According to WQAD.com, a Labradoodle named Buddy was left at the new Henry County Humane Society in Geneseo with nothing but a handwritten note and is now gaining national attention.

The note simply said Buddy had outgrown the apartment he lived in and needed a yard to run in. Buddy's story was picked up by People.com where the note said Buddy was loved and cherished.

In a post on the Henry County Humane Society Facebook page, the shelter says Buddy's story is sad but not uncommon and draws attention to other animals at the shelter.

The shelter is no longer taking applications for Buddy, but there are plenty of other animals for adoption at the shelter by contacting them here.
