On March 13, Cinnamon and Felix were brought to the Wake County Animal Center (WCAC) in North Carolina after their owner became unable to care for them any longer. They were living together at a home in Raleigh.

The shelter posted a photo of the duo on Facebook and asked the community for help finding them a loving home. The WCAC had one stipulation: they had to be adopted together.

"We have a VERY unique situation and we need your help to find a RESCUE who can take this bonded pair and find them the perfect home," the shelter wrote in the social media post. "They are best buds and are truly bonded; they even sleep together and have been kept together 24/7 except when they eat."

On March 29, Wake County's Animal Control team announced the good news: Cinnamon and Felix will now live out their years together on a local farm.

"We are so blessed to be able to foster Felix and Cinnamon!” said Jacqui Bankes, the new proud owner of the dynamic duo. "As their forever foster, we are excited to keep them together and also integrate them with our other goats and dogs, after appropriate testing and quarantine."

Chris and Mariesa Hughes of the Mr. Mo Project, a nonprofit that saves senior dogs nationwide, has agreed to pay for Cinnamon and Felix's health care for the rest of their lives.
