The Wisconsin Humane Society’s Green Bay campus addressed the dog’s owner with a compassionate message on Facebook. Regarding the dog’s rescue.
The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) is helping find a home for a dog. That was left tied to a fire hydrant earlier this week in Green Bay.
Baby Girl, a nearly 6-year-old mixed breed canine, was found at the corner of East Walnut Street and South Clay Street, according to the organization’s website.
A note from the dog’s owner — identifying Baby Girl and explaining why the owner. Could no longer care for the pet — was found with the dog, according to WFRV-TV.
A backpack filled with food, treats and toys was also left beside the pup.
The backpack can be seen sitting next to Baby Girl. Photos were taken of the dog before rescuers transported the pup to WHS’ Green Bay campus.
Photos of the abandoned pup went viral after locals shared them on social media. And they sparked an emotional response from countless users.
The Pup Stayed Outside for Hours
One resident who posted about the dog on Facebook claims to have “sat outside with her for an hour” while trying to keep Baby Girl warm and “waiting for someone to come back” — but said, “no one did.”
In its own Facebook post. The WHS confirmed Baby Girl is “doing great” while “serving her mandatory stray hold” under their care.
The organization also addressed the owner of the dog with a compassionate message.
“First and foremost, we are so sorry you had to part with your best friend,” the rescue wrote.
“It’s evident just how much you loved her. And we can see you did your best while struggling with your medical complications and life challenges.”
The WHS mentioned in their message to Baby Girl’s previous owner that.” The bag you carefully packed with all of her favorite things,”
“The way you secured her leash so she wouldn’t get hit by a car.”
Baby Girl and Her Future
“We see your love in how happy and healthy Baby Girl looks,” the organization continued, “and we see your love in the note you left, pleading for someone to help her when you no longer could.”
“While we’ll never let fees be a barrier, and we welcome anonymous surrenders, we see that you did what you thought was best for your beloved pup, and we are grateful for your compassion,” WHS added.
“Rest assured that she’s safe, getting tons of attention from our team, and she’s on track to finding her next loving family very soon.
“Addressing those who have voiced their concerns for the dog’s well-being, the WHS said, “We wish you all the best and hope that if you see this, you can rest a little easier knowing your Baby Girl has a bright future ahead.”
Suppose no one claims Baby Girl during her stray hold at WHS. She will be put for adoption at the shelter.
