SACRAMENTO – Two local men and their dog “Meaty,” receive an out-pouring of community support after being evicted from their home.

Robert and Juan ended up living out of their car after being evicted and had to surrender their dog, ‘Meaty’ to the Front Street Animal Shelter.

The animal shelter put out an emotional video of Robert surrendering the dog because he could no longer take care of it.

Within 24-hours of the video hitting social media, the community had already given more than $5000 in cash and even a place for them all to live. Gifts also included items for their new home.

Now, Robert and Juan want to do their part in giving back. They never wanted to be separated from their dog ‘Meaty’ and have offered to foster dogs that belong to the homeless with the hope that they too can get back on their feet.
