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.”

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.”

Even when mini pinscher pretends to sleep, senior shivers in fright

Even when Rosie, the mini pinscher, pretends to sleep, her tiny body shivers in fright. She arrived as a stray on August 25 and her family has not been to the Carson Animal Care Center to find her. The nine-year-old adorable pooch seems exhausted and is missing most of her hair. The shelter is very crowded, and Rosie’s life is at risk.

On Sunday, Violet was surrendered to the Carson Animal Care Shelter when her family became homeless.

Rescuer of 14-year-old dog dumped at shelter pens letter to owner

A 14-year-old dog surrendered to an animal shelter just days ago had no voice, so how could she tell her story? Mandy’s owner raised her since she had been a puppy – just eight weeks old, and that day when her owner attached the leash to her collar, Mandy was sure they were going for a ride in the car. After all, is there anything better than to go for a ride in the car with the person a dog loved the most – perhaps more than herself?

When they pulled up to the building where Mandy heard other dogs barking, she thought she might be getting a friend, but that wasn’t the case.

“What was this place? You walked me in, signed some papers and told those people all the things you knew about me through these 14 years. I saw you hand them a few dollars, and just like that you were gone. I never saw you again.”

During the next few days, Mandy spent her time in a cage listening to the other dogs barking; all of the loyal dogs waiting for their owners to return.

“Every time the door opened, I lifted my head to see if it was you, but it wasn’t – just another stranger. I had food and water but no peace.”

Just days later, Mandy’s cage door opened again. This time someone put a leash around her neck, and Mandy thinking her owner had come back for her, wagged her tail happily.  Although she didn’t know who the rescue person was, everyone was so kind, they even let her take another car ride. The barking dogs were finally gone.

“This really nice woman made me a comfy bed in a crate, another dog sleeping next to it to keep me company; it was nice! She gave me food and water and I closed my eyes and got some rest.”

And one day later, Mandy slept in the house with the nice woman and still no sign of her owner, but it was fine.

“I want you to know something.  This letter I’m writing to you right now is from heaven. It’s beautiful up here. I’ve been running and playing since last night when I got here. Just know I did not die in the shelter. I got my last car ride and a walk too. I got some meals and water and a nice comfy place to sleep. I didn’t die around loud noises and chaos. I died surrounded by love; something you couldn’t give me – someone else did for the last and only 24 hours I spent with her.”

Mandy was rescued from a shelter in New York City by Pit of Our Souls Rescue just in time. When Mandy was no longer good enough for her owner, the rescue stepped in. Mandy died in peace when strangers were kind enough to reach out to a senior dog who deserved so much better than having been left alone at a noisy shelter filled with strangers who had so many other dogs to care for at the same time.

“It was my time to go to a better place where I will be surrounded by love for eternity… so to my owners Thank You. You were not good enough for me, those last 24 hours I was right where I needed to be. Mandy.”

Check out Mandy’s freedom walk just days before she died peacefully in her sleep.

Atlanta resident dreams of having her own animal sanctuary

Rachel Cohen has always been a risk taker. She went to school to become a pilot because she loved the adventure of high places. After many high paying jobs as a pilot and working as a recruiter in the corporate world, Rachel decided that although the money was good, none of these were her dream job.

Rachel has always loved animals, especially cats. This led her to volunteer at Lifeline Animal Shelter in the greater Atlanta, Georgia area.  She spends many days a week working with the cats, socializing them, cuddling the newborns and the kittens that are often frightened in their strange environment. Although Rachel loves volunteering at the shelter, she has her sites on something even bigger, running her own shelter; a shelter that would save cats and dogs from being euthanized.   She wants to rescue the animals that no one else wants; the feral cats that are deemed “unadoptable” and dogs that need extensive training or are deemed aggressive, an automatic death sentence in most shelters.

She has a soft spot for the animals considered “ugly”; those that may be maimed, missing a limb, deaf, blind, or suffer neurological problems.  All would be welcome at the sanctuary which will be appropriately named “A Home for All of Us.” The main mission of “A Home for All of Us” is to rescue over 70 million homeless cats and dogs in the United States and prevent them from going into the shelter system which has proven time after time to be a broken, faulty system.

If successful, the rescue could be responsible for saving 2.4 million shelter pets that would otherwise be euthanized just because no one wants them. The sanctuary will offer a safe environment where animals will be loved and given individual attention and socialized with other pets. Dogs and cats will be free to walk and play in a fenced in area.  They will be housed in kennels and facilities that will have heat and air-conditioning with a 24/7 staffed environment.

Until “A Home for All of Us” can acquire some land and an operating space, they are currently serving as a resource to support no kill animal rescues organizations throughout the Atlanta area. Many product donations have already started coming in from Chewie, Barkbox, and Nerf dog toys.

There are many ways you can help “A Home for All of Us” become a reality.

Just heartbreaking: 18-year-old seniors stuck in Georgia shelter

In another heartbreaking senior alert, Abbey and Bogey were surrendered on July 18 by their owner to a Georgia shelter. Abbey is an 18-year-old spaniel mix and her bonded pal is Bogey, a 17-year-old neutered corgi mix. We know these these two seniors don’t belong in a shelter, but here they are at Cobb County Animal Services in Marietta, Georgia – most likely on the look-out for their family’s return.

The Friends of Shelter Animals for Cobb County have posted their plight on Facebook and are asking for help finding these two dogs an approved rescue, a new home or a qualified foster situation. Immediate assistance for Abbey and Bogey is needed:

 “Both have arthritis and other age related health issues. These 2 seniors do not deserve to be stuck in a shelter and need to get out ASAP! Their immune systems probably aren’t great due to their age, so they might get sick here. Please come rescue this old couple!”

Information:

Abbey id# 606701 cage 77

“COAT LENGTH Medium HEALTH Vaccinations up to date. GOOD IN A HOME WITH Children.
Meet this sweet and special senior lady named ABBEY. ABBEY and her friend Bogie were dropped off at the shelter by their previous owner on 7/18. These sweet seniors did not deserve to be dumped at the shelter in their senior years and need to get out of the shelter as soon as possible! Abbey is 18 years old and is a small girl at just 26 pounds. The previous owner reported that she is GOOD WITH KIDS but did not leave any other information. The hard concrete floor of the shelter is no place for a sweet senior to rest. Abbey is up to date on her shots and will be microchipped and heart worm tested upon adoption. She will need to be spayed at the veterinarian of the adopter due to her age. Abbey and Bogie are waiting to meet you in cage 77. Abbey’s ID# is 606701 and Bogie’s ID# is 606700.”

Update: 14-year-old Muneca sad days are over

When a heartbreaking video of 14-year-old Muneca struggling to walk on what appeared to be an unattended broken leg, animal advocates were brought to tears. The neglect this dog must have endured for most of her life had to have been challenging, yet she held no grudges and balanced herself the best way she could engineer.

A video posted by shelter volunteer Karen Klink brought Muneca’s plight to the public through social media:

And in less than one day, Muneca was rescued by Saving Huey Foundation and Tracy Lystra.  On Thursday afternoon, rescue volunteer Cathi Perez held a happy dog – check out the smiles on both faces as they left the shelter.

“Thank you Faith Easdale for all your help, thank you to the staff and volunteers who took such good care of her, thank you Jodi Carter and Tanaya Nicole for all your help always, thank you Jul Dee , Jackie Aow and thank you Karen Klink for all you do for all the dogs here, all the love (and treats) you give and for your heartbreaking/life saving video of Muneca,” Cathi stated. 

It does take a village and the voices for those who cannot speak. We hope everyone’s heart is smiling.
