Hearing stories about dogs getting rescued from danger is heartwarming. These stories give so much hope to the dogs concerned and people who want to restore their faith in humanity. Stories about neglect and abuse have hounded people for so many years, and these rescue stories somewhat overshadow the bad news.
John Hwang visited a kennel at the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center in California to shoot dogs’ photos there. This is in the hopes that he could be instrumental in the dogs’ adoption. John understands that the animal shelter is already filled with dogs. This is why the shelter asks for help for possible adoption.
As John was roaming around the kennel, he saw how cramped the shelter was. During that time, he felt that he should take as many photos as possible so he could help the poor dogs. In one place of the kennel, John saw a dog hunched over in one corner. The dog’s head was bowed down, and the pooch seemed sad.
The sight could not be erased in John’s mind, so he took a photo of the dog. The photographer likewise felt sad after seeing the pooch, so he asked the volunteers about her. The dog’s name was Misty, and she has been at the shelter for quite some time now.
After shooting the photos, John uploaded these on Facebook. He then told stories about each of the dogs. Misty’s story caught many citizens’ hearts, and potential adopters began to pour in for the dog.
The volunteers got overwhelmed by the many applications they received. They shortlisted the applications and gave the dog’s custody to the rightful and most deserving person. The pooch is now in a comfortable house and is being well taken care of by her new fur parent.
Don’t let rescue dogs die and go and buy one from a ‘reputable’ breeder.
