Overlooked shelter dog can’t hold back his gratitude when he realizes he’s getting adopted

When he steps out of the kennel...Heartwarming it clicks.


Very often, we speak of the deep impact adoption has on the life of animals neglectful owners leave at shelters. However, our words are pale in comparison to witnessing first hand the joy these creatures feel the moment they get adopted.

Going from a tiny kennel to a comfy home surrounded by people who care is priceless. Luckily, those animals who are adopted are given the chance to experience this sort of unbridled happiness. 

Benny is a shy dog that resided at the high-kill shelter Carson Animal Care Center in California. He would spend all his days waiting for someone to cross his path and take him out of that place. 

He never knew what future held for him until finally the day of his adoption came. 

And his reaction? One of the cutest we’ve ever seen. He just could’t hide the delight and exhilaration that filled his heart when his new forever human came to take him home.

By sharing this lovely story, you help raise awareness of the importance of adopting shelter animals. Who knows, maybe you will be the reason for some dog’s happy ending!
