NY/NJ - OREO, a beautiful Bobtail Tuxedo Cat after being passed up too many times for cute little kittens is giving up...

"Oreo is stunning. Oreo is sweet. Oreo is great with other cats, and even dogs."

"Rescued from a kill shelter, he has been living in a crate for months, passed over again and again as people choose "cute little kittens" over him. He is shut down and depressed, and he needs a forever home (or even a foster in a home environment) NOW. He is approx 1 1/2 to 2 years old, fiv/felv neg UTD on shots and really just a perfect cat. Oreo needs a loving human to bring him back to life. He is medium haired, has stunning Tuxedo markings, and cute little bobtail."

L.A., CA shelter, Please help save beautiful, neglected Jitterbug

*From Andrea:  $200 pledges to save this precious girl's life but there's no time left so please answer her prayers now...!!!  thank you!!  THE KIND OF DOG THAT MAKES YOU SO SAD
WHO IS SHE? Jitterbug (A1244878, 2 years old, a solid 53 pounds) *From Andrea: ... has never known the joy of dancing, of being carefree.  Ignored, probably beaten, she came into the shelter, collar embedded in her neck, with a litter of puppies.  Her impound photo said it all  --  head bowed down, no hope in life.  That was all I saw for quite a while  --  even though I walked by her kennel at the annex.  I never noticed the sweet soul, waiting for someone to pay a drop of attention to her.  She blends in, she's dark and reserved.  She must have looked up at me, sadness covering her, dragging her down. Everyone who meets Jitterbug now comments on her amazing orange brindle coat and her Roman nose.  They find her charming. want to take her out dancing and show her some happiness at last.  Jitterbug has learned to wag her tail and will take on a play bow when you come to visit.  She's devoted to those who reach out to pet her, talk her for a walk.  Jitterbug does fine with her kennel mate and that seems to be true with all other dogs.  Jitterbug is all heart plus a few dance steps that she's waiting to show you.  Please consider adopting / rescuing this girl who is out of time.   
WHERE IS SHE? You can meet her at the South L.A. shelter  3612 11th Ave., L.A. 90018
HOW CAN YOU HELP HER?  Call (213) 485-0117 or -0119 and ask for A1244878.

And please let me know if you do save her  --  as others always ask what has happened after pleas are circulated.  With thanks, Andrea (323) 363-4909

Iowa - Lovable Long Haired Doxie with IVVD

WHO AM I?  My name is Mars and I’ve been told that I am “out of this world” cute and sweet!  I have IVVD and that scared my owner who doesn’t think he can care for me.  I wish he could understand that not being able to use your back legs is not a death sentence and that with a little help, I’ll be just fine.

A wonderful doctor named Dr. Holland is trying to help find me a new home.    It is too late for me to have surgery, so I am doing some crate rest right now, but I am a healthy 4 year old boy and she knows that I would do great in a cart. I’ve been neutered and up to date on all my shots.  A nice lady has offered to give me my own wheelchair and I just can’t wait to bring my “wheels” with me to my new home – I just know we will have a ball!

HOW CAN YOU HELP?   If you have any questions or want to see me (and maybe take me home!), please contact Chris at 515-344-1242 or email
Wait till I have my wheels, then I'll race ya!
Please help get the word out by crossposting and sharing Mars far and wide.  He deserves to live the life he loves so much.

Many, LA: Precious Tabitha Will Steal Your Heart!

GOOD NEWS!! Tabitha has been adopted!!  Tabitha is patiently waiting in a kill shelter for someone to bring her home and keep her safe. WHO AM I?  My name is Tabitha and if I could wiggle my nose and have my own family to love, I would do it in a minute! I try so hard to be a good girl and sit pretty when people come to pick out a doggie, but no one has noticed me yet, except this nice lady who is trying to find me a home.  This is what she said about me: 
"Tabitha is a love!!! She heartworm  negative and is a shepherd mix!!! She weighs 26 lbs and is a year and half old!! She has not had alot of love and attention. She was just left to find food on her own. The shelter picked her up. Her coat is beautiful!!! She would make a great family pet We will have her spayed if anyone is interested!!!!   She has no pedigree and really no particular breed and I know that makes it harder, I just want her to have a chance!!  She is a such a good girl!!

Jacksonville, FL - A cry for help - young pregnant woman loses job, home.

Desperate for temporary re-homing for her pets as she gets back on her feet after job loss.
My name is Kristina Johnson, I live in Jacksonville, Florida. I just recently found out I was pregnant and lost my job and my fiance’ was laid off. My fiance’ and I had to move into separate places and neither allows animals.

No one in our family or our friends on the "web" sees dogs as we do. I have two amazing dogs that I see as my children. In the middle of August all of this happened. We were initially forced to send our babies to a pound, and it was the hardest thing we have ever had to do. After 10 days of no sleep and many tears we decided we needed to get them out, and good thing because they were both very ill and scared from being in the pound.

Sumerdale AL - Please help save Goliath !! He is in a Shelter not much time!!

 Goliath is SAFE! he went to texas cane corso rescue 2 weeks ago. A comment from Tiffany with Baldwin County AC: "When Goliath arrived at his foster home, the foster's Dachshund tried to attack him....Goliath looked at him and walked over to his dog bed and laid down and ignored him! He's been doing wonderful!"  WHO AM I? My name is Goliath. I'm a pretty big guy, but I'm a puppy at heart. I just want to be loved. Do you think you would have room for me? I'll be the best dog you've ever had.
*From Tiffany: This big lug is either a Cane Corso or a Neopolitan Mastiff. He is a blue and cream brindle with a docked tail. He is very good with people and knows basic commands. We do let him run (supervised) with the other dogs and he goes around and marks everything, but then comes right back to us. If we are currently petting another dog, he butts in between to get all the attention. Goliath is 91#, but is skinny for his frame, so he will eventually weigh more. He was covered with fleas and ticks when he police car. LOL If you are interested in adopting or rescuing Goliath, please let me know. Thanks

Richmond, VA*** Robbie, yellow lab mix_Stuck in a kennel for over a year!***

This precious boy has been rescued!!!
*From Sherrie: This boy really needs a foster home.  Does anyone know of one who could help him out?  He is a perfect candidate for a family dog!!
WHO IS HE? ROBBIE -- *From Dee:  He's a big frame Yellow Lab mix, about 7 yrs old, about 65 lbs, he was acquired as a puppy from a neighbor who's dog had a litter. He was a family pet for several years, played with her kids, was in the house, etc.  recently he's been tied outside a lot, as her situation has changed. He has only known his owner/family his entire life, so he was scared and upset when she abandoned him.  He's been at my house now for about a year, and now he's going stir crazy in his kennel.  He really needs a foster home, where he can interact with people. He's friendly, outgoing, loves people, follows me around, comes when he's called, will sit for a treat and loves his rawhide chews. He doesn't like other male dogs, but behaves himself at outing events. He has a current rabies vaccine, and utd on vaccines and HW preventative. I don't remember his vet but will check his paperwork, think he was only seen for his initial neutering and shots.  He's active and playful, and seems younger than 7 years.  WHERE IS HE? Richmond, VA  HOW CAN YOU HELP? contact Dee Hawkins 434-531-4355,

NYC, Shine needs a new home and some TLC, only serious rescuers please!

Do not call unless you can actually help this boy. Please do not call to just voice opinions about his situation.
WHO IS HE? SHINE *From Shasty:  Shine is a poor 7 year old boxer mix, who lives without sunshine in an alley basement.  The only blessing in this dog's life is an irony; that his owner does not want him!! The blessing in this sad fact is that he would be surrendered without questions. Please if you do take him don't give the owner any attitude. Just "thank you" and walk away... He also seems to not have any food or water bowls there in that dump with him. Please save this poor boy.  It would likely have to be a savvy person, and it may be best not to bring him into an environment with other dogs or cats.  As god only knows that he will need some exclusive care and love to come back to himself. WHERE IS HE? NYC   HOW CAN YOU HELP? Only if you can rescue, please contact: 917- 951- 2685, or email

Madison, MS - a sweet little pup with special needs

Sweet little Biscuit went to a foster home in Alabama!
WHO IS SHE? Biscuit....born deaf and losing her eyesight as well. See her story below.
HOW CAN YOU HELP? Contact Caitlin
*From Caitlin: Hi, my name is Caitlin and I am a veterinary technician in Madison, MS. We have a dog here at our hospital that desperately needs help! Biscuit is a 16 month old, spayed female Am. Staff. Terrier. She was born deaf and was recently diagnosed with PRA. Her owner can no longer care for her and brought her in 2 weeks ago to be euthanized. We asked her to give us a couple of weeks to try to find a rescue group that might be able to help. I have had a few groups offer to put up a courtesy post, but the problem is that we have no where to keep her in the meantime. The previous owners agreed to pay for a couple of weeks of boarding, but after that I'm afraid that she will be put down if we can't find her a foster
