Photo: Crying Dog Gets Adopted

An image of a dog with tears on her face moved social media users to get the animal out of the shelter in just a few hours.

When High Plains Humane Society (HPHSN) in Clovis, New Mexico posted a photo of a dog in a kennel with visible tears on her face, they never expected their phone lines to ring nonstop, but that’s just what happened on August 3, 2015.

Like many animal organization do, HPHSN posts pictures on Facebook of animals available for adoption all the time. Some dogs get lots of interest while others reach a few dozen likes.

When the organization posted the image of the crying dog, social media fans reacted immediately. Many jumped to comment they would adopt the dog to get her out of the shelter immediately, and within hours the lucky dog got her wish come true.

Adopted!
Adopted!

While most of us wait to be shown an image that will tug at our hearts, we must remember that shelters across the nation are filled with thousands of animals that deserve a loving home. Don’t wait for a photograph, visit your local shelter and save a life today.

  2. I hope she doesn’t get returned all because a bleeding heart jumped in and got a dog without thinking about it. At any rate I do hope she gets to stay and live out her days happily and bring joy to her new owners. And lets put tears on all shelter animals and get them adopted if it makes people wake up to their plight!

  3. Some Dogs are more sensitive and scared, you could see it in his eyes, did bring tears of joy to know he was adopted.
    However a Dog is adopted to a good Family is a good thing if its a tear or not.

  4. Amen! It is like the story of the man who walked on the beach where thousands of starfish had washed up and were dying, he walked along picking them up as fast as he could throwing the back, someone said why are you doing that there is so many, you could not make a difference, he picked up another one and threw it, then said, to this one I did. We know there are thousands, we may not be able to save them all, but to this one that picture made the difference and a life was saved. Amen

  5. I am SO HAPPY the dog got adopted. We are trying to adopt a English Springer Spaniel, went to rescue site for Florida, fingers crossed, we are physically challenged but LOVE ESS or velcroe dogs as they are known to be. LOVE OUR PUPPY ELLIE, LOVE YOUR PUPS

  6. No animal should live in a shelter. If a picture of a crying dog gets people to adopt then keep the pictures coming. If you want a pet avoid the puppy mills and head for the shelters.

  8. Lord touch the hearts of people who is able to adopt. It’s so sad that they are in shelters for a long time/killed if no one come and rescue them. Breaks my heart. Praying they will all be cared for and into a furever home.

  9. Wonderful! We’d love to learn more about the experience of the shelter that was overwhelmed by offers to adopt the crying dog. Was the shelter able to place many of its other dogs with these caring people?

  13. I adopted a very abused dog two months ago, poor girl is 3 had pups and is heartworm positive. She has separation anxiety worse than any dog I have ever had. But we keep on trying. It’s two steps forward one back. Poor babies.

  15. Hi Monica ~ Thanks. And, we did. Two problems though, either they didn’t want to insure us because of the age of our house (it’s 140 years old), or they wanted three times the premium.
