The number of upset and bewildered animals that owners abandon in shelters is astounding. Dogs make up a sizable fraction of the 6.5 million pets that are abandoned in the US each year, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). Thankfully, half of these dogs find new homes, but the other half are either abandoned to live out their final years alone in cages or are put to death to make place for more abandoned animals with a better chance of finding new homes.
Despite having better living conditions than strays on the streets, shelter animals frequently do not get the love, attention, and exercise they require. These canines are excellent for different households because of their wide range of sizes and forms.
Since it showed a puppy up for adoption, a picture of a lady working at the High Plains Humane Society (HPHS) in Portales, New Mexico, went viral. The picture moved the hearts of animal lovers all around the world because the woman looked to be inconsolable.
The sad dog captures the sense of isolation that animals at shelters go through when they are surrounded by strangers. She is looking at the camera and looks to be sobbing as she grips the bars of the cage.
Dogs don’t weep when they are upset, according to animal experts, yet millions of people were affected by her suffering and shared her photo.
Her tears were quickly replaced by an exuberant smile as a kind family accepted the poor puppy due to the voluminous adoption requests.
Seeing a puppy’s adoption photos from before and after brought hope that abandoned animals may find loving homes.
It is essential to keep in mind that caring for a dog is a big responsibility and should not be regarded lightly. Never should an animal experience the sorrow of abandonment.
