Forget about humans — Queer Eye’s latest makeover subject was a well-deserving rescue pup!

For National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day, Netflix set the Fab Five out on a special journey to spruce up the life of Lacey, a 3-year-old dog who was facing euthanization back in Tennessee before being brought to New York.

“Our goal this week is to get Lacey ready to be adopted,” Antoni said.

And just because this lady was a pup didn’t mean that the guys were going to shirk their usual duties.

Antoni baked Lacey some peanut butter pup treats, Jonathan moisturized her paws, Bobby talked about dog beds, Tan helped her pick out a new collar and leash, and Karamo gave her a pep talk — or pup talk, if you will — to get her ready for her new home.

“You probably have a lot of fear of what’s going to happen in the new home. But you don’t have to have that fear,” he told her. “Because I want you to remind yourself, and your new owners of some things, okay? I want you to tell them that you provide unconditional love and support, especially to people who have loneliness, anxiety, stress.”

“And if you ever feel that stress and anxiety of ‘Maybe they’re not going to love me,’ I want you to say this to yourself: ‘I’m a good girl and I deserve love.’”

The Fab Five chipped in to make sure all the expenses for Lacey’s adoption were covered, and also took a minute to remind everyone watching how important adopting shelter pets is.

“It’s not the person who rescues the pet, it’s the pet that rescues the person,” Karamo said.

And in case you’re wondering, yes, Lacey has already been adopted!
