*Marietta, GA: Sweetest 7 y/o black lab, Jennie, in danger

7-12-12:  Jennie is safe in a foster home!!!
All Jennie needs is a good diet, some exercise and a whole lot of TLC.  Jennie is spayed, HW tested negative, vaccinated and even microchipped.  Please consider giving this darling dog a chance. 

She came into the shelter over a month ago as a stray and no one ever came looking for her.   I don't think she stands a chance getting adopted from the shelter which is so sad b/c she is such a wonderful dog.  Jennie is a 7 yr old, extremely obese (she weighs an amazing 93 lbs) black lab. She obviously has not been well cared for. Add the stress of the kennel and the warn weather to the poor diet and Jennie's coat isn't too pretty either. We had her at adoptions yesterday and more than one small child remarked "look at that big fat dog" as if she were a joke. The thing is, this is THE sweetest dog.  She wags her tail happily at every new dog (large or small) or person she meets. She gets so excited to see the leash and wants so much to go for walks. Its a bit slow going right now because of the extra weight and the pressure its probably

*Chapel Hill, NC:  Sweet Tigger Needs to Know Someone Does Care

8-11-12:  RESCUED!!!
This is Tigger. He is a male, brown brindle and black Chow Chow mix. His owner recently moved and let him loose, and now he is at Orange County Animal Control in CHAPEL HILL, NC.
He has lived his life outside in all kinds of weather.   He was beaten daily with a broom for two years, and last winter, watched as his best dog friend froze to death next to him during a blizzard. Animal control refused to act, despite multiple complaints from a neighbor. He was abandoned and is now at animal control, where he DIES ANYTIME. Will you Adopt or Rescue this sweetheart and show him the love he's never had?
