Canine Waiting 7 Years For Adoption Pleads For ‘second Chance’ On Social Media– CBS Pittsburgh
A picture was published on Facebook Monday showing Ginger the Labrador retriever mix sitting in her kennel at Dogwood Animal Shelter in Osage Beach, Missouri.
“Hi! I’m Ginger!” a sign clipped to the kennel read. “I have actually been here waiting 7 years, 9 months, 2 weeks, 2 days. I’m a great woman! I assure! I just need a second opportunity.”
The post by Objective Driven, a clothes brand name committed to bringing awareness to shelter animals and the importance of adoption, rapidly acquired traction, KSDK reported.
Ginger, a 9-year-old adorable and playful pet, entered the shelter as a young person after being rescued from a violent scenario.
Her experiences left her with “medical, emotional and behavioral problems which left her unadoptable for rather some time,” the shelter said.
She finished training, but her adoption has actually been harder due to the fact that she needs to be the only family pet in a home with no kids.
“Thank you for the outpouring of issue about Ginger,” Dogwood Animal Shelter said in a Facebook post Wednesday. “Long term residency for animals in a real no-kill shelter is an issue not special to Dogwood Animal Shelter … The fact that she would be best put in a house with no other animals or little children has narrowed the possibilities, however we never give up attempting.”
With about 30 adoption applications from New York to Canada to Texas, hopefully they will not need to try a lot longer.
