Two police officers were on patrol in Brooklyn when they found something that broke their hearts. A puppy was tied to a park fence and wouldn’t stop shivering from the cold.
It was raining and everything seemed to indicate that someone had left it there to simply get rid of it . He was a pit bull and he was very skinny. He was surrounded by garbage and with his huge eyes he implored for help.
The officers stopped to help him. They removed the heavy chain that tied him to the park and contacted the nearest shelter .
The furry needed a lot of help and the officers thought that he was now in better hands. Unfortunately, it was not to be.
Officer Pascale returned the next day to check on the pitbull. He couldn’t stop thinking about him and wanted to know what the vets had said about his health.
It was then that they warned him that he would most likely be euthanized.
Many shelters around the world take in more puppies than they can handle. Space and resources are limited. Unfortunately, they make the decision to euthanize the furry ones, whose state of health is more serious or who are considered less likely to be adopted .
The Brooklyn puppy had been unfairly treated for years and shelter managers thought no one would adopt him because he was a pit bull.
Officer Pascale was not about to sit idly by . He decided to adopt him and did not leave there until he managed to complete all the paperwork. He named him Joey and celebrated the arrival of his newest family member with an emotional photo .
The Police Department was very proud of Pascale’s work and posted a picture of her with Levin, the other police officer who had also helped rescue Joey.
“That man is a hero. I wish the shelters would find another way instead of euthanizing the furry ones”, commented a user on the networks.
The brave officer Pascale did his job by taking the poor little dog to where he thought it would be a safe place. However, once he knew that the furry one would not receive the help that he so badly needed, he decided to take matters into his own hands and gave Joey the family that he so deserved. This shows an admirable and true vocation to help others.
It’s unfortunate to know that many puppies are more at risk of being euthanized simply because they are judged for their breed. Everyone deserves the same fate as the beautiful Joey. Share!
