Woman Walks into Humane Society, Asks for 2 Dogs That Had Been There The Longest

Woman Adopts Dogs

This just in...North Carolina had one of the highest numbers of cats and dogs killed at shelters last year, a study found.

"In 2018, 246,000 cats and dogs entered shelters in the state, 167,000 were saved and 55,900 were killed, a study by Best Friends Animal Society found."

Given this statistic, this adoption couldn't have come any sooner. And if this concerns you, then the woman's quote in this story will break your heart and you'll all be crying.

"It's so important to adopt older pets. I'm glad to give them a home for the last few years of their life. They give so much love back."

Yes, they do! Adopting a pet is the single best thing you can do and this woman, Leslie, had room for not one but two dogs. She should be applauded and showered with wonderful notes from the community! The shelter staff sheds tears in the parking lot as she loads the two dogs into her car. The shelter, The Asheville Humane Society, on Facebook shares all the wonderful details.

They introduced Leslie to Sam (who had extensive medical issues, was with them for 6 months, adopted then returned) and Brutus (who has severe separation anxiety, was with them for 5 months, and was originally surrendered to be euthanized at 13 years old). Leslie has a three-story house and two acres of a fenced-in yard where Sam and Brutus will spend their golden years.

Every Shelter Pet's Dream!

Today is the kind of day that every person who works in an animal shelter dreams about!!! 💜 Leslie walked through our front doors and said, "Which two dogs have been here the longest, with the most special needs? I'm here to take them both home with me." 😲 We couldn't believe it! We introduced Leslie to Sam (who had extensive medical issues, was with us for 6 months, adopted then returned) and Brutus (who has severe separation anxiety, was with us for 5 months, and was originally surrendered to be euthanized at 13 years old). We vowed to find these two amazing dogs their second chance, no matter how long it took, and TODAY was their special day TOGETHER! Leslie has a three story house and two acres of fenced-in yard where Sam and Brutus will spend their golden years.As she walked them to the car, Leslie talked softly to these two sweet souls, with their creaky joints and grey muzzles, who have been through so much hardship. She told both Sam and Brutus that they now had a family to love them for the rest of their days. And Leslie assured Brutus especially, who panics when left behind, that he would never spend another moment alone ever again 😍😭 (Leslie, you have a heart of gold!!!) There wasn't a dry eye in sight as staff, board members and volunteers gathered to say a bittersweet goodbye to two of our favorite furry friends!Our Shelter and Adoption Center are so critically full right now that we are **waiving adoption fees for all dogs and cats over 6 months old through July 31.** Sam and Brutus didn't have an adoption fee today... this is what PRICELESS love looks like! If their story has touched your heart, PLEASE consider adopting or spreading the word to help the homeless animals who desperately need our support!This compassionate community and all of YOU make happy endings like this possible. Sam and Brutus say thank you for their second chance. 💜

"Today is the kind of day that every person who works in an animal shelter dreams about!!! Leslie walked through our front doors and said, "Which two dogs have been here the longest, with the most special needs? I'm here to take them both home with me."  

It's no surprise that we also learn from the post this shelter is critically full right now they are waiving adoption fees for all dogs and cats over 6 months old through July 31.

What a wonderful day for this shelter and these two animals that can live out their golden years with a loving family. 

These two dogs now have a second chance at happiness! The rest of their days will be spent with Leslie and her family on a two-acre property!

How wonderful is this woman? We love this one! Please leave a comment below.
