In the United States, approximately 3.9 million dogs and 3.4 million cats live in animal shelters. Only about 2.7 of them get adopted – a year. That same number is euthanized – each year. When a dog gets adopted, it is a BIG deal, especially for that dog. Many shelters will call the last walk the dog makes out of the shelter their Freedom Walk, an appropriate name!
In this video, we see Austin taking his Freedom Walk. It is heart wrenching, I found myself cheering the dog on, telling him he will be happier in his new home! You got this Austin, good boy! After a little hug, and some gently coaxing, he made it!
