Duke contacted The Dodo in hopes that publishing Benn's story would help her find him, and put her mind at ease. "It's hard not knowing what really happened to him," Duke said. "Benn has gone through so much and I tried so hard to keep him safe and to find him a home ... I just want to know he is OK!"
Luckily, Carrie Libera, content and media strategist for Animal Humane Society, replied to The Dodo about Benn: "I'm happy to report that Benn was adopted from Animal Humane Society on September 23. It looks like while he was here he was treated for a few senior related health issues, but nothing major, and the adopters were informed of how to keep him happy and healthy going forward."
The Dodo requested to hear from the adoption family, and hasn't heard back yet. But Libera is hopeful. "As far as we know, he is still with the family. We ask that if an adoption doesn't work out for any reason, that they bring the animal back to us, and he has not been returned."
We'll update this post if we have more information.
