Maybe this little girl's previosu owners thought they were doing the right thing and in the end did, but it broke our heart to see this story.
A sweet puppy was abandoned in a park with the words “free” and “good home only” written on her body in black permanent marker.
According to Sarah Cantrell, office manager and adoption coordinator at the Ross County Humane Society in Chillicothe, Ohio, the Lab-mix puppy was dumped in Yoctangee Park ahead of the Feast of the Flowering Moon Festival, which takes place during Memorial Day weekend.
The owner was found and charged with cruelty to animals, abandonment and failure to license.

Thankfully, the dog, who has since been named Marvella (meaning miracle), is faring well. “She’s healthy and sweet and thankfully did not suffer from heat exposure,” said Cantrell. Many dogs that are dumped do not survive or even make it to a shelter.
