On Tuesday, it will be a final goodbye for Honey. She will take her last breath after being caged at the Miami-Dade Animal Services since April 7, where she has been hidden away in the back. No one has been able to visit or interact with Honey and only a few members of the staff were allowed to take her outside for any exercise.
Honey’s heartbreaking story began here:
“I will never forget that day when I jumped into my owner’s car excited about the adventure we were about to go on together,” Honey explained. “Unfortunately that adventure was not one I expected, but instead it was a ride to a scary shelter and the last time I would ever see my human again.”
Honey was terrified. She had never been left alone in a cage – why were bars there? Why couldn’t she run back to her human? She went from the only home she ever knew to a cage.
“The only faces I could see were dogs like me, just as scared, just as confused, crying in fear. I so looked forward to the volunteers taking me out to the play yard where I could run and and experience some type of freedom, but sadly those moments came to an end shortly after I arrived.”
Honey was just too frightened to fit in with the rest of the dogs, and quickly she was dragged to the back of the shelter and locked in a smaller cage – barely any humans to tell her she was a good dog or that it would all be alright.
“I no longer get to go outside where I enjoyed running and playing. I have all this energy and I don’t know how to react being locked in a cage,” Honey tried to explain although no one seemed to listen or understand her body movements. “It’s taken a toll on me each and every day. If they would take me out I could be the dog I once was, but they don’t seem to care.”
Tragically, Honey has no voice; her life no longer matters to anyone at the shelter. The day her owner surrendered her to the shelter, Honey lost her life, and although she is not a monster, why is she treated so cruelly?
“Now because of my human’s decision to bring me here, I will soon be taking my last breath alone and scared. I wish someone would have given me a chance, but I understand many are probably afraid of me. The shelter portrays me as being a dog with behavioral issues, but they are wrong. My behavior comes from being betrayed, from being terrified, from being confused and uncertain as to my fate.”
Dogs like Honey have been betrayed by humans; they don’t start out with behavioral issues – no one has taught them how to become good canine citizens, and because of this Honey will die today.
“My dying wish is that other fur babies like myself get a second chance in life even if it means I don’t,” Honey bravely admitted.
