The owner of a dog that Dolly Parton offered to re-home after it was abandoned at Glastonbury, has come forward. In a statement, the Happy Landings animal shelter in Shepton Mallet said:
We would like to let all the supporters of Dolly dog know that her owner came forward and they were reunited this evening. Although we have concerns and unanswered questions, legally we have had to hand her back. [...]
Dolly was delighted to see her owner and vice versa. There were tears all round. We have passed on all medication and the owner will have a programme of care to uphold that was started here with us, which will be monitored. [...]
We understand people's disappointment with this outcome. We did seek legal advice from different sources but had no other option.
