Man Dedicates 7 Sleepless Nights At Animal Shelter To Support Dog With 400 Days Of Waiting

What’s the worst thing that can happen to animals in a shelter? Maybe it’s the crushing reality that their hope for a loving home diminishes with each passing day. Imagine being in a shelter for a staggering 400 days, watching your furry friends leave for their forever homes while you remain behind. This was the story of Queen, an adorable dog who spent a very long time in a shelter. But then a compassionate human came along, determined to make a change. He decided to spend a whole week in the bustling shelter alongside Queen, supporting her until she found her forever family.

For 400 days, a small terrier mix named Queen lived in a shelter called the Great Plains SPCA in Merriam, Kansas. Even though Queen was a 3-year-old sweetheart with a heart of gold, she found herself repeatedly overlooked during her extended stay in the shelter. But in September, everything changed when animal activist Scott Poore decided he couldn’t stand by any longer.

Scott is the inspiration behind “Mission Driven,” a group devoted to using fundraisers to support animal shelters. When he learned about Queen’s prolonged stay and her growing sense of despondency, he knew he had to take action and bring attention to her situation.

Upon meeting Queen, Scott’s determination to find her a forever home kicked into high gear. He described Queen as the “most affectionate and lovable dog” he had ever worked with, and his actions spoke volumes. Scott publicly moved into Queen’s kennel, bringing along his essentials and bedding, ready to share her living space.

Scott had one goal in mind: to stay with Queen until she found her perfect match. After seven days and nights, that life-changing moment finally arrived—Queen found her forever home!

Scott candidly admitted, “I honestly did not know if I was going to be there 24 hours or a month, but I was prepared for either. Seven nights in an animal shelter is quite a long time, I have to admit.”

And if you’ve ever wondered, animal shelters aren’t exactly a haven for rest. Scott barely got any sleep during his week in the kennel, thanks to the chorus of barking from fellow inhabitants and Queen’s insistence on waking him every hour, eager to play with her rope toy.

All of Scott’s dedication paid off when a father and son from the Kansas City area came across a report about Queen and her new roommate, prompting them to step up and adopt her.

Scott expressed his gratitude, saying, “I just want to thank them for opening up their home and their hearts for such an incredible dog who deserves a long life in a loving home.” Meeting the adopting family, he was reassured that Queen was heading to the perfect new home.

As for why Scott didn’t adopt Queen himself, he revealed the practical limitations that animal advocates often face – adopting every animal they help would quickly lead to an overflowing household.

“I can’t adopt every animal that I help because then I will have 1,000 animals in my house,” said Scott.

With Queen settled into her new family, Scott turned his attention to the next animal in need, a philosophy that sustains him emotionally in his advocacy work. “What helps me get through the emotional side of my work is I move very quickly to the next animal [who] needs my help,” he shared.

People like Scott serve as rays of hope in a world where animals frequently have no voice. True kindness is demonstrated when one forgoes comfort in favor of the happiness of an animal. Thank you, Scott, for your incredible dedication and unwavering support for these beloved creatures.
