Dog shelters are incredible places — they take care of the animals that other people can’t (or won’t) care for. Although shelters have incredible staff and volunteers, they’re not the same as a forever home.

All pets deserve caring families who can offer them comfortable lives. Unfortunately, many dogs who end up in shelters are there for much longer than they should be. One dog, Bubba Jr., was at the Lewis & Clark Humane Society in Helena, Montana for 94 days.

But then, something wonderful happened. His favorite volunteer brought him home.

The shelter posted a diary entry from Bubba Jr.’s perspective on Facebook — and it got a ton of attention. Within a few weeks, the post had over 84,000 reactions and over 20,000 shares.
