Two beautiful dogs are growing increasingly depressed at an animal shelter in Wantagh, New York. The dogs, Cody and Fiona, are long-timers are the Town Of Hempstead Animal Shelter, and despite their obvious good looks and friendly personalities, they are not only bypassed time and again, but potential adopters do not even stop to pay them a visit.
Cody and Fiona have their very own Facebook page (Homes for Cody and Fiona) which features videos and beautiful photos, but their social media presence hasn’t resulted in adoptions for either dog.
The likely sticking point for both dogs is the stipulation that they join a home without other pets. Finding an adopter who isn’t already sharing his or her life with another dog can be (obviously!) tough. However, somewhere out there is the perfect home…it just hasn’t been found yet (of note, the dogs do not need to join a household together).
Fiona is described as “super friendly” with people – she is said to be a “happy girl.” Sadly, her happy girl demeanor is beginning to fade with the passage of time. On March 18, a Facebook post made on Fiona’s behalf hints at her sadness:
Here is FIONA getting a lot of love from her buddy, John, and enjoying some quality time with him. Won’t you open your heart and home to her? She is depressed in the shelter and would love a family of her own.
On February 13, a heartbreaking post about Cody’s lack of visitors was uploaded to the dog’s Facebook page:
This 3 yr. old never had a meet n greet at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter in Wantagh, LI, NY and when he was first brought in as a stray, he showed signs of being hit by a car.
Staff and volunteers who know Cody have stated that he loves to go for walks and chase after tennis balls – he is described as “very loving” and a fast learner.
Cody and Fiona could use a helping hand to find their perfect new families. Please visit their Facebook page (click here) and share this article which includes their adoption information.
