Moose, a 3-year-old Labrador mix, had a sad back story that Eleventh Hour shared. Moose was found tied to a railroad sign in front of an animal shelter in Georgia in 2017.
“Moose was at that shelter for many months and during that time he had no interest from adopters. This was very unfortunate for Moose. You see, the longer a dog sits at a kill shelter, the closer they get to being euthanized due to overcrowding. Luckily for Moose, a local shelter volunteer was determined to not let that be his fate.”
The volunteer arranged for a rescue partner to take Moose and he was transported to New Jersey where he quickly won many fans among the volunteers.
“We were won over by his happy personality and his love for life. We were all rooting for Moose to find his perfect home. And then one day, his “dad” discovered him and they fell in love. Moose finally had a loving home of his own. The future seemed pretty bright for Moose. But a year later tragedy struck and his dad passed away, leaving Moose in need of a home once again.”
The rescue asked if someone could help “Moose’s heart heal” with either a foster or permanent home.
Moose’s photo and story quickly spread online and the rescue soon received several adoption applications. And within three days they announced “this sweet, loving boy” has been adopted.
“MOOSE HAS BEEN ADOPTED by a wonderful family who will care for and love him for the rest of his life! Here is Moose pictured with his new human siblings (Mom & Dad were a bit camera shy). Thank you again to everyone who shared his story!”
Eleventh Hour revealed that Moose is going to a four-person family who recently lost their own dog of 14 years and wanted a dog they could give a home to. They also are friends of one of the rescue’s volunteers.
