Reposting: They Remain in Kill Shelter on Borrowed Time...Dec 28. Please help keep these two together.
WHO ARE THEY? *From Peg: These two beauties were brought in together as strays by an Animal Control Officer… They were found tied to the same tree. Apparently they had been in our care before and were always redeemed by their owners. Not this time. This time nobody came for them. Romeo is an absolute love whose tail NEVER stops wagging and Juliet is a bundle of nerves until she sees Romeo. Then she is confident going into to play bow and chasing Romeo all over the director’s office. These are going to be dogs who do NOT do well without one another. They have obviously been with each other their whole lives, although Juliet is much younger than Romeo, she has not known life without him. Please consider giving these 2 their forever home TOGETHER. Apart, Juliet will surely crumble and I do believe Romeo will be heartbroken. Can a group take these 2 together and ensure they are adopted together? Or can someone open their homes for these 2? They are more bonded than any two dogs I have ever seen and it is heartbreaking to think they may not be able to get out of here together. Please consider pulling these 2 dogs and helping them stay together. As a municipal shelter, that is something we aren't able to do. Please help them. Please cross post and email blast these guys. We really want these two to go together!!!
