Alabama Pet Parent Reunited with Missing Dog After Seeing ASPCA Facebook Post

July 16, 2015

We have good news to report in the aftermath of our recent rescue operation in Alabama, where we removed more than 300 dogs and cats from filthy, deplorable conditions at the Lawrence County Animal Shelter. Several victims from this raid have been reunited with their families after the ASPCA began urging those with missing pets to visit our temporary shelter.

Jared A. and his family were overjoyed to be reunited with their pit bull, Rusty, who went missing over a year ago. When Rusty disappeared, Jared put up “missing” posters around the neighborhood and posted pleas on social media to no avail. After the ASPCA shared news of the rescue operation on Facebook, Jared spotted a photo of Rusty. He contacted us, and we were able to quickly reunite Jared with his beloved pet. He then took Rusty home and posted a heartwarming video of his son JC, being reunited with Rusty for the first time.

We’re so glad to see Rusty and other animals rescued in this operation back in happy, loving homes.
