Neglected 16-year-old Tigger left at shelter by his owner to be euthanized

A neglected 16-year-old poodle named Tigger was surrendered on Monday to Carson Animal Care. His family asked that their dog be euthanized because he was old. Of course, Tigger doesn’t understand. Once the only family he has ever known walked out of his life, and the frightened pup was placed in a shelter kennel, he huddled into the corner and shook.

Video#1:

A volunteer at the shelter has asked for Tigger to be moved to the medical ward where it is quieter and much more personal.

“We asked them to put a blanket but he won’t go inside…He needs help as soon as possible.”

Humans failed this dog miserably: Rescue group hopes to restore his faith

On Thursday afternoon, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC responded to an urgent plea for help from a high kill animal shelter in Texas. Edwin’s humans failed him, and there he was – at the end of the road with no where to turn. Critically injured and left to lie on a dirty shelter concrete floor, who would even want to adopt him?

Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of the rescue organization shared Edwin’s plight on Facebook after posting the following heartbreaking video:

“Scared, alone and not feeling well all because his humans failed him so miserably,” Stacey wrote. “We just cannot sit back, watch this video and not help poor Edwin. He’s got a lot of strikes against him.”

“If you looked at this video and it made you angry, the hate only belongs to his hideous owner who allowed this…”

And indeed Edwin does have a number of strikes against him. Arriving at the organization’s partner emergency veterinarian hospital, Edwin suffers from heart worms, anemia, eurlichia (transmitted by ticks) and is severely emaciated.

Labrador retriever previously adopted from shelter dumped after hit by car

A two-year-old black and brown Labrador retriever name Peaches had been adopted from Miami-Dade Animal Services when she was a cute and cuddly puppy. She thought her family would love her forever, but on Tuesday, Peaches was hit by a car. Instead of taking her to a veterinarian, her family surrendered her to the shelter – right back where she started from as a pup.

Although her family may have had financial limitations, the shelter does work with owners to help. Unfortunately Peaches’ leg was too badly damaged from the accident and had to be amputated by the shelter veterinarians. Her family never returned.

“What is most heartbreaking, is that despite the betrayal and the trauma that Peaches had been through, this baby is still the sweetest, most loving girl, and as you can see, she is able to get around on 3 legs,” a shelter volunteer posted on Urgent Dogs and Cats of Miami‘s Facebook page.

“Peaches desperately wants to love and be loved in return. We need everyone to please help this poor baby find the loving home she deserves. The only hope she has is us.”

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

Dog fighter sentenced to 50 years with 15 to serve in prison

A Polk County, Georgia dog fighter was sentenced to 5o years with 15 years to serve in prison Judge Richard Sutton decided on Tuesday afternoon. Devechio Rowland was found guilty of 107 felony counts for dog fighting and 107 misdemeanor counts for animal abuse last month. Rowland faced a prison sentence of 642 years. He will also be on probation for 35 years.

 

According to WsbTv,  at least 107 dogs were described as “half-dead.” Disturbing video showed the dogs chained to trees nearly starved to death. Polk County Police Chief Kenny Dodd stated it was the worst case of animal cruelty the department had ever seen.

In 2010, Rowland was arrested on animal cruelty charges and an association with a dog fighting ring, but the case was dismissed after one of the main witnesses died.

At least 30 animal advocates were at the courthouse when the judge announced the sentence. Some of the onlookers cried while others were saddened that Rowland’s prison time  wasn’t at least 20 years.

Many of the dogs have since been rehabilitated adopted. Read the previous article here.

Stray dog Sadie escaped shelter traveling 8 miles to find her puppies

In the small suburb of Riverdale, Georgia, Sadie had been living behind a store for several months. When Clayton County Animal Control found her with a litter of puppies, she was brought to the shelter. A local rescue organization offered to care for the puppies until old enough to be adopted. Sadly, Sadie, the mother dog was left behind.

Partners for Pets offered to rescue Sadie, secured a loving foster home and arranged to pick her up last Saturday. Somehow Sadie escaped from Animal Control, and rescuers and staff suspected the dog had left searching for her puppies. When captured, she had been full of milk, and her maternal instinct had to have been very strong.

 

“I have asked for the location they originally picked her up so we can start there,” Partners for Pets posted on their Facebook page, asking everyone to be on the lookout for Sadie.

Just four days later, Sadie was found! An update on the rescue’s Facebook page told the story of a miracle:

“OUR MIRACLE SADIE.
Sadie is the girl who escaped AC last weekend and we now know why. This girl was determined to find her remaining 2 pups which she did. She is scared and went 8 miles but found them and will be going to a rescue with her 2 tiny “runt” little puppies. We can’t thank Clayton County Animal Control enough for not giving up and determined to find this girl. She is a MIRACLE and she had an Angel watching over her. God Bless all of you for this sweetheart.”

Not only was Sadie rescued again, but her remaining two puppies must have been hiding the day Animal Control officers found the young family. Who could believe Sadie traveled eight miles back to where she cared for her puppies to find the last two?

And on Thursday afternoon, Sadie left the building with her puppies.

“SADIE and her two puppies have left the building. Free at Last. Thank you Asst. Commander Turner and Supervisor Jones for helping us get them out.No catch poles for this sweet girl. She loves chicken and had some good fried chicken nuggets today. Her two little ones stayed close. To all who helped, we can’t thank you enough. This was a Miracle and God was watching over her and her babies.”

Just another reason why dogs are so special, admired and loved.

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.”

Bruce lived on the street for two years waiting for his family to return

For two years Bruce lived on the streets alone; he waited and waited for his family to return. In fact, the three-year-old pit bull and Labrador retriever mix was so loyal even though he was homeless, he remained on the same street where his owners  abandoned him when they moved away.

Bruce is now at the San Bernardino City Shelter and deserves a home and a family of his own. Neighbors had been feeding Bruce, and although the shelter staff agrees he is a very nice dog who gets along with people and other dogs, Bruce has become extremely depressed. His head hangs down as if he has nearly given up hope of ever being loved again.

Bruce needs human kindness; this dog needs to be rescued. Follow his Facebook page here.

Bryce is so frightened: Heartbreaking life for a puppy so young

Bryce is a black and white collie mix brought to Polk County Animal Adoption and Recovery Center in Cedartown, Georgia on April 2 as a stray. No one has been to the shelter to claim him as having been part of their family. Bryce is so terrified, yet despite his fears, he shows no aggression.

Video:

Volunteers at the shelter are working with Bryce. Most likely no one will ever know why this puppy is so timid.

“This is Bryce. He is very scared. He wants to be loved but he’s unsure about it right now. He really gets upset when you try to put a leash on him. I put a collar on him for now so he’ll get used to that and hopefully that will be a step in allowing us to put a leash on him. He’s available to rescue if someone wants to work with him. He is beautiful and sweet if you just go slow.”
