The Story of Henry
As told by Madam President, Dione Marcelo
It was April 15, 2015 when Henry and 61 other dogs were rescued by the Licking County Humane Society from someone hoarding animals in her home. I was the first one allowed into the shelter to pick out my dog. I had no idea if I would find one that I would like or connect with. It was a bit overwhelming to see all the different dogs the shelter had. Puppies, older dogs, many different breeds were among the choices. My heart sank to know that all these puppies needed to find a home.
My eyes immediately spotted Henry as he stumbled and rolled over the other puppies in the kennel area. I was drawn to his clumsy antics and his short little legs. I asked if I could meet the little black puppy with brown markings. The volunteer greeted me with her soft smile and unlocked the door. I followed her into a small room with the furry ball of cuteness. The humane society turned all the rooms into meet and greet rooms that day. They had received a lot of interest by the public to rescue the dogs that survived.
We entered the small room with cheery yellow walls and she turned around and handed me the poof ball. He was warm and nuzzled up my chest and placed his little soft head under my chin, he was at peace. I felt at peace. I felt tears start to stream down my face as I felt bad for him and all the other dogs and what they endured with the previous owner.
Henry and my connection was instantaneous. I knew he would be a great fit for our family and the kids would love him!
