When hundreds of thousands of people watched her story this week, of a rescue dog waiting seven years to be adopted has earned an outpouring of support.
“Hallo! My name is Ginger! “The sign was clipped to read the kennel. “I had been here waiting seven years, nine months, two weeks, two days. I’m a nice guy! I’ll promise you!
The post soon gained popularity, with people far and wide showing support for Ginger as the post was shared more than 32,000 times on Facebook. Then, the post was shared by PawsUp, an Instagram account that Ellen DeGeneres launched to publicize adoptable pets.
Once the story went viral, requests for adoption have been coming in from all over the world and finally, after seven long years of waiting, Ginger has reached her home forever.
Dogwood Animal Shelter in Osage Beach, Missouri reported Friday afternoon that Ginger was adopted by somebody who has Ginger-like experience with dogs and lives in a home ideal for the very good girl.
A posted photo on Facebook shows Ginger, happily sitting outside the shelter next to her new person.
Those who urged us on and held the hope that Ginger will eventually have the warm, safe home she deserves are so thankful!” the shelter posted on Facebook.
