An orange tabby cat named Romeo and a miniature schnauzer named Juliet were recently found living on the streets together and brought to the City of Chula Vista Animal Care Facility here in San Diego. Romeo and Juliet were initially separated into the dog and cat sections of the shelter. It soon became obvious that these two were a bonded pair, as Romeo began to deteriorate without the companionship of Juliet. Staff reunited the two best friends and decided that not only should they be housed together at the shelter, but also had to be adopted out as a pair.


Check out this sweet video about Romeo and Juliet. We’re happy to report that this special couple had a much happier ending than Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. The two have found their new forever home…together!

  1. I’m grinning from ear to ear inside and out after listening to that story! And it’s comforting knowing the shelter rules were bent in favor of these two special pets. Too often bureaucracies can’t overcome rules. ღ Thanks so much for a feel-really-good story.
