Two Rescue Puppies Ring In Their Marriage With Huge Town Celebration To Raise Money For Shelter

by Rebekka Spiller
Rebekka is a small town girl making her way through the Big Apple. She previously has worked at Shape Magazine and YouBeauty.com. She loves cozying up under her cat bedding with a new book and is currently involved in a maddening love affair with Ben and Jerry's.

He was her hero from the beginning.

When Lola, a trembling, painfully shy chihuahua rescue, first met Miguel, the two instantly connected. Even though she was a year older than him, he became her rock, giving her a constant protective shoulder to rely on. And now Miguel is ready to put a rock on it.

The pair was adopted by Christine McNeely, the director of HumaneCNY, who jokingly told Inside Edition that the pair were ready to “commit to each other.”

Christine believes that Miguel helped Lola heal from abuse that may have occurred at her previous home. As the two chihuahuas became inseparable over the past year and a half, the fear that seemed to chase Lola around every corner slowly began to fade into memory’s shadows.

“She used to hide all the time but now she greets people at the shelter,” McNeely explained. “He helped her come out of her shell.”

Now, a glowing bride is forever bonded to her best friend and guard dog. But the pair weren’t the only two puppies attending the doggy wedding – the bridal party featured adopted shelter dogs, along with a flower puppy and ring bearer, who are still waiting to be adopted.

The wedding was held at the Liverpool annual carnival in New York. Christine organized it in order to showcase the beautiful bond created when one is given the chance to love, and be loved, again.

Additionally, the wedding raised money towards the shelter, enabling them to continue to provide second chances for other lost puppies.

If you believe in the beauty of second chances, please SHARE with your friends – maybe you’ll inspire a brighter future for someone else!
