Some people walk into an animal shelter seeking out a lively puppy, while others seek out a stunning purebred dog. Sometimes a mixed breed dog will do, but perhaps only if the dog is young, healthy and has striking good looks.
But then there are kind people who know that many dogs are being bypassed by prospective adopters – dogs who are old, mixed breed, sickly, or otherwise ailing. One compassionate woman took it upon herself to seek out one of those hard-to-adopt dogs from the Front Street Animal Shelter in Sacramento, California.
On Friday, the shelter recounted the woman’s act of kindness with its Facebook followers:
This kind woman walked into our shelter and asked who the oldest, hardest to adopt dog was. So we introduced her to Jake.
According to the shelter, Jake is not only a senior, but he has cancer and skin issues. Those problems didn’t deter the woman. The shelter wrote:
Melani came to the shelter not just to find a great dog, but to save a life and give unconditional love to a dog in need. As you can see, it’s a match made in heaven. Please help us thank Melani…People like her are our heroes.
So many dogs are waiting for their own happily-ever-after. For those people who are looking to expand their canine family, please visit your local animal shelter and find your new best friend.
