Horrible things can happen to almost anyone these days. However, it’s when these things affect the people we are closest to that it hurts the most.
Some families often end up in many financial problems and have to abandon their pets as a result.
It’s not fair, but it’s how the world works, and it’s the best chance they will have at living a new life.
In this story, we will talk about a dog who was abandoned by his family and just checked out from everything.
A Tragic Fate
When Ritter’s family was going through many problems, they realized that Ritter and his sibling had to be surrendered to a shelter.
The Humane Society in Hamilton County, Indiana, took them in with no question, and they were sad to see the state he was in.
He seemed so depressed, like he had completely given up on life. Ritter couldn’t understand why his family left him there – he just knew that he wanted them back.
Unfortunately, that was not going to happen. In order to help raise awareness about this wonderful dog, the shelter workers took a photo of him and posted it on social media.
The photo went viral pretty quickly and it was shared a lot throughout every platform. The people saw this sad dog and expressed their desire to help in any way they could.
Ritter’s New Opportunity
One of the workers at the shelter, Megan, told WISH-TV, from Indiana, that they were lucky to have taken that picture, and that it’s an example of not just Ritter, but every animal who is suffering like him.
It just so happens that this portrayed the best of what so many dogs are going through in their life on the street and in the shelters.
All of these adorable dogs who were surrendered to a shelter have their own heartbreaking reason for being there, and it’s up to us to help them.
However, in the end, all the attention Ritter got through social media meant that he was able to find his forever home pretty quickly, and he now lives an amazing life.
While his sibling was not fortunate enough to find a new family yet, the shelter workers are doing everything they can for him and all the other dogs there.
It’s amazing to see just how much they are trying to help all of the dogs live a normal life with a family who will care for them.
