For two months, Wall-E sat in the crowded shelter, no closer to getting a home than on the day he was surrendered. That’s when Bader had an idea to give the unwanted dog an advantage — by telling his story. And it worked.
“About six volunteers and I run the [Facebook] page and network for the shelter dogs,” Bader explained. “We knew this picture would be heartbreaking and would get a lot of attention, but we had no idea it would blow up like it did. We had so many people interested in him.”
Lynn Lee saw the photo and was so moved that she headed to the shelter to meet Wall-E in person right away.
