"Sam is now being called Fred, because we already have a Sam.... Fred is amazing. He is putting on weight well, getting along with everyone and yesterday was even romping a little - trying to play! His vet check was somewhat uneventful. He did have tapeworms and whipworms, so has been treated. He continues the lyme treatment and is receiving ongoing treatment for his eyes. It appears (from scars) that he has had masses removed from inside his eyelids more than once. He still sees in both eyes, but not well. He follows me around the house and seems very happy, as are we. My husband and I have two other VERY elderly dogs and we have a passion for them.

Fred loves blueberry Sammy Snacks (cookies) and chicken jerky and eats like a horse. I think at some point we will cross over from worrying about him being too skinny to having to watch his weight. You would not believe how he has filled out in the past couple weeks!

Bless his heart, help Sam find a home to spend his last few years. 
WHO IS HE? *From Zella: This is Same, a senior cocker spaniel that was brought in as a stray to the Harrisburg Humane Society.  He is shaved down because his coat was very matted when he arrived.  Sam is a sweet boy, and needs to get out of the shelter asap. The vet guesses he is at least 12 years old. A shelter is no place for any dog, let alone a senior boy. Can anyone offer foster or forever care? All he needs is a safe, warm, loving home to live out his remaining years.  Please contact me directly if you can help.  Thanks!  Zella
WHERE IS HE? Harrisburg Humane Society, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

Nashville, NC: Please help Gunner find a home before its too late.

Nash Co Animal Shelter- Nashville, NC - GUNNER - BLACK LAB - WILL DIE VIA GAS CHAMBER unless rescued
This is Gunner. He came to the shelter as a stray. Appears to be full blooded. Gunner is 21 inches at the shoulder, Approximately 75lbs, and 6-7 years old. Gunner is very sweet and wants to sit in everyones lap! His hold time up Friday 9/23 at 3:15. This means his stray hold is up and he can leave the shelter on this day. It also means that he is at risk of being euthanized once the shelter runs out of room, which is usually within a few days.

If you can help, please contact Shelley Milburn at  I can assist with transport within a 1-2 hour radius of Nashville, NC which includes Raleigh/Durham, Greensboro, Emporia, VA, Fayetteville areas.  This shelter does not provide any vetting.   Please crosspost if you cannot rescue!

*From T: Cat and fowl rescuer passed away this week. Many cats, ducks, geese, chickens & turkeys in immediate need of temporary or permanent housing. Assistance also needed care-taking and transporting animals. We are especially desperate for food donations and help with vet expenses. Please respond if you can offer any assistance. WE NEED FOOD AND OUTLETS FOR THESE ANIMALS IMMEDIATELY. Has also left a disabled family member behind who was dependent upon him, so the situation is very desperate and funds and help are needed. No money was left to even cover cremation or funeral costs for this individual who sacrificed everything to help these animals and so many others. Please help someone who has helped so many others.
Will miss you my friend... I owe you so much. You rescued me too. ~T
