Shelter Worker Creates Tinder Profile For Dog Who’s Been There For 3 Years And Gets 21 Matches

by Lindsey Smith
Lindsey is from Florida and has worked in online and print media. Her happy place is Michaels craft store.

Currently, there are nearly 8 million dogs and cats living in shelters across the United States according to Shelter workers want nothing more than to clear the kennels and find every single animal a permanent, forever home.

Miranda Morrison works at Animal Ark Rescue in Columbus, Georgia. Recently she thought up a new way to help get the word out about her favorite shelter dog, Henry.

Poor Henry has been in the shelter for three years. He’s never quite found his perfect match. Instead of trying to find him a home via word of mouth or using Facebook, Miranda turned to a dating app.

Using Tinder, she created Henry a profile — complete with adorable photos — and a fun bio that would attract his forever home.

Keep scrolling to see the profile she made for him. Plus, if you fall in love with him and happen to live in the area, information on how to adopt him is listed below!

Miranda Morrison, a canine behavior and enrichment coordinator at Animal Ark Rescue, thought of a new way to get her favorite shelter dog noticed.

Henry has been at the Animal Ark Rescue for three long years, and Miranda was trying everything to get him adopted.

That’s when she got the bright idea to use the dating app Tinder.

Knowing tons of people use Tinder to find dates, Miranda decided to make a profile for Henry in hopes that he would catch the eye of a dog lover. Miranda shared that he’s received 21 matches so far!

“I like to spend my time on car rides, hikes, or at the river/lake/pool,” his bio stated. “I’d love to meet an active and outdoorsy new best friend to explore with.”

Henry loves playing with other dogs and would be a great match for anyone who loves the outdoors.

Once people started swiping right on Henry to say they were interested in him, Miranda wrote each person an adorable message in a doggy voice.

As of now, Henry hasn’t found his perfect family, but he’s getting so much attention thanks to Miranda’s great idea.

“After a long day, he is content to cuddle up on the couch and watch TV and snuggle with you,” Miranda told Today. “I could go on and on about him.”
