Man Moves Into Animal Shelter With Dog That’s Been There For 400 Days
Scott Poore from Merriam, Kansas, went above-and-beyond for a poor dog that had been living in a shelter for over 400 days.
The dog, named Queen, is a 3-year-old terrier mix that is looking for a home at the Great Plains Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) in Merriam, Kansas.
Scott Poore has dedicated his life to helping animals through his organization Mission Driven.
He heard the dog was depressed so he moved into Queen’s shelter to help her find a forever home.
“She is the most affectionate lovable dog I probably have ever worked with. She has tons of energy,” Poore said.
He added, “She’s just gentle. She’s loving and the last couple of months she started kind of losing hope, and that’s what motivated me to do this. I’m not going to let her lose hope.”
He even decided to decorate the dog’s kennel with pictures and stuffed animals to help attract a potential adopter.
According to Mission Driven’s Facebook Page, Queen has yet to have a single visitor even with all the media exposure.
He reiterated that Queen is extremely affectionate and said children under eight years old would make her a little nervous.
He said, “I’m having a blast here at the shelter, but I don’t want to live here for a long time. I want to find her a forever home.”
