Heartbroken Shelter Dog Stops Eating Because No One Wants Him. Then Someone Took This Photo…
Going to a shelter can be a difficult time for anyone looking to get a new dog. We can’t take them all home, and we know that there’s the risk that many of them may not even find their forever homes.
That leads to a lot of cats and dogs being euthanized. One shelter wanted to change that for one dog who had been in the shelter for about a year.
He was starting to suffer from depression and even stopped eating. Named Dozer, a staff member put a sign around his neck detailing his status and uploaded it to Facebook in hopes that it would tug on someone’s heart strings. The effort didn’t go to waste, as Dozer was soon adopted and taken to his new home.
This just goes to show how powerful social media can be in highlighting the plights of animals. Perhaps other shelters can take note of this and aspire to getting all of their animals new homes. Share away, people.
