Dying hope…it is inevitable for a lonely dog who has spent the last two years of her life locked away in an animal shelter kennel run. Her name is Heidi and her daily reality is a small kennel run, concrete floor and a bed – no family or comforts of home.

More about Heidi

Four-year-old Heidi has spent half of her life inside of a kennel at the Hempstead Shelter in Wantagh, New York. Though she receives food, water and shelter, she is lacking the companionship that she needs to thrive. Suffice to say, she is a sad, lonely dog who desperately needs to find a loving home.

Last week, an advocate wrote:

    Heidi looks like she will be a wonderful addition to a home and will slow intros, adjust well. Dogs get scared and the only way they can make their feelings known is barking or biting, so take things slow with a dog like this and Heidi will be the perfect pet in your home.
