I recently came across a post The Dodo published late last year. It shows the beautiful moment a lucky dog finally realizes he’s getting a forever home.
This particular video comes from a high-kill shelter in Gardena, California, the Carson Animal Care Center. The dog, Benny, looked scared, not knowing what might be his fate, until that red leash went around his neck and he got led out to his new owner’s car. Watching him lose all composure over being able to do the things dogs do–smelling the grass, feeling the dirt on his paws–made me tear up a bit.
Honestly, good luck getting through this video without letting a tear or two come out.
If you want to help dogs like Benny out, be sure to contact your local adoption shelters today. And be sure to visit Snowflake’s Dog Rescue to find out how you can rescue one of Florida’s many dogs in need.
