Rumble / Heroic AnimalsWhen Bakersfield-based animal rescue organization No Kill Kern received a call about a German Shepherd living in a field, they knew they had to rescue the poor dog. They headed out to the field and brought their trusty pit bull Lucy along to help them. Lucy is the official mascot of No Kill Kern and a vital part of the rescue team.

Lucy was the one who spotted the German Shepherd in that field and led the team of rescuers to her. When they approached the dog, she ran away; clearly never having experienced kindness.

In desperate attempts to remove the scared pooch from her terrible life, the No Kill Kern team placed a cage with some food, hoping the dog will come for it. Surely enough, they returned to find the German Shepherd inside. They gently lifted the cage and took the dog, who the named Queen, to the safety of their shelter.

Lucy has been instrumental in helping Queen get more comfortable at no Kill Kern. She also helps nervous or aggressive dogs get social, being patient with them and eventually winning them over with her super-sweet personality.

After getting more comfortable around human, Queen was transferred to Marley’s Mutt Dog Rescue to participate in their unique Pawsitive Change program. There, she was renamed Reina and finally got adopted into a loving forever home.
