*Nash Co Animal Shelter, NC -Adorable puppies banded together for survival - FINAL PLEA

7/5//12:  All have been rescued!!!
All 4 managed to stay together. Please help them find good homes after all they have been through.
*From Shelley: These sweet little girls are still there. They have had NO prospects. The shelter is full.
This group of four young female dogs were picked up together. There were 6 total, but two had been hit by cars. These pups appear to be related, but vary in age. Some are a little older than the others. They seemed exhausted when they were put in their kennel, like they have been on the run along time. Their names are Emmie, Ember, Emily, and Emma. Emmie is so tiny! You can see from the group photo that these girls are very bonded. Their stray hold is up, they are listed as CRITICAL. The shelter euthanizes by gas chamber.
If you can help, please contact Shelley Milburn at shelleymilburn1@gmail.com. We do work with out of state rescues as long as you can cover vetting costs and arrange transport.
Please share! Thank you!

Tarboro, NC: Family has to move right now and these dogs need somewhere to go

7/5/12 UPDATE:  Purdy and Moo are staying with a family member temporarily, but they still need a permanent place and a new family, so please continue to share their story for them and their owner.
This is URGENT! This family must find a home or rescue to take their precious dogs Purdy and Moo.

*From Peggy: I got this message below about a family who has to move right now and these dogs need somewhere to go. Please contact Sarah Godwin with questions or for more information. sarah@sunshinewireless.net
*From Sarah: This first pic is of Purdy.  She is a jack Russell chihuhua mix about 7 years old.  She is extremely friends with everyone and loves to snuggle and sleep under the blanket with you. … Moo is Purdy’s son.  He is 2 years old.  He is very loving, but takes a little more time to warm up to you.  He takes a bit longer with children than adults though.  Purdy and Moo have never been away from each other.  But of course, beggars can’t be chooser and any home is better than no home!

HOW CAN YOU HELP? The contact is Healal Hamad. His number is 252-813-8663.

*Rome GA - He looked up at me & cried

8-9-12:  ADOPTED!!!!
"... when we headed back towards the building, he slowed down, he stopped, he laid down, and then he looked up at me with the most soulful, begging eyes, he cried softly"
*From R: Here is the story that was told to me about a Very special boy that we've all come to know as "Elvis".
A volunteer's story: "I had some free time and had to spend it with Him.  He's quiet and doesn't "jump out" at you like some others, but I was drawn to use what little time I had to spend it with him.  And now, I cannot stop crying for his life.  I approached his cage and he looked at me like, "Really? Me?!!   You're going to pay attention to ME??"

We went outside for a wonderful walk, and he was so good on the leash.  I swear he was smiling as he felt the sunshine, and looked up at me!!   But then, when we headed back towards the building, he slowed down, he stopped, he laid down, and then he looked up at me with the most soulful, begging eyes, he cried softly.  I sat down too, he put his head in my lap, and I felt the warmth from his body, and I just burst out crying.  I couldn't stop, this loving warm dog was going to be killed and thrown into a trash bag.   It is too much to bear the thought of it. 

When we did get back inside closing the door on him was the hardest thing I’ve ever done this boy is SPECIAL. I can't explain it, because it's something you have to experience for yourself. PLEASE save him!!  Make a special post!!  He will Give you his Heart, and Never Leave your side!!"
Spare "Elvis" the Horror that Awaits!!
