Sweet old boy, no home of his own

A sweet old boy, estimated at eight years of age, has found himself locked away at the Los Angeles County Animal Control facility in Downey, California. The dog, dubbed Elmer, arrived at the facility on December 3, and today he remains alone…no family has come forward to take him away.

Elmer is a senior Labrador retriever – a breed known for their devotion to people, intelligence and friendly demeanor. Elmer has done nothing to deserve his current confinement – he did not choose to be without a family and a home, and he is relying on the kindness of strangers who will take a moment to network his information and help change his situation.

Old man Elmer needs a home

Please take a moment to share Elmer’s photos and adoption information – the time you take can make all the difference in this old boy’s life.

Neglected dog lost his home and his eye – needs a new family

A neglected dog, who appears to have led a tough life, recently lost his home, and then his eye. His name is Creed and he has been held at the Carson Animal Services facility in Gardena, California, since November 10.

The volunteer-run Facebook page, Saving Carson Shelter Dogs, wrote the following post about Creed:

CREED lived a tough life and showed up with a badly injured eye. He has had it taken out and he’s doing great!! He needs your help to find a home for the Holidays! He is a STAFF and Volunteer favorite. Please SHARE, he’s SO special he needs a FOSTER or ADOPTER NOW.

Creed could use a helping hand to find a new family – a family who will love him unconditionally for the remainder of his life.

Shelter dog couldn’t walk – now he is ready for a forever home

A homeless dog, who has been living in a Georgia animal shelter, is ready for the next phase of his life. Lover, a pit bull mix, arrived at the Fulton County Animal Services facility unable to use his back legs – but he has been given special care and things are looking up.

On Saturday, Fulton County Animal Services posted a video to Facebook showing Lover’s progress, and the shelter noted that he is ready to leave the facility for a foster home (or better yet, a real home!):

When Lover arrived he was unable to use his back legs. With time and care he is slowly regaining strength and now enjoys his outdoor play time. This special boy is ready for his next adventure in a foster or forever home.

You can find Lover’s link at the Fulton County Animal Services website here.

Who’s surprised with this revelation?

‘Denver’ just craves love but no one has come for him at shelter

Denver craves love, but sadly no one has come to the Fulton County Animal Services in Georgia to adopt him. Just a goofy Labrador retriever and Boxer mix of affectionate hugs, there isn’t a moment when this three-year-old pooch turns away from an offer to play or to be hugged.

Here is Denver’s PetHarbor adoption listing.  “My name is DENVER. I am a neutered male, brown and white Labrador Retriever and Boxer. The shelter thinks I am about 3 years old. I have been at the shelter since Oct 27, 2017.” For more information about this animal, call Fulton County Animal Services at (404) 613-0358. Ask for information about animal ID number A499376.

Watch Denver’s video here and share his information with approved rescue organizations, family, friends and social media contacts. You will fall in love. Sharing saves lives.

 

Denver’s story has been shared more than 1,000 times, yet no one has offered to adopt him. Don’t let this sweet boy become a sad statistic. Animal advocate Gary Fromm wrote briefly about Denver’s plight on social media:

Faithful dog waited in park where she was abandoned with harness

Update 12/2/17: Rescued!

A young dog has been homeless for over a month…as is the case with most dogs, she is homeless through no fault of her own. Sissy is the victim of abandonment – and her story is heartbreaking.

A volunteer at the Minneapolis Animal Control is hoping to shed some light on Sissy, and her sad past. She wrote:

“She was found at a park by a woman who was walking her dog. She saw her sitting by a harness on the ground and looking around, but sitting patiently. The woman walked her dog thinking the dogs human was nearby, and an hour or so later there was Sissy, still sitting by the harness where she was dumped off by her owners, with hope in her eyes that they would come back. But they never did.”

 

Sissy didn’t ask to be left alone at a park and she certainly didn’t ask to be a homeless dog sitting alone in a kennel run at a busy animal control agency. Please help Sissy by taking a moment to network her adoption information.

Scared to death pup forces a frightened smile in her shelter kennel run

Update: Rescued!

A puppy, clearly scared to death, somehow manages to force herself to offer a frightened smile from inside of the San Bernardino City Animal Shelter in California. The shepherd mix, dubbed Stacey, has been at the shelter since November 19.

On November 24, the Save SBC Shelter Pups Facebook page, wrote:

Stacey is amazing and very puppylike , forces a smile , scared to death…
STACEY ID #A509708
Available November 29
Stacey is a young, female, poorly treated, skinny German Shepherd mix.

According to Stacey’s Petharbor profile, she has been deemed “rescue only,” likely because of her fear. Please help Stacey find her way to a reputable rescue group by taking a moment to network her adoption information.

After months at animal control, one-eyed stray is losing hope

For months, nearly three now, a one-eyed dog dubbed Duncan, has been locked away in an animal control kennel run. Duncan, a three-year-old mixed breed, has been at California’s Downey Animal Control Center since September 9 and in the time that has passed, he has lost hope that anyone is coming to set him free.

Someone who recently met Duncan noted that the stray dog appears to have given up on ever leaving – the visitor wrote:

He just sat there when I met him. He seems to know that no one is coming for him.

Duncan has participated in play groups at the facility – it was noted that he was “a bit grumpy but doing better.” Please share Duncan’s adoption information and help him find a rescue agency or committed adopter.

Last plea – no offers, no pledges for owner surrendered wiggle-butt dog

A final plea has been issued on behalf of a “wiggle-butt,” owner surrendered dog who is being held at the Harris County Animal Control agency in Texas. The young dog, just two years of age, was surrendered to the facility on November 10 and she has not received any pledges or interest.

The Facebook page, Harris County Animal Shelter Pets In Need, wrote a desperate plea for the young dog, who is at risk of being put down after the holiday:

$0 In Verified Public Donations  + $175 Brilliant Energy Pledge. >>> 11/22/2017 UPDATE: THIS IS A LAST PLEA FOR HELP!!! Has been at the shelter for days with no interest. This dog needed an adopter or rescue group to commit by the end of the day today. No one came  This dog is now at risk of euthanasia when the shelter reopens after the holidays (the shelter is closed Thursday and Friday)!!!!!

The shelter is closed, but this dog can still be saved! The volunteer-run Facebook page wrote:

While the shelter is closed to the public, a rescue group can still alert the shelter they want to save the animal – but rescues need foster homes before they can commit to pull the animal from the shelter (someone who will temporarily open their home for the animal to stay – think of doggy babysitting). Who can foster? If a rescue is interested you will be asked to fill out a foster application through them. A foster could save this animal’s life! If interested please post in the thread (along with where you live).

Watch this dog’s video – see how full of life she is and her desire for affection. Please take a moment to network her information and help her find a rescue group or adopter – before it’s too late.
