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.
Someone adopted Ribbon when he first arrived to the United States so many years ago, but for reasons unknown, they decided they did not want him anymore and dumped him at a shelter, claiming that he was a stray.
