Wait until you hear what social media did for this dog. You know, we all sometimes hate on social media for how much it has taken over our lives, bur when we hear stories like this, it makes us really grateful that it exists like it does. It is a really great way to rally a bunch of like-minded people together for one cause. That is just what happened when the story of Ernie started popping up all over Facebook. The dog was about to be euthanize, and a great many people stepped in and said “no way”.
So what social media did for this dog is essentially save its life. The story is Ernie was at Orange County Animal Services, and was about to put down. Some people working there decided to take to Facebook and see if, one last time, they could get Ernie a home. A loving dog, no one could figure out why it took this long. But as soon as the story was on Facebook, it only took about forty five minutes to find a loving “Mom” and he not only lived, but will live out the remainder of his years in a loving home. A place that every dog deserves.
So thanks social media and Facebook. You gave a dog another chance, and we love you for that.
