When staff members of the Forsyth County Animal Shelter arrived at work on Wednesday, they found something they don’t see every day. Waiting for them outside the facility were two dogs in two separate kennels with a handwritten note.
“Take good care of them,” the note read. “Thank you.” It also informed the shelter of the dogs’ names (Simba and Nala), their breeds, a few personality traits and skills, and that Nala was only about 12 weeks old.

The shelter staff rushed the dogs inside and then posted on the shelter’s official Facebook page addressing the former owner.
“To the person who left two dogs outside our facility this morning: First off, thank you for leaving them in a spot where we would be sure to see them right away, thank you for securing them in kennels, and thank you for the note,” the post read. “We are sure it must’ve been a difficult, heartbreaking decision to leave such adorable dogs, and we are equally sure you must be struggling right now to make the decision that this was your only option.”
