A Kansas shelter dog Queen made news after a guy packed his belongings and moved into her kennel at the shelter, determined to help her find a home.
Finally, after spending over 400 days in the shelter, the 3-year-old terrier mix found a home fit for a Queen just a week later.
Scott Poore has made it his life’s work to help stray animals. His dedication to matching homeless pets with their forever family is fantastic.
He volunteers more than 50 hours per week at shelters and runs Mission-Driven Goods, a clothing brand. He developed this clothing brand to advertise and generate donations for shelters and the animals they care for.
Poore began networking in the hopes of finding Queen, a 3-year-old terrier mix, a home after meeting and falling in love with her.
Queen, however, was lonely after 400 days in the Great Plains SPCA shelter and began to show signs of despair.
Poore went above and beyond to assist Queen in finding a home at that point.
He packed the essentials and moved into Queen’s kennel. He was determined to share the 10′ x 7′ space with her until she found her forever family.
However, Poore hoped the story would reach that one special individual out there who could provide Queen with the right home, knowing his action would make headlines.
It happened after only one week together. A perfect adopter stepped forward and offered a forever home suited for a Queen.
Queen’s adopter, miraculously, was entirely oblivious of the situation.
Adopter Tony Peluso declared that he fell in love with Queen the moment he met her.
Tony, astonishingly, was utterly oblivious of the national attention-getting campaign to find her a home.
Poore told Fox News, “I honestly didn’t know if I was going to remain there 24 hours or a month. But I was ready to do either.”
However, he did acknowledge that he was relieved that he only had to stay for a week.
“I have to say, seven nights in an animal sanctuary is quite a long period,” Poore added.
Poore, who had been posting videos and updates during their week at the shelter, shared one final video — Queen’s freedom walk:
