Hurricane Irma devastated Florida this fall, and people are still dealing with the effects of the storm.
Unfortunately, the storm displaced many people. It also displaced tons of animals, many of them pets who lost their homes just like their owners did.
Of course, some animals found new homes after the storm, like the starving white dog who showed up on a porch right before the storm and was welcomed in.
Although it’s been months since Hurricane Irma, there are still several animals looking for loving families to care for them.
One sweet puppy, who was referred to as Pluto, was looking for his forever home after the hurricane. Sadly, he kept getting passed over.
Potential adopters ignored Pluto because he was too skinny and sad. Eventually, Kellie Rowe, a news reporter in Michigan, got wind of Pluto’s story and decided to share it on air.
Just a day later, Kellie got an email about Pluto that made her smile.
On December 5, 2017, Kellie Rowe tweeted a picture of the sweet dog, and it quickly got a lot of attention.
Within just one day, the post had over 11,000 likes and over 3,200 retweets.
