Dogs who are brought to a high-kill shelter need a forever home so they will be saved from being euthanized. Since these shelters are understaffed and underfunded, dogs who had not been adopted need to be put down. As most people prefer to buy a dog from a pet shop rather than adopt from an animal shelter, these rescue dogs were left with no other choice but to accept their fate.
The story of Benny is one of the reasons why it’s better to adopt than to shop. He was supposed to be on death row, but his family gave him a second chance to live a happier life. At the time, he was only eight months old and was staying at the Carson Animal Care Center based in Gardena, California.
The shelter announced on their social media page that Benny was available for adoption. Benny hoped that someone would be interested in rescuing him. He thought that he didn’t stand a chance to find a new family who would take him home, but a miracle happened. A family rushed to the shelter to save Benny’s life, and the dog couldn’t be any happier as his wish of having a forever home finally came true.
At first, he was clueless about the turn of events, but as soon as the shelter staff put a leash on him, he realized that he was going to live a new life. He wagged his tail and jumped for joy as he couldn’t wait to get out of the shelter. People who knew about Benny’s story were in tears.
The poor dog flipped out because the happy life he wanted finally became a reality. Unfortunately, there are still a lot of dogs at the shelter who are waiting for a compassionate human who’s willing to take them in.
This special little guy captured the hearts of everyone who stopped by his kennel. He hit the jackpot when this beautiful family chose to take him home. Thanks for all you SHARING, checkout his FREEDOM WALK filled with lots of jumps and tail wagging! Happy life sweet BENNY <3PHOTO THREAD: https://www.facebook.com/savingcarsonshelterdogs/photos/a.172032662969376.1073741830.171850219654287/511316932374279/?type=3&theaterJukin Media Verified (Original)* For licensing / permission to use: Contact – licensing(at)jukinmediadotcom
