ADOPTED! Living at the Wisconsin Humane Society since APRIL, Firefly has found her "furever" home!

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Some good news out of the Wisconsin Humane Society, and an update to a story FOX6 News first brought you in late November. Firefly has found her "furever" home!

Firefly is a one-and-a-half-year-old American Pit Bull Terrier mix.

Wisconsin Humane Society officials reached out to FOX6 News in late November -- hoping to get Firefly into her forever home by Thanksgiving.

Firefly was living at the shelter since April 2014! Wisconsin Humane Society officials say the average stay on the adoption floor is just 1.5 days.

Firefly entered the shelter as a stray from the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC).

She was adopted at one point, but she was returned to the shelter for financial reasons.

Looking to get her into a good home, Wisconsin Humane Society officials reached out to the Pabst Theater Group, which offered to pay Firefly's $25 adoption fee, pay for a Wisconsin Humane Society dog training class and purchase a $100 gift certificate to Bark & Scratch Outpost for food and treats.

On Saturday, December 6th, Wisconsin Humane Society officials announced via their Facebook page Firefly has finally been adopted!

Firefly's new dad, Wayne recently lost his previous American Pit Bull Terrier "Queenie" when she passed away at 10 years old. Now, he's welcoming Firefly into his home and heart!
