Mom is full blooded blood hound dad unknown. UTD on shots on
list for spay 9/6. Loves people and to run, does well with all other dogs.
RESCUE CLOSING DOWN - There are 30 dogs here that need to be spoken for or they will be put down!!
(more photos below)
Contact Linda at (615)812-1450 or Linda.Blessing@tn.gov and let her know which dog(s) you can help with.

*From Linda: SPCA of Tennessee has been working really hard to get the last of the dogs located in Westpoint, TN to safety. We have removed approximately 40 dogs over the last 2 months and Nashville Humane has been awesomely working with us to take in what they have room for. We have come down to the wire and the remaining dogs at this location are going to be put down due to financial hardship and more so lack of supervision for the dogs. I have been offered sponsorship on three of the dogs so far to a rescue if they will accept them into their program or assist in getting these dogs to safety. The sponsorship funds will be directed straight to the rescue that saves these dogs. A few have already been put down and another round is set for this weekend if no commitment from rescue is received or they are not moved out ASAP. She is not able to care for the remaining 30 dogs and barely keeps them fed. 

SPCA has reduced the number of dogs from 70 down to about 30 but we are simply unable to take in any more unless it's just for an overnight layover for transport. PLEASE help crosspost if you are unable to help any of these dogs. 

I have pictures and short bios on most of the dogs that may help catch some interest. Most dogs have been spay/neutered and all have had their basic vaccinations. 

Chocolate lab/bird dog mix born 12/12/12. Not spayed but utd on shots....
this dog is under snuggle in the dictionary. wants to please and weighs around 25 pounds.
3 year old speckled bird dog does well with other dogs and loves to be loved on.
fawn dobie...karma....spayed....smart and loves people....
1 year old lab pyr mix loves to play and does well with other dogs.
UTD on shots. Not a barker or digger.
Texas is the blk dog in pic and is utd on shots. Wandered up to our house at approx 5 weeks old. Does well with everything furry and starts out shy but warms up fast. People orientated. 45 lbs
Rosie is blk mouth cur mix approx 3 years old. Not spayed but utd on shots. She weighs in around 55 pounds and loves people but can get aggressive with some dogs. Loves to run and play in water.
Lab mix approx 35 pounds utd on shots. approx 1-2 years old LOVES to run and play with the other dogs, but will find you and get her attention. Does well with other dogs, sweet nature.
2 year old lab mix, great with other dogs and people.
Is as sweet as her name. Not spayed but utd on shots.
There are still more dogs there but this is what I have pictures of at this time. If you are interested in placing sponsorship money on any of the dogs to encourage a rescue or help a rescue with the expense for the dog(s) please let me know. Funds will go directly to the rescue. Contact me at 615/812-1450 and let me know which dog(s) you can help with. 
Alternate option is sending the dogs to FL rescue willing to take some of these dog but we need money for transport cost and health certificates/Rabies for each of these dogs. Contact me if you can help PLEASE! 

CROSSPOST! CROSSPOST! CROSSPOST! These dogs are going to die soon.

Cleveland, GA: 10 month old perfect boy dog named Lucky

This friendly and affectionate boy has been at the shelter, patiently waiting for a family to love and someone to play with.  Read about him from a wonderful volunteer who finds it harder and harder to send him back to his pen each time she visits him.
 
"Lucky is about 10 months old and very healthy and active.  Incredibly affectionate and very tuned into you the minute you start speaking to him.  Has all his shots and vaccines, too. 

He needs a family with kids (he's very playful) or with very active adults who love to hike, run or whatever. He's not trained so would be great for someone who wants to become his master and have them become the center of his world.  I'm not sure about his breed, but is a very smart one, for sure.  

He'd go crazy being fenced in day and night or tethered and needs to be part of a family setting.  He's so lovable, it's difficult to send him back into the shelter, but everyone there just adores him. Anyone who would adopt him would be very LUCKY!!

Thanks for sending this to your groups and if anyone wants to know more, they can  call Jane at 706-878-3663 or Kathy at Smithgall Woods Animal Shelter at 706-865-4135.

LILLY LOST her HOME after Storm IRENE…Wonderful Seniors have been feeding her…they can no longer care for her due to the RULES of the CENTER!!! LILLY needs a HOME or FOSTER QUICKLY as in *NOW*… PLEASE Contact Kathy:
LILLY:
Lilly is a stunningly beautiful petite tortoiseshell cat that is about 2 years old and weighs 7 pounds. She is without a doubt the most affectionate cat we have ever rescued. She loves people and purrs non-stop when she is held. She is great with other cats and, when she is not busy charming everyone in the room with her playful antics, kneads herself to sleep.
Lilly was an owned cat until Hurricane Irene when she got lost and found herself begging for food at a senior center in Nassau County. The wonderful seniors were very fond of Lilly and made sure that she got fed every day, but asked us to take her because each time they opened their front door Lilly would try to run into the apartment and, while they would all love to keep her, pets are not allowed at the center.
This cat was obviously treated well her whole life and just needs a loving family that will give her a FOREVER home. Please give her a chance you definitely won’t regret it!
MEDICAL:
Lilly was just given a clean bill of health by a veterinarian. She is spayed, has had all of her shots, been dewormed, tested negative for FELV and positive for FIV.

Landlord wants him OUT OUT OUT
August 19*   Northeast Philadelphia
Contact: Tiffany Clark at shemeher32@yahoo.com or 267-206-2426
***Pretty Boy is a wonderfully friendly male cat that a horrible person threw out onto the streets. A neighbor, unable to take him in, nevertheless began to feed him. Tiffany came upon Pretty Boy and was impressed with hisexcellent behavior and mild manner. She couldn't bear to see him homeless and, while her own cat won't accept a roommate, found him a home with her sister and her 2 young children back in December. All was good until the landlord learned about Pretty Boy and wants him OUT OUT OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pretty Boy desperately needs a foster or forever home or he will be back on the streets. Help!

He does need to be neutered, but is up to date on all shots, tested negative for FIV/FeLV, flea-free and has excellent litter box habits. The vet estimates that he's about 6 years old. He has a sweet, laid back personality and loves everyone. Tiffany is in tears because Pretty Boy is just too good to be without a home. His loving nature and debonair good looks would make him a wonderful addition to your home! She is even willing to make a donation to any rescue that would accept him. Preferably a HOME though!! Transport can be arranged!

Chatsworth GA: The Rest are Dead - share, crosspost, help

*The following is a desperate plea from Rebecca's blog "Kitty Kat Voices"
MONDAY, AUGUST 12, 2013
The rest are dead...
Sadly, these kitties will either be euthanized  or get sick soon.  This is the only photo of cats or kittens posted on Murray County GA sheriff's FACEBOOK page, out of 40 in 12 cages last week.  
The rest are dead...


I HAVE DONE ALL I CAN DO, AND MY HEART IS BREAKING FOR ALL OF THOSE INNOCENT LIVES.  THIS FORMERLY RESCUE FRIENDLY FACILITY HAS TURNED INTO A NIGHTMARE FOR ALL THE KITTIES THAT ENTER THERE.

I WISH TO THANK ALL THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE SUPPORTED MY EFFORTS AT MURRAY COUNTY ON BEHALF OF THE KITTIES.  WE HAVE MANAGED TO SAVE MANY, WHO WOULD OTHERWISE WOULD HAVE MET THE FATE OF THESE.

THE STRINGENT RULES THAT HAVE BEEN PLACED ON THOSE WHO WOULD RESCUE HAVE MADE IT TOO COSTLY, BOTH FINANCIALLY AND EMOTIONALLY. I PERSONALLY AM IN DEBT AS FAR AS I CAN GO.   CHANGES NEED TO BE MADE.  THE POLITICIANS ARE WINNING.  

NO ONE KNOWS HOW DIFFICULT THE LAST MONTHS HAVE BEEN, AND STILL THE KILL RATE GOES UP.  I WISH I COULD UNDERSTAND WHY ANYONE THINKS THIS IS...

Greenville, SC: Tiny miracle kittens, Samson and Delilah ready for a new life.

In her own words, read the story of a rescuer's final save and help her find a perfect home for these miracle kittens.  I dare you not to be touched to the core by Samson and Delilah
The call came in to Concerned Citizens For Animals of a mother who   had not been seen and babies with their eyes still closed. Nothing   more other than an approximate location was given.  The emailer gave   no information of themselves and when we tried to contact them we got
  a return mail response.

  I rushed over to the church with the empty parking lot looking for a   trash dumpster where the emailer said they would be found.  A teeny   orange kitty barely able to cry anymore  probably because he had been   crying for a day now was on the sidewalk.  He was covered in blood   and dried on sticky afterbirth.  Mama had just given  birth maybe a   day ago. Looking through the bushes I found another a tortie very   stiff unable to move covered in blood, I thought she was dead, but   their was still life in her.  Further inspection lead me to two more.

Wantagh, NY: The little dog who COULD...

...be a companion, pal, beloved family member.  All he wants is to be loved.
August 5:
"Dillon is still here. Sad mystery that is- he is so well behaved, so good looking and just an all around good boy.
Obviously came from a home, and he needs to be in one again SOON. He is in one of our offices as he just gets too depressed in the kennel and wants to lay nearby a person all day.
Please keep working this great dog like mad! Thanks, Wendy"

July 14: Just got word that DILLON has had NO offers. NONE!! and the shelter is FILLED to the BRIM… Please help this boy find a loving home.
Dillon #1297: 7yr old, Male/Neutered Pointer Mix **House-broken, Crate-trained, knows sit, paw, GREAT COMPANION DOG** Are you Lonesome tonight? well Dillon is! He is lonesome for a home to call his own! Picked up as a stray, only wearing a collar that said "Dillon", someone somewhere gave up on this precious boy! Friendly fella that would be an excellent companion dog for an older couple, maybe someone living on their own looking for a slow walking partner. Or a home with respectful older children (8yrs old). He's best as the only dog in the home, doesn't like to be around other animals.
He just needs someone to take an interest in him and let him know he's loved. Dillon is learning to take treats gently (sometimes he takes them a little hard); his personality and handsome good looks make him irresistible; but NO ONE HAS EVEN PUT AN APPLICATION IN FOR HIM! AND NO RESCUES ARE ABLE TO TAKE HIM! This handsome, good natured boy deserves to be living in a home, NOT A SHELTER.

JULY 4th Update 4:10 ( Obviously NOT the Best time for an URGENT REPEAT PLEA…BUT in the same of this kitty…we will TRY AGAIN!!! The Shelter is REALLY trying for this sweet kitty…One More Try!SHELTER "UPDATE: July 4, 2013 Callie was checked on at 11 this morning. Her BG is down to the 200's (still too high for a cat in a ketoacidotic crisis) and she ate a little bit of food. She looks a little brighter but is still by no means out of the woods. There's a skeleton crew on due to the holiday, so that's about all we know. My contact has a direct line to one of the shelter directors, so if someone steps up, she can go and get the kitty out of there. This girl needs someone experienced who isn't afraid to do TR and keep this kitty under 100." All med costs covered!!
MUST BE FOSTERED IMMEDIATELY to save Her Life!!! Shelter cannot handle her needs to save her…NOT!!!!July 3 - 4:00 PM - Shelter CANNOT Hold!
