A Precious Dog Was ᴀʙᴀɴᴅᴏɴᴇᴅ At Burger King With A Note Revealing His Heartbreaking Story

In February, a heartbreaking story emerged from a Burger King restaurant in Monee. A precious dog was found ᴀʙᴀɴᴅᴏɴᴇᴅ with a note telling her story. The letter attached to the dog’s collar detailed the difficult circumstances that led to her ᴀʙᴀɴᴅᴏɴᴍᴇɴᴛ and has since touched the hearts of animal lovers worldwide.

Following a medical event experienced by its owner, a dog was ᴀʙᴀɴᴅᴏɴᴇᴅ at a Burger King in Monee. The dog was discovered by a group of individuals who were saddened to find a note attached to his collar indicating that he had been left behind. The letter, which included the dog’s birth date of July 22, 2018, suggested that the owner wanted to relinquish the dog but still wished for him to find a loving home. The dog had been ᴛɪᴇᴅ up just outside the restaurant. The concerned citizens immediately called the police.

“Hi, I’m King. I’m a good boy,” the note reads. “Love to hug and kiss. Birthday July 22, 2018.”

That night, King spent the night at the police station and was subsequently taken to the South Suburban Humane Society the following day. The shelter staff was equally intrigued about King’s history and how he came to be there, but their questions were quickly answered. Shortly after King’s arrival, his mother appeared to share her story.

King’s mother had suffered from sᴇᴠᴇʀᴇ health problems that led her to live with her family while she worked on her recovery. A family member left King behind without her knowledge, leaving her ᴅᴇᴠᴀsᴛᴀᴛᴇᴅ upon discovering what had happened.

“After suffering a major medical event, she had moved in with family and has been trying to get back on her feet,” the South Suburban Humane Society wrote. “Her family member abandoned King without her knowledge, and she is devastated.”

When she found out King was at the shelter, she arrived with his favorite food, toys, and treats. Although she didn’t want to part with King, she was unsure what to do. As soon as she saw King, who was overjoyed to be in his mother’s arms again, she burst into tears.

“It was a very emotional reunion for the two of them,” Emily Klehm, from the South Suburban Humane Society, told The Dodo. “It was evident to our team how much love and affection there is between them, and he was overjoyed to see her. She was sobbing as she was telling me all of what happened.”

As King’s mother recounted her tale, ideas began to form in everyone’s minds. They were sure there was something they could do to help, and it took a little while for them to come up with a plan. The manager of the spay and neuter clinic volunteered to foster King while his mother endeavors to secure a new residence for them both. She expressed immense gratitude to everyone who assisted her. She can now take some comfort in knowing her beloved companion is secure and looked after while she sorts out her affairs. King revels in his foster home, winning everyone with his sweet disposition.

“As the note said, he loves to give hugs and kisses and is a cuddle bug,” Emily said. “It’s obvious that he’s been very loved!”

Cases of ᴀʙᴀɴᴅᴏɴᴇᴅ dogs often evoke strong reactions from the public, but unexpected challenges can arise. The South Suburban Humane Society and the Village of Monee Police Department appealed to the public for empathy and understanding.

The police department emphasized that individuals may hold varying perspectives on this matter but have chosen kindness. They reiterated that King was not ʜᴀʀᴍᴇᴅ and that the profound bond between King and his owner was palpable.

“We know that some of you may have differing opinions on this, and that’s ok, but in this situation, we #ChooseKindness,” the police department wrote.

The story of King is a poignant reminder of the challenges many pet owners face, particularly in difficult economic times. While some people may criticize the previous ᴏᴡɴᴇʀs for ᴀʙᴀɴᴅᴏɴɪɴɢ their dogs, it is crucial to recognize that they likely did so out of ᴅᴇsᴘᴇʀᴀᴛɪᴏɴ and a desire to do what was best for their pets.

At the same time, King’s story highlights the importance of responsible pet ownership, including planning for unexpected expenses and ensuring that one can provide for their animal’s needs. It also highlights the vital role that animal rescue organizations play in caring for and finding homes for ᴀʙᴀɴᴅᴏɴᴇᴅ and ɴᴇɢʟᴇᴄᴛᴇᴅ animals.
