Las Vegas, NV – A senior dog named Lucy spent her days staring out the window of a Las Vegas animal shelter…waiting for someone to choose her to be their companion. Things looked bleak for the lonesome dog until the Animal Foundation issued a plea on her behalf on social media.
On December 29, the animal welfare agency Tweeted about Lucy’s plight.
And that social media nudge was just what was needed to get Lucy the attention she needed to find a home. Not long after Lucy’s situation hit Twitter and Facebook, the rescue group let everyone know that she had been adopted.
While social media may be considered to be the bane of existence for many, it remains an invaluable asset to homeless pets waiting for their chance to be loved.
