Touching Photos of Dogs Shared on Social Media Leads to Multiple Rescues from Animal Control


With the help of social media, and thanks to a poignant photo taken by a volunteer photographer, an entire "album" of dogs who were slated to be put down on October 7 in Brighton, Tennessee, have been saved.

The non-profit organization, Paws and Claws Photography for Tipton County Animal Shelter, posted a photo of a young, female German shepherd mix hugging a volunteer, to their Facebook page and the response from those who viewed the image was immediate - shares and comments began to pour in.

The emotional photo was captioned with the following words:

Kennel D2-female-This girl just sits by her kennel door with her face pressed against the door like she is waiting for her owner

Before the dreaded "E-Day" arrived, the page was updated with amazing news for the Facebook page followers:

It is absolutely amazing what all of you have done tonight! Thanks to your shares and generous donations every single one of these dogs will get their freedom ride in the morning! THANK YOU!!!

On Tuesday, an update about the dog who sparked the initial wave of compassion and good will, was shared with those individuals who were clamoring for updates about her fate:

This girl has been taken into the PAWS New England rescue. Anyone interested in adopting her will need to do so through PAWS New England. She is not going to another shelter, but she is going to a foster home.

Paws and Claws Photography for Tipton County Animal Shelter created the Facebook page, which is managed by a group of volunteers, with the intent of increasing adoptions at the Tipton County Animal Shelter through photography - based on this week's amazing accomplishment, their efforts seem to be working.
