Shelters often have to make tough life decisions on sick and homeless dogs as they lack the resources to provide for their medical expenses. Gregory, a 2-year-old Beagle, had a similar fate looming over his head when he got diagnosed with heartworm.
Workers at Ohio’s Franklin County Dog Shelter were heartbroken. They had no choice but to put the sickly Gregory on the kill-list. But the sprightly dog was filled with such spark for life that they decided to make a final plea for help. They shared Gregory’s story with his euthanasia deadline on social media, and soon, animal lover Joe Kirk came forward to rescue Gregory!
Joe runs a rescue organization with his wife, and is often on the lookout for needy dogs that have lost all hope. The moment he saw Gregory, Joe just knew that he had to save this starry-eyed little baby! So he immediately set on a 2-hour drive to bring Gregory home. click open or arrow to see more.
