Every once in a while we hear the kind of story that takes us all by surprise, and also warms our hearts.
The story of a three-month old puppy, Wall-E, began Friday morning in a cage full of puppies found at a shelter in Sulphur, Oklahoma by animal control officer Scott Prall. After evaluating the space available at his shelter, the cage of puppies were put on the kill list, to be euthanized that same night.
Somehow this puppy miraculously survived being euthanized not once, but twice! Scott Prall and the kennel technicians at the shelter were shocked to find the puppy alive and well after spending a frigid night in the dumpster.
Thanks to kennel technician Amanda Kloski, Wall-E was listed on Petfinder. Marcia Machtiger from Pittsburgh, who regularly advocates for shelter animals, set out to raise funds for the puppy and has received an astounding 2000+ e-mails of support and from people wanting to adopt him.
Not every puppy at a shelter gets a happy ending like this so if you haven't already, look into adopting from your local shelter!
