Making the heart-wrenching decision to surrender your beloved pets when hard times hit is devastating.
A family forced to move into a shelter, after losing their home last spring, faced the only option they felt they had: to re-home their loving dogs, Sheeba and Missy, who could no longer stay with them.
They believed they’d found a safe haven where their dogs would be loved when a couple stepped up to take them. Although saddened that they would no longer be with their dogs, this was a big burden off their minds, thinking their dogs were in the best of hands while they weathered tough times.
Yesterday, almost one year later, the original owner of the dogs was looking through photos of available dogs at Yonkers Animal Shelter, when lo and behold, she came face to face with her dogs.
Imagine the shock and feeling of betrayal she felt, when the dogs she believed to have been loved and cared for all this time had in fact spent the last year at Yonkers waiting for a new home. Now named Laverne and Shirley by the shelter, they had been found dumped on the road, running the thruway.
This family unfortunately trusted the wrong people and is heartbroken to see that their dogs have spent an entire year at the shelter, but they are still not in a position to take them back. They are hoping their girls will soon find the loving home they thought they’d had all along.
Luckily for them, the dogs landed in a shelter that allows their animals all the time they need to find happiness.

Please share to help Laverne and Shirley find the loving home they should have had all along. It only takes one person to give them the happy beginning they’ve been waiting a year at Yonkers to find.
