Pennsylvania – A homeless dog is growing increasingly hopeless with each passing day. Her name is Rosie and she has been sheltered with the Pennsylvania SPCA for more than 643 days.
On Monday, the animal welfare agency posted a photo of the slumbering dog, explaining Rosie’s reaction as the kennel doors opened to the public:
She didn’t greet potential adopters. She didn’t bark or wag her tail. Instead, she just slept and let the people pass by her kennel as they have done for the past 643 days.
Rosie is losing hope, and she is not alone. According to the shelter, adoptions are at an all-time low, meaning every dog at the facility is facing days of loneliness and despair.
The shelter said:
We have wonderful dogs who are passed over day after day after day. And, the truth is, we don’t know why. Sure, in years past the more difficult dogs would wait longer. but still, their families would come.
Now, we wonder where any families are.
Where have all of the adopters gone? Is inflation too high? Is there a lack of pet-friendly housing? There is no clear answer…just an increasingly sad problem.
Please share Rosie’s adoption information and if you are in the position to add a pet to your family, please adopt.
