Circumstances had changed in Wall-E’s family’s life, and they could no longer care for Wall-E the way he deserved. “He was surrendered by his family because they did not have enough time for him,” Jordan Bader, who runs a Facebook page for the adoptable dogs of MCACC, told The Dodo. “He was very scared. In his kennel, he would bark and bark.”
The shelter was a far cry from a dog hotel, and Wall-E couldn’t keep his toys and bed in his kennel. He was confused and depressed — far from the comforts of his former life and the people who promised to love him.
