Every dog deserves a loving home, but unfortunately, some are abandoned by owners who can no longer care for them. This was the case for a lab-mix puppy who was found abandoned in Yoctangee Park in Chillicothe, Ohio, with the word “FREE” written on her fur in black permanent marker. The aʙandonment of this poor pup was shocking and heartbreaking.
According to Sarah Cantrell, office manager and adoption coordinator at the Ross County Humane Society, the pup was dumped in the park ahead of the Feast of the Flowering Moon Festival, which takes place during Memorial Day weekend.
The Chillicothe Police Department spotted the dog and brought her to the Ross County Humane Society, where she was given the name Marvella, meaning “miracle”. The dog’s previous owner has been charged with cruelty to animals, abandonment, and failure to license.
Thankfully, Marvella was not affected by heat exposure and was found to be healthy and sweet. She has since been adopted into a loving forever home.
We hope that Marvella will enjoy her new life with her new family and wish her all the best.
