Cinnamon was abandoned and tied to a radiator, now she has a chance to be happy

Cinnamon was found abandoned in an apartment. Her owners were nowhere to be found, and she was tied to a radiator. Her leash was wrapped around her neck so tightly, the people who rescued her had no choice to but to cut it off.
After her rescue, three-year-old pit bull Cinnamon was taken to Yonkers Animal Shelter. When she arrived, Cinnamon was so scared she was unable to do anything but lay on the ground and wimper.

Cinnamon spent the next two years at the shelter. When Nancy would take her out to the play room, Cinnamon would immediately run up to plush bed and plop down. Living in a shelter was obviously better than being tied to a radiator, but Nancy knew that Cinnamon deserved to live in a forever home.
