March thought his days at ACCT Philly were over when a family adopted him, offering a glimpse of a happier future. But fate had other plans. The adoption fell through, and March found himself back in the cold, unloving confines of the Philadelphia city shelter. The sudden return left March devastated, sick, and depressed. He retreated to a corner of his kennel, turning his back on the world and staring blankly at the gray wall.

Enter Dawn Timmeney, a local news reporter with a heart of gold. Seeing March’s plight, she took to Facebook, sharing his story and highlighting his potential as the perfect running buddy. Her plea was simple yet powerful: “Imagine all the compliments you’ll get when people say, ‘Where’d you get that great-looking dog?’ Bring the family down for a meet-and-greet, and who knows … I could be running with you before March turns to April.”

GOING VIRAL

Dawn’s post went viral, tugging at the heartstrings of animal lovers everywhere. The response was overwhelming, and soon enough, ACCT Philly had some fantastic news to share: March had been rescued! While he didn’t find a forever home immediately, he was transferred to a top-notch rescue partner committed to no-euthanasia and dedicated to finding March his perfect match.

A NEW LEASE ON LIFE

The news brought joy back to March’s soulful eyes. He was thrilled, knowing he was finally on the path to a loving home. March’s rescue also meant a crucial spot opened up at the shelter, ready to save another animal in need.

This touching story reminds us of the countless dogs like March waiting for their chance at happiness. According to the ASPCA, around 3.1 million dogs enter shelters annually across the U.S. These shelters desperately need more helping hands and loving homes.
