All dogs deserve a loving family, even those who haven’t found one yet or have been abandoned by their owners. Unfortunately, some people choose to dump their furry friends without any explanation. Recently, a dog was found locked inside a wire cage in a city park in Chillicothe, Ohio. The only indication of her owner were the hand-scrawled messages written in black permanent marker on her white fur. One side of her body read “FREE” while the other said “I am a gift from God”. Her forehead bore the message “Good home only”. Thankfully, the kind people who found her immediately called the police, and she was taken in by the Ross County Humane Society. They named her Marvella, which means “miracle” in French, and promised to care for her until she finds a new, loving home. Remember, every dog deserves a happy life with a loving family.
Sarah Cantrell, the office manager and adoption coordinator at Ross County Humane Society in Chillicothe, Ohio, shared that during the Memorial Day weekend’s Feast of the Flowering Moon Festival, a dog was abandoned in Yoctangee Park. The pup was taken in by the humane society and given the name Marvella. The staff was shocked because they had never encountered a situation like this before.
Although the labels may appear uncivilized and disparaging, the real concern lies in the fact that the canine was abandoned outdoors during the onset of summer. Sarah states that several deserted dogs fail to endure the consequences of being left to fend for themselves.
It’s truly remarkable how animals can bounce back after facing adversity. With the right kind of care, support, and love, they can recover and go on to live fulfilling lives. These furry friends can teach us a lesson about the importance of showing compassion and empathy towards them. We must continue to fight against animal cruelty by adopting from shelters, supporting animal welfare organizations, and reporting cases of animal abuse or neglect. Together, we can create a world where animals are treated with dignity, respect, and care.
