This overlooked puppy at an Indiana animal shelter is getting help from an unlikely source and it may be the most heartwarming story of the day.

Imagine how scary it can be for animals at shelters. All the noises from animals wishing to be on the outside from their cages and who just want a home of their own. Parker wound up at the Shelbyville/Shelby County Animal Shelter after being found on the streets. No one ever came to claim him as he sat and waited. Now an incredibly generous donation will change his life for the better.

The Shelbyville/Shelby County Animal Shelter recently received a touching letter
