Siblings left to die

Five siblings left to die by their owner

Five young dogs, not even one year of age, are fighting for their lives, through no fault of their own. The dogs are at the Harris County Animal Shelter in Houston, Texas, and already, they are on death row.

Had their owner known that the pups would be killed, would it have made a difference in their decision? Or did these five dogs mean so little that the threat of death had no bearing on that person’s choice to take them to an animal control agency?

Shortly after the siblings arrived, the Harris County Animal Shelter Volunteers Facebook page wrote:

We aren’t even a year old, but we only have hours left to live unless people open their homes to save us.

Would our owners have left us here if they knew it was a death sentence? They didn’t even bother to tell the shelter what our names are…. I guess they never really loved us anyways. Please don’t leave us here to die like our owners did.

Please share the adoption information for these dogs – your effort may be the difference between their life and their death.

7/8-WOOHOO!!!! ALL of these girls left the shelter today with Niagara Dog Rescue!!!! Thank you ALL!! Niagara Could still use people who are willing to foster for a short time as back up!!! Please comment below if you can help!!7/7- Two of these girls (204 & 206) are out safe!! We have 3 more to go!!! We still desperately need a foster for the last one!!!!! Please consider opening your heart and your home to save her life!!!7/3- Well, these dogs are alive, BUT STILL AT RISK! Initially, we thought we had a foster lined up, but that is not going to happen. We are now desperately searching for a foster for these animals again. They can be broken up, they don't have to stay together! GREAT NEWS!!!! Their links are back up!!!! The one male has a confirmed rescue hold!!! We are waiting for confirmation from the rescue that all 5 girls have been tagged as well!We aren’t even a year old, but we only have hours left to live unless people open their homes to save us. Would our owners have left us here if they knew it was a death sentence? They didn’t even bother to tell the shelter what our names are…. I guess they never really loved us anyways. Please don’t leave us here to die like our owners did. If you live in the Houston area and can open your home to one or two of us, comment below and they will *try* to find a rescue. If you cannot foster, please consider donating so a non-profit rescue can save us. 100% goes to the rescue and if we aren’t saved your donation is refunded in full.

    Ces âmes innocentes vont être tuées à cause diresponsables, se n’est pas juste, ils ne demandent qu’à être aimés. Faites leurs une place dans votre vie, vous ne le regretterez pas. De vrais familles seraient les bienvenus pour ces anges. MERCI.

    Pet Rescue report is extremely biased and misleading in their stories. This site does not even bother to determine why the owner left these dogs at the shelter.
    Not every owner is heartless and insensitive. Sometimes owners have no choice.
    Honestly, this site is almost as bad as the left and right wing political websites.

      And what excuse would you say is appropriate for this action? Would an excuse make it ok to do this? They have other choices than to turn the dogs into a “kill” shelter and they obviously didn’t explore any of them. There is ALWAYS a choice to do the right thing. Stop trying to excuse bad behavior! The fact is, no matter what excuse they used, we on this page are trying to save these dogs and don’t really give a sh*t about their excuse!

        Thank you Barkley’s Mom – there is NO excuse to dump an animal – there are always options other than kill shelters – THAT is a definite death sentence.

      David, I take issue with your comment. many owners NEVER give a reason or if they bother, it is generally something like “we don’t have time for him anymore”, “We are going out of town and cannot find anyone to watch him”, We are moving into an apt and they are asking for a deposit, or any other insipid excuse. This many dogs dumped at once is more than likely a backyard breeder who can’t get rid of them fast enough, because they are no longer cute tiny pups. They provided NO paperwork, didn’t bother leaving names b/c they never gave them one!! If you are not in rescue, have never volunteered at a shelter, donated money or fostered, YOU are part of the problem in Houston, which in case you are not aware, has the distinction of being the worst city for homeless, neglected animals and it all falls back on IRRESPONSIBLE idiot human beings!!!

      David if u have such an issue with this site then why don’t u go elsewhere? THERE IS NO JUSTIFIABLE REASON TO ABANDON PETS AT A KILL SHELTER….NONE!!! IF A PERSON TRUELY LOVES THEIR PET THEN THEY WOULD NOT DUMP THEM SOMEWHERE WHERE THEY WILL BE KILLED! THERE ARE OTHER OPTIONS…..THERE ARE RESCUES AND THEN THERE IS THE FACT THAT THE PET OWNER CAN PUT IN THE TIME AND EFFORT TO RE-HOME THEIR PET! The fact that there are FIVE innocent souls dumped to be killed for doing nothing wrong says LOUD AND CLEAR that these sweeties came from someone who is either breeding or has an unaltered dog having pups continually,both of which is inexcusable! EVERY SINGLE ASSHOLE OUT THERE THAT BRINGS IN PETS TO BE KILLED HAS NOT AND DOES NOT EVER LOVED THAT DOG! U ARE NO BETTER THAN OUR LAW MAKERS AND OUR JUDICIAL SYSTEM IN MAKING EXCUSES AND PROTECTING THE ABUSE AND NEGLECT OF PETS!! U ARE JUST LIKE THEM…PLACING ZERO VALUE ON THE LIFE OF A DOG! THEY DID NOT ASK TO BE BORN,NEGLECTED OR KILLED! DOGS JUSR WANT TO BE LOVED AND TO GIVE LOVE,AND MOST IMPORTANTLY DOGS WANT TO LIVE,JUST LIKE ANY OTHER LIVING BEING! WHY DOES HUMANITY THINK THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO PLAY GOD? WITH ALL THE GOOD THAT DOGS GIVE TO IMPROVE THE HUMAN LIFE(ASSISTING POLICE,SEARCH SND RESCUE,COMFORTING THOSE WITH PTSD AND AUTISM.ASSISTING THE HANDICAPPED,GOING TO WAR WITH OUR SOLDIERS,ETC ETC ETC) THE LEAST WE CAN DO IS LEGALLY PROTECT THEM FROM ABUSE AND NEGLECT AND TO VALUE AND RESPECT THEIR GOD GIVEN LIFE! DAVID THOMAS GO TROLL SOMEWHERE ELSE U RUDE,OFFENSIVE JERK!

    I will NEVER NEVER EVER agree with the killing of innocent healthy dogs for being homeless! And I’m so very disheartened by the fact that most of society is! My hands are tied,I cannot afford a fourth dog due to the cost of vet care! All I can do,with my heart and soul crushed, is pray,pray that these poor helpless souls will some how be saved!

    Humans the true animal.

    If I worked at a kill shelter I would be fired on the first owner surrender I would throw the owner in a cage and let the dog go free

    Or I would run after owner with a syringe of the euth meds

    People they don’t spay their dogs they get pregnant and then dump human trash

    I understand but I hate it. Why we have to kill so many dogs. They lose their life cause people are AH. Spay and neuter everything. And people who show dogs add to the problem. But they dont think they do. None of our pups wind up in shelters.. Oh yes they do. I have seen it. Adopt dont shop. Rescue please
