Dog Waits Five Years in a Shelter to Find a Forever Family
Chester the dog was found as a stray five years ago, now he is finally going home. What a beautiful story!
All it took was a sign saying, "Why doesn't anyone want me? Everyone in the shelter tells me what a good boy I am. So, why has no one adopted me? I promise to be good and love my family. Please, maybe you are my new family. I sit and wait for you." -Chester
Gabby Stroup from The North Fork Animal Refuge League on Long Island put a Facebook post up about Chester in the morning and later that day there were over 6,000 shares and phone calls from around the country and even Australia. Everyone wanted to meet Chester. It wouldn't be until Dana Dorr brought her family in that Chester would find a forever home. Dana said the connection was instant. And there you have it, a very happy ending for a sweet pup. Important to remember this isn't unique. Imagine how many adorable animals are waiting for you to love them?
