Dog Saved From Meat Trade Only To Be Forgotten At U.S. Shelter For Years

Town of Hempstead, NY – A retriever mix named Ribbon managed to escape the dog meat trade with his life, but he has since been forgotten in a New York animal shelter. Ribbon is one of the longest residents of the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter where he has been held for over four years.
