Jami Lassell received a call from her sister-in-law on October 8th with some sad news.
They came upon a dog confined in the attic while clearing out a house in Carbon County, Pennsylvania, and didn’t know what to do.

Lassell intended to foster Remi until she was healthy enough to be adopted, but that plan altered the instant Remi stepped into his home.
