To die: Bonded pup and deaf pal torn apart by NYC Housing Authority

In a cruel twist of fate, a bonded pup and her deaf pal have been torn apart by the New York City Housing Authority that restricts pets weighing more than 25 pounds. Who can even count the amount of dogs killed by euthanasia since the city’s inception of the weight restriction law?

And on Monday, one day before September 11 – a day no one will ever forget, Porsha will lose her life at Brooklyn Animal Care Center. For no behavioral reasons, both dogs have been separated from their families and each other. (Her bonded pal Max is not on the list to die today)

A volunteer writes about Porsha.

“Porsha is truly a doll! She is so friendly and sweet. She makes super cute piglet noises when she’s happy. She seems housetrained and walks nicely on the leash. Porsha is reportedly friendly with kids, likes to play with toys and was bonded with her deaf housemate, Max , also at Bacc. She’s a good girl.”

Max # 40223 and Porsha # 40224.

Just heartbreaking: 18-year-old seniors stuck in Georgia shelter

In another heartbreaking senior alert, Abbey and Bogey were surrendered on July 18 by their owner to a Georgia shelter. Abbey is an 18-year-old spaniel mix and her bonded pal is Bogey, a 17-year-old neutered corgi mix. We know these these two seniors don’t belong in a shelter, but here they are at Cobb County Animal Services in Marietta, Georgia – most likely on the look-out for their family’s return.

The Friends of Shelter Animals for Cobb County have posted their plight on Facebook and are asking for help finding these two dogs an approved rescue, a new home or a qualified foster situation. Immediate assistance for Abbey and Bogey is needed:

 “Both have arthritis and other age related health issues. These 2 seniors do not deserve to be stuck in a shelter and need to get out ASAP! Their immune systems probably aren’t great due to their age, so they might get sick here. Please come rescue this old couple!”

Information:

Abbey id# 606701 cage 77

“COAT LENGTH Medium HEALTH Vaccinations up to date. GOOD IN A HOME WITH Children.
Meet this sweet and special senior lady named ABBEY. ABBEY and her friend Bogie were dropped off at the shelter by their previous owner on 7/18. These sweet seniors did not deserve to be dumped at the shelter in their senior years and need to get out of the shelter as soon as possible! Abbey is 18 years old and is a small girl at just 26 pounds. The previous owner reported that she is GOOD WITH KIDS but did not leave any other information. The hard concrete floor of the shelter is no place for a sweet senior to rest. Abbey is up to date on her shots and will be microchipped and heart worm tested upon adoption. She will need to be spayed at the veterinarian of the adopter due to her age. Abbey and Bogie are waiting to meet you in cage 77. Abbey’s ID# is 606701 and Bogie’s ID# is 606700.”

Bonded dogs console each other at crowded shelter by cuddling

Two bonded dogs console each other at the North Central Shelter in Los Angeles, California. Tightly clinging to each other as they cuddle to make sure they are touching each other, they still shiver in fear; the noises from the other dogs, the strangers walking by and the clanking of the metal bowls all add to their turmoil.

Rescue volunteers have limited information about the two terriers, however neither of the dogs have been reported to have been aggressive; they’re just very shy and frightened. Can we blame them?

“I am an unaltered male, white and tan Terrier mix. The shelter thinks I am about 3 years old. I weigh approximately 14 pounds.

Dumped like trash: Abandoned pups waited patiently for their owner to return

A pair of skinny dogs rested on top of two piles of discarded trash in the Oak Forest area of Houston on Monday. When a volunteer with Pets of Oak Forest, a group of animal lovers who help homeless and abandoned animals in the area stopped to help, animal advocates rallied to offer assistance.

“On the way to work and daycare and saw these babies at Glebe and Hialeah. Look like they need some rescuing,” volunteer Pat Williamson posted on the group’s Facebook page Monday morning.

By Tuesday morning, the dogs were secured, but foster homes are desperately needed. The only alternative would be to send the dogs to BARC, Houston’s animal shelter.

Foster homes for these two dogs are desperately needed. The above videos tell their stories. Don’t they deserve better than to have been abandoned with yesterday’s trash? If interested in helping, please contact Pets of Oak Forest Dogs and Cats

Update: Broken and neglected once proud Labrador slated for surgery

Bae was another heartbreaking story of a once proud Labrador retriever as the sad reality of animal abuse and neglect reared its ugly head. Just days ago, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC’s co-founder Stacey Silverstein, was asked to help save two more lives at a rural Texas shelter.

“…She’s a broken down, homeless, neglected dog with a broken back and she is unable to use her back legs,” Stacey explained to the organization’s supporters and followers on Facebook. “Her hind legs are twisted and mangled. How long has she been like this? Dragging her back legs as they continually scrape on the hard concrete. Suffering and in pain? We were told by the shelter where she was dumped that if she couldn’t leave today she would be a mercy euthanasia due to her severe injuries.”

Bae’s transfer to a Texas emergency veterinarian, however was only part of the rescue story. A small black dog covered in mange moved behind Bae. In the organization’s frantic rush to help Bae, the tiny, scared puppy trying to push herself into the wall to become invisible could not be overlooked. She was named Fawn and also had been transferred to the veterinarian hospital.

On Friday, veterinarian examinations revealed Bae, who is only one-year-old, has a broken pelvis and leg; both injuries are “fresh.” She and Fawn are currently en route to New York City where Bae will check into the New York Specialty Hospital and undergo surgery on Monday or Tuesday. She will need two surgeries estimated to cost $5,000.

Fawn and Bae have bonded and afford comfort to each other.  How comforting to know these two rejected pups will now have new lives – all of which they both deserve. To donate to  their recovery:

Surrendered to shelter in their sweaters: Brokenhearted ‘Romeo and Juliet’

Surrendered to Carson Animal Care in California on Wednesday, dressed in their winter sweaters, brokenhearted senior chihuahua and poodle mixes Romeo and Juliet snuggle together to help each other stay brave in a frightening shelter. Surrounded by the loud noises of clanking food bowls, dogs barking and an intercom system that repeatedly calls out for someone to report to the information desk, Romeo and Juliet shiver in pure fright.

The closely bonded dogs – Romeo, 8, and Juliet, also 8-years-old, had been turned into the shelter because their owner no longer wanted to bear the responsibility of caring for them. And although Shakespeare’s drama “Romeo and Juliet” ended in tragedy, it is hoped that these two can find a new home together and rewrite one of the saddest endings. Share their plights with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives.

Bonded seniors sat quietly in shelter lobby as their owner walked away

Bonded seniors Jacob and Isaac sat quietly in the shelter lobby as their owner walked away two days after Christmas. They had no idea what was happening when they unknowingly looked up at their family for the last time. It had been a quick goodbye, and suddenly a lifetime of good memories were gone.  Now the duo sits together in a metal kennel as Carson Animal Care Center in Carson, California. Their family no longer had time for them. What did they do wrong?

Bonded siblings 14-years-old dumped at shelter brings tears to volunteers’ eyes

Shiba and Jesse have spent a lifetime together.  The bonded siblings have been raised together since they were just puppies, what could have happened 14 years later when their owner told them to jump into the car and arrived at the Carson Animal Care Center in California on Sunday? According to volunteers, Shiba and Jesse’s owners could no longer handle the responsibility of their two dogs. Tragically, just like an old couch, one short ride and a bit of paperwork, the lives of devoted companions no longer mattered.

Look into their eyes. The confusion and heartbreak are all that can be seen. Although they are in the same kennel today, that will likely change in a day or two. Carson Animal Care Center does not support keeping bonded pairs together with the thought that the dogs will have an easier time finding a home if they do not have to be kept together. And so, after having lost the only home they have ever had, on top of everything else, they will be separated and their spirits further broken apart.

Three bonded seniors surrendered together at height of summer heat and slated to die

Three bonded seniors watch everyone coming and going by their kennel enclosure; they most likely are hoping their family is coming back to get them. What they don’t know nor can they understand is they were all surrendered to the Carson Animal Care Center in California on Saturday. No reason has been offered why the three seniors were no longer wanted, but does any excuse it make a difference to these dogs if their lives are soon snuffed away? The shelter is full, it is very hot, and they need help quickly to survive.

Injured dogs just meet and find solace in each other at vet office

Two injured dogs became immediate friends and found comfort in each other at a veterinarian’s office in New York City at their very first meeting. Rescuers had never seen two dogs who had endured such neglect and agony respond to one another with such apparent love and comfort.

“They ran into each other at the vet and they would not leave one another’s side. The purity and innocence that live in these two is commendable. They made it…and now they have each other. Little Valentine’s body is still sore and raw but he is coming along; the pain medication is working and he is in way better spirits,” Second Chance Rescue NYC Dogs posted on their Facebook page Wednesday morning updating advocates about the condition of two dogs dubbed Valentine and Moose.  Valentine and Moose

It started with the rescue of  five-year-old Moose late last week who was saved from a high-kill rural shelter that does not allow photos or videos enabling advocates to help these dogs find homes. With Moose’s tragic plight, volunteers were notified that his kennel mate attacked him while eating. Moose did not bite back or even growl; he sat there and took it. As he was being led through the shelter, a pregnant dog lunged and growled at him, and he only offered her his belly.

“He may look rough but he is as gentle and kind as they get, therapy dog type. Clearly a loser once cropped his ears so badly and as a result he has a raging skin ear infection, imagine someone taking scissors to your velvety floppy ears. He has really bad sores, an infection on his bum, he is covered in fleas, has an eye and skin infection.”Valentine and Moose 2

Once he arrived at the vet, he was diagnosed with a severe skin condition, an out of control ear infection and  polyps all over his body, especially on his back end. His toe nails are infected, and he was covered in flea residue. Most disturbing was that most of his teeth were totally rotted out which is uncommon for his young age; he will require surgery for this.  Described as a “low rider pit,” Moose who has a solid disposition despite all he has endured. He is described as an “absolute joy and honor to be around, truly an easy going guy.” Moose will be moving to a foster home for care and will be back and forth at the vet for treatment. Please note three more dogs were rescued that day from that same shelter.

And then came the  rescue of a 10-week-old puppy on Monday. When the organization posted his heartbreaking photo, it appeared as if the defenseless little pup’s face had been shredding away. He had been found wandering the streets in horrific condition, and for days he sat at a high-kill shelter and was scheduled to be euthanized. The rescue organization immediately put out a plea for help:Valentine the puppy

“It sounds like he has some kind of respiratory condition (unfortunately most dogs in the shelter end up with these respiratory infections). He has something that looks like a burn on his face, but may be some kind of severe mange or severe skin infection. His stomach is also raw and has the same bloodied scabs all over it. It looks like the skin was peeled away from his belly. He cries out in pain when anyone tries to touch him. We won’t know exactly what is going on until we are able get him to a vet. We cannot imagine the pain and discomfort he must be in. Please help us pull Sweet Valentine. We would like to save Valentine today and offer his the medical support he needs to get through this.”

And now the two injured dogs have met and their compassion to each other gives all of us a moment to pause and reflect how absolutely perfect is the description that dogs are our best friends – and not only to humans, but to each other in the most crucial times of their lives.
