Bonded pair deserted at 14-years-old in desperate need of help

When their family moved, Oscar and Boba were deserted and sent to Carson Animal Care in California. The 14-year-old bonded dogs had never been away from their home or their family. And if life couldn’t throw any more lemons at these two sweet dogs, the shelter separated them – each in a different building. Neither one knows where the other dog is – neither one can be comforted by each other.

“#A5219560 My name is OSCAR and I’m an approximately 14 year old male Dachshund. I am not yet neutered. I have been at the Carson Animal Care Center since 9/16. I will be available on 9/16. You can visit me at my temporary home at C230. My former family who owned me for had to give me up because they were moving.”

These unlikely friends are too adorable for words

A ‘village’ of rescuers saved shelter dachshund from euthanasia

“It takes a village to raise a child,” may have become a popular proverb, but no doubt it took a village to enable the rescue of a dachshund surrendered by his owner who ordered the dog euthanized by Devore Animal Shelter.

According to the owner, the dog has a behavioral problem, including having bitten several people. The owner therefore made the decision, paid extra and ordered the dog be killed.

His story began on Thursday when he was brought into the shelter:

“Heartbreaking as owner refused to allow the Doxie to go to a rescue. Paid to have it euthanized. The owners are the only people who can reclaim the dog and give the doxie to a rescue. There is no evaluation done by the shelter to re access, and verify signed statements to be true and substantiated . It is because the owner made a claim the dog has bitten before, the impulsivity (sp) of this owner’s action sounds retaliatory. If this bouncing loving dog has behavior issues there would of been many rescues willing to get the dog evaluated and rehabilitated. I hope they are never allowed to adopt another living animal again! Outrageous injustice without a fair assessment from a trained personnel.”

What happened next showed how respectful and persistent animal rescuers were trying to save the dachshund. Shelter personnel from the San Bernardino County animal shelters submitted an explanation citing why the dog could not be released to any rescue organization:

 “The dog with animal identification number A669324 was surrendered by its owner on September 12, 2018, the owner requested that the County euthanize the dog and signed a contract to have this service performed. The statement indicated by the owner on the contract was ‘My animal has a behavioral or temperamental defect that could pose a health or safety risk or otherwise make the animal unsuitable for placement as a pet.’ Pursuant to California Food and Agriculture Code Section 31108.5 entitled Proof of Ownership When Relinquishing a Dog Required. Section (a) (1) states: Upon relinquishment of a dog to a public or private shelter, the owner of the dog shall present sufficient identification to establish his or her ownership of the dog and shall sign a statement that he or she is the lawful owner of the dog,’ the person who relinquished this dog was established to be the owner of this dog.”

Shortly thereafter, a legal fund for the Doxie’s plight was set up while rescuers, animal advocates and supporters repeatedly asked if the dog’s life could be spared. Perhaps it was political pressure, social pressure, owner remorse, a compassionate staff or a combination of everyone working together that San Bernardino County – Devore Animal Shelter , released the dog to rescue on Friday afternoon.

“Good afternoon,
After contact with the owner it has been determined that the dog with animal identification number A669324 will be made available to 501(c)(3) rescue groups today on a first come first serve basis.
Thank you for your interest in our shelter pets.
Kelly Papp”

A.R.T And Paws rescued the Pomeranian that accompanied the Doxie on Thursday. Described as a sweetheart, the Pom had been at the veterinarian having dental work performed. Check out when the two dogs are reunited:

Rescuers devastated as shelter orders euthanasia of healthy dachshund

Rescuers are devastated, but have promised to do  everything they can to save a healthy dachshund from euthanasia after the dog’s owner surrendered him to Devore Shelter in California. According to the owner, the dog has a behavioral problem including having bitten several people. The owner therefore made the decision, paid extra and ordered the dog be killed.

His story begins here:

“Heartbreaking as owner refused to allow the Doxie to go to a rescue. Paid to have it euthanized. The owners are the only people who can reclaim the dog and give the doxie to a rescue. There is no evaluation done by the shelter to re access, and verify signed statements to be true and substantiated . It is because the owner made a claim the dog has bitten before, the impulsivity (sp) of this owner’s action sounds retaliatory. If this bouncing loving dog has behavior issues there would of been many rescues willing to get the dog evaluated and rehabilitated. I hope they are never allowed to adopt another living animal again! Outrageous injustice without a fair assessment from a trained personnel.”

Check out the dachshund’s video as he was being surrendered. How sweet does he seem?

Approved rescue organizations have volunteered to rescue the dog, however Devore Shelter has refused. No explanations have been provided when and why the dog had been aggressive. Rescuers stating they would use a behavioral trainer have also been denied ownership of the dog. No official bite records have been made available.

When contacting shelter personnel, please be respectful.

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.”

Funds needed to keep dog ‘Captain’ from being euthanized

Captain, an almost two-year-old male terrier/Dogo Argentino mix has not done very well being the captain of his own destiny.  He was born 12/23/16 to a mother who was a stray and has just lost the only foster home he has known for 1.5 years.  The next stop for Captain is the county shelter where he will most likely be euthanized due to his age and breed.

A Good Samaritan, upon hearing of Captain’s plight, offered to pay for ten days of boarding to keep him out of the shelter. That money has quickly run out.  The Good Samaritan wants to help Captain get into a new adoptive home but will need time to find the right person(s) who will be a good fit for his personality.

Captain is described as small, weighing 54 pounds, but he is all muscle.  He is looking for a forever home after spending 18 months with a foster.  He was lucky enough to live in a country setting and thrived in that kind of environment. He loves kids and shared his recent foster home with two young boys ages 8 and 11. He did well with them because they were young enough to run around and play with him, but also old enough to understand that a dog is not a toy. He would also take treats gently from them.  Captain would not do well with children younger than 7.

Unfortunately, Captain gets very attached and possessive of his loved ones and gets jealous when his humans share their love with other canines in the home.  Because of this, he will do better in a home where he is the only dog. Captain is a dog who needs lots of daily exercise as well as mental stimulation to keep him entertained and happy. He is definitely not a couch potato and loves nothing better than a long walk or the opportunity to run free in a safely enclosed area.

When he doesn’t get enough exercise, or he is eft alone for long periods of time, Captain will become depressed, bored, frustrated and/or destructive. His humans must be willing to spend a lot of time playing with him and letting him burn off energy. Captain however, will not do well in a dog park setting or any type of playgroup.

He has his favorite frisbee and does well entertaining himself with his IQ treat ball toy. He is also very inquisitive about his environment. He is neutered, crate trained and potty trained.

Another one of Captain’s favorite things is riding in a car. He would make a wonderful travel companion for someone as he is quite well mannered. Because the need to find Captain the right home based on his personality traits, it may take longer than expected. Right now, his only option is to stay in boarding, however it is quite costly, and he must have his own food supplied due to his special diet. He cannot eat food with chicken, poultry, corn or beets or he will break out in hives.

Captain is barely two years old. He wants to live and will be most grateful to anyone who helps give him that chance.  He doesn’t want to end up as another statistic; a dog killed because no one wanted him. If boarding funds run out and no one steps forward to take him in, his only option is the shelter and euthanasia.

All funds will be used to buy him more time in boarding until a home can be found. Any leftover funds will be used towards his care and training in a new home.

To help keep Captain safe, please donate to his fundraiser

Owner would have dumped bonded seniors in shelter parking lot

A bonded pair of senior dogs would have been dumped in the shelter parking lot, had Riverside Animal Shelter not been able to take the dogs. According to a volunteer, the heartbreaking story for these two frightened dogs began on August 28.

“The bonded pair was surrendered yesterday while I was at the shelter. Staff let me know that the owner is moving out of state and had tried to rehome them for quite some time with no luck. If the shelter wouldn’t have taken them, the owner said he would have dumped them in the parking lot. Shelter staff told me they are extremely bonded. If you are wanting to rescue, they come as a pair.”

Charity and SuzyQ – all they have left are each other

Charity and SuzyQ arrived at the Jackson County Animal Shelter in Gautier, Mississippi from a bad situation. Charity, a bully mix and her bonded pal SuzyQ, miniature pin and chihuahua mix, are all they have left; both had been severely covered in fleas, undernourished and suffering from demodex mange.

The adoption coordinator, Maridee Bond Mallette captured the two embracing as they seemed to be assuring each other that everything would be fine.

“When I walk by their cage they are always laying in different funny positions together,” Maridee wrote. “They love each other. It breaks my heart to see them taken away from each other. There are so many that come in like this, and I just don’t understand why people don’t take care of their pets.”

The dogs are both available for adoption. On Tuesday, Maridee was able to trim their nails. Both dogs are currently being treated for demodex and have been gaining weight. Share their plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives.

They are available for adoption. 4400 Audubon Lane Gautier, MS 39553. 228-497-6350.
