A Kansas City man is now shacking up with a shelter dog in an effort to help get her adopted.

Scott Poore left corporate America behind, and he has dedicated his life to animals- volunteering more than 50 hours a week in animal shelters. And when he’s not volunteering, he’s working hard to bring hope to shelters across his community. He does all of this incredible work through his organization – Mission Driven.

Poore has been shacking up with a 3-year-old terrier mix named Queen at the Great Plains SPCA in Merriam, Kansas since Tuesday, but plans to stay until he finds her the ‘perfect home’.

He hopes by living with her, and bringing attention to her story, Queen will have an easier time getting adopted.

“I’m gonna stay here until we find her not just a home, but the perfect home,” Poore said in a Facebook video announcing his decision to move into the shelter.

“She wants a best human friend,” he said. “It’s all about Queen.”

Queen has been living at the shelter for more than 400 days, the longest of animal any there, and, according to Poore, hasn’t had the easiest upbringing. She was found living behind a dumpster in “a terrible area.”

But since living at the shelter, she’s received the appropriate medical care and is ready to move in with a family.

He can’t for the life of him figure out exactly why she’s not getting adopted, but thinks it could be “a freak situation after a string of bad luck.”

“She’s the world’s sweetest dog,” Poore told ABC News on Thursday. “She’s not aggressive. She’s not mean.”

While he’s well-aware that people want him to take in Queen, he has no plans to adopt her as of right now.

“Everybody wants me to but everybody who knows me knows this is what I do,” he said. “I’ve got a dog at home that’s very special to me and I bring a different dog home every night from the shelter, so I’ve got a great system.”

“I’m in the business of exporting, not importing,” Poore added.

He hopes a kind and gentle soul will come forward soon as the shelter life has been weighing on Queen, like it does most animals.

“She’s just been slowly declining in the shelter environment because I see her every day I’ve noticed those changes,” Poore told KMBC. “Queen is really speaking for all long term shelter dogs and shelter cats, they’re kind of the forgotten ones.”
