This place is one that I created to place requests for help. I get a number of them from some groups that do rescue or similarly try to re-home furry ones. Please check or recommend as a place for anyone looking for an animal companion.


Here is the first case of begging for help:

LETS GET THIS GIRL OUT PLEASE! CAN SOMEBODY FIND IT IN THEIR HEART TO SAVE THIS GIRL!!

Shelbyville, KY: BEAGLE NO ONE WANTS HER.
REJECTED

Please contact James at the shelter for any questions regarding Bessie. His number is 502- 633- 0009.

This baby is URGENT!

Attached are pictures of Bessie, a Beagle ( possibly with some Bassett in her) that is in the Shelby County Animal Shelter (aka dog pound ).


Bessie. It is a fitting name for her. She has been in the shelter for 3 weeks now with no interest. She was the first dog I spotted as I entered the kennel area of the shelter. She was curled up in a tight ball on an old blanket that had been placed in her kennel. As she slowly lifted her head, I looked into the most pathetic, sad eyes. Her poor nose was running with yellow mucus and she was trembling from the chill in the air. After a few seconds she seemed to come alive . She struggled to sit up and then, without any notice, she began to " talk" to me. And talk she did! She' s a very vocal girl! Instead of walking her to the front office area for pictures, I decided to carry her. She seemed to love the attention when I picked her up.


Once I got her to the front office area I noticed two things about her. First , this poor girl has been bred so many times that her teets almost hang to the ground. Secondly, after several tests , we realized she is deaf.


She has a sweet , unforgettable face. Trust me, you would fall in love with those eyes.


I'm really worried about this girl. We need to get her adopted or into a rescue quickly. She needs a warm bed and veterinary care.
She is worth saving!

The ACO estimates that she is approximately 5 years old.


She' s in impound #3.


Her adoption fee is $65.


This shelter is a rescue friendly shelter and does not charge reputable rescues a pull fee. Please keep in mind that the receiving rescue MUST make all transport arrangemen ts. This is a government operated facility, there fore the staff CANNOT transport.


IF YOU CAN' T HELP BESSI E, PLEASE DON' T DELETE BUT FORWARD ON TO OTHERS.
WE MAY BE HER LAST HOPE! !!

Please contact James at the shelter for any questions regarding Bessie. His number is 502- 633- 0009.


Thank you!

Hello everyone.

Please please post a comment or contact the links in this story.
Please - time is of the essence, and every email/note/comment MATTERS !!!
Let's show them people in North Carolina that we CARE and that a lot of folks all over are aware of their situation.
Here the article:

Bestfriends

Also, here the link to the Board of Commissioners on the matter.
Please click on this link and it will take you to the place where you can email them with your concerns about this situations:

Board

Please take a minute to email them.
It means the world to the pups.
This is the ONLY WAY they may stay alive and there is 127 of them, poor babies.
Here is an example of the letter that can be sent to them (just fyi):

"Dear Mr. Triplett:

It is time to end the stereotype, hyped-up perception that all pit breeds are dangerous.
I urge you to let Best Friends help you in this situation with the seized dogs and let their experts/rescues asses/handle them.
It has clearly shown that all but one Vicktory dogs have been successfully rehabilitated and will be rehomed.

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2008/m ... index.html

A very few cases of cruel abuse by irresponsible owners/druglords/status seekers have ruined the image of these beloved breeds.
The Pitbull is one of America's most popular family pets, because of it's loyalty, it's smart character (many become search/rescue/sniff or therapy dogs) and it's sense of humor.
Just today a clip on Oprah about Oogy the dog... showed the world once again, how one of these magnificent canines (he was a bait dog) has overcome the worst and has become an integral part of a family - like many others, with the help of experts and loving handlers/trainers.

We must stop the demonizing of these breeds - fed by hyped media and rooted fear of the unknown... instead we must educate and pursue those who so contribute to the sad fate that condemns these dogs : the irresponsible owners and cruel, ignorant people like Vick and the likes - no dog is born mean and it is discrimination at best to kill dogs for their physical characteristics."

Please move forth and set an example of compassion and recognition - with the help of experts such as Best Friends - these dogs can be rescued - they deserve that chance.

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely, "


Please Please Please. They need us right now.

C ross posting. Please help if you can.

PLEASE, THIS POOR WOMAN IS NEEDING HELP WITH FINDING A HOME FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL CAT THAT SHE HAS. THIS LADY IS HANDICAP AND HAS MOVED INTO A FACILITY THAT WILL NOT LET HER KEEP HER CAT. SHE IS LOW INCOME AND HAD TO GO INTO A LOW INCOME APARTMENT AND NOW SHE IS HIDING HER CAT BUT IS FEARFUL THAT SHE WILL BE FOUND OUT AND WILL HAVE TO TAKE HER CAT TO THE POUND. WE DON'T HAVE A FACILITY AND WE HAVE TO DEPEND ON FOSTER HOMES AND I DON'T HAVE ANYWHERE FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL CAT TO GO. PLEASE READ BELOW, CAT HAS EVERYTHING DONE (EVEN A CHIP). THERE IS NO FEE BUT WILL ONLY GO TO A GOOD HOME WITH MY APPROVAL. PLEASE PASS THIS ON. PAT LAMBERT/COLUMBUS HUMANE SOCIETY/WHITEVILLE, N.C.



This is Prue she was born Feb.05, 2006, she has been spayed, micro-chipped, and is up to date on all her shots. She doesn't use a kitty litter, she likes to go outside to go potty. Prue can walk with a leash. When I lived in the city I put her on the lead and when I stayed in the country I put her on the lead until she got to use to the area. And as long as I didn't live on a busy highway I let her run free. Prue is afraid of cars. She likes the out doors for a little while at a time. Prue will scratch on the door to get out or to come back in. She likes to play and she loves to have the bottom of her paws rubbed and scratched under her chin. Prue doesn't mind to have her ears cleaned or her nails cut as long as your careful. Prue is allot of fun and loving. If I could I would keep her, but I had to move into a handicap apartment and I can't . I want her to have a loving home with someone who will love her as much as I do. Prue will always be in my heart. The new friend she gets in her life is very lucky to have her for best friend. If you need to know anything else about Prue please contact :lambertpat54@yahoo.com and she will send me your info.

THIS BABE NEEDS A HOME--SPECIAL NEEDS

(PS -- Some heartless creep abandoned this sweet little soul.)

Bartok at Petfinder

Here is his write up: Kansas City, KS

2/4/09: Bartok is just about the sweetest little guy you'll ever meet.
And certainly one of the most unique.

Bartok was brought to us as a stray and he was extremely malnourished.
He is deaf and he's also blind in one eye and has limited sight in the
other.

But what a sweetheart-- he's very mild mannered and he loves to be
held. He gets along great with other pets.

We're guessing that he's a Chihuahua/Whippet mix, among other breeds.
He's got a white shorthair coat and giant ears-- he's named after
Bartok the white bat in Anastastia! He's about 3 years old and he
weighs 9 lbs now and should gain a little more weight. He has been
vaccinated, micrcochipped and tested for heartworms and he'll be
neutered before going home.

Bethel, Connecticut:
URGENT NEED FOR THESE TWO BOYS!!!! (READ BELOW PHOTOS)
MOZART (Mo Mo)
BEETHOVEN

Hi All,
I am in desperate need of finding a home for these two very handsome boys. I have been caring for them for the past year for an elderly gentleman living in Senior Housing here in Danbury. Their owner became gravely ill and passed away January 22nd. I have a very limited amount of time to find them a new forever home because there is no family to help, and they are staying at a client's home who is away for only six more weeks. I have to remove them from the home before he returns because his dogs are not cat friendly!

Mozart and Beethoven have been indoor cats their whole lives and had been their owner's life and only source of love!!

MoMo is extremely affectionate and is a real lover...Beethoven is a bit more shy until he gets to know you and then he's a real mush too!! I can't stress enough how wonderful they are...if my cat would tolerate them I'd keep them, but she can be very mean. smile
Both are in great health and were health checked by the vet and their shots have been updated. Mozart is almost 8yrs young, and Beethoven is going to be seven.
Beethoven loves to sit in the window watching the world go by...MoMo likes to be where his human is. smile

In all the time I have been by to care for them they are very "neat and tidy" boys. No accidents outside their litter boxes and other than Mo's occasional passing of a hairball or two they have never been a problem. I promised Bob that his cats would find a loving home to live the remainder of their days...and I am determined to see that promise through.

They are lovely, easy going boys. I have been providing their food and litter this past year and would be willing to continue to help out with supplies if needed.
They really are attached to each other and need to find a new forever home together.Like I said, I would take them myself, but my furbaby is 14yrs young and won't tolerate other cats. I just need them to be loved and cared for!!! HELP!!!!
Thank you....
Lora

Hi Ellie,

I was wondering if you had any contact that might be able to help out

like that make me so mad. It breaks my heart when I hear a story like
this one.

This precious baby needs an angel. Do you know anyone who might be
able to help? If so, please contact the woman direct.

Thanks for your time.

Hi !
The kitty is currently still at the job site with my boyfriend, I'm
not sure what town that is but he and I live in Manchester and that's
where Mr. Kitty will be until we find him a home. It is a long
haired, indoor, orange and white neutered male with claws.
Unfortunately age is totally unknown at this point and I am
unsure whether or not Rob (my boyfriend) will have any further contact
with the women who left him behind. Rob doesn't have a picture phone
but he is looking for a way to try and forward me a
picture. He says the kitty seems in good shape besides his
fur being a bit matted. I will hear more from Rob between 12 and 1
and I will contact you immediately with any new info.
Thank you so much for helping us. I appreciate animal lovers like
you and Carrie so much.
I will be in touch ASAP.


> Hi, My name is Shelley Brownbill. My boyfriend works for a moving
company. This morning he was moving a women's furniture into the
truck and she told him she had no where for her cat to go so she was
leaving him behind. The cat is male, neutered, tabby and is a indoor
catâ?¦ which she plans on leaving outside to fend for himself.
Because the humane society asks for $45 to surrender an animal that is
not an option for us because we are on a very tight income and my
boyfriend is being laid off. The tiny apartment we live in now does
not allow pets, however, we are sneaking him home with us because we
cannot bare to leave him behind to fend for himself. Is there a no
kill shelter that you work closely with that you could suggest? I've
been searching all morning and have had no luck with any of the websites
I've seen. Of course if you had any space open it would be a total
blessing but I'm sure you hear this type of story multiple times a week
and there is only so much room. I am currently a sponsor of your
foundation and think what you are doing is truly amazingâ?¦ any
advice you could give would be so greatly appreciated. Thank you for
you time.

Please help this gorgeous BIG boy if you can!.
He is on the euth list if not rescued.
Cross posting.

Please email Marianne Daniel at mainecoon@satx.rr.com asap if you can help this poor guy.

Thanks so much for cross posting.

My guess is that he's not feeling well (may have a knot in his coat) and that's why he reportedly bit the owner when she was grooming him?
