‘Big teddy bear’ losing hope after 1 year at shelter

Beautiful Moose has waited for more than one year at the shelter - and after his rescue fell through, he’s hoping that someone will read his story and save his life. Moose is a three-year-old boy whose body bears the scars of his prior life, but this big sweetheart just wants to love and be loved. A volunteer stated: “This big boy is sweet as can be. I love, love, love him. He’s a good boy who loves everyone and loves to get belly rubs.”

After he was treated for heartworm, Moose was supposed to go to a home, but no one ever came for him. The volunteer added: “He’s ready to leave. He’s getting so sad. I promised him that he would get his chance… And I feel like I’m letting this big, sweet boy down.”

Moose has spent more than one year at the shelter and he has started to lose weight - let’s not let him lose all hope, too. According to the veterinarian that saw Moose, his cherry eye is only cosmetic and he’s healthy and ready to find love.

Can you please open your heart and home to Moose? He has waited so long to know love.

If you’re interested in adopting this sweet boy, he’s waiting to meet you at Lee County Animal Shelter in Bishopville, South Carolina. If you are interested in him, please call (803) 428-2077 or (803) 428-7536.

We need help raising funds for our beautiful shepherd puppy with a broken jaw. https://www.youcaring.com/brokenjaw

Our director received an urgent call today (7/14/14) about an injured German shepherd hiding under coils in the back of a warehouse. She left immediately to help this poor girl.

We went to our normal vet only to find that she has a dislocated, fractured and infected jaw due to head trauma; most likely hit by a car. She has two teeth missing from her bottom jaw and a possible piece of her jaw missing. She is bleeding from the whites of her eyes and needed to be rushed to OVRS for immediate surgery. Please say a prayer, donate and share our newest rescue.

For direct donations, please contact Oakland Veterinary Referral Services at (248) 334-6877. Thanks so much to all who have donated so far.

hi again guys, ven here again. as some of you may know ive been kicked out and am in need of shelter. in addition to kicking me out, my mom is also kicking out my dog, tony. tony is a 6 year old pup who is 55 pounds and neutered. i suspect he is primarily australian cattle dog and husky. he is very low energy and non violent, he gets along with other dogs but will bark at them if they seem aggressive. in addition he will bark when people approach the home so he makes for a great guard dog! He is trained to sit, stay, shake, and heel. 

please if you or someone you know may be able to take him in, please send me a message here or through email to thekingkida@gmail.com

thank you so much

EDIT: i realise i forgot to mention, we live in northern virginia

Willie saw me setting up the area for the models and wanted to model as well. So I put his one-of-a-kind Reindeer cowl on him and took some pictures of him with the Christmas ornaments. He wasn’t feeling all that good this particular weekend, but getting to model perked him up. He loves that I’m doing more of my work in our back yard so he can visit with new people. He also likes that I don’t have to leave him so much. I like it, too!

This girl is scheduled to be euthanised TODAY, Tuesday 3rd December. She is located in O.C.A.S. in Orlando, Florida. PLEASE consider adopting or even fostering this lady to save her from being killed. Florida is a large state. There has to be somebody out there willing to take this dog into their home, even if it’s just for a short while until she finds her forever home. If you are interested in saving her then call O.C.A.S. on 407-836-3111, or email Jacqueline.Nanni@ocfl.net. If nobody shows ANY interest in her then he will be killed. If people show interest but can’t adopt or foster her straight away then they will give her some extra time!

Meet Jordan the Golden/Lab(?) mix. I question what he is mixed with since he’s a really big boy, but I’m definitely seeing some GR in him! Regardless, he certainly has a handsome look to him. With that big smile and large eyes, who couldn’t be happy in his presence?

He’d be a great athletic companion for an active family - but I also think he’d make a good cuddler considering he loved getting attention from us while we were outside getting photos of him! When I was done taking photos of him he expected to be paid in a hug and pets!

How old would you say this bulldog is?

8? 10 even?

Well, you’re wrong. This baby girl is only four years old. She was a breeding dog that had a complication and had a c-section that left her unable to have any more litters so she was literally thrown away like a piece of garbage. She was seriously underweight, with skin and ear infections and some sort of tumor/cyst on her foot.

To people who support puppy farms, who would rather hundreds of dollars for some papered puppy instead of putting in the effort to adopt, THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE SUPPORTING.

This girl was bred after her first heat, probably a little over a year old. She probably had litter after litter until her body literally couldn’t do it anymore. At four years old this dog has issues a senior dog shouldn’t have.

Shame on you people. Shame on your obsession with breed and papers and status.

This 9-Year-Old From the Philippines Built A Nonprofit, No-Kill Animal Shelter Out Of His Garage To Help Stray Animals

Remember this story?:

http://adoptpets.tumblr.com/post/77734451162/dogjournal-boy-takes-it-upon-himself-to-feed 

Now an update on the amazing transformation of the dogs & how the donations have helped the animals

Ken, 9, has grown up dreaming about someday having a shelter to help the stray animals that live near his home, but he never dreamed he could reach his goal so soon.

Ken did his best to help the local stray dogs and cats he came across near his home in the Philippines, he frequently spent time with them and offered them food, but he longed for the funds to open a no-kill shelter where he could really help his furry friends, according to The Happy Animals Club website.

Then, a few months ago, photos of Ken with three strays made their way onto the Internet, and people from all over the world began to donate money.

We got enough money to get the dogs I was feeding off the street, feed them high quality canned food, and provide them with veterinary care,” he wrote on his website.

Ken and his father were also able to build a temporary shelter for the three dogs, named Blackie, Brownie and White Puppy, in their garage. Ken named it The Happy Animals Club.

They gained a LOT of weight, their open wounds healed, and their fur grew back,” Ken wrote. “They also learned not to be scared of humans.”

He plans to put the pups up for adoption soon.

Thanks to the donations, earlier this month Ken was able to sign a one-year lease for a space where he can continue to create a nonprofit, no-kill animal shelter for street animals. He hopes to have it up and running soon.

Visit the Happy Animals Club webpage to keep up with Ken and to support his shelter.

Saddest dog at shelter has waited 3 years for a family -

Mira has been waiting at a shelter for three years for a family - and she’s hoping that you can help her finally find a home.

This gorgeous eight-year-old bulldog mix has waited longer than any other animal at Middletown Humane Society in Middletown, New York. Her friends are hoping that someone reads Mira’s story and is inspired to adopt her - or share her story to help her find her own special someone.

According to a volunteer Danyell, Mira is an amazing dog who just needs the opportunity to win your heart.

“I remember being so nervous of the dog from the corner cage who could eat my hand if she wanted to. I took her out to walk and she led me into the exercise yard. From that moment, my heart’s never been the same.”

Sad, barking Mira transformed into a happy, social dog.

“She took me into the exercise yard as if there was something she had to show me. And one year later, I’ve realized that she did show me something: she showed me her heart,” Danyell stated.

“The way she was wiggling made me laugh so much. I sat on the bench in the exercise yard and she jumped up and laid across me like a lapdog. It’s obvious that she doesn’t know her size! It surprised me when I looked at her in that moment, because I remember thinking, ‘This is why you haven’t been adopted yet - because nobody takes the time to get to see this side of you.’”

After this breakthrough play session, Mira had to go back into her kennel - but she has remained in Danyell’s heart.

“After playing, I put her leash on her and brought her back inside. It broke my heart when she knew which kennel was hers, she’s been there too long. That was the day that I met the real Mira: The Mira who thinks she’s still a puppy, who wants a bed of her own and toys she doesn’t have to share, who wants a family to love her and give her the life she’s never had, the Mira who wishes people would take the time to see the real her,” Danyell stated.

Let’s make 2015 the year that this gorgeous girl finally gets what she deserves: A loving forever home where she’ll never again have to worry about ending up at a shelter.

Mira is an eight-year-old Bulldog mix who’s looking for a home where she’ll be an only pet. She’s spayed and she’s wonderful with children. You can read her pet profile here.

Are you looking to add to your family? If so, please consider Mira. Visit the Middletown Humane Society’s website here.

Do I have any followers in Phoenix? This couple just moved out of their home and left their dog on the curb with their sofa and other trash.

He is currently at a high kill shelter and in need of adoption! Please share! I wish I had my shelter already, I would fucking drive down there and get him. He must be so confused and scared!

It’s so amazing that a dog who was used as a bait dog was able to overcome the trauma, and be so loving with other dogs.

Lisa Chiarelli just did an amazing work as a foster mom, working with all these dogs, and making them happy balanced dog.

ATTENTION NORTHERN TO MID-MICHIGAN RESIDENTS.

THIS IS LEXI AND SHE IS AN ABSOLUTE SWEETHEART. SHE BELONGS TO MY BEST FRIEND SARAH AND CURRENTLY, WHILE WE’RE DOWNSTATE FOR SCHOOL, HER MOTHER WAS SUPPOSED TO BE TAKING CARE OF HER AS OUT APARTMENT DOESN’T ALLOW DOGS.

AND CURRENTLY WE BELIEVE THAT HER MOTHER MAY BE ABUSING HER DOG. ON TOP OF THAT, SHE CALLED SARAH TONIGHT TO TELL HER SHE’S GETTING RID OF LEXI. WE NEED TO FIND THIS BABY GIRL A HOME REALLY SUPER FAST BEFORE HER MOTHER CAN FIND SOMEONE TO DROP THE DOG ON. THIS IS SARAH’S DOG. NOT HER MOTHER’S. IT IS LEGALLY LICENSED UNDER SARAH’S NAME.

SO PLEASE, IF YOU OR ANYONE YOU KNOW WOULD EVEN BE ABLE TO FOSTER HER FOR A WHILE UNTIL WE FIND SOMETHING MORE PERMANENT, WE’LL PAY FOR FOOD AND EVERYTHING, JUST MESSAGE ME OR cheezuscrustonacracker IMMEDIATELY.

DOG INFO: LEXI IS SPAYED AND UP TO DATE ON SHOTS. SHE IS A TWO YEAR OLD BLACK LAB, MEDIUM BUILD. SHE IS AN ACTIVE DOG WHO NEEDS SOMEONE WHO CAN PLAY WITH HER AT LEAST A FEW TIMES A DAY.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP US OUT BEFORE THIS DOG FALLS INTO AN EVEN WORSE SITUATION.

PLEASE READ THIS

My friend had a dog walk up and paw at her door the other day. She took him in and inspected him. He is a huge sweetie, and didn’t show any signs of aggressive behavior. He was and is, however, quite emaciated. He’s a big guy, at only a year or so old. He has a chain collar, but no tags and is not microchipped. He should weigh 75 lbs., but only weighs 30.

She took him to get his nails clipped, fed him, and housed him last night, but she cannot keep him. We both fear that if he’s taken to the vet or shelter, they will put him down, and obviously no one wants that.

Boomer, so we call him, looks to be either Doberman or Rottweiler, judging on his markings. He’s incredibly sweet and gentle. What he really needs is someone who can take the time to love him and nurse him back to health. I believe he can make it, with enough love and dedication.

He is currently in Akron, Ohio, and is looking for a forever home. If you are interested, please contact me. Let’s give Boomer a chance at a good life!

King is located at NYCC and has developed kennel cough and has so far had absolutely no interest in him which means he is “at risk for euthanasia”. He is a friendly dog who can be rehomed with other dogs and walks well on the leash. Please consider adopting King as he needs a retirement home!

http://www.petharbor.com/pet.asp?uaid=NWYK1.A1024292

To adopt King, please email adoptions@nycacc.org with his animal ID#A1024292. Adoption hours are 12-7PM daily.
