From TODAY correspondent Jill Rappaport
It's time again for another wonderful installment of our special segment called "Bow to Wow." Every month I go with my producer Vivian Fel to Animal Care and Control in New York and surrounding areas, and we select four wonderful animals that were abandoned or abused and left at death's door.
It is my mission to find them all loving, permanent homes, and in the four months we have been airing this segment, I am beyond thrilled to report that ALL the dogs have been adopted and are getting an abundance of the TLC they so desperately needed.
For this week's segment, we have found four fabulous females! First, we have angel Angie, a real lovebug whose owner sadly had to give her up because she is now in a nursing home. Next, there is Ginger, who shockingly was left tied to a tree, but despite her traumatic experience, she remains filled with love and affection. Then there is gorgeous Kelsey, who was abruptly given up once, brought to this shelter, adopted -- and given up for the second time, because her owners were moving and couldn't take her with them. Finally, there is little Lola the adorable Yorkie, who unbelievably was left on someone's doorstep! All four of these dogs are so sweet, beautiful, young, and healthy. They have everything ... except a home.
