This Animal Shelter Is Going Viral For How They Handled An Owner That Couldn’t Afford To Get Her Dog Out

Jessica Jade works at Santa Rosa County Animal Services as the manager of operations. Taking to Facebook, Jessica shared a story about a woman who came in looking to get her dog back.

“This is Glock. This sweet deaf pup was at the shelter for almost two weeks. Today a woman walks in the door holding some vet records; she is crying as she walks in,” Jessica explained.

“She says, through her sobs, “Can I please have my dog? I don’t have any money to get him out”. When I ask who her dog is, she continues to cry and beg, telling me she can’t afford to get him out.”

“I tell her, “it’s okay, we got you. You’re getting your dog back”. After processing some paperwork, we bring Glock back to her.”

“He was jumping and prancing he was so happy to see her, and she was crying and hugging him. Their love and bond are deep.”

“We provided her with some dog food and a neuter voucher, which she was grateful for. We also learned she had some kittens at home who needed to be spayed and neutered, so we gave her vouchers for them, too.”

“Glock wasn’t a dog who needed rescue; he was a dog who needed to go back to the loving home he already had.”

“Inflexible redemption fees and policies prevent animals from returning to their homes and unnecessarily add to shelter populations.”

“Innovative shelters remain flexible to ensure as many positive outcomes as possible, ensuring animals go back to the families they belong to where they are already loved.”

“I’m proud of Santa Rosa County Animal Services for being progressive, and ensuring positive outcomes as they understand the grand picture of lifesaving.”
