In the animal world Black Friday means much more than crazy crowds and super savings. Many shelters waive their adoption fees over the Thanksgiving weekend to help the pets in their care find homes for the holidays.
The staff at the shelter knew that Bryan, a German Shepherd with a disability, would have a hard time finding a home due to his condition. That’s why they organized an adoption event, which was sponsored by Best Friends Animal Society and Zappos.com.
In the month of November, Patti and her husband came to the shelter to adopt Bryan. This was a holiday miracle for the Mooers, as they had previously rescued a German Shepherd that had a disability. Their last German Shepherd used a wheelchair when he lost the use of his rear legs.
Bryan has only been in his new home for a few days now, but the Mooers say that he is settling in just fine. Patti told Phoenix’s KPHO News:
“He’s smelling everything. He bumps into a few things but he seems real content,”
She also urged other potential adopters to consider taking in a disabled pet.
“Just go meet them and see if it’s a good fit. They have so much love to give and they deserve a good home,”
