Being placed in a shelter can be a difficult time for any dog. Some of them become despondent and just miserable. That is what happened to Dozer, who was at the shelter for nearly one year. The shelter volunteers wanted to change that for him.
He was suffering from depression and even stopped eating. A staff member put a sign around his neck detailing his status and uploaded it to Facebook in hopes that it would tug on someone’s heart strings. Their effort did not go to waste, as Dozer was soon adopted and taken to his new home.
This just goes to show how powerful social media can be in highlighting the plights of animals. Perhaps other shelters can take note of this and aspire to get all of their animals new homes.
