Just in time for Christmas comes the news that Bela will be going to Best Friends Animal Society Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah.
Bela’s owner, Connie Lay, passed away on Nov. 25. The story of her will exploded onto social media earlier this month. Dog lovers everywhere were unhappy that Lay had asked, in the will, that Bela (named after Bela Fleck) be euthanized and his ashes placed with her own. In fact, the first request in her will is that her animal(s) be sent to Best Friends Animal Society Sanctuary. Based on that, Bela’s future will follow the path Lay wanted most.
