Shame on Roxie’s owner: Neglected pup covered in fleas at crowded shelter

Shame on Roxie’s owner. This poor gal showed up as a stray at Carson Animal Care Center on Friday. Full of fleas, practically hairless from scratching and so scared, she cowers, but shows no aggression. Roxie has been placed in the medical section so she can be cared for and rest more comfortably.

12-year-old Oreo dumped at shelter when he didn’t get along with new husky

Meet Oreo – this 12-year-old senior is doing her best to remain positive, but how can we judge how she feels after the only home she has known for nearly her entire life has been exchanged for a wire cage at the Carson Animal Shelter? In an overcrowded shelter, a volunteer tells Oreo’s heartbreaking story:

“She’s beautiful and after 12 years living outside their home she was left at the shelter because she didn’t get along with the new husky they brought home.”

Check out Oreo’s video:

And for the last two weeks, Oreo has been making the best of a bad situation. #A5188386

“My name is OREO and I’m an approximately 12 year old female Pit Bull. I am already spayed. I have been at the Carson Animal Care Center since 6/11. I will be available on 6/11. You can visit me at my temporary home at C107. My former family who owned me for more than 5 years had to give me up because they just weren’t up for the responsibility of a pet. But they said that I spend time indoors and outdoors. I seem to be good with small children. I have begun housetraining, but I still need some work. I have not learned how to walk on a leash. I’m not sure how I feel about other pets. “

Human kindness needed: Confused senior dog brings tears to shelter staff

Dara is a nearly blind ten-year-old dog. The confused senior needs human kindness; her struggle as she tried to understand what had happened to her at a noisy shelter brought tears to the eyes of the shelter staff. Details of her arrival at the Inland Valley Humane Society in Pomona, California are at the best quite murky, but her immediate future lies in peril. There won’t be a list of potential adopters, and doesn’t she deserve better?

“Today Dara and I experienced what we probably both needed. Human kindness. One of the kennel attendants ‘Jacob’ went out of his way to help me get pictures and video of sweet Dara. He got choked up, which in Turn got me choked up. We both witnessed a senior dog so confused. A terrible, terrible sight. The unfamiliar sounds of an animal shelter, the cries of other dogs is enough to make any animal sad, but for a blind senior the sadness is unbearable,” wrote shelter volunteer Sal Valdepena.

Dara struggles to walk and needs to be examined by a veterinarian. She can barely stand for any length of time. Most likely this poor dog has been neglected and needs to know that humans can offer much more than pain. An adopter would be ideal; a foster home would work too.

Neglected 16-year-old Tigger left at shelter by his owner to be euthanized

A neglected 16-year-old poodle named Tigger was surrendered on Monday to Carson Animal Care. His family asked that their dog be euthanized because he was old. Of course, Tigger doesn’t understand. Once the only family he has ever known walked out of his life, and the frightened pup was placed in a shelter kennel, he huddled into the corner and shook.

Video#1:

A volunteer at the shelter has asked for Tigger to be moved to the medical ward where it is quieter and much more personal.

“We asked them to put a blanket but he won’t go inside…He needs help as soon as possible.”

Dumped at shelter, 17-year-old Lab named Moosse deserves better

You might have looked at the headline twice while shaking your head, convinced no dog owner would ever surrender their 17-year-old Lab to the Baldwin Park Shelter in California, but tragically on Thursday, Moosse was betrayed.

According to shelter volunteers, Moosse’s family failed to fill out an animal profile on their dog nor did they bother to provide any information about their dog which only would have helped to find the senior a foster home or end of life care in a loving environment. Instead, he was just “dumped.”

“The shelter said Moosse is VERY FRIENDLY, quiet. alert, slow and he looks like he has a lot life left in him,” wrote a shelter volunteer on PetConnect.Us Facebook page.

Moosse has not been examined by the shelter veterinarian yet, however his brief intake records indicate he has moderate tartar, worn teeth, cloudy eyes, dirty ears, a slow gait, panting and is slightly overweight at 90 pounds. A shelter is the last place this dog should be. Please share his plight with approved rescue organizations, families, friends and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives.

Terribly neglected 14-year-old Shar-Pei still loves to cuddle and kiss

A terribly neglected 14-year-old Shar-Pei, seized by Humane Law Enforcement officers in Texas, is now on her way to New York City for specialized veterinarian care. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC was made aware of Rouge’s tragic plight and stepped forward to help. Rouge, known for the breed’s affectionate and devoted temperament, just wanted to be loved.

“Rouge breaks our hearts. This sweet 14 year old Shar-Pei was just seized by Humane Law Enforcement and is suffering from horrible neglect. Despite the neglect she has gone through she loves to cuddle with staff, seeks out attention and is very gentle and sweet,” wrote the organization’s co-founder, Jackie O’Sullivan, early Saturday morning.

Rouge is emaciated, has severe ear infections and has an obvious head tilt. In addition, she suffers from a myriad of physical health issues likely a result of severe neglect.

“She has severe skin infections which are especially bad in her legs with proliferative tissue which has led to hypertrophic tissue which could be caused by unknown reason. She is anemic, has arthritis, entropion and one bladder stone. We truly believe that Rouge has more love and life left to give and are desperately hoping she can find placement asap,” Jackie added after she confirmed that Rouge was heading to New York City.

Family surrenders 14-year-old dog stating she can be ‘aggressive’

Chispa’s family surrendered their 14-year-old dog to the Carson Animal Care Center at 10:00 in the evening late last week. They told the staff the dog can be “aggressive” at times. Sadly, there was no indication her owner had bothered to take her to a licensed veterinarian and help to assess the little dog’s issue.

Video:

This little gal is going to need an understanding compassionate foster situation or approved rescue organization to help her. How can it be fair to abandon her in her time of need?

Elderly woman moved to tears while surrendering her senior cat – read more here.

 

 

Elderly woman cried as she surrendered her 20-year-old cat

An elderly woman, no longer able to care for her 20-year-old cat, cried as she surrendered Snow to PAWS (Public Animal Welfare Services) in Rome, Georgia on Monday. A volunteer was at the shelter as the heartbreaking separation brought tears to even the most stoic; in a rocking chair she gently tried to comfort Snow.

“His elderly mama just had to surrender him to AC because she has to move and she cannot take them with her. She cried and cried and so did everyone else,” the shelter posted on their Facebook page of the Rome Floyd Humane Society, helping to find a home for Snow and his bonded companion Macy.

Snow is described as a very sweet cat who has been neutered and has had veterinarian care. Tragically along with Snow, Macy  was also surrendered. He is a small 14-year-old terrier, and if the two can be placed together, surely it would make their world a little more comforting and not nearly as lonely.

Please note, according to the Rome Floyd Humane Society, all options are being examined to allow the owner to keep Snow. Both the cat and the dog are currently at the PAWS Animal Control, located at 99 North Ave in Rome, Georgia. RFHS is a community resource for education, assistance for low income families, and are able to offer assistance when needed.

Video of Snow being comforted:

Geriatric blind senior whose time was up at shelter finds loving arms

A geriatric and blind senior, dropped off at the Baldwin Park Shelter, had nearly run out of time late Saturday afternoon. Animal advocates, however had no intentions of abandoning this pooch in her hour of greatest  need.

“… She needs proper medical care. She is blind!. This little girl should not be in the shelter; she should be in our loving arms poor little girl can’t even see. I can’t even imagine what she’s thinking…,” posted the rescue group Josh and his critters Sunday afternoon.

The shelter had performed emergency surgery and removed the dog’s right eye. Within hours, she had been rescued.

“First thing in the morning we will take her to the hospital where she can get the proper care she needs.”

If you would like to send in a donation to her the rescue’s address is 8705 Sunland Blvd., Sun Valley, CA 91352

Never give up. Check out her freedom video and follow her story on here. Now she needs a name.

‘Grandpa’ was old and left to die at Texas shelter until …

“Grandpa” was abandoned and left to die at a Texas kill shelter. Had it not been for animal advocates and Rescue Dogs Rock NYC,  the emaciated, nine-year-old Heeler would have been led down a lonely hallway and put to sleep – an old soul who was scared, meek and suffering.

“His eyes tell his story,” Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of the rescue organization posted on Facebook as she diligently worked to transfer Grandpa to their partner veterinarian hospital in San Antonio.

For ten years, Grandpa lived outside tied to a chain. His grueling existence included weathering storms,  enduring extreme heat and illness. As he grew older, he lost his hair, his back sloped down and somewhere one of his front legs had been amputated; barely supported by his mangled back legs Grandpa had been a poster dog of neglect, yet not one person ever tried to reach out and help.

“Our companion animals have no rights; no one to help dogs like Grandpa, at the mercy of someone who doesn’t care,” Stacey continued.  “Just look  at this poor soul …This bring tears to our eyes, knowing Grandpa’s life has been so awful.”

Grandpa is now in San Antonio and is safely out of the shelter. He is receiving medical care – most likely for the first time in his life. Veterinarians and the staff at the hospital say this senior has plenty of love to give and plenty of time to enjoy a new and improved life.

His arthritis will be treated to help him be more comfortable, and when he is well enough to travel to New York, he will be ready for a new home. Granpa is mellow, well-behaved, children and dog friendly.
