On Thursday, the Nassau County SPCA announced that there is one, and only one, dog who is still in need of a home following Superstorm Sandy.
The dog's name is "Bruno," and he is a handsome seven-year-old Rottweiler whose owner was forced to relinquish him after encountering hardships that resulted from the devastating October storm.
For weeks, which turned in to months, Bruno called the Mitchel Field Emergency Pet Shelter, home. The initial plan for Bruno was to join his guardian after he got back on his feet.
But that time never came, and now, the emergency pet shelter is preparing to close its doors - leaving Bruno's future uncertain.
According to Gary Rogers, spokesperson for the Nassau County SPCA:
"Bruno is a devoted dog,"
"He has a strong and sometimes stubborn Rottweiler personality that would fit best with an owner who understands the breed, but he becomes a loveable puppy around the people he really knows and trusts.
He has had a very difficult last few months and we are desperate to find him a happy ending."
According to CBS New York, the temporary shelter is closing its doors this Friday.
Bruno is in desperate need of help right now, please take a moment to network his information to help this lone survivor find the help that he needs.
If you are interested in adopting Bruno, can provide foster care for a short period of time, or for more information, please contact Nassau County Emergency Pet Shelter at: 516-272-0017, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org .
