Two bonded sisters were left in an unfamiliar and frightening situation after their family decided to move and leave them behind. The dogs, Negra and Moneca, were surrendered to the Harris County Animal Shelter in March – their time was limited there and just before the unthinkable happened, someone adopted them.
But there is no happily-ever-after for these sisters. The person who adopted them has sent them right back to the same animal shelter. On Wednesday morning, the volunteer-run Facebook page for the shelter wrote:
7/19- URGENT!! DUMPED AT THE SHELTER AGAIN These girls are back at the shelter. They were returned on July 10th!!! The adopter spoke with us a few months ago, at which time we offered to assist with rehoming the girls…. she refused stating she would never take them back to the shelter….
The volunteers added:
WELL LOOK WHERE THEY ARE!!! UNBELIEVABLE!! We could not be more upset. Their names have been changed to Journey and Ginger and both are Ready To Go!! You could adopt and leave with them same day!! Please help us network and share their post and save these girls one more time!!
The dogs were scared and confused the first time around – it is impossible to imagine their emotional state after being dumped a second time.
