Beautiful ‘Angel’ on the list to be destroyed at busy animal control agency

A beautiful four-year-old dog named “Angel,” is desperately in need of help. Angel is being held at a busy animal control agency in Brooklyn, New York, and she is on the “list to be destroyed” for January 25. Angel arrived to the animal control agency on January 14, when her owner surrendered her because of a move to a home where she was not allowed.

Angel previously lived with children and she is described as good with other female dogs – according to volunteers, she is friendly and appears to be “very house-broken.” Angel is already spayed and she walks well on a leash. Though Angel has a list of strong attributes, she is out of time.

For months, senior dog has had zero interest – now he is on ‘the list’

Update: Rescued!!

For months (since October!!) a senior dog named Irving has been held at California’s Riverside Animal Control agency. In the time that Irving has been incarcerated (through NO fault of his own) he has had zero interest, despite multiple attempts to promote him on social media.

On Monday, the Pet Rescue Report received a desperate plea to help save Irving from an untimely demise. The email request reads, “I’ve been desperately networking this poor old guy who’s been at the Riverside Shelter for 2 ½ months now and he is living day to day now, basically winning the shelter version of the hunger games everyday because he’s a such a sweetheart of a guy. I don’t know what else to do to get an adopter or rescue to take him. Irving has been at the shelter so long he’s starting to build a portfolio of PetHarbor photos.”

Irving’s advocate added:

The Riverside shelter obviously doesn’t want to kill him, but they are not a long-term facility, they are strictly animal control, and I was told by the staff that he is “extremely urgent” which is code for “any day now.”

Irving is still alive for one reason, and one reason only – the staff loves him. Despite the adoration of the animal control employees, the facility is not equipped to keep dogs forever (especially when there is a constant influx from people who are dumping their pets and the incoming strays).

You can help save Irving by taking a moment to share his adoption information – he is out of time and is relying on strangers to help.

Riverside Rescue Office 951-358-7302 or email rescue@rivco.org to ADOPT or RESCUE IRVING (who is CODE RED) NOW!

Overlooked, out of time, time-stamped for death Jan. 9

A dog who volunteers refer to as “very sweet and gentle,” a dog who wants to love and be loved (especially cuddle time) has been slated for death. One volunteer wrote of interactions with this beautiful brindle:

“Oh Ronda! What a sweet, cuddly, gentle girl. I would bring her home myself if I could. Ronda is an absolute cuddle queen–on our walks, every time I bend down even for a second, she immediately puts her head on my lap and snuggles up. She far prefers affection to running around, and will check in with me all the time while we’re walking.”

Unfortunately, the stress of life behind bars is taking a toll on Ronda – she has started to show signs of stress and mental deterioration. Sadly, the dog who wants to be loved has been overlooked and passed by and now, staff at the animal control agency has determined that she is on the list to be put down on January 9. Time has nearly run out for Ronda – but while she is alive, there is still help.

You can help Ronda by taking a moment to network her adoption information.

After months, ‘volunteer favorite’ has been ‘red-listed’

After several months of being networked, a homeless dog at the Los Angeles Animal Services “Harbor Shelter,” in California, has been “red-listed.” Trixie, a five-year-old pit bull mix is so sweet that she has become a favorite among volunteers, but their favor is not enough to keep her out of harm’s way.

A glowing description has been written about this lovely dog:

Trixie is easily one of the sweetest and most gentle dogs we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She’s a voluptuous and full-figured beauty who loves having her ample belly rubbed, and whose calm and gentle nature has already made her a volunteer favorite. She shares her kennel with another dog and appears to be dog-friendly.  Trixie is amazing.”

Because of a mass on one of Trixie’s legs, she is on “medical alert.” Please take a moment to help this dog find a rescue agency, or an adopter, before she runs out of time.

Last call for Gigi – surrendered when owner went to college

Gigi had a home…and a family, but today she is alone and at great risk of being put down. According to Rescue Me Tampa, Gigi’s owner left for college and mom did not want Gigi anymore. The volunteer-run Facebook page stated:

Poor Gigi. Her owner went off to college and her Mother does not want to keep the dog, due to the fact she is an outside dog that escapes frequently, will dig under the gate or climb over the 8 ft chain link fence. Sounds like she is bored and not taken care of to us… Gigi needs A HOME INSIDE!!!

Additional personality information was posted to Facebook:

She is very sweet and adorable. She has a note she is friendly with children too! She is a good girl in play group with other dogs and is noted to be tolerant, gentle, dainty and high energy playing. She has been spayed, she has also tested HW positive, easily treatable.

This betrayed dog may very well pay with her life for her owner’s indifference – Gigi has been at the facility since September and nobody has expressed a desire to adopt her. Animal control agencies do not keep dogs forever and Gigi is out of time.

Please help share Gigi’s adoption information – she could use the help of strangers if she is going to make it out of the facility alive.

Terrified dog owner surrendered – must be out by Tues night

Update: Rescued by Canine Nation!

A terrified dog, described as a German shepherd mix, was owner surrendered to a Philadelphia animal control agency on October 8 and he is urgently in need of rescue or adoption. The dog, who is under two years of age, “must find exit” by October 11 (Tuesday) at 8 p.m.

On Tuesday afternoon, the Facebook page “Philly Urgents,” wrote, “Negrito is a handsome 1 – 2 year Shepherd mix was brought to the shelter because his owners could not properly house him. He is reported to have lived with other dogs, cats, and children in the past. His previous owners say that he walks well on his leash, will come when called, and absolutely loves to play fetch! Sadly, being in the loud and stressful kennel environment has caused this sweet pup to become very scared.”

Negrito is so terrified in the kennel that he cowers in the corner and refuses to come out for staff. Negrito is in an album of extremely urgent dogs – Philly Urgents explains the urgency of the situation:

All of the dogs in this album are at risk for euthansia due to being Time-stamped. If your rescue can help any of these dogs, please contact Lifesaving@acctphilly.org ASAP and come into the shelter.

If you are interested in adopting the adoptable time-stamped dogs, please email adopt@acctphilly.org

Breed: German Shepherd mix.
Intake: Owner surrender on 10/8 (inadequate housing).
Age: 1 – 2 years.
Weight: 64.4 lbs.
Sex/Alter Status: Unaltered male.
Behavior Condition: Scared in kennels, at risk of declining in shelter.

Surrendered to high-kill shelter: Dog’s collar removed and replaced by a rope

He’s just a little guy with a tragic story. As his collar seems to have been removed and replaced by nothing more than a rope tied around his neck, a three-year-old Chihuahua will be very lucky if he finds his way out of the front door of the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center in California.

Click here for this little one’s adoption listing.  #A4999572. “I don’t have a name yet and I’m an approximately 3 year old male chihuahua sh.  I am not yet neutered.  I have been at the Baldwin Animal Care Center since October 4, 2016.  I will be available on October 8, 2016.  You can visit me at my temporary home at B210.” A Facebook page for this dog can be followed here as advocates share his story with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts.

Volunteers who have met this dog state he is extremely sweet – even during the stress of this heartbreaking situation.

Chihuahuas like him struggle to leave the shelter system Alive… Why? Because he’s not a tiny Chihuahua, he’s not a puppy, and he’s in an area that dumps dogs by the bus loads. So let’s help him beat the odds,” states  the Chi’s advocate Sal Valdepena. “Something about seeing a dog brought to a shelter just destroys me.”

To help this proud little pooch, contact the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center located at 4275 N. Elton Street in Baldwin Park, California. Call (626)962.3577.

Nothing but praise for dog on ‘the list’ to be killed

There is nothing but praise for an unfortunate dog who is on the dreaded ‘list’ which puts her at high risk for being killed at a busy animal control agency in New York. The young dog, named “Zaire,” (ID #A1090945), is described as a snuggler who is a “total people dog.”

A volunteer shared some insight about the death-row dog:

I love when staff tells me how sweet and snuggly a dog is before I meet them. Nothing but accolades for what a people dog Miss Zaire is. Happy to be leashed, going potty as soon as we’re out the door, we head to my favorite snuggle place for some one on one time. Sure enough, Zaire leans into me, puts her head on my knee, and when I look back on my pictures her eyes are closed, savoring the moments.

Being lovable and happy is not enough to keep Zaire safe – to keep her from being on ‘the list’ that no dog should be on. Zaire is at risk of being killed, though she has done nothing wrong.

dog on 'the list'

A volunteer added:

if you’re looking for a dog who will make you the center of her world, then Zaire is the girl you want to meet. I’d love to think of her in snuggle bliss, eyes closed with pleasure, cuddling in her new home. Are you the person who can give her that gift?

Please click here to read the full profile on this three-year-old dog who is at risk of being killed on October 5.

Note – Zaire has exhibited stress at the animal control agency and may not be suitable for households with other dogs. Please contact the facility directly to learn more about this dog. You can call (212) 788-4000 for automated instructions.

When an 18-year-old dog spends even one night at a crowded shelter

If a picture is worth a thousand words, could a gentle 18-year-old dog watching life go by in a crowded city shelter convey the saddest essence of a disposable society? Yet, there he waits – a surrendered dog at the Baldwin Animal Shelter in California; a dog with a strong will to survive.john-hwang-sept292

And as animal advocate, John Hwang passed by the kennel of Browney, the Chinese Sharpei, John listened carefully as he photographed Browney – hoping to help the gentle soul find someone to love and care for him.

“His barks were faint. Every movement, every breathe felt labored. Yet even at 18 years of age, his strong will keeps him going..”

Click here for Browney’s adoption listing. “My name is Browney and I’m an approximately 18 years, 3 month old male Chinese Sharpei.  I am not yet neutered.  I have been at the Baldwin Animal Care Center since September 15, 2016.  I am available on September 19, 2016.  You can visit me at my temporary home at B418.” A Facebook page for this dog can be found here. Although Browney currently has a “commitment to adopt” and a rescue organization waiting, Baldwin Animal Shelter has not allowed the release of the dog pending the requirement for a temperament test before being permitted to leave. Meanwhile, this dog needs to be at a veterinarian’s office receiving help – not lying in a kennel in the extreme heat. john-hwang-sept293

Please share Browney’s plight with friends, family and social media contacts. Browney’s family should have been celebrating his life – an amazing feat few dogs ever accomplish – instead they dumped him at a shelter to die alone. Follow the dog’s rescue here.

Friendly dog on death row after ailing owner surrendered her

A friendly eight-year-old dog is on death row after she was surrendered to a busy animal control agency in Manhattan, New York. The dog, named “Mia,” (A1091214) is already on the “to be destroyed” list after her ailing owner surrendered her to the New York Animal Care and Control Manhattan facility on September 25.

The following heartbreaking words have been written about Mia’s situation on the NYC Urgent Dogs website:

How heartbreaking it must be for Mia and for the owner who was forced to surrender her due to the owner’s poor health. Mia was clearly loved. She was even a bit too well fed, but she was spayed, taught basic commands, house trained and loved people of all ages. Her owner reported no issues whatsoever with this sweet, 24 pound 8 year old Shih tzu mix. By all accounts Mia was the perfect pet and now, through no fault of her own she is on the list to be killed

Mia had a normal life before her everything was turned upside down when her owner’s health declined – through no fault of her own, she is now in danger of being killed. Please help this surrendered dog find a rescue agency or adopter by taking a moment to share her adoption information.
