Earlier this summer in Colorado, 15 French bulldogs were rescued from a feces-filled house where animals were hoarded.

The dogs were brought to the Denver Animal Shelter where they were nursed back to health and given food and medical attention.

But these neglected Frenchies wouldn’t be unloved for long. In fact, more than 100 people lined up outside of the shelter on August 26, 2017, for a chance to be the lucky forever home for one of these adorable pups.

“It’s definitely heartbreaking,” said Brittany, a potential pet parent. “Hopefully, these dogs will be able to find good homes today and places where they’ll be loved and cared for.”

Many people started showing up to the shelter the day before and were given numbers that would be called off. The staff members at the shelter went through every potential family and interviewed them to see who would be the perfect fit for the French bulldogs.

“Us taking them from a horrible situation and putting them into a new and better situation, helping them live out the rest of their lives with a good quality of life,” said adoption coordinatorLauren Nielsen about the rescue.

Those adopting were just as excited as the French bulldogs to get a new family member, especially knowing their background.

“It’s amazing,” one young boy said. “Just the fact that we were able to save a dog that was treated so poorly, I’m pretty excited to go home and chill with my new dog!”
