After Being Rejected For 720 Days, Dog Sits By Himself In Sad Corner Of Shelter
Drools, a 4-year-old Pit Bull-Boxer mix, was brought to the rural Conour Animal Shelter in Monte Vista, Colorado, nearly two years ago.
After seeing his cheerful and extra-snuggly disposition, the employees were confident that the lovely youngster would be adopted soon. Drools, on the other hand, has already been in the shelter for a record-breaking 720 days – and he has little chance of ever finding a home.
Kacey Widetich, a “Relay For Rescue” volunteer, has been caring for Drools for several months and believes that one of the reasons he has gone unnoticed all this time is his lack of exposure. Drools’ “undesirability” is also due to the fact that he grows anxious around other cats and dogs and must be the sole pet in the house.
Because of the constant rejections, Drools’ emotional well-being has suffered. In recent months, the normally upbeat canine has been feeling particularly lonely, despondent, and hopeless. Kacey saw the dog’s waning brilliance right away. She now spends her evenings caring for Drools in his kennel, making him feel loved and protected.
In a desperate attempt to find Drools the perfect home, the shelter has turned to the public for assistance. Drools is wary of strangers at first, but once he interacts with them, he becomes extremely devoted and loving. He enjoys moderate to vigorous hobbies and gets along well with youngsters.
Please contact Conour Animal Shelter or Relay For Rescue if you believe Drools is the dog for you. Conour Animal Shelter is also raising funds to ensure that not only Drools, but all of the other dogs in their care have happy lives and find loving homes. You can contribute to the Conour Animal Shelter’s fundraising efforts by going to their GoFundMe page here. Let’s get the word out about Drools and find him a forever home!
