Adorable stray puppies given first ‘euth’ injection saved at last moment

In a rural Georgia animal shelter, no one came to adopt five adorable and healthy puppies. They had been on stray hold for eight days, and their time on earth was ending at 3:45 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon. The Australian shepherd mixes were unwanted puppies thrown away as if their lives didn’t matter. Neither one had been given a name. Their innocent lives had already been given the first ‘euth’ injection prior to a poison filled syringe to be jabbed directly into their chest walls.

Their story, however does continue:

“We wish we were never born. We were laid on a cold concrete floor and given the first injection to sedate us. Everything began to feel weird. We couldn’t stand, we felt sleepy and then we fell down and were totally sedated. The vet then came into the room to inject the second shot which would stop our hearts. That didn’t happen. A miracle took place. Our voices were heard.”

Office Manager, Kristin White at McIntosh County Animal Services shared the story of the puppies with Animal Aid USA. Volunteers rushed to the shelter, and from this day forward two lucky puppies will get to grow up and enjoy life – just as it should be. To donate please click here. 

Links and videos to the other three pups saved can be followed here or viewed below.

According to the ASPCA, new data shows decreases in shelter intake and euthanasia of homeless dogs and cats. Although there are still regional disparities, an estimated 3.2 million shelter animals are adopted each year which is up from 2.7 million adoptions in 2011. Please don’t shop for your next best friend. Be sure to spay and neuter.

Pup seen pleading with his owner not to abandon him at shelter

On Wednesday, Kino stood on his back legs and pressed against his human’s body as if pleading with his eyes not to  be abandoned at the San Bernardino Animal Shelter in California. Shelter volunteer Lois Chisholm was there.

“This breaks my heart. He was begging his owner not to leave him there.”

Tragically an eyewitness in the lobby spotted Kino’s owner swatting the three-year-old terrier while pushing him away during the pet surrender process at the shelter. All Kino seemed to want was to go home and be loved. Despite the dog’s heartbreaking pleas, he was left behind.

#A51405 “My name is KINO and I am a neutered male, apricot Terrier mix. Shelter staff think I am about 3 years old. I was surrendered by my owner to the shelter on May 15, 2018.” This is my PetHarbor link: http://petharbor.com/pet.asp?uaid=SBCT.A514058

“I am at San Bernardino City Animal Shelter, 333 Chandler Place, San Bernardino, CA Telepone (909) 384-1304
They are open Tuesday through Saturday from 10AM to 5PM and are closed on Sunday and Monday.”

A Facebook page with additional information can be followed here. Share this dog’s plight with friends, family, approved rescue organizations and social media contacts. Surrendered pets have no required time limits and can be euthanized at the shelter’s discretion. When Kino was surrendered, he was so frightened he became “nippy” to the staff. And now he is being punished and is only available to rescue organizations.

Rescues please email Jennifer Van Ness, the SBC rescue coordinator, with ID# asap if interested in helping. Email: Vanness_je@sbcity.org

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.

Dog found dragging 10-pound chain no longer a prisoner of cruelty

There she was – a 31-pound dog dragging a 10-pound chain wandering the streets alone; attached with a collar to a chain used for pulling engines out of cars. She was emaciated and scared when a volunteer from Stray Rescue of St. Louis was able to calm her and ultimately rescue the pooch now named Fallon Marie.

Fallon Marie struggled to survive on the streets. No one knew how she lasted as long as she did dragging the heavy weight behind her. Somewhere and somehow Fallon Marie had escaped from her captors.

Rescuers comment on Fallon Marie’s calm energy and her forgiving nature. Content to be scratched, grateful to be fed and forgiving enough to accept the human touch, one more dog is safe.

Give Princess another chance for her ‘Dear Diary’ new family

Princess is an “At Risk” dog listed to die on Thursday at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. On April 15, she was surrendered to the shelter because her owner said the dog was no longer permitted in their apartment. Now she is at risk of euthanasia this afternoon for medical reasons; she has been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs at the shelter. According to shelter notes, she will need to be administered antibiotics for two weeks.

Apparently Princess refuses to let her bad cold bother her; a volunteer sings her praises:

“Dear Diary, Today was the very best day. I ran and I jumped and I played! I made so many new friends and I ate so many delicious wonderful snacks. Today was the very best day. ‘Who ever said you needed Anne Hathaway or Julie Andrews to enjoy the Princess Diaries?’ Our four-year-old pooch is obviously royalty in her buttercream coat tailor made for a queen to be.”

This delightful dog has a cheerful affinity towards toys  (pink stuffies)  and bubbles over with enthusiasm. She is described as leash trained, takes her treats gently and her tail swishes at windshield wiper speed when she spots a toy. An experienced adopter would be perfect for this girl.

Share this dog’s plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Today could be her very last day to play. Help to fill in May 3 – below:

“Day unknown: “Dear Diary, Today was truly the very best day, my happiest day, the best day I have ever known. Today is the day that I found my new family. Today is the day I went home.” Princess is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan ACC.”

Notes:

Meet Beaux Tox: Dog with facial deformity finds Internet fame

A Labrador retriever with a facial deformity has found Internet fame. His name is now Beaux Tox, but for five years he lived in an Austin, Texas backyard because his owner’s cats didn’t like the dog in the house. Ironically, he had been named Lucky.

Six-years ago, Beaux Tox had been born with a malformed skull, after having been crushed by his six brothers and sisters in his mother’s womb. An MRI confirmed his deformity had no effect on his intelligence, however the breeder couldn’t sell the deformed puppy; his sunken skull, and his eyes too close together didn’t make for a cute puppy. And so Lucky was given away and  for most of his life, he spent tethered to a chain –  neglected and untrained.

When it came time for his owners to move away, they contacted a local animal rescue group who unsuccessfully tried to find a new home for the dog.

When an animal advocate posted the dog’s photo on social media about a year ago, Jamie Hulit just knew she wanted this dog. According  to Today.com, Hulit stated,

“I called my friend and said, ‘I want that dog. I don’t even want to foster him, I want him.'”

Hulit, an animal rescuer and volunteer who lives in Austin, drove out to the home where the dog had been living until he could be placed in a new home. Sadly he had been neglected, weighed only 42 pounds and tested positive for heartworms as well as having been covered in fleas. When brought to the veterinarian, Dr. Rydberg, explained the dog’s serious health problems. Jamie opted to try and save his life.

For much of his first month at the vet, Beaux remained on oxygen and several times he almost died. Fortunately, the pooch was a fighter, and by the end of three months he weighed enough to begin his heartworm treatments;  months later Beaux was finally given a clean bill of health even though he is blind in his right eye and deaf in his left ear.

The healthy pooch now weighs 108 pounds and shares a home with two other dogs. Beaux always wears a tie to soften his looks since many people are scared of his appearance when they first meet him. And now a year later, Jamie doesn’t regret the money she spent nor the hours involved helping Beaux reclaim his life.

Adorable 12-week-old border collie dumped on side of Texas road

Why would anyone abandon a friendly 12-week-old border collie and Labrador mix on a street in Red Oak, Texas? Was the puppy too expensive to feed? Did the puppy urinate in the house?

On Friday, the Red Oak Animal Control and Shelter, received a call from a Good Samaritan stating he had witnessed someone dumping a puppy at a well-known dumping area in Red Oak. The caller explained he didn’t stop to rescue the border collie pup, but wanted to inform the shelter where the little guy had been abandoned.

This adorable little one will be available for adoption on April 3, 2018. If interested in adopting, come to the shelter and check out all of the great pets who still need homes.

The following video was made just ten minutes after the call came into the shelter. Check it out. Why would anyone dump something so cute and friendly. Listen to her crying because she was so frightened and grateful at the same time. Many thanks to the heroes who rescue these loyal companions.

Update: Dimple, dog fight victim from St. Landry Parish improving

On Tuesday afternoon, St. Landry Parish Animal Control & Rescue in rural Louisiana, received a heartbreaking call. An abandoned dog, clearly having had been part of a dog fight, had been dumped. He hid beneath an old deserted home. It was a heartbreaking call as Animal Control officers knew the dog, soon to be named Dimple, was seriously injured.

“He hurts. It’s bad,” were the words describing the dog, no one had any intentions of giving up Dimple’s chances to survive.

The dog was rushed to the Bellevue Veterinarian Clinic where his injuries continue to be treated. Just 48 hours after Dimple was found quietly lying under the foundation of an old home and had given up on life because his wounds hurt so much, his future looks brighter.

“Dimple wants to thank everyone. He’s giving y’all a big smile,” shelter manager Stacey  posted on Facebook with the dog’s latest photo. And yes, he does appear to be smiling.

According to Dimple’s update, his infected wounds from a dog fight have left him with holes all over his face and neck area. He has no sight in his right eye that suffered severe damage, and the veterinarian staff is working hard to help him maintain his vision in his left eye.

” Dr Kevin is very positive he will recover. He will have some major scaring. And facial disfigurement…..BUT HE WILL HAVE A CHANCE at a real LIFE…,” Stacey emphasized.


Donations can be called in to his vet team at 337-942-7126 or PayPal to Stacey.alleman@stlandryparish.org . Through everyone’s generosity, Dimple is able to receive the care he so desperately needs.
SLPAC OPELOUSAS LA 337-948-6184

Get well soon Dimple. You have a community behind you. St. Landry Parish Animal Control and Rescue wants to remind everyone to spay and neuter their pets. Why buy a dog at a pet store or from a breeder when so many wonderful furry friends are just waiting to be adopted? The shelter is overcrowded. Volunteer, foster or adopt. You will feel great for helping and the dogs and cats will welcome the attention.

Report any suspicions of animal cruelty. Be the voices for those who cannot speak.

Abandoned after he fought: St. Landry Parish calls out abusers

On Tuesday afternoon, St. Landry Parish Animal Control & Rescue in rural Louisiana, received a heartbreaking call. An abandoned dog, clearly having had been part of a dog fight, had been dumped. He hid beneath an old deserted home.

“And just like that. In comes that call,”  Stacey the shelter manager, posted on the organization’s Facebook page below  graphic photos of the latest victim of abuse and animal cruelty. “The call that breaks your heart. To hear my officer say …’he hurts…it’s bad.'”

The dog, dubbed Dimple, has been rushed to the Bellevue Veterinarian Clinic. Apparently Dimple’s owner never treated his dog’s wounds which are now badly infected. Veterinarian Dr. Kevin is caring for Dimple and will make a professional opinion as to his prognosis and his future.

“…That is to be the only opinion accepted. Today I am not going to accept, ‘he got away, or lost or stray,'” Stacey continued the heart wrenching account of Dimple’s condition and the excuses so commonly used by irresponsible and uncaring owners. “This poor soul suffered. He hurts. And someone is responsible. This Parish is done accepting excuses.”

Donate to this poor boy’s medical expenses by calling  Bellevue Vet clinic 337-942-7126

Please note the shelter is full, and there is no place for the dogs to go.

“We offer comfort. Safe place. And we try to save them all. Yet there’s no room – none. Adoptions are extremely low. There’s no free spay neuter clinic. There’s no free adoptions. There’s no chance. Please spay and neuter.”

While sharing Dimple’s tragic story, please share the need for donations to St. Landry Parish Animal Control & Rescue. Think about adopting a new best friend. Without our help, these dogs have little hope.

‘I’m a good boy’: If only Simba could find a home of his own

“I’m a good boy.” If only Simba could find a home of his own. The four-year-old friendly pooch has just been administered his heartworm treatment and needs a quiet place to recuperate. This handsome fellow has been at the Genesee County Animal Control since 2017 and needs to be out of the shelter. Poor Simba is so “over being in a cage almost 24/7.”

Video #1

A volunteer writes:

“He’s such a sweet boy. He loves to play with his toys… laying on a doggie bed in the adoption room. He’d love a home to do that in. We would suggest older, respectful children.

Video #2

It’s heartbreaking to see how Simba just doesn’t want to go back to his kennel. Share his plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. A quiet place, with no stress and a place he can rest and be loved would be Simba’s dream. Can you help him?
