It is unfortunate that numerous dogs are compelled to live in shelters for extended periods, which is an unpleasant truth. Bonita, a dog, endured this situation for over a year at the SPCA. Thankfully, luck eventually favored her, and she was able to leave the kennel.
Bonita had to spend 500 days at the Niagara County SPCA before finally finding a permanent home.
The SPCA’s event coordinator, Kimberly LaRussa, stated in an interview with The Dodo that Bonita was brought to them as a stray. It was unknown what her history was or where she came from. However, they observed that no one showed interest in adopting her.
Every person who came to look for dogs ignored her cage, without giving her any attention. The days went by, followed by weeks and months. Eventually, a full year passed without a single potential family considering poor Bonita for adoption.
The RSPCA personnel in Niagara County grew to be akin to her kin, however, following an extended 500-day duration in the shelter, Ray Kinz arrived.
Whereas several individuals show an interest in young dogs or the most fashionable breeds, Ray had an alternative strategy for discovering a canine companion. He inquired about the dogs that had spent the most time in the shelter and which ones were the most advanced in age.
Ray was excited to give Bonita, who had been at the shelter for a long time, a forever home. After a successful introduction, Bonita was finally able to leave the shelter and enjoy her new home! The video below captures this heartwarming moment.
