The Look on This Dog’s Face When She Realizes Her Family Is Not Coming Back Will Crush Your Heart

Sadly, this is the fate millions of animals face every year when they are brought into shelters. Most will never leave alive, because no one will come for them. <3


When the chain link door closed, cold reality sank in:  Electra’s family was leaving her here at this strange, scary shelter, and they were not coming back for her.

Fortunately, the video of her heart-wrenching reaction went viral and she was quickly adopted.  But this is the fate millions of animals face every year when they are brought into shelters.  Most will never leave alive, because no one will come from them.

But maybe you will.  Maybe you’ll be the person who saves a life today.  Even if you can’t adopt, consider fostering.  Taking home one dog or cat temporarily frees up enough space to save another.  Hundreds of animals find homes every day through fostering and networking.

 

 

Electra was brought to the Inland Valley Humane Society & SPCA in California, and was then sent to stay with foster mom Adriane Silvano.  She immediately fell for this blue gal’s expressive face and decided to make it official.

“The first time I saw her – aw! – I just fell in love with her, and I knew it was going to be a foster failure,” Silvano told Fox8.

Now she’s all smiles, wags, and smooches.  Save an Electra by going to your local shelter today!

  1. This is the saddest things ever saw. Your pets are not your pets they are family. I would never drop off my kid at an orphanage nor would I drop off my (pet) dog, cat ect.. at a shelter,

  2. Just by the chain around her neck makes me think she never had a loving home, another example of what the dog fighting people leave behind.

  3. Thankyou so much for adopting Electra her face broke my heart when I saw her I burst into tears thank god for you and your kind heart it affects us over here in the uk and we are powerless o thankyou again ❤️❤️❤️

  4. Her desperate look badly broke my heart.
