“I was in Virginia for some training. At this specific time, a pretty large snow was blowing through. When I was on my way home I heard on the radio that a shelter called Richmond Animal League was looking for temporary/permanent homes for all of their animals, as the staff expected to get snowed in,” imgur user spamwisejamkey told theanimalglobe.com.
He was living alone and thought about getting a 4-legged companion. He decided to visit the shelter and look into rescuing a pup. When he got there, all the dogs had been re-homed.
“It was great, but I couldn’t bring myself to simply leave without even considering what I had gone there for.”
He was taken into a cat room where he interacted with a few kitties there. “The woman who was working, saw that I wasn’t really moved by any of these potential housemates, so she showed me back out to the lobby where they had some younger creatures separated in cages,” he said.
