After 15 months in shelter Honey is going home

Los Angeles, CA — It took 15 months to find the perfect match, but Honey has been adopted. Honey, a 3 year-old Pit Bull mix, made national headlines on January 19, 2016 when she and five other dogs were rescued from the 710 Freeway. The dogs leapt from a car when their owner surrendered to police after being involved in a car chase that started on the 91 Freeway in Orange County.

Honey was the last of six dogs to be adopted. She is fortunate enough to go to a home with a canine sibling and a great family who is familiar with her breed. A Good Samaritan sponsored her adoption fee.

“It couldn’t be a better situation for her a true Hollywood ending,” said Madeline Bernstein, spcaLA president. “The staff and volunteers at spcaLA PD Pitchford Companion Animal Village & Education Center were completely devoted to Honey’s well-being and they kept her healthy and engaged for the last year and 3 months.”
