“Over full shelter” puts calm, patient dog at risk of losing his life

Spread the love

A crowded Texas animal shelter has put the life of a “calm, patient dog” at risk. The young, mixed breed dog, dubbed Harvey, has been waiting for someone to love him since June.

The Houston Save Lives is our Mission Facebook page reveals the lack of interest in Harvey:

*UPDATE 7/11: NOTHING YET FOR THIS DOG!! IS SOS CALLING RESCUERS & FOSTERS NEED IT! shelter is overcapacity!! they have 50% more than they suppose to hold!!! some are for EU Monday morning!! 😢
*Update 7/6: nothing yet for this dog.

A prior post about Harvey indicates that he was likely neglected:

HARVEY IS ONE OF MANY WONDERFUL DOGS WHO JUST WANT A CHANCE OF A HAPPY ENDING, FINDING A GOOD HOME & NOT MORE END STRAY** This so well behave dog came on June 22, 2021 as a stray from 77044.

He is calm, patiently waiting for a chance to be loved, to be appreciated, seems he has been neglected for a while, his Heartworm test came positive, we know is treatable, but is easy to prevent!!! We don’t have much info on him, but for now HE IS IN NEED! shelter is overfull!, has so many, is like an explosion of pets unwanted!

Saving Harvey

Eventually, Harvey’s luck will run out, and he won’t be given any further time. Please help him beat the odds by sharing his adoption information.

  1. What a sad, pathetic state of affairs from a country that WAS ONCE on top with ALL sorts of wonderful opportunities just waiting to be found. Now? Nazi’s popping their heads out from places we NEVER imagined them to be, well, at least not so much HERE. Seems our last president made hundreds, if not thousands of thugs feel empowered to bring their true selves out with literally a bang, who had previously been obeying laws for fear of criminal prosecution. SMH. I sure hope we get our shit together fellow Americans, because we are headed down a very dark path, and THIS never ending egregious treatment of animals mainly because THEY CAN’T TELL SOMEONE what’s being DONE to THEM, is just a WARNING of what’s to come if we don’t step up and defend OUR democracy, OUR children and YES, OUR ANIMALS, which embraces RULE of LAW that serves to PROTECT vulnerable populations. It’s NOT yours OR mine, it IS OURS. Think about THAT for awhile.

  2. I am absolutely heartbroken for this loving precious treasure. I am in the Seattle area so I can’t foster. I hope someone local can open their heart and home for Harvey. He seems like a perfect companion for a family or a senior household…… I hope he can be rehomed into a loving furever family where he will be treated as a beloved family member.

    • I just looked for Harvey on Petharbor. He was NLL. What happened?

      NLL can mean 1 of 3 outcomes:
