A volunteer dog walker for years vowed to ensure that Caesar found family.
Doug Sears, a volunteer dog walker for many years, vowed that Caesar, one of the shelter’s oldest residents, would find the loving family he so deserved. He kept his promise.
A dog admitted to an Ohio shelter in 2016 will finally be able to start a new life thanks to a volunteer who walks it nearly every day, WBKN told WBKN this Sunday, Nov. 21.
The great news broke last weekend on Facebook. Five and a half years after being adopted by the Ohio Animal Charity, Caesar finally found a family to join this week. Doug Sears has a lot to do with this.
This man did not just voluntarily take daily walks; he also worked to be accepted.
Doug Sears works within walking distance of the shelter and has volunteered there 5 days a week for years, sacrificing his lunch break to walk the dogs at the shelter. During the day, he appears at the facility, is trusted by one or more sharks, takes them out for an hour, and then returns.
While he enjoys these moments, which he shares with all the four-legged friends he deals with, a special bond has formed with Caesar. His plight especially distressed him, and he vowed to help him start a new life after a painful past.
Jane McMurchi, manager of the Animal Charity of Ohio, explains that for dogs that have a harder time attracting the attention of visitors than others, the costs of adoption are fully covered by sponsors. They usually have special needs: health problems, lack of interaction with other animals or children… Caesar is one of the beneficiaries of this program.
