People who go to an animal shelter with the goal of adopting should keep in mind that the animals there are sentient beings, and any rejection can have a negative impact on their mental well-being.
This is exactly what happened to a dog from the Peaches Bully Rescue shelter in Ohio when the family who had adopted him never showed up.
The puppy was very thrilled to believe that he would finally leave the shelter after a family agreed to start the adoption process and the organization evaluated that they genuinely satisfied all of the standards, but this did not happen.
The couple that adopted him unexpectedly did not show up for the delivery and did not phone to apologize. They just walked away, leaving the beast with its shattered illusions and the vault staff perplexed.
They utterly failed to keep their promise to provide happiness to this small puppy that really needed a home and had been in the shelter for a long time.
On the day of his alleged delivery, the lovely Jack was wearing a leash and carrying a new toy that he would take to his future home, but this was simply a consolation for what had transpired.
“Jack was disappointed when his new family failed to show up or call at the time he was supposed to be welcomed.
“He had showered, had a luxury harness, had a fresh diaper, and a team that travelled 40 minutes, only to finish in a huge letdown,” said the shelter in its Facebook account.
They were so horrified by the scenario at Peaches Bully Rescue that they couldn’t stop themselves from making the event public in an attempt to protect all of the volunteers’ efforts and Jack’s sentiments.
“Please keep in mind that we are all volunteers who are only trying to give this kid the best chance possible. They also noted in the magazine that “not showing up or contacting is a terrible manner.”
Despite their displeasure, it was evident to them that this was not the right household for adorable Jack, and while the puppy was upset, they can rest certain that they did not send him to the wrong location.
That is the only consolation after such a tragic and distressing experience. Unfortunately, the happiness of finding a home for the noble dog was marred by that family’s recklessness and lack of sensitivity.
After the story went viral, the shelter got over 600 messages from people looking for Jack, as well as over 200 adoption requests.
Because Jack has spina bifida and incontinence, he cannot be adopted by just anybody, especially given the disappointment he has experienced. However, the puppy that had been abandoned by others piqued the interest of many animal lovers who know how to love them unconditionally, as they deserve.
