You’re about to meet an elderly veteran from Delaware who, in September 2015, suffered a heart attack. Due to his hospital stay, the man was unable to care for his two beloved dogs, Bailey and Blaze.
Enter the First State Animal Center and SPCA, a shelter located inside a PetSmart store. The shelter volunteered to take care of Bailey and Blaze until their owner was released from the hospital and back on his feet.
Weeks went by, and the man was still too sick to care for the dogs. Bailey and Blaze were eventually put up for adoption. The man was desperately trying to collect the adoption fees; it was just a matter of time before a new family stepped in to adopt them.
When the owner was released from the hospital, he breathed a heavy sigh of relief. Bailey and Blaze were still sitting there in the shelter. So, he went to PetSmart with every intention of getting his dogs back — but said he still needed a few more days to gather up the $250 in adoption fees needed to do so.
The next day, he returned to the shelter, still needing more time to collect the money. But little did the old veteran know that a huge surprise was in store, and it left him dumbfounded.
