WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WISH) — It’s a happy update to a story that’s touched hundreds of people around the Midwest.
Last week, WLFI shared the story of Timothy Lucas and his dog Moe. The two had fallen on hard times and became homeless a few weeks ago.
“I’m having a hard time finding work,” Lucas said last week. “I have no where to put Moe during the day while I go to work, or even look for a job.”
Preparing himself for a winter at the Lafayette Transitional Housing Center, Lucas hoped someone in the community would be able to take care and shelter Moe for the winter.
Lafayette Transitional Housing case worker Lisa Yates said Monday morning that Moe had found a home in West Lafayette, and won’t be too far from Lucas.
Yates said she’s gotten more than 200 calls from people in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Florida and Ohio offering to take Moe in.
She added a number of companies in the area have reached out with job offers for Lucas.
