    Man Surrenders Dog and Re-adopts Him Again A Year Later

    The poor man fell on hard times and felt that he had to give up his dog to an animal shelter. A year later, after he had recovered, he went to the shelter and, surprised to find that his dog was still here, quickly re-adopted him.

    I can't imagine how happy both the man and the dog were to be re-united!

    Michael Herrick from Independence, MO., fell on bad times last year and lost his job and house, as a consequence he had no option but to surrender his best friend Reece to his local shelter, but once Herrick got back on his feet, he checked the shelter's website and was surprised to see his pet was still waiting for a new home. Without hesitation Herrick went to the shelter to re-adopt and reunite with his four-legged best friend.

    The pet owner never imagined his friendly and good looking dog would still be available for adoption at the Great Plains SPCA a year after he had surrendered him. Reece had been adopted, but that placement fell through and the dog returned to the shelter.

    When Herrick searched the Great Plains SPCA's site he was surprised to see Reece's picture under the adoptable pets section.

    Rachel Hodgson with the Great Plains SPCA said the staff was really excited to reunite the dog with his one and true owner. They "didn't have to worry about the home [Reece] was going to," said Hodgson.

    "'We were able to reunite them, and needless to say, they both were ecstatic to be together again," posted the SPCA on their Facebook wall. "Keeping families together – just one of the reasons #‎whywerescue."
