The joy emanating from a recently adopted canine named Petey has deeply moved the hearts of those who had long been advocating for his adoption. Originating from a busy shelter in North Carolina, Petey found his way to SPCA Wake last October after repeatedly being passed over by potential adopters. An update from the SPCA of Wake County conveyed his incredible journey.
Being the longest-tenured resident at his previous shelter in North Carolina, even at just a year old, the dedicated staff were keen on offering Petey a better shot at finding his forever home.
Hoping to capture the right attention, SPCA Wake showcased Petey’s photos, longing for the day someone would fall head over heels for him. Their wish was granted only a few weeks later when a family spotted his picture and knew instantly he was the one for them.
Not long after, the family shared endearing photos of Petey cozying up to them and engaging in playful antics with his new four-legged sibling. The highlight was a picture of Petey enveloped in a blanket, donning an unmistakable grin of sheer contentment.
“That’s the look of a dog who realizes he’s found his forever home,” declared the shelter in a heartfelt Facebook post.
According to his new family, “Petey has adjusted seamlessly into his new environment.” He relishes sprawling on the bed, partaking in games of fetch, and exploring the garden. He also loves frolicking with his new fur sibling and any other canine pals he encounters. “Petey has been the perfect addition; he’s not just well-behaved but also incredibly endearing. We’re delighted to have him.”
And it’s abundantly clear—Petey is over the moon to be a part of their lives.
