As humans, it’s our duty to protect and love creatures that our smaller and weaker than us. At the very least it’s our responsibility, and a part of being a decent human, not to cause them harm. Unfortunately, some people just haven’t received that memo. Every single day dogs are abused, abandoned, and left to die. Keep reading to see how this pup’s future looked very grim, that was until some good samaritans stepped in to help.Inside of wire cage was an abandoned puppy. Someone leaving a dog locked in a cage in the middle of a park is bad enough, but it gets worse.
Her previous owners wrote things such as “free,” “good home only,” and “I am a gift from God.” The people who found the scared pup immediately called the police and she was brought to the Ross County Humane Society.
“We were all pretty stunned about it. I’ve worked here for three years and have seen quite a lot of terrible things … but I’ve never seen anything like this,” said Denney in an interview with The Dodo.
It was time for the little lady to have a name so the staff at the shelter decided to name her Marvella, which means miracle in French.
“At first we were like, ‘What kind of person would do this?’ I think maybe they didn’t think we would end up with the dog and share her story so widely like we have. People from all across the country know about her now,” said Denney.
Ross County Humane Society updated Marvella’s story on Facebook, “Ross County Humane Society is pleased to update everyone that Marvella, the dog found in Yoctangee Park abandoned with permanent marker writing on her, has been adopted! After sorting through the hundreds of applications we received from across the nation, Linette Wrightsel and her family will be giving Marvella a loving and stable home. We would like to thank Brothers Pressure Washing & Window Cleaning for donating to cover her adoption fee as well as the entire public who has donated to her care! Please remember that in any shelter on any given day there are dogs who have been given away as “free to good home” and are awaiting their forever home, just like Marvella. Please support your local animal shelters and adopt, don’t shop.”
