For several months, 9-year old pit bull, Remy sat in a New York shelter, waiting for her forever home. A combination of her age and breed made it unlikely she’d ever leave the shelter.

That is, until three nuns from Sisters of Our Lady of Christian Doctrine of Nyack visited the Hi Tor Animal Care Center looking for a new furry friend.

The Sisters told News12 they wanted to bring home a dog that might otherwise be euthanized, one that nobody else wanted. As soon as they spotted Remy, with her greying muzzle and gentle, loving demeanor, they knew immediately that she was “the one.”

“She’s a senior, and we are seniors,” one Sister proclaimed. “She’s a gentle dog and seems happy and content and easy to please.”

The Hi Tor Animal Care Center announced the adoption to their Facebook fans last weekend,

Did you ever hear of Divine Intervention? Remy has. Our sweet, senior pup was adopted today not just by one Nun but by three! It is so moving how the Sisters embraced Remy and promised her Heaven on Earth! We certainly believe she will have the best life has to offer. Congratulations to Remy and her new family.

The Sisters say Remy brings a lot of love into their home, filling the void left by their previous dog that recently passed.

“It was hard to find a successor, but we got a good one,” one Sister said through tears of joy. They’ve promised to love and care for her for as many years as she has left on Earth.

It’s truly a match made in Heaven!
