Two lonely dogs take comfort in one another at frightening shelter

Neither dog had ever seen each other prior to having been picked up as strays in San Antonio, Texas. No matter – it’s all the cold, lonely harsh truth of how abandoned dogs really feel when left at a shelter. Their expressions reflected their despair. Hopeless, depressed and scared to death what was slated to happen next, the two bonded together for comfort. Maybe they sensed it; both of them had been on the schedule to be euthanized at the overcrowded shelter.
Rescue Dogs Rock NYC‘s co-founder Jackie O’Sullivan is not unfamiliar with the heartbreaking expressions of the nearly broken souls.
“We took one look at this photo and couldn’t look away without taking action to help these two dogs,” stated Jackie. “We were able to get them to  safety, and they both need extensive medical treatment. Both have been transferred to the organization’s San Antonio vet partner.”
Welcome Barney the Basset hound and Raphael, the shepherd. You will never be alone again.

    Once again, it’s Rescue Dogs Rock NYC who steps up to get these sweet souls. This is why I’ve upped my donations to this organization. They are amazing. Please, folks, even if you can only spare $20, send it to this rescue. They are the real deal.

    Thanks for the millionth time to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC – Barney and Raphael are safe because of you – I have no doubt that they would both have been put down in a heartbeat if RDR had not stepped in – I hope they fully recover and get the safe loving homes they never had.
