Davoyen stopped to talk to Aaron, and after hearing his story, he knew he had to do something to help. He immediately went into the nearest store and came out with bags of dog food and groceries for the two of them. Davoyen began calling every shelter in the area to see if any would take Shadow along with his dad, but they all turned him down.
Knowing that Aaron would never let Shadow, who he'd had since she was a puppy, be taken from him, Davoyen helped set Aaron up in a pet-friendly hotel room. Now A Way for a Stray is working to raise money to find Aaron and Shadow a permanent solution.
The rescue shared the story on Facebook along with an impassioned plea: "How can we encourage people to keep their pets when no one is willing to help those that do not want to give up on their loved ones?"
