady was way too good, beautiful, sweet and loving for them.

  • This dog looks just like my dog dizzy, just has a great strong prey drive wants to hunt what God put them on this planet to do and protect their person.

  • Our four-legged family should never have to die. I have always been more sensitive to the passing of a pet, especially a rescued animal, than to humans. I think it's because of the suffering that some humans place on unwanted pets, while my human family have all died of natural causes and lived the lives to their fullest.

  • Some people are such crappers. That sweet dog named Lady walked almost 40 miles….40 miles! Fortunately there are good people to make up for the crappy ones.

  • If you are looking for loving and non-judgmental companionship, get a dog…And just know, you will be rewarded by a higher power… for your goodness… as revealed in DOG spelled in reverse, GOD. Some will call it Karma, but whatever you call it…it works, both for and against us. Especially in our treatment of animals.

  • There seems to be wonderful people like (Helen Rich), although having a few challenges of their own, are willing to make the life of a humans or animals with compassion more joyful even if it is for a short period of time…Bless you Helen for the rest of your life.

  • Ms Rich…I just saw this piece and am crying my eyes out….you gave Lady such a good year of her life. May you be blessed beyond this life. Thank you for caring so much.

  • Wow, what a great ending to her story. Lady deserved to have a loving home. All dogs deserve one. I wish that people could experience the special love that dogs bring with them, because once would open their eyes to an incredible truth.
    God bless all dogs and those that love and help them.

  • OMG poor lady๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–she is such a beautiful girl ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œI'm so happy that she found a forever home with a loving family who loved her so much๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™ I'm so sorry that she has past away ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–may her soul rest in peace ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–blessing to you all๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–

  • Never used chewing gum. But I will now, Wrigley's will be my Brand. I live in Apt building with 93 other folks. We can chew in unison !! Bravo dear Lady of lost dogs.

  • I have a dog right now then Iโ€™m desperate for someone to take I am absolutely at my woods and I love this dog to no end but I cannot afford it and it is absolutely bankrupting me at this point Iโ€™d have no other options then to take him to the shelter heโ€™s beautiful heโ€™s smart and heโ€™s funny but heโ€™s not smart enough to stay at my house because he is so big and so goofy that I just canโ€™t afford him anymore

  • Some day the people that treat animals this way WILL BE PLAYED BACK IN SOME FORM. GOD HELP THESE KINK OF PEOPLE.

  • OMG! I REMEMBER this story from when it posted on FB a few years ago! I'm so happy she lived out the rest of her life in the loving home she deserved!. God bless her rescuer! Shame on those who gave up on her.

  • Ms. Rich, thank you so much for your loving care. Those nasty people who's new puppy replaced this old beauty must of had a moral breakdown. They don't deserve ANY dog.
