Orange County Animal Services is finding success in social media as a way to save animals and place them in homes of those interested in adopting.
A recent example is a 5-month-old bind pit bull puppy named Rue, which captured the hearts of hundreds on Facebook. Within a matter of hours, Rue's Facebook post had been shared by almost 200 people, officials with animal services tell FOX 35. The dog received an adoption application the next day.
"When I saw her, I fell in love with her, and it didn't matter that she was blind," said Jacqueline Lipka, the puppy's adopter.
