2-year-old pup lucky to be alive after witnesses saw her thrown onto street

Goldie is a two-year-old pup lucky to be alive. On Saturday, the tiny Chihuahua, with the radar-sized ears, had been thrown out into the middle of the street. No one saw who did it?

According to the Carson Animal Animal Care Shelter, Goldie will be available for adoption by midweek. Her PetHarbor listing states the following:

#A5137371 I’m an approximately 2 year old female Chihuahua. I am not yet spayed. I have been at the Carson Animal Care Center since 12/16. I will be available on 12/20. You can visit me at my temporary home at C316.

Freezing and badly injured dog ‘scooped’ up by Richmond shelter officer

In Richmond, Virginia, the sight of a shivering dog so badly injured she could barely help herself to stand up, has everyone shaking their heads in sad disbelief, knowing someone most likely intentionally abandoned her in frigid temperatures to suffer a slow painful death.

According to the Facebook page of the Richmond Animal Care and Control, the badly injured dog was found Tuesday morning on N. 33rd Street.

 “She was freezing and badly injured from what appears to be multiple bite wounds (both old and new). Officer Jones scooped her up and transported to VVC, where the team was able to stop the hypothermia and safely sedate to begin cleaning her up.”

The dog’s injuries appear to be quite severe, and at this time it is unknown if her eyesight can be saved.

“What they uncovered will require weeks of carefully managed wound care. We do not know if her eyes are salvageable and if her body will be able to fight the infection that has already set in. We need your help.”

The organization is asking anyone with information to contact the Richmond Animal Care and Control at 804.646.5573. The shelter is also in need of donations to help in this poor pup’s recovery. This poor dog didn’t do anything wrong – please share her story; we are confident someone will recognize her. Doesn’t she deserve justice?

Help: How can these 2 homeless seniors not break your heart?

In San Antonio, Texas, two bonded seniors were surrendered by their owner. Sadly they are way overdue and have already been spared once from having been humanely euthanized. How can these two homeless seniors not break your heart?

 

 

457842 Vicky and 457843 Nanny are two older gals who need a loving home to live out their senior years. Maybe it will take some time for these girls to warm up to a new person in their lives, but isn’t it worth it to have such beautiful companions? Vicky is described as a Staffordshire  terrier blend and about eight-years-old weighing 40 pounds. Her best friend Nanny, is an American bulldog blend who is 13-year-old and weighs 35 pounds. Don’t let them lose their lives in a shelter backroom.

 

Follow their Facebook pages here and here. Share their stories with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives. Their owner let them down – we can do better together.

‘Denver’ just craves love but no one has come for him at shelter

Denver craves love, but sadly no one has come to the Fulton County Animal Services in Georgia to adopt him. Just a goofy Labrador retriever and Boxer mix of affectionate hugs, there isn’t a moment when this three-year-old pooch turns away from an offer to play or to be hugged.

Here is Denver’s PetHarbor adoption listing.  “My name is DENVER. I am a neutered male, brown and white Labrador Retriever and Boxer. The shelter thinks I am about 3 years old. I have been at the shelter since Oct 27, 2017.” For more information about this animal, call Fulton County Animal Services at (404) 613-0358. Ask for information about animal ID number A499376.

Watch Denver’s video here and share his information with approved rescue organizations, family, friends and social media contacts. You will fall in love. Sharing saves lives.

 

Denver’s story has been shared more than 1,000 times, yet no one has offered to adopt him. Don’t let this sweet boy become a sad statistic. Animal advocate Gary Fromm wrote briefly about Denver’s plight on social media:

Heartbreaking: 11-year-old Chi wearing her tiny sweater surrendered to shelter

For more information, interested fosters or adopters are asked to directly contact the shelter. Per the Riverside County web site:

Two dogs dead and one barely alive in abandoned trailer tied to doorknob

The sole surviving dog, left tied to a doorknob that was rescued from an abandoned trailer in Bogalusa, Louisiana, is slowly recovering and has cause to celebrate Thanksgiving. In an inspiring rescue post, just perfect for the season of gratefulness, the Humane Society of Louisiana, posted the following good news on their Facebook page:

“We sincerely thank Dr. Liza Ledet and the great staff at Mandeville Animal Hospital for always stepping up to help when it is needed most.

You may recall that MAH took in and cared for dozens of animals who survived the Great Flood of 2016 at no cost and just yesterday took in “Thea,” a victim of terrible animal abuse!

We thank and congratulate our friends at MAH for the great services they provide our animal brethren and the generous spirit they exemplify. Well done, MAH!!”

The disturbing story began on Sunday when a man who was burning trash behind his home noticed a terrible smell emanating from the trailer next door. When he looked in the window, he saw the dead bodies of two dogs and a third dog barely alive that had been tied to a doorknob. Officers from the Humane Society of Louisiana arrived and rescued the dog now named Thea. (Baby Rescue) Thea was transferred to the Mandeville Animal Hospital and is being treated for heartworm disease, anemia, and hook and whip worms infestation. Without being rescued when she did, Thea would have likely died, still tied to a door knob.

According to the WafbNews, the Humane Society of Louisiana contacted the owner of the abandoned trailer – an elderly woman who said she had rented the trailer out to a man who promised to fix it up in lieu of paying rent.

“…We are confident that Thea will make a full recovery and that the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office will arrest the individual responsible for this crime and charge him with three counts of felony cruelty to animals,” wrote the rescue organization on Tuesday.

 

 

HSL has established a fund to help pay for Thea’s (Baby Rescue) medical care. Donations can be made online here. For more information, visit HSL’s Facebook page.

Owners walked out of shelter while terrified poodles going through intake procedure

Friday was the worst day in the lives of Osito and Pebbles. Who knew where the bonded poodles were going when invited to go for a car ride? Who knew, as their trusted mom and dad carried them into the shelter and told the staff they had decided to surrender the dogs, because they were having “personal problems”?  And then who knew, it would soon be the most heart wrenching moments for Osito and Pebbles as they were going through the stressful intake process and without a kiss, without a hug and without a word, the only family they ever knew walked out of the room and disappeared.

The very bonded senior dad and daughter need help, and it would be perfect if they could find a home to be together.

Shelter favorite of staff and volunteers – yet still on list to die tomorrow

What chance does Raider have to be rescued and live the rest of his life in a loving and comfortable home?  He’s a ten-year-old pit bull mix who was brought in as an owner surrender. Although he is a favorite of the staff and volunteers, he’s scheduled to die.  Not listed on the website and hidden in the back of the shelter, how is anyone to even know Raider’s life counts?

We continue to question how our shelters fail so many dogs. Why hasn’t the Downey Animal Care Center opened an investigation to charge Raider’s owner with neglect? Look how undernourished he is? Doesn’t he deserve better? Why is there no information as to his history – knowing if he likes to be with children, likes other dogs or even chases cats? Wouldn’t a pet profile help him find a home?

 

Instead the shelter had planned to euthanize Raider on Tuesday; shelter volunteers Sal Valdepena and Iris Bassas Avila were able to secure an extension for one more day. Advocates continue to pledge funds for an approved rescue organization to help. Share this dog’s plight with friends, family and social media contacts. We are his last chance. Just one more share, just reach out to one more person and that can mean the difference between life and death for this dog. Won’t you help?

Follow his Facebook page here.

Update: Shelter opts to terminate pregnant dog’s full term puppies

Three-year-old pregnant Miss Bella had been overwhelmed with confusion and fright at the Carson Animal Care Center. The poodle and Maltese mix to have been available for adoption on November 14, quickly created a social media outrage. Very close to having her puppies, the dilemma worried advocates:

“Saving Carson Shelter Dogs The county policy is to spay/neuter all dogs that leave the shelter. If one is pregnant and a private party wants to adopt, that dog will be spayed and the unborn babies will be aborted. This dog is way too far along and the babies are almost full term. They will have to individually euthanize each one if the adopter goes through with the adoption. If they release their hold to adopt her, a rescue organization can save her and they will allow her to go out pregnant. The shelter called the adopter, but they haven’t called back yet was the latest….”

Several approved organizations offered to rescue Miss Bella, care for her puppies when they are born and then adopt them out through their programs, however on Monday, an update posted on Saving Carson Shelter Dogs Facebook became worrisome:

“Update: 11/13/17 2:00pm PST. I just left the shelter. The Carson Shelter manager told me the dog is going to be spayed tomorrow. She will not be made rescue only. He is aware there is a rescue willing to take but that’s his final decision. The dog will be spayed tomorrow meaning the unborn puppies are going to be killed.”

Advocates were asked to politely contact the shelter and ask that Bella be allowed to leave with an approved rescue organization. And on Tuesday came the good news:

“Sal Valdepeña Update – We will be pulling mom unspayed today. A million thank yous to everyone fighting so hard for her.”

Then came the announcement everyone was waiting for:

” The Carson Animal Care Center just called me, and the shelter will be releasing her to us Harlee’s Angels unspayed. She will be allowed to have her babies and once she’s ready she will be spayed. This is all because you wonderful people Cared. Thank you, Sue Flemings Jessica Brooklyn Janice Kerrigan Lee Stevens Shawna Hamon Tere Molina Kacey Montoya Cheryl Hanna  and her village of supporters. I’m so thankful that county admin is working with us. This is the way to do it.”

This sweet dog has been renamed Melissa. Many thanks to Carson Animal Care Center for making this dog a priority.
