The Scituate Animal Shelter of Massachusetts is looking for the perfect humans for this fur-family trio. The shelter reports that their former owner faced every pet parent's worst nightmare, "their owner loved him dearly," reads the sad but adorable TikTok that was posted on Monday, July 11th, "But unfortunately (he) lost his home."

The trio consists of Sammy who is a ginger and white12-year-old cat, a 12-year-old pomeranian named Roman, and London, a 3-year-old dachshund. A shelter volunteer on Facebook stated,

"They are the sweetest, most well behaved pack EVER! Even the cat is as sweet as can be, and I'm generally afraid of cats! They were clearly loved, and it shows. They would be a great addition to any home."

The nonprofit also hosts events throughout the year to raise additional funds that help with the growing cost of running an animal shelter, as well as contributions to other charities. In Spring 2021, Scituate Animal Shelter of Massachusetts sent a $5000 donation to The Harmony Fund. The Massachusetts-based charity helps animals around the globe and has most recently partnered with Ukraine animal-welfare organizations in an effort to help animal victims of the war by delivering food and veterinary medicine.
