Dog who survived Hurricane Sandy still waits for a home

See also

In 2012, Hurricane Sandy battered the east coast and one of the dogs who survived the storm's violent lashing is still waiting to go home.

The three-year-old dog, named "Tank," was found in a damaged area in Brooklyn, N.Y., after the storm and he was taken to animal control where he waited for his family to find him.

Unfortunately, Tank's family never reclaimed him and he wound up on death row.

Tank was saved from an untimely death at the animal control agency by Best Friends Rescue, but today, over a year later, he is still waiting for a home of his own.

The following words were shared about Tank a few months ago:

Now a whole YEAR has passed again and it's THANKSGIVING AGAIN! While I am thankful to be alive -- this is NO LIFE for a pet! I LOVE PEOPLE, I am playful/friendly with other dogs; Easy to handle and such a Sweet boy! I’m an AWESOME DOG and PAL!

Please take a moment to network Tank's information - he has waited for a family for far too long.
