Anchorage AK: Precious kitty just wants to be loved

Shadow is a calm, outgoing and independent girl who is eight years young. She will eagerly come to meet you, and is quick to rub up against you for pets and attention. She has previously lived with children and done well with them, she avoided the family dog in her previous home and ignored the other cats. She is missing an eye but has no associated medical needs, and does just fine without it. Shadow is declawed in front and will need to be an indoor only kitty, and she is happy with that idea. Shadow is an affectionate, quiet kitty who is looking for someone to love in a forever home. If that could be you, please come and meet this beautiful girl!
*SHADOW* ID A193585 
Spayed/Neutered • Up-to-date with routine shots • House trained • Declawed • Primary color: Black Anchorage Animal Care and Control, Anchorage, AK

Cuthbert, GA - $$ 100 $$ for Sweet dog in pound by herself for a month, then forgotten. Now her time is up

Her time is up, but this sweet dog just wants to be loved. Please hurry!
$100.00 donation to approved rescue that saves this sweet girl!
*from Laurie:  Around Thanksgiving, this extremely sweet girl appeared in a neighborhood in Cuthbert. Acting like a puppy, she would jump in cars wanting to go for a ride, scare a neighbor's cat because she wanted to play with her, and aggravate people because she wanted to play with their dogs when they took them out to walk.
One lady had to feed her cat on top of the car to keep her from eating the food. They said she showed no aggression or animosity toward anyone or anything. It was just her puppy-like behavior that disrupted the neighborhood.
The lady that called the city to pick her up cried because she hated doing that to her because she is so sweet.

Her luck hasn't improved. The couple that take pictures of the pound dogs and place them in the paper and post them on the internet have been extremely ill. They are the pound dogs only link to the outside.  They were unable to do this, and now her time is up. The city has agreed to give her one more week.  Her rabies tag, shown in the picture that was taken before she went to the pound, was traced to a Boykin spaniel. His owner said that his dog had lost his rabies tag.

She is in good condition except for a small sore under her neck that was caused by her collar. She's probably 1 1/2 to 2 years. I'm judging her age by her looks and behavior. The kennel was locked and I was unable to look in her mouth. She's obviously had a litter of puppies. Please contact Laurie at ( or 229-732-6958 or 229-310-5064.

Bodie and His Dad Would be So Grateful for Donations towards Surgery Costs

Bodie's Story - Intervertebral Disk Disease (IVDD) in Dogs 
Bodie's First Day Home
Bodie's First Day Home 
Nearly three years ago, I adopted Bodie. I was hoping to give him the best life possible after I found out what the first part of his life had been like. 

He was born into a hoarding situation, in which he lived for two years. His life was one of filth and squalor, and he lived off of Oreo cookies that had been thrown into the yard for all of the dogs to fight over. When the property was investigated, they found he trusted only the dogs in his pack. From there, he was taken to a non-profit rescue organization, deemed healthy and adoptable, and subsequently placed in a foster home for a year. However, no one wanted him because he was fearful, anxious, and timid, and to make the matter worse, the children in that family didn't like Bodie. They teased him mercilessly, and wanted him gone. When I overheard that on my visit, I decided right then that I was taking him, regardless of his issues. 

Machine doing nerve stimulation
Bodie has made great strides since the day he became part of the family. He was a constant gentle companion to his brother, Bishop, in the final months before Bishop's death. And although he is still a bit anxious around others who visit the house, with lots of love and some training he has learned to trust that no one will hurt him, and therefore will allow people to be close to him.
Before injury... "I love camping!"

Over time, Bodie quickly became adjusted to his new lifestyle with me. Some of his favorite activities are camping, fishing, going to the dog park, and hanging out at Dog Beach! He's so wanting to return to the activities that make him most happy! 

Please scroll below to read about Bodie's injury, and the costs associated with it. If you would like to help Bodie, please feel free to make a donation. Each dollar you donate will be spent solely on Bodie's ongoing medical care! Any amount is so very greatly appreciated! Bodie and I promise that your kindness will be paid forward!!
A ChipIn or Paypal is available for your convenience at the following link:

Bodie's Injury:  On November 10, 2012, we went out for the evening, and when we left, Bodie was, for all intents and purposes, fine. We got home about six hours later and found Bodie unable to walk correctly. He hobbled around in a squatting position and wagged his tail. As I attempted to help him, he did not yelp, cry or howl upon my touch. We immediately rushed him to the Doggie ER. 

At first sight, the veterinarian on duty said he was sure it was a ruptured, bulging or degenerating disc in his back, which needed to be confirmed by a MRI. The news was not good. It was a rupture into the spinal canal with compression of the spinal cord, and there were two options: surgery or Euthanasia. I told

Biscuit Needs home or rescue now - 15 yr old JRT Greenville SC

Update - Biscuit is losing her temp foster, and is now BEYOND URGENT. She was staying in a cold outside kennel, but now she has nowhere!!! Please someone step up for her!! If you can help, please email 
 This is Biscuit. She is 15 years old, spayed and heartworm negative. She has her tail docked and is only 15 lbs. She is very sweet and a total lover. I also believe she is housetrained. In the picture she has a mole on her eye but she no longer has that, it has been removed. Our vet checked her out and she is healthy and heart is good. The owner brought her in to have her put down because he didn't want her anymore. He has had her since she was a puppy :( We begged him to wait and we will find a place for her. She is also great with other dogs. If you can help, please email LAURENBETHEA82@GMAIL.COM.

Charlotte, NC: Rookie on the way to the shelter for being too loving

This sweet 2-year old Rottie girl wants nothing more than to share all the good things that come with being part of a family, but the family she is with wants her gone immediately so she is headed for a kill shelter.  Decide for yourself and please help us save her.  She sounds wonderful and just wants to be included. Taffy has taken up her cause and will be the contact - there is no time so act quickly, please!

 Can anyone help? My husband has a co-worker that can't take care of her dog anymore. I know, I know. Why do these people get dogs to begin with? It kills me. Anyway, here's all the info I have on her. Need to find her a home ASAP.
Owner was going to take her to shelter but she told us that the shelter said they'd put the dog down. Ugh. Please please can everyone send this out? She is located in Charlotte, NC and I'm willing to help with transport if needed. She needs the dog gone asap she said or she will have to take her to shelter where she will be put down.  Please contact me if you can take her, or know who can.  Thanks to all
Contact Taffy

Here's info from owner: 
 Her name is Rookie. She turned 2 years old, October. She has been fine with the kids other than she doesn't know her own strength and will jump on them and knock them down. She barks at night until I bring her in the laundry room, then she sleeps all night. She is house broken. She is very strong. I can not take her on walks for this reason. She has developed a motherly bond with my shitzu. She is a great dog. I just can't control her and my back yard is not enclosed. She needs to run. Not spayed and the last rabies record  I have expired August. no vet visit records since then.

Lafayette, TN: Ellie was struck by a car

Waldport, OR: Elvis and Ozzy The Doxies need rescue!! - Circulate Please! URGENT!


*From Janice: "...We tried finding them a loving home around here, but we didn't have any luck, and we might have to move again next month, and we can't take them with us, because this time we really will have to find a place rather fast.  It is really hard to find a new place that accepted dogs and soon the twins will start crawling... We are really broke right now, and we can't take them to Portland, and we tried really hard to find a loving home for them close by.  It has been really hard. Ozzy allergies are getting worse, but we can't afford taking him to a vet.

P.S.  We really want to keep them together, as they really enjoy each other company!!
I think it would help Elvis to adapt to a new family so much better, if he could remain with Ozzy.

They have a very large crate, a small crate, two carriers, blankets, etc."

Aslan’s Cat Sanctuary is a HOME for cats who have been diagnosed with Feline Leukemia. Historically most cats diagnosed with this dreaded disease were euthanized on the spot. With education, new treatments and further understanding of this condition, some people have come to be willing to give these innocent and often healthy cats a chance for a great life.

Sanctuaries have popped up over the years but securing a coveted spot in one of the great sanctuaries, is practically like winning LOTTO!!!

One such sanctuary is ASLAN’S in upstate New York. Aslans was decimated by Hurricane Irene. Through the kindness of MANY, Aslans was rebuilt. It was a miracle via the generosity of so many who gave both monetarily and physically while working there to rebuild the flooded HOME that was the only HOME to these animals.

Along comes Hurricane Sandy and although Aslan’s was extremely fortunate to escape the wrath of Sandy many other people and places were NOT. Aslans has stepped up to HELP displaced cats with feline leukemia. Aslans is NOW HOME to 80 cats. Homing and caring for 80 cats with feline leukemia is a loving, lofty goal and it will take lots and lots of money to keep these cats healthy and vetted regularly as needed. We know it CAN BE DONE...with your HELP.

Please review Aslan’s most recent newsletter featuring their beautiful HOME and delightful residents. Pictures are worth a 1000 words!

This sanctuary is a Work of WILL take funding to serve the additional cats that Aslan’s WOULD NOT turn their back on. Desperate times mean desperate measures.
Thank you for your kind consideration on behalf of The Aslans Cats!!!

*Lafayette, TN: Willard doesn't understand what he did wrong..

11-30-12:  Willard was adopted by a gentleman who works for the U.S. Humane Society and they are a match made in Heaven!

Thankfully, he was removed from a home of abuse, fed and comforted so he no longer cowers in a corner and cries, but unless someone steps up to give this boy the home and family he deserves, he will be euthanized on November 23rd.  Willard, someone out there needs you as much as you them..we are trying, baby boy.

 Willard, male , 2 yrs, 74lbs, not neutered, was extremely mistreated and starved, neighbors stated he was beaten daily for no reason, removed from his former owners last week, AC is feeding him three times a day now, he only weighed 50 lbs when he came into the shelter.  He's really relaxed now, very happy, walking on a lead now, loves being around the other dogs  at the shelter , he was extremely scared when he arrived at shelter, he would try to hide in a corner and cry.

Folks, Willard deserves a chance, surely there's someone out there for him. I sure hope someone will step up for him, you won't be sorry, he's a very grateful dog and shows it.

Willard will be put down on 23 November 2012.

Located in Lafayette Tenn. Contact Parker at 423-278-4622 or

Please share and cross post folks I need help and so does Willard.

*Garner, NC: Hit by car, no help for a week. Please help!

10-9-12   A rescue has stepped up for Josie! Keep her in your prayers that she will keep her leg and regain her sight. 
"Her name is JOSIE and she is feeling much better now that she is on medications. We won't know about the front leg if it will improve or need to be amputated. Also her eyes are very infected and at this time cannot see.  We are treating her eyes very aggressively and will just have to wait and see how she responds.  She does have a Rescue group who has stepped up to take her so that is also good news."  Carol

10-8-12 UPDATE:  Her name is Josie; she has now had all of her vaccinations; she is heartworm NEGATIVE (yay!).  Her temporary home can only keep her until 11/19/12.  Here are more details about her medical condition and treatment.  

O.K. here is the update on Josie:  She had her HW test and is NEGATIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Her eyes are very infected, she cannot see. Dr Szabo is treating with eye drops (Dr. English ) Ciprofloxacin 3 X day, Simplicef antibotic, Pred 10mg 2 X day for 3 days then 10mg 1 X day for 10 days, also Flurbyprofen eye drops in both eyes 2 X day for 10 days and Tramadol 2 tabs 2X day.

Right now this is her schedule to hopefully clear up her eyes, and if possible help the leg. We are going to wait and see until next week then make a decision with Dr. B.

She has received her 1 month heartguard + Tab and Revolution Flea topical.

She is soooooo sweet and was a good girl.

If you can donate to help pay for her medical care, the total for today is $156.73. 

Phone # 919-847-9396  Under FCF JOSIE.

This precious little girl was hit by a car, picked up by
animal control and allowed to languish in a cage without medical treatment and care for a week.  Thanks to someone who could no longer bear the thought of this neglect, she was pulled for help.  This is a very temporary situation and she needs a foster, rescue or a permanent home.  Please help us find that for her.

Carol at Feral Friends rescue will be temporily fostering until we get this dog’s leg patched up.

Looks good for her keeping this leg won't know until next week. Dr. Bartfield coming to look at it. We hope to have enough funds to also cover her vaccs. And spaying once she is clear on the leg.

IF ANYONE CAN OFFER TO TAKE THIS NICE YOUNG FEMALE DOG INTO RESCUE… she has several guardian’s over here now that have sponsored their money to give her second chance in life.  Dr. Bartfield going to be treating her of SNAP as special request from us. (great vet)

No name dog  was hit by car.  Picked up by A.C officer … left to suffer all week on hard concrete cold floor and was just pulled out of shelter yesterday.

Thanks to these dedicated and selfless rescuers, a neglected, yet still noble soul found love in his final hours on earth.  Please help them in anyway you Bodie's memory.

Hi all,

I just had to share this rescue I just did on Tuesday for Elise Duran. Partially to ask for small donations but mostly to share with you this tragic story and to let you know that I'm also there on the "front lines. My heart and gratitude goes out to those who are there full time.

As you probably know,  Elise is known for helping the animals that are offered free on Craigs list and the Recycler. She keeps us all posted on these poor animals that can end up as Lab test animals, bait dogs or victims of torture. We try to get them before they do.

She asked me to help her rescue a horse and a pot belly boar in Lake Elsinore.
The owners were moving to Hawaii and had to get rid of their animals.
My trainer and I drove 120 miles to a ranch WAAAAAAAY up a mountain above the lake.

Took us 45 min to load Bodie onto the trailer. Bodie was rescued 8 years ago with another companion horse. Both were emaciated. They were once parade horses. Both were white and extremely emaciated. The woman rescued Bodie and nursed him back to health. He was in a good space lots of shade and room to roam. But he looked bloated to me. Wonderful, gentle horse. Turns out he was a Camarillo Parade horse. The ones that are in the Rose Parades year after year.
Elise was going to help sponsor his care till we found him a permanent home. On the way home I was already considering keeping him here indefinitely. It made me feel good that he could live out his last years here at the Poindexterosa. 

It took us 3 1/2 hours to get home. At 8:30 pm we pulled up to the barn to unload him. He stepped off the trailer, took a few steps, sat down and died. His stool was black. The woman must have known his body was shutting down and wanted us to take the responsibility of taking care of his poor old body. No wonder she was in such a hurry to get rid of him. Poor old guy. I was heartbroken. The next day I was faced with the task of trying to find someone with a back-hoe to bury him. I finally found someone and now Bodie is at rest.

I am disgusted at how people don't take responsibility for the care of their animals and we are always the one that have to clean up their messes. It's sad, exhausting and expensive. But extremely rewarding when things go real well like the Stallion at Devore that we rescued last year. As you all know so well, these are the chances that you take in rescue. The good, bad and the ugly.

Poppie is a boar. He needs to be neutered and his tusks needs trimming. ($300).
He also needs a permanent home.
Digging grave for poor Bodie was $250, gas and trainer was $225 and pig food runs about 40 per month.
So any amount you can donate would help allot. We can't continue to rescue these poor animals without your donations. God bless you all and beyond all~ God bless the animals.

*Lake City, FL: Precious deaf white pitty mix - just look!!!!

This was our first look at Winifred
 and it touched our hearts. Little did
we know the pain she was feeling.

10-26-27:  Thank you from Winnie's Foster
I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who helped with Winnie's Chip In for her surgery!! Just to let you know our goal was $800 based on the estimate. The surgery came to $907 and we raised $849!!! We at the rescue are extremely grateful for all the wonderful people who made it possible to save this very special girl!!! It really is true that every little bit counts. Winnie is doing great and is on the road to recovery. It is amazing how much happier her personality is already! We are very hopeful that she will be in a wonderful new furever home soon!!!
Again...THANK YOU!!


"I am the person fostering Winifred aka Winnie and I sent out the original message asking for help. I actually work at a rescue but, we like most do not take owner surrenders so I was simply trying to crosspost for the lady who found Winnie. HOWEVER, once I realized that Winnie was injured and not just in need of a home of course we took her in to our rescue. She is scheduled to have her leg amputated tomorrow and now we are just trying to raise money to cover her surgery. Winnie's ChipIn   For more pictures and updates check Winnie's Facebook Page

*Tarboro, NC: Please don't give up on Bear!

11-30-12  One week ago, Bear was finally flown to his forever home in Jacksonville, Florida.  His best friend is a little white bundle of love named Coconut and he is slowly learning to trust humans again.  His new owner needed Bear as much as Bear needed a new family.
Another plea for Bear, Aussie/Chow mix.  He just knows his perfect family is out there and he is ready to be part of it.  He is such a good, good boy.

Bear was in the shelter in Edgecombe County, curled up in the corner.  When I approached him he tried to hide, I touched him, he flinched as he thought I was going to hurt him in some way.  I picked him up, he was limp with fear.  I took him outside in the play yard to walk him around on the leash.  He relaxed a little but was still very afraid. Every time I touched him he flinched.  

He was picked up as a stray so I have no way of knowing what torture he endured in his early days.  Normally dogs like this are euthanized as soon as their hold is up, but something about Bear is so special, I didn't want to give up on him.  He is heartworm negative, neutered, is up to date on all shots and in very good physical condition.

He's been in a loving foster home for a month learning to trust humans.  He has a couple of canine friends that he loves. He gets along extremely well with other dogs, children and cats.  He's not happy being inside, just loves hanging around outside with his buddies.  I knew his foster was temporary and it's time for him to move on to a home of his own.  Please share this with anyone who might want to have Bear in their family.  He lived with me for two weeks prior to his going to a foster home, and he's so easy to love.  He's around forty lbs, medium, has an Aussie tail.  Precious boy.

Please contact me at 252-908-1171 
You can also reach his foster mom, Donnie Brown at 252-813-2647.

Someone told me he was Red Heeler, so be it, but he has an Aussie tail, sweetest dog in the world!!!  
Thanks, please network for me.  Peggy

*Atlanta, GA: Bear, pining for his owner who isn't coming back for him

10-11-12   Rescued!!!
Bear is really sweet and very confused. On the day he was surrendered to Animal Control he was so excited - oh yay, daycare. But now he just sits at the fence watching and waiting and no one is coming back for him. 
It is heart breaking to see.  Bear is very adoptable.  Please give him a chance!  
Bear is a 4 ½ year old male shepherd mix that was surrendered to the shelter on 9/28 by his owner.  His owner had to get rid of Bear because her father is terminally ill and she had to move in to take care of him.  Bear is housebroken and he is good with other dogs.  He walks well on a leash and is pretty laid back once you get him outside.

*Atlanta, GA: 7 year old laboratory beagle needs a retirement home in one month!

10-09-12 Adopted!!!
"Hello Everyone!
I am here to give you an update on Norm. We have found him a home! A big thanks to Neil and family in Long Island who has stepped up to the plate to take Norm and give him a loving home! I have started Norm's adoption papers and in a few short weeks Norm will be on his way to New York!
Rightly so, we have undying gratitude for military sacrifices to save us; shouldn't there also be a category for lab animals? This sweetheart has served humankind in a study for 7 yrs. Surely some human can offer him a post-lab life with green grass and unlimited affection?
Hey all,
This is Sammie. I am the student trying to find a home for Norm. I am so excited that so many people are trying to help me. However, please only pass his information along to people

 10-7-12  Read the good news from Wesley.  Jonah and Olive are going to be fine!
Hey Everyone,
Jonah and Olive officially have a place to stay until I can get back on my feet, which I hope to do as quick as possible. This was confirmed today with a wonderful woman, Sheila, and her husband who have several dogs of their own and a large, fenced in yard. I am very confident that they will be well cared for and loved just as much as they are by myself. Thank you everyone who has helped get the word out and made this possible. I wish I could personally e-mail each and every one of you and tell you how much this has meant to me, but that would take a very long time so please except this mass e-mail as an official thank you from the bottom of my heart. I think it goes without saying that I have many good deeds I need to pass on after this. 

Wes, Jonah, & Olive

Out of the shelter and now in a foster home, but she's been in foster before. Please don't let her have to go back to the shelter again... help us find Taffy a forever home.  See below for her web page and Facebook page.
*From Levy and Barbara:
Hi! My name is Taffy. I'm shouting inside and no one seems to hear me. Please… listen closely to my story.
I want to tell you many things so that you will understand me, adopt me, and let me be your forever companion. I am about five years old now, with gorgeous amber eyes and a handsome taffy-colored coat. Four years ago I was found by Castaway Critters Pet Rescue running along a busy highway. I was only a little over a year old at the time. I was very hungry, thin, covered with fleas and pregnant. They took me to the shelter where I had three puppies; one of which died but the other two were adopted into loving homes. In spite of all my issues, I am a beautiful girl (both inside and out).

You probably know that my being a pit mixed-breed scares people because of all the bad press we’ve been given. It's unfortunate because I’m actually extremely sweet and really love people. As with most dogs of any breed, there are some dogs I just don’t like, so I am looking for a parent who wants an only child. I love to be hugged, take walks in the park and have my tummy rubbed.

Because the shelter has so many animals staying here, I am often overlooked as most people want those “foo foo” little dogs that come in. So here I remain, 4 years later, with decent accommodations but with little to look forward to except my next meal and the hope that someone will take me for a walk and then to McDonalds for a burger. Even this doesn't happen often because the volunteers and workers at the shelter are so busy helping all the animals. I understand that, but it still makes me sad.

I’m so sad sometimes that I don’t even feel like eating and am hardly interested in treats anymore. All I want is for someone to love me like I would love them. Let me ride shotgun with the wind blowing in my face and take me home. One time I went home with another pit. The family had a mom and dad and children. It was so much fun and I even got to sleep on their bed! Unfortunately, this was a temporary situation because the people couldn’t keep me forever. They liked me a lot, but I found out that’s what fostering means. When I had to go back to the shelter I was depressed because I loved that home and family. I really want a home of my own.

Please help me, I’m so mentally desperate for someone to love me and take care of me. I am begging you for a chance to prove what a wonderful friend I will be. I can show you that I’m really a “foo foo” dog in a pit bull costume. If I were a human, I would be crying and you would see and hear me… and you would take action. Won’t you give me a chance? 

PLEASE… DO YOU HEAR ME? If you do, give my friend Levy a call at 404.219.4431 and ask her about me!! You can also email her directly at I would be so grateful if you could give me the forever home I so rightly deserve and desire. Should you not be able to help at this time, thank you for reading my story and keep me in your thoughts. Maybe you know of someone who can help so please forward my story.

Make me a happy dog forever and I will give you all my love.
