Generally, when lost dogs are reunited with their owners, it is a joyous occasion. Sadly, that was not the case for Shadow and Kloe – two dogs who were recently picked up as strays in Long Island, New York.
After the dogs were found, they were taken to the Brookhaven Shelter where staff worked to find their owner – after several days, the shelter successfully determined who Shadow and Kloe belonged to, but after being notified that the dogs were at the shelter, the owner rejected the pair.
According to the Desperate Dogs of Long Island Facebook page, the dogs now sit in their shelter kennel runs, sad and alone; their days are spent staring through bars, waiting for a familiar face to save them from their unexpected nightmare.
Despite their fear and confusion, both dogs have remained affectionate; they are known to offer a paw to strangers who stop long enough to say hello.
Please help these rejected dogs find a new home together – all they need right now is a chance, and love.
