Meet Guapo, the sad dog of Orange County Animal Services.
He was the first person to appear in a video posted on the organization’s Facebook page. It was also the face that prompted a thousand people to visit their refuge.
They shared a video of abandoned animals – dogs and cats – along with a devastating, soul-crushing message about a reality they confront every day.
“Every sad face reflects the effects of all those surrenders.” We can see the anguish. These creatures have no idea what they done wrong. They have no idea why they are here. All they know is that one minute they were happy and comfortable, and the next they find themselves in a strange and terrible environment. They are missing their owners. They are homesick.”
They received several requests regarding Guapo after posting the video.
The shelter informed FOX 35 Orlando that after they released the video, “dozens” of people came in, and they also received a lot of emails. For a 2-second exposure, the response was astounding.
They say his visage captivated most hearts because his eyes expressed his soul – heartbroken and perplexed as to why he was surrendered. It said a lot to individuals who wanted to help this poor creature.
He was soon adopted and given the name Rosco.
Orange County Animal Services sent an update on his status, and you can notice the difference in his temperament when he visited his new family. Even in the video, you can see how joyful he was.
Rosco gently smiled and wagged his tail, all indicators of optimism, happiness, and better days ahead. They also provided an update on Rosco’s progress in his new home, as well as a photo of him snuggling with his new sibling. He had a safe place to live.
Through Rosco’s narrative, the shelter conveyed two powerful themes.
For one thing, they asked people to understand that adopting or purchasing an animal is a commitment and that they plan to keep them.
The second option was to continue assisting other animals by adopting others from their shelter. They stated they weren’t as sad as Rosco, but they were just as depressed.
Below is the video that made Guapo/Rosco famous!
