Depressed Dog Who Waited 400 Days To Be Adopted Gets Emotional Send-Off From Shelter

Great Plains SPCA/Facebook

A dog who spent more than a year waiting to be adopted was given a royal send-off when she set off for her new home.


Queen was living at Great Plains SPCA in Kansas for so long that she slowly began to dip into depression, the shelter said.

She was at the shelter for more than 400 days and was constantly overlooked by potential owners.

So Scott Poore, who runs the company, Mission Driven, moved into her kennel to keep her company — and vowed not to move back out again until she had found her forever home.

Poore spent seven days living in the kennel alongside Queen to raise awareness, even decorating his new space and taking her on day trips to get ice cream.

He shared videos of his time in the shelter on his Facebook account, encouraging people to share and find Queen a new home.

A week later, the three-year-old terrier mix was on her way to her new home, so the staff decided to give her a royal send-off.

Everyone was confused as to why she wasn't adopted earlier!

Non-menstruating people of the world, please take note: Menstrual products, generally speaking, do not come in different flavors.

We know the colors and patterns might make it seem that way—and we're a little bit disappointed, too—but no, we are not out here with packs of Starburst-esque pads.

So what could possibly make a server reject the coin they are working for?
