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.”

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.

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

Reward nears $10k to find culprit who jabbed carabiner in dog’s chest

The reward leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for jabbing a carabiner through a dog’s chest in Walton County, Florida has increased to nearly $10,000. On Friday, the Humane Society of the United States announced that it is offering $5,000 along with funds from a local rescue organization – bringing the total to $9,750.

On July 19, an injured dog was spotted curled up under a trailer. The dog was too frightened to come out and would growl at anyone that came too close. Animal control officers responded to the situation and when they were able to coax the dog out, noted a metal object embedded into the dog’s skin with a chain hanging from it.

Alaqua Animal Refuge stepped forward to help and named the yellow Labrador retriever Woodrow. The dog has since recovered from his injuries and once released from the shelter, will be offered for adoption.

“In releasing the photo of the dog’s injuries, we are hoping someone will come forward with information,” said Sheriff Michael Adkinson. “These injuries did not happen by accident.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the Walton County Sheriff’s Office at (850) 892-8186 or remain anonymous by calling Emerald Coast Crime Stoppers at (850) 863-TIPS.

Let’s help Woodrow get some justice.

Heartbreaking: Dog’s loving glances towards the owner who betrays her

In a heartbreaking ten second video at an overcrowded Texas animal shelter in Paris, a dog’s loving glances towards her owner barely evokes any reaction. The dog stands as close to her owner  as she can looking for comfort, but the woman offers no kind gesture towards her loyal dog or the puppies surrendered on Monday afternoon.

 

 

All she says is

“I know you’re hurting.”

Video:

The mother dog has a painful bleeding mass under her arm. Three of her puppies have died and one is missing.

A Facebook page can be followed here. A shelter volunteer offers the following information:

“Mama and her 3 puppies just OSR [Owner surrenedered] to the #ParisTxShelter! Puppies are 5 weeks old. Owner stated that she could not afford medical care. There is a huge mass on her chest. She is bleeding. She has surrendered several dogs before. There were 7 puppies but she only brought in 3. 3 died and she can’t find the other one. Another couple came in to surrender two puppies while she was here and owner tried to take them!  Mom and puppies need help ASAP.”

Violet: Surrendered at 20-years-old when her family became homeless

Abandoned Eleanor Rigby dragged across parking lot to overcrowded shelter

Eleanor Rigby was dragged across the parking lot into the San Bernardino City Shelter on Tuesday morning. Animal advocate and volunteer, Andrea Neyses had been running into the shelter to take photos of the dogs in order to help them find homes when she stopped short.

“I never even made it into the San Bernardino City Shelter. and there’s a dog being dragged across the parking lot. I had to stop,” began Andrea as she unfolded the tragic story of a lonely, unwanted dog. “ELEANOR RIGBY is a young girl?  such a gentle soul, Husky /Shepherd mix, old scarred skin and a halo of fleas all about her, scarred nipples, been bred too much!”

The person dragging Eleanor Rigby into the shelter stated the dog had been abandoned in a busy area for more than two weeks, and no one bothered to help her until this morning. The Good Samaritan found her crossing Highland Avenue – a street where the freeway exits. He had been surprised she was still there; kind hearts had been throwing her scraps from a nearby grocery store.

“Ah, look at all the lonely (people) dogs. Where do they all come from? Where do they all belong?”

Heartbreaking Shiba Inu mix with horrendous injuries needs rescue help

The shelter staff and volunteers at the Polk County Georgia Animal Adoption and Recovery Shelter posted the heartbreaking video of a white Shiba Inu puppy who came in on Monday as a stray. She was immediately taken to the shelter’s veterinarian for emergency care.

Animal advocate Shannon Hicks describes the frightened puppy and is asking the rescue community for help.

“She came in with horrendous wounds. She has what looks like an injury to her face and back. Her back is very raw and open. She also has markings around her muzzle that (in my non expert opinion) looks like someone used something to hold her mouth together – again I am not a vet but that’s exactly what the wound makes me think. I hope I am wrong because that is just sick.”

Check out the Shiba Inu puppy’s video. She is so frightened and defeated; all she wants to do is find a way to disappear. Notice, even with her severe and painful injuries, she shows no aggression.

Because of her injuries, this Shiba Inu is listed as rescue only. Follow her plight here. Please share her information with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives.

Hidden in shelter quarantine, Calista needs help now

RESCUED by Coastal German Shepherd

Calista has been hidden in the quarantine area of  Carson Animal Care since Monday.  Who would even guess this friendly German shepherd is only four-years-old? What kind of life did she have before she was picked up as a stray? How could anyone look at their dog day after day and allow her condition as a once beautiful German shepherd to deteriorate like this?

Follow Calista’s Facebook page here. Notes on her health indicate the following:

” I called the shelter. Skin scrape was negative for mange. She had really bad fleas when she came in. No real diagnosis except for dermatitis and generalized alopecia (hair loss). Also, her teeth are very worn down.”

Volunteers all love her. Check out her video here:
