However, James’ stay in the hospital was extended by a few months, and the shelter decided to place the dogs up for adoption. When he came out of the hospital, he was devastated to learn that he had lost his dogs.

Fortunately, the dogs were still not adopted. But James didn’t have the $250 adoption fee to get his dogs back. In desperation, James decided to sell his car to put the funds together. That’s when he received a call from a Petsmart store.

As it turns out, the shelter, which was based in the store, wanted to help James to get his dogs back. Volunteers had come forward and chipped in $5-$10 each, until there was enough to cover the adoption fees.
