Homeless senior – he is not what most adopters are looking for

Johnny is a mixed breed senior dog who is sitting in a kennel run at the Miami-Dade Animal Services facility in Florida. Unfortunately for Johnny, he is not the type of dog that most adopters are looking for. You see, Johnny is nine-years-old…he is no longer a puppy, or even a spry young dog, and he is not a purebred.

This senior dog’s challenges

Johnny has no control over his current situation. He has no control over his age, or his breed. Johnny is simply a sweet, older boy who needs a new family to call his own. Days ago, the following plea was issued on behalf of this deserving senior dog:

9 year old Senior Johnny #A1951445 so adorable, gentle and easy going. So much to love about him yet he’s not the kind of dog people goes to adopt😔 he’s older with few age related issues but he can still make someones life very sweet, the perfect companion for short walks and cuddling under a blanket. 

Your chance to help this senior dog

You may not live near the animal shelter where Johnny is being held, but that doesn’t meant that you are unable to make a difference in his life. You can help Johnny find a forever home by taking a moment to network his adoption information.

After months, and death of his brother, unwanted dog moved to top of ‘E-List’

After months of waiting, a handsome dog named Tazz has been moved to the top of the dreaded euthanasia list. Tazz has been held at the Vermilion Shelter in Louisiana for six months – this is not the first plea on his behalf, nor the second. But it may be the last.

Tazz is three years of age and he is described as “calm, gentle and well-behaved.” According to the Animal Aid for Vermilion Area Facebook page, Tazz’s brother already died from complications that resulted from heartworms – he died without ever knowing the joy of a loving home.

How to help this unwanted dog, who is out of time

Advocates for Tazz do not want him to face the same fate as his brother – and he is quickly running out of time. This unwanted dog has been waiting for far too long and now he is on the list that no dog should have to be on. You can help save Tazz’s life by networking on his behalf. Facebook thread here.

Senior pit bull at Miami-Dade gets second chance

Troy, a handsome tan and white senior pit bull is getting a second chance at life. He arrived at Miami-Dade Animal Services (MDAS) on January 5, 2018 and was assigned the number A1925172.  He weighed in at 58 pounds and was neutered. His availability for adoption date was posted as January 9, 2018.

Troy, when he arrived at the shelter in January 2018

According to the Facebook page, Urgent Dogs and Cats of Miami-Dade, a page run completely by volunteers, a plea went out in March 2018, to share, foster or adopt Troy to help him make it out of the shelter alive. Sweet Troy was still at MDAS and so badly wanted out of the shelter that he would cry in his kennel just to get anyone’s attention. He was described by those who knew him as a good boy who craved attention and behaved well with other dogs.

And then, Troy’s luck turned around.  He got an opportunity many senior dogs, especially pit Bulls never get.  A wonderful rescue in California heard of his plight and offered to take him. Unfortunately, it’s quite a distance from Miami Dade, Florida to California but Troy cannot miss out on this opportunity. Money has to be raised to get Troy to safety .

There is a fundraiser for transportation costs on GoFundMe. Any amount will be greatly appreciated.

https://www.gofundme.com/getting-troy-to-safety.

Donations can also be sent via Paypal to Lindyturner@yahoo.com using the friends and family option.

Troy has been a very lucky dog. He has survived being hit by a car, being a stray in Miami, and four months at Miami-Dade Animal Services. If the money isn’t raised to get him to California, he becomes another statistic. A senior Pit Bull who will die because no one wants him.

Frightened dog in Texas shelter has hours to live

On Friday afternoon, a dog advocate issued the type of Facebook post that nobody wants to see – a post announcing that a frightened dog has just hours left to live. The post is on behalf of a rather neglected looking black and white dog named Rambler.

Frightened dog hours to live

Rambler’s advocate writes:

I’m going to die in two hours. They said they don’t want to kill me but at the end I know they don’t care. They won’t remember my name. I was right to be afraid of people. I was right to be terrified of this place. No one was going to come and adopt me. No one was going to come to rescue me. No one wants me and I’m scared to die

How to help this frightened dog

How can anyone help this frightened dog? Networking is known to save lives – sharing photos and contact information on behalf of homeless dogs may lead to a last minute, life-saving reprieve. According to Rambler’s advocate, he dies (in Mesquite, Texas) at 4 p.m.

Information about this dog indicates that he is “scared of everything,” but dog friendly.

Offers of help should be directed to rescues@cityofmesquite.com

For nearly a month, elderly dog has waited to be saved from shelter

For nearly a month, an elderly dog, 14 years of age, has waited to be saved from a busy California animal shelter. The dog, dubbed Orson, has been at the Los Angeles Animal Services – East Valley Shelter since April 19.

Senior dogs should be enjoying soft beds and kind voices…being pampered and adored. But Orson is not being pampered or adored…he is stuck in a lonely kennel run, surrounded by the distraught barks of other dogs who are frightened and confused.

How you can help this elderly dog

You can help Orson find a rescue group, or an adopter, by networking his adoption information. You can find Orson’s Petfinder link here.

Pup seen pleading with his owner not to abandon him at shelter

On Wednesday, Kino stood on his back legs and pressed against his human’s body as if pleading with his eyes not to  be abandoned at the San Bernardino Animal Shelter in California. Shelter volunteer Lois Chisholm was there.

“This breaks my heart. He was begging his owner not to leave him there.”

Tragically an eyewitness in the lobby spotted Kino’s owner swatting the three-year-old terrier while pushing him away during the pet surrender process at the shelter. All Kino seemed to want was to go home and be loved. Despite the dog’s heartbreaking pleas, he was left behind.

#A51405 “My name is KINO and I am a neutered male, apricot Terrier mix. Shelter staff think I am about 3 years old. I was surrendered by my owner to the shelter on May 15, 2018.” This is my PetHarbor link: http://petharbor.com/pet.asp?uaid=SBCT.A514058

“I am at San Bernardino City Animal Shelter, 333 Chandler Place, San Bernardino, CA Telepone (909) 384-1304
They are open Tuesday through Saturday from 10AM to 5PM and are closed on Sunday and Monday.”

A Facebook page with additional information can be followed here. Share this dog’s plight with friends, family, approved rescue organizations and social media contacts. Surrendered pets have no required time limits and can be euthanized at the shelter’s discretion. When Kino was surrendered, he was so frightened he became “nippy” to the staff. And now he is being punished and is only available to rescue organizations.

Rescues please email Jennifer Van Ness, the SBC rescue coordinator, with ID# asap if interested in helping. Email: Vanness_je@sbcity.org

Bewildered senior dog, ‘why did my family leave me here?’

A bewildered senior dog, described as “perfect for any home,” is left to wonder why her family left her at a busy animal control agency in California. The 10-year-old dog, named Tacha, was left at the Baldwin Park animal control facility on May 4 – and though Tacha is described as perfect, she has not been rescued or adopted in the days that have passed.

On May 12, United Hope for Animals wrote the following information about sweet Tacha:

Tacha is a doll. She walks well on leash and has a nice, calm disposition, which is one of the bonuses of taking home an older dog – they’re already gotten the super active days out of their system. She is a total love bug, wants to be a lap dog and just be petted all day long.

Adding,

“She’s super mellow and a bit bewildered by the shelter – she just doesn’t understand why she is here and why her family abandoned her. She likes to lean on you and is good with other dogs.”

How you can help this bewildered senior dog

Tacha’s odds of finding a rescue agency or adopter increase greatly the more that her adoption information is shared. You can help this beautiful senior dog find a new home by taking a moment to network on Tacha’s behalf.

At just 10 months of age, a beautiful puppy has already been let down by life. The pup, dubbed Fiona (ID#A157381), is so upset by her current situation in life that she shakes in her kennel run at the OC Animal Care in Tustin, California.

She was my 1st and last dog of today while at OC shelter today

Terrified in the shelter environment,very sweet and will take treats. She likes stuffed animal toys.

Last call – desperate dog circles kennel trying to escape his fate

The last call has been issued for a desperate dog who circles his kennel run, trying to escape his fate. The dog, a mixed breed dubbed Biggie, was picked up as a stray on the outskirts of a small Texas town. Apparently this “stray” has a microchip which led to his owners – but their response to his plight is nothing less than heartbreaking.

In a Facebook post made on Biggie’s behalf, the truth about his current situation is revealed:

His owners were found with a microchip and do not want him back, “they gave him away.” This is how easy he become homeless. Did they care he is going to die? No. Not their problem anymore.

Biggie was allowed to roam…Biggie was picked up and hauled away to “doggie jail,” and now, he is utterly alone because his family rejected him. Biggie seems to know his fate…he appears to realize that he must get out of the kennel if he is to survive.

According to Biggie’s networking advocate, he is located in Corsicana, Texas. Interested rescuers/adopters should phone 469-537-5850. Facebook thread for this desperate dog here.

Time is running out for beautiful, overlooked dog at busy shelter

Time is running out for a beautiful dog who has been overlooked during his time at a busy California animal shelter. Bryce, a stunning three-year-old German shepherd, has been held at the Riverside County Animal Control agency since April 23 – his “stray hold” ended on May 3 and now he is at risk of being put down.

German shepherds are magnificent dogs – a breed known to be loyal to their owners, intelligent and brave. Undoubtedly Bryce is confused and frightened inside of the animal control agency – he is surrounded by smells and sounds that are unfamiliar and scary.

How can you help this beautiful dog?

First and foremost, networking saves lives. Even if you are unable to adopt, you can network adoption information to help it reach someone who is in the position to help. Access Bryce’s Petharbor listing here.
