Lizzie and Boomer, 2 bonded dogs temporarily in a boarding facility and their owner is running out of money and time. Please help them find a new home.
*From E: Please crosspost to find these two gorgeous dogs a new home (preferably together)... owner is distraught about having to rehome them and has not been able to place them on her own... please keep any nasty comments to yourself... this is about helping animals and not about putting people down... HOW CAN YOU HELP? Contact is KAREN.COLLIER@hcbe.net
*From Karen: Hi. My name is Lizzie. I am a 9 year old German Shepherd mix. I am spayed and up-to-date on my shots. I’m active and in really good health. My mom rescued me from the pound when I was only a year old. I was very skinny and quite shy. My mom fed me and loved me, and I have become a very sweet girl. I get along well with people, and I am good with other dogs as long as we are properly introduced. Unfortunately, my mom is moving to a place where she cannot have a fence for me and where I do not have room to run. Rescue and re-homing organizations are not interested in me because I am a “senior.” My dream is to find a home where I can run and play and be loved, ideally with my brother Boomer (see below), as we have been together for 8 years and are best friends.
Hello. I’m Boomer, a 9-year old Chow/Spitz mix. People tell me all the time that I am a VERY handsome guy. I am neutered and up-to-date on all my shots. I am friendly and active. I like to meet new people, and I get along well with other dogs, especially my sister Lizzie (we even prefer to snuggle in a single dog house together). My mom rescued me from the pound when I was only a puppy. Unfortunately, my mom is moving to a place where she cannot have a fence for me and where I do not have room to run. Like Lizzie, re-homing organizations are not interested in me because I am a “senior.” My dream is to find a home where I can run and play and be loved, ideally with my sister Lizzie (see above), as we have been together for 8 years and are best friends. She is “my girl,” and I take great pride in protecting her. One time, we took an adventure trip from home and Lizzie hurt her leg. I protected her from strangers until our mom came for us. I am loyal to her and to my mom.
*From COLLIER, KAREN: Good morning. I am supremely frustrated, broken hearted, and desperate. Due to a recent change in my living situation, I can no longer keep my two beloved dogs that I’ve had for eight years. They are wonderful companions, and I only want for them to find a good home. I am trying so hard to be a responsible pet owner and find them a good place to go. I have contacted friends and family, as well as work acquaintances. Nobody knows of anyone who can help, nor can they help themselves. I have contacted rescue and rehoming organizations, only to be turned down by all of them, citing that the reason is that my dogs are “seniors.” Some have graciously offered to cross-post them, which I welcomed at first. Then, I realized that this led to a number of people emailing me to condemn me for being a bad pet owner, rubbing salt into an already-festering wound. I am trying SO hard to do the right thing. I am currently paying to have the dogs boarded, and I am driving 60 miles round trip after work each day to spend time with them. Simply, I cannot keep this up. It is taking a toll on me, financially and emotionally. Moreover, I know that it is not healthy for the dogs. I have started looking for anyone in the region who may be able to help me. Honestly, I teared up when I found your web site. I hope and pray that everything I read is true and that you can help my babies and me. I just need to find them a place and know that they’re okay.
Please, please say that you can help us.
