On May 17, an animal activist named Loly Menchaka broke the hearts of thousands when she shared a video of an abandoned pit bull mix, Electra.

ADOPTED ELECTRA IS AVAILABLE NOW FOR PUBLIC ADOPTION. PLEASE KEEP SHARING ELECTRA represents the face os sadness and reality in the shelters. Sometimes I would like to understand owners surrendering their animals and I don't like to judge them but when you see how the dogs come to the receiving department with their happy faces and they stand all proud I just can't understand.. (I'm speaking in general, not sure if she was found as stray or she was an owner surrendered) ELECTRA is available now for public adoption. Hopefully she can leaves soon. Please share so people know she is there. ELECTRA Pit Bull Terrier Mix Age (approximate): 4 years Sex Female Color BLU/WHT Available on: (Subject to change) May 20, 2017 Rescue Date: (Subject to change) May 30, 2017 Control Number: #I1272440 http://ivhsanimals.org/#/animal/978566 The shelter does not disclose updates to me after the dogs are no longer in their care. Please contact them for any INFORMATION and/or UPDATES. Adoptions have to be made in person. Potential adopters have to bring their other dogs (if any) for a meet and greet. Im only a net-worker therefore, i do not have pulling rights. I name the dogs for my personal references, the shelter doesn't know those names so always make sure to ask for a dog by their control number not by their name to avoid confusion.

Here's Electra realizing she's been left at the pound. You can handle watching the video above (turn the sound on if you want to lose all faith in humanity) because you know there's a happy ending.

Thousands of comments poured in reflecting on the sad puppy, decrying the heartbreaking situation and whoever could leave such a sweet animal alone and confused at a shelter.

Fortunately for Electra, and for all the devastated people who watched her video, she's been adopted.

"I just left her ten-minutes ago," Tiffany Tan, the woman who runs JL Animal Rescue in California told new.com.au. "This dog, you will not believe this dog now." Yup, that's her on the right:

The pup that broke hearts across the world when she was left at a shelter by her family has found her forever home!

Tan had rushed to Electra's pound when she heard her story—and later helped her get adopted by a single mom and her 16-year-old daughter.

Now everyone's flooding back to the original video to leave their overjoyed messages for Electra's new situation.

Go leave your own happy comment, and then visit Electra's GoFundMe page. They hope to raise enough money for a "clear the shelters day" of adoption without fees.

Even though Electra's been adopted, the work isn't nearly over. Don't stop until you've adopted 15 happy doggys.

Now she's enjoying the pleasures of Snapchat.
