Gay couple is rescuing a dog who has been abandoned by his owners because they think he is queer.
After his owner observed him boning another male dog, Fezco was abandoned at the Stanly County Animal Protective Services in Albemarle, North Carolina.
The owner indicated he didn’t want a ‘homosexual’ dog and left him in the shelter’s care, according to workers.
Fezco gets along well with both people and other animals, they claimed on their Facebook page, and would undoubtedly make a wonderful pet.
And, luckily for him, it didn’t take long for someone to step forward and welcome him into their family.
“We would want to extend a special thank you to Greater Charlotte SPCA for bringing Fezco into their rescue!” the shelter said in an update, announcing the wonderful news.
“Thankfully, a former adopter stepped forward, and Fezco was ADOPTED!!! Thank you, GCSPCA, for allowing us to do this!”
Adoption story of abandoned dog by gay couple
After hearing about Fezco’s incident, Steve Nichols and his boyfriend John, who have been together for over 30 years, rushed to his rescue. They said they knew what it was like to be discriminated against.
“It’s just such a ridiculous reason to turn in a dog,” Steve told WCCB.
“We just felt it would be nice if a loving homosexual family adopted the gay dog.”
John said, ” “We’ve been subjected to discrimination and stupidity our entire lives together, and we haven’t always been able to do something about it. We exchanged glances and agreed that we could make a difference.”
In an interview with TMZ about the adoption, Steve and John said that they had decided to rename Fezco Oscar in honour of Oscar Wilde, the late gay Irish poet.
In case you’re wondering if your dog humping his friend in the park is a sign of sexual orientation, it isn’t.
‘Mounting, thrusting (humping), and masturbating are natural behaviours displayed by most dogs. According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, whether in connection to other animals, people, or objects.
Dr. William Pressly of Pressly Animal Hospital commented on the situation: “It’s something that all dogs do. It’s a matter of dominance and play.”
Dr. Pressly also advised people to be more cautious and considerate when choosing a pet of any kind.
He stated, ” “You don’t just send them away. Once you get a pet, he stays with you for the rest of your life.”
