Hank and his BFF – a fuzzy purple hippo with no name – were in the need of a home TOGETHER.
“Hank and his purple hippo are a bonded pair, so if you aren’t ready for a 4 year-old chocolate Lab to come home when you adopt your fuzzy hippopotamus…well, sorry, we can’t approve your application.”- The Fox Valley Humane Association of Appleton posted on Instagram.
“The hippo won’t let us get an age on her, but we don’t think she’s quite as old as Hank … They’ve been together a long time though. She IS s̫p̫a̫y̫e̫d̫ and current on vaccines, but does seem a bit ʟᴇтнᴀʀԍιc.”
But there’s something that so sad in hank’s eyes. Purple hippo was discovered nearly ᴅᴇcᴀᴘιтᴀтᴇᴅ. Dr Laura was called in for the uʀԍᴇɴт suʀԍᴇʀʏ.
The shelter announced: “Details of the incident which caused the i̫n̫j̫u̫r̫y̫ are murky, as Hank is refusing to answer our questions. (Yes, we have tried sternly asking, ‘What did you DO??’ but he only looks away with a guilty look on his face), please keep the Fuzzy Purple Hippo in your thoughts.”
Hank met with his court-appointed attorney.
Outside, ᴘʀoтᴇsтᴇʀs showed up at the shelter wearing “Free Hank” signs. They trusted in Hank. “He is innocent”
The chief of police had ᴇxoɴᴇʀᴀтᴇᴅ Hank of all wrongdoing in a post on Facebook page, the humane association announced.
Hundreds of people from all around the world have been following their story via social networks. News had been updated constantly.
He and his hippo were adopted, TOGETHER, leading the shelter to end the story like this: #caseclosed. People waiting for a happy ending for Hank and his bestie were not disappointed.
The fictional legal case of Hank was for spread love and adopting spirits to the world. Deb Lewis, executive director of the humane association said: “Social media has opened doors to us we never thought possible before. It’s literally brought the humane society into people’s living rooms, their offices, their cars.” Hank and the hippo were raising stars.
