*Sparta, TN: Matti and Curly facing euthanization unless someone steps up

 5-30-13:  Wonderful Update!!  "Just got off the phone with a lady that's covering the cost of vetting and transporting Matti and Curly both together to a rescue in CT! They are confirmed safe!!!! Thank you so much!" 
Curly - just a puppy beagle
This is a final plea by a rescuer who has reached the end of her options due to major life changes.   Matti and Curly need a rescue, foster or adopter immediately.  Read their story in their rescuer's own words.  Please crosspost far and wide or contact her if you can help.
I'm begging for help one last time for Matti and Curly.  Matti jumped the wall again this morning and we spent an hour looking for her, praying she didn't get shot by a farmer here.  In the meantime Curly was doing all he could to get in the chicken coop after more chickens.

Matti - 2 year old English Coonhound
I can't keep risking the chickens lives.  I've already lost two and that's not fair to them.  I can't keep risking Matti will be shot by a farmer for going in his pastures.  I've done all I can for these two for the last six months, but when their rescue wouldn't take them and others haven't had room, it's just become too much.  Other

*Ft. Worth, TX Owner died/nurse and rescues trying to honor her last request to save her dogs HELP needed NOW!

Pepper is still waiting for her forever home but she's in a fabulous foster home and her foster mom says she's the best dog she's had in a long time.  I had her for the first few months and I agree with her completely.  She's very shy around strangers but once she decides you're okay, she's the most loyal and loving dog anyone could want.  And she's absolutely gorgeous with her long black hair and those beautiful golden highlights. Elderly woman dies leaving one request for her nurse: to find homes for her 3 dogs. Two were adopted, but Pepper is still waiting. 
YouTube video of Pepper and her puppies:

The Whole Story
*From KL: All three lived their entire lives in the same backyard with a very elderly owner (the woman was in her eighties when she died). They all appear to be in good health although they're not spayed (I assume) and probably not current on vaccinations. Their rescuer is doing the very best she can to help them find new homes but her funds are very limited so a week in boarding is pushing the limits for her. If she doesn't find a foster to take one or all of them quickly, she'll have no choice but to take them to a shelter.

Ft. Lauderdale, FL: STILL NO HOME: Owner died, 2 bonded Seniors HOME ALONE - need foster or permanent home NOW!


2 SENIOR DOGS, JANE & FRANK, LIVING IN AN EMPTY HOUSE AFTER OWNER PASSED AWAY, PLEASE HELP FIND THEM A GOOD HOME. 
The Jack Russel female is Jane and she is about 12 years old, the male Yorkie is Frank and he is between 11-12 years. They have been raised together and we would like to keep them together. Their owner just passed away from cancer and they are living in an empty home with someone coming in to feed and walk them daily, which is not an ideal situation. They are house trained and spayed/neutered, and up to date on shots. They are so cute and well behaved.  We would like to find a foster home or permanent home for these two together so they can live out their last years in peace. Would not want them in a shelter environment at their age.

Lincoln County, NC: No Rescue Offer Yet! Blind 5 yr old Carolina dog dumped at Lincoln County shelter NC

 5-29-13 UPDATE AND NEW CONTACT INFORMATION

 
                               
I smell fresh green grass!!

                                        


                                             Contact Sylva Southwell at 540-907-8890


Tiger is a 5 yr old male blind Carolina dog that was an owner surrender at Lincoln Co Animal Control in NC. Before being surrendered, Tiger lived on a chain for 5 years. 1-2 years ago, he was attacked while on that chain by something and he became blind as a result. The owner did nothing.The owner just left him on that chain. Skip a few years ahead and the owner dumped him at a kill shelter. Sylva Southwell with Believe in Buster Animal Rescue offered to help him. She transported him ON 5/26/13 from NC to VA and he's currently with her now.  Following is her update on this precious boy.
 We have renamed him Tyler. We're now looking for Tyler's forever home or a Special Needs rescue group for help.  Tyler is a friendly and gentle little guy. Sylva reports that he loves human attention and loves belly rubs. He seems to do well with his blindness and is not timid at all. He is very, very friendly! He has a scar on one of his front paws which probably was quite deep at some point but this does not impede his walking. He has a half tail that never stops wagging. She reports that he is excellent with people and is quite remarkable. He’s adjusting quite well after being out of the shelter for just one day. 
Now we have NO offers for poor Tiger. Please continue to network him with proper criteria in place if he is to leave here.  Since he is now not leaving. I will schedule a vet visit for him in 10 days. I have to wait until his quarantine time is up. My vet prefers it and I do not blame him. Unless it is a medical emergency I always quarantine dogs before wellness exam, blood work, hw test and sterilization.

With that said is there anyone willing to assist with his medical? Since I now have a dog here that I will be vetting. He also has taken a kennel which I use as a holding area while I am walking dogs during the day. So now I am down one kennel. :(

My vet charges app. $75.00 for a neuter
HW test is $25.00 - $30.00
Blood work is app. $50.00 or so
Initial exam $45.00
If he is HW positive my vet charges $300 - $350.00 for treatment and kennels are $229.00 10x10.

I thought I would just get it out of the way as to what approximate
expense is.  
                                                   
This evening I spent approximately 45 minutes with Tyler.  He LOVES attention :) I brushed him for a bit which he really enjoyed, probably the first time he has ever been brushed by his initial reaction after I let him sniff the brush.  He enjoyed his brushing session so much that he closed his eyes. And it was nice to get that excess loose fur off of him.

He has a very cute and animated nature about him. He is not timid, actually a very friendly boy.  He has a scar on one of his front paws which probably was quite deep at some point. It does not impede his walking.  That half tail of his never stops wagging. He is excellent with people. Being blind and in a new place it is a pleasant surprise how sweet and friendly Tyler is. Someone is hopefully going to end up with a remarkable little boy. 

 Donations can be made to Believe in Buster Animal Rescue, a 501c3 group by visiting their website, or via Pay Pal (Their paypal address is st2005@embarqmail.com), or you can visit their Facebook page  to access their donation section. Your donation is tax deductible.

We're asking the community to spread the word about him in hopes that we can find the perfect family for him, or a Special Needs Rescue group that can help us find his family. Tyler has been on a chain for all of his life, yet he loves people and is very trusting. His whole story is just heartbreaking to me. I want to help him find a wonderful family! Please share his story!!!!

TEXAS: Emergency Help Needed for Texas Pitties and Potbelly Piggies and their caregiver

THE PROPERTY IS BEING SOLD, LEAVING THIS RESCUER AND HIS ANIMALS HOMELESS.
Another dedicated and selfless rescuer asking for nothing more than to protect the animals and continue to save more. Out of the blue, the property he has been leasing is being sold and he has less than two months to find a replacement so that the animals he has healed and nurtured will remain in a secure and safe environment until they go to their forever homes. Read on for the full story and contact information. Ideas, leads and if you can, donations can keep this "family" together and safe so Tyler can continue his mission of rescue those others ignore. FACEBOOK PAGE LINK
***If anyone has property or knows of anyone around San Antonio I am desperately trying to find a safe place for us to go. I have 53 days to find something!! Many of the animals in my care are special needs and/or having been horribly abused** I need a property with no zoning or regulations***
  IN HIS OWN WORDS: Almost 2 years ago I relocated to Texas from San Diego, CA. My company relocated so rather than taking a voluntary lay off and being unemployed I chose to relocate with the company and take a substantial pay cut. I have been gainfully employed with the company for 6 years and prior to accepting the position I was employed for several years with another company.

I moved here with my 5 dogs to a great home in Devine, TX where I have leased the property for nearly 2 years and was agreed verbally that it would not be sold for some time. I invested over $4,000
(all of my savngs ) in fencing and other necessities to make it a safe place for my animals and the animals that I have rescued since being in Texas. I was left some money when my mom passed away, I donated a large portion to other rescues and animals in need as well as using it for my own animals.
I was told last month by the landlord that she wants to sell the property and my lease expires on July 1st, 2013, not leaving much time to find something for my animals and myself. I have always paid my rent on time and have never been late. The sudden urgency to sell the house is beyond my control.

I am not eligible for a USDA loan or any grants. I make too much as the government sees it and my...

Fulton County, GA: Sweet and so scared little girl too long at the shelter



Chaos #A452718 at Fulton County Animal Shelter
First "Chaos" is a terrible name for this little girl.  She is absolutely terrified.  She will not walk on a leash.  I had to pick her up and carry her outside.  When I set her down, she was so terrified, she would not put her front two paws down and sat, shaking, on her haunches.  She was happy to accept love and attention though and cautiously leaned towards me to get more.
 
Here is my weekly plea.  Sweet scared Chaos is in need of an angel.  She has been at FCAS since March 29!!  That is a VERY long time for a FCAS dog.  I'm hoping luck is still on her side and this will find this sweetie a second chance...
 
She a really adorable pup.  Based on her appearance, I thought she was around 6 months old but her teeth indicate that she's more than likely around 2 years old.  So she's full grown at 30 lbs.  She very much has a baby face and super soft puppy-like fur.    I couldn't even begin to guess what she is- besides precious.
Chaos #A452718 at Fulton County Animal Shelter

She's seen her share of dogs come and go in the month plus that she's been at the shelter and hasn't had a problem with any of them.  She would definitely do best in a foster home, where she can learn to be a companion and overcome her fears.

Please let me know if you can help her.  She's running out of time. 
Thank you so much!

Charlotte. NC: Two bonded housebroken doxie girls looking for new home together

Michelle Williams has two female dachshunds that clearly love each other alot.  Just look at the photos.  She has to give them up because she is working two jobs and as painful as it is, she knows they will need more time than
she can give them right now.  She takes great care of them!


Spayed: YES

Housebroken: YES



Ages: Peanut is 8 years, very active and will bark when excited - she will usually calm down after a bit.Pumpkin is 4 years, a doll, very laid back and full of love and affection.  They are both lap dogs. Have not been around kids so probably not a good idea and they do not like cats. 

Peanut is a hunter and will go after rabbits and snakes.  Their Mom would prefer they go together and wants it understood that if someone takes them and cannot keep them, please let her know as she does not want them shuffled around

The dachshund rescue groups so far cannot promise they will be placed together.  If you know of a loving home for them both or if you can forward this with her contact information, I am trying to help her so that they can stay as family.

BENDY NEEDS YOUR HELP


Young Bendy w/leg braces
Bendy's Home for Handicapped Cats has cared for handicapped/special needs cats of many kinds over the past 13 years, starting withBendy Kitty who was born with bent front legs. 

R.I.P Bendy Cute Kitty 4/23/2012
Currently we have 9 FeLv positive cats in their own area, two "hind end twisties" who are incontinent and require special diets, diapers, monitoring for urinary tract infections and medications when they get one, several blind or mostly blind cats, 2 seniors with hyperthyroid and three seniors with CRF, another senior has triaditis (CRF, pancreatitis and IBD) and three other cats with IBD and differing sensitivities.

Life is always busy at Bendy's Home! www.alittletlc.com

Over the years our vet has let us run a tab and been very helpful in teaching Bendy Mom how to do things at home (running fluids for example) to keep the bills down. This year, however, bills have gotten out of hand. We had multiple emergencies and are having a lot of tooth issues which have put the current tab to $3000 (despite donations) and made the head of the clinic, understandably, unhappy.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HELP US WITH OUR VET BILL, YOU CAN DONATE THROUGH OUR FUNDIT WIDGET (to the upper left of this blog post), OR YOU CAN CONTACT THE VET BELOW:
