*Memphis, TN: Adorable Teddy Bear Mix Hidden from Public

11-4-13:  This dog was adopted by a lovely lady named Kay Hurst who absolutely adores him. She had a similar looking dog named Sage who died a few years ago. He is in a great home.   Jan Courtney
This teddy bear is at a high kill facility called Memphis Animal Services.  His ID is A260191 and he is in the stray area of the facility, which is an area where the public is not allowed, which lowers his chances of being adopted. 

He is a male and he’s listed as a “Chow” although he looks more like a terrier of some kind and he’s also listed as being almost five years old, although he looks a lot younger.  He’s heartworm negative.  The staff says he’s very friendly and sweet natured.  
He’s been at Memphis Animal Services since Oct 15, 2013 and needs to be rescued as soon as possible.  Please consider giving this sweet boy a home.  

If you are interested in him, please call Tracy Dunlap
at Memphis Animal Services at 901-636-1416 as soon as possible.  ID# A260191

Lake City, FL: Emily...Her body is crippled, but her spirit soars

Emily has been Rescued by The Little Guild of Saint Francis

This precious blonde bundle of love is Emily.  She has a physical challenge, but shhh...don't tell her that.  As far as she is concerned, all that she is missing is a family to love. She's running out of time at the shelter Let's help find her family

The rescue coordinator for the Lake City Humane Society, in Lake City, Fla., is pleading for help for an exceptionally sweet dog who was picked up as a stray back on Oct. 16.

The dog, dubbed "Emily," is crippled; initially, the facility employees believed that Emily had been struck by a car, but after an exam by a veterinary technician, it appears that Emily may have been born with the disability.
Debra Ludwig, the rescue coordinator for the shelter, stated:
"Her rear legs are bowed in at the knees and she can not walk properly although it does not slow her down much. She does not appear to be in pain and is very loving.
We are a small county shelter and do not have to means for a complete vet workup and proper care for this girl.
She is in need of a rescue who can take her in and provide her proper care and evaluate her legs to see what is needed for her."
The hold time is up for this sweet dog and now she desperately
 needs a rescue organization to take her in.

Per the shelter staff, Emily is sweet and quiet and gets along well with other dogs. (Just look at her picture - that says it all.)  Anyone who can help is asked to email: and reference ID# A21279713.

Brookfield, CT Another Elderly Woman's Animals Facing a Kill Shelter...

Left alone in the house since the beginning of summer, a sweet dog named Valentine and her 4 kitty siblings may be sent to a kill shelter because human Mom was sent to a nursing home... read their story below

Oct 30, 2013 Brookfield, CT

*From T: I received an email from Reesa two days ago regarding 4 cats and a dog about to be taken to ACC In Connecticut…Yet Another story of an elderly person having to leave her beloved pets behind while her “devoted” grandson wanted NOTHING to do with them other than dump them into a KILL Shelter…We talked and decided it was WELL worth a TRY to find HOMES for them before resorting to the grandson’s choice. (All the while knowing that we might have to do just that if HOMES were not found).

Reesa took the 4 cats (photos below) and the dog from the HOME today and brought them to her vet for check-ups and combo testing. $750 that Reesa had no intentions of spending during these hard economic times was been spent today to save these precious, innocent animals…We PRAY they won’t have to be taken to the ACC where they will surely be killed. Two blackies a Tabby and a Tiger….the usual…

Our Search Begins here…
A Little Background:  This dog, VALENTINE, and the 4 cats were left ALONE in a cold, abandoned house without electricity since the beginning of the summer. It is getting to be very cold and even colder inside the house. The grandmother was put is in a nursing home one year ago. The grandson who does not live far away feels he was "guilted" into caring for them and goes to the house occasionally to care for them. He does not like animals. There is garbage all over the house. It is a total mess with everything all over the place and cat/dog food and waste. Another disappointing story of the elderly having NO ONE to count on…A growing epidemic.

VALENTINE is a female beagle/ black lab mix about 5 years young. She was abused as a puppy. She is a very affectionate loving dog starved for attention. She gets along well with people and cats and other dogs. She has been fed a cat food diet because she is left in the house not monitored with the cat's food out. She’s a little chunky…

About the 4 cats: They are all under five yrs old. They are all neutered or spayed. They are friendly. They were all combo tested and are negative!3

NICK: male, is gray/white and very friendly.
BLACKIE: is male and a big, VERY friendly boy.
BAMBI: female, is black, a pure sweetheart, and is Blackie's offspring.
JONIE: female, is a gray and black tabby, also very gentle.

VETTING UPDATE: Oct 29, 2013
Excellent news, all of the cats are FIV and FeLV negative. Vet said they are in general good health. He treated them for fleas. One has tapeworm. The dog was also treated for fleas and she is being given antibiotics for Lyme and anaplasmosis. Vet stated that she should be fine.

“It's amazing that all of the animals are Super Sweet with great dispositions considering what they have been through. They are stressed but are relatively calm and are very good with people and were great at the vet too.”
NOW to Find HOMES for 4 Kitties and a Doggie…They Do NOT have to be ADOPTED Together…HOMES for ALL is Our DREAM…

Ozark, Alabama - Dog thrown into trunk on way to pound!! - Rescuer can't keep!! - Needs help NOW!!

SAFE! Rescued and possible adoption in the works! 
This is an urgent plea for help... the picture says it all. Share, crosspost, whatever you can do to help find this little dog a loving home after suffering at the hands of her previous family.

*From M:  Contact me at: (at if you can help, and PLEASE SHARE!!!!!!!

Today when I was out trying to catch the mom and puppy I have been trying for, for over a month, a white dumpy car approached me and asked if I wanted a 'yard dog'. I told them I could help try to find a home for the dog if they would text me a photo. He said no, they were on the way to the pound now cause 'we ain't got time for her no more'. I saw no dog in the car and said that..... he proceeded to jump out and pop the CAR TRUNK. This poor skinny baby girl was huddled in the corner with her too tight collar tied up with a metal cable and a padlock around her little neck, crawling with fleas, sores on her ears, but still so hopeful for a little love that she crawled into my arms wagging her little tail. I got her a bowl of food and she ate two bowls ravenously before coming up for air (they said they feed her as much as she wants but 'she never gains weight'.

I am bathing her poor dust logged body tonight (they said she digs holes to lie in cause they can't afford her a dog house), & am taking her to vet for shots an worming and check in the morning....... but she needs a rescue or foster immediately.

My husbands mother had a massive stroke in England, and we will be going over there sometime next week probably, and need her a place urgently. Can any good rescue or foster help?????? She is so precious and very petite/small.

She may have some food aggression because when the little boy who owns her went to take her bowl from her she growled a little, but is fine with kids when no food is threatened to be taken from her.

Please, please help!!!

TN Owner was stabbed to death & pup beaten w/pipe RESCUE NEEDED

This precious dog was beaten with a pipe as her human Mom was stabbed to death. Please help Golden Girl find a new home. 

*From Parker: The one blue eye looks like could be some Husky there....or herding breed??? very beautiful girl what ever she is...6-8 months will be spayed. Folks this is from a very dear lady that I know. Ms. Martha is the one whom rescued Maggie Mae. Folks please read below and share this dear dog's story in hopes of getting a rescue or forever home. This is an awful tragedy for any dog to go through.
Please contact: Martha Ross
Thanks Parker

"Hi Fellow Dog Lovers!

I have a very special girl and seeking help finding a home. If you are local, you are familiar with the young lady that was recently stabbed to death while at work at Wendy's in Magee. Her boyfriend, her child's father, killed her.

This sweet, very timid dog belonged to the deceased. The boyfriend also abused this dog. She has a dent in her head. It broke my heart when I saw her, she has the same dent as Maggie Mae (Mary picked Maggie Mae up for me, her owner beat her with a steal pipe in the head and went to jail).

I call this little lady Golden Girl. I know very little about her. I believe she is about 6-8 months old. She is very sweet and scared. I am attaching photos and will get her spayed ASAP, and a complete examination.

Thank You!
Martha Ross

Long Island, NY *Candy 7 Year Old Calico *Lost her Elderly Mom to Assisted Living

Candy, 7 Year Old Calico who Lost her Elderly Mom to Assisted Living now needs your help.
UPDATE: You may remember this story - 3 kitties losing their home when mom is moved into a nursing facility. 2 kitties have been adopted, but Candy became sick.
*From Trudy: **Candy's Story gets sadder...she had a wonderful adopter ready to bring her HOME...then Candy stopped eating for 4 days and was rushed to Vet Hospital as Emergency by her foster Mom, Patty Burkhart...
10 days later Candy is still there and now has a definite diagnosis of ***Kidney Disease (See Info below)... She is doing very well now... EATING & playing and a VERY nice kitty.
***Candy will need sub q fluids DAILY for the rest of her life....she will need to be on a Special Diet for Kidney Disease...THIS is going to make finding a Special HOME for Candy a MUST!!! Candy has NO WHERE to Go…we couldn’t post for her HOME until we knew what her diagnosis was…
I know that some of you or people you know have had experience with sub q fluids...
Even I did it for 3 years and it gave our cat an incredible quality of life that she would never have had. I had never put a needle into anything...the needle does NOT go below the skin so it is NOT difficult or painful what so ever!!! I developed a routine and our kitty went right along with it...The vet states that Candy takes the fluids quite easily...that is a blessing!
Candy's 2 house mates have been adopted into WONDERFUL HOMES...Skippy and DAISY.
I don't know what we will do if we can't find a HOME for Candy...I just don't know...I'm trusting that somehow we will...Please Help this Beautiful Girl get HOME!!! (Transport Arranged to Approved HOME)

Patty is PRO...if you've never given fluids, it is NOT HARD but it is a commitment... A Commitment to Candy...

NOTE: In doing research about this condition I found a fantastic website, with a page specifically on how to obtain supplies inexpensively.

Chester, PA ** Two Beautiful ABANDONED Cats Begging to Come IN, please help find these cats a home.

The neighborhood delinquents are threatening the cats. Read their story below…

Oct 9, 2013 CHESTER, PA
From a Kind Hearted Woman, CONNIE:
Connie is hoping to find a home for these two abandoned cats...ironically they were from separate HOMES but they have BONDED together in their search for Food, LOVE & Shelter...They ...are EXTREMELY FRIENDLY and Begging to Come In...
Call Connie OR LISA:
610.990.2208 or 610.872.8325

“Hi, I live in Chester, Pa (between Philly and Delaware) and I am desperately looking for a rescue who has room for two adult cats who we're thrown onto the street at different times but have teamed up together and formed a tight bond.
The first one is a tortoiseshell female, she was put out onto the streets when her owners son had to be hospitalized "supposedly" the doctors said it was because he was allergic to the cat. I have since gotten her spayed when i did a TNR
program with forgotten cats, she also was given her rabies shot. She is a very girly girl cat (if that makes any sense)she loves to be petted and she loves to play but doesn't like to be picked up. She won't scratch though, if you happen to pick her up, she just will jump off of you the minute you let go.
The second one is a beautiful orange and white male. He was put out of his home (I'm thinking) a day or two after we ended TNR. His owners have since moved away but he continues to meow and scratch at their door to be let in. I also believe he was abused! When he first appeared he was skin and bones and very afraid of every movement and sound. I have since worked with him and he is now trusting of people again and will do the funniest things to get your attention so you will pet him. But he also breaks my heart at night when the other cats come to eat, one cat in particular , a BIG tom cat is always beating or trying to beat him up, or chase him off so as soon as he sees him coming he runs up to our porch door stands on his hind legs and looks in at us with a look on his face that we can't resist so we let him into our screened in porch until the other cat leaves. He is also fond of other animals, he loves to hang out on the ledge of our porch while our four cats lounge next to him on the other side of the screen. He is also great around our small dog.
I just feel really bad with winter coming.. Although they both always have access to food and water I worry about them staying warm because where they have been sleeping is under our snowball bush and i know they have to get cold since their little bodies aren't used to the cold weather and they are both small with not a lot of meat on them. Another thing that worries me is the fact that every time we go to walk somewhere both cats are behind us, following us, and it is nearly impossible to get them to stay here until we get back so we wind up standing in the middle of streets while they both take their time to cross every street. It's cute!! But around here it's very unsafe!!
And another thing we worry about is the kids around here, and also the neighbors because the one neighbor has sprayed them with raid on more than a few occasions because they were on her porch and another chases them with a broom. and because the cats don't leave the front of our house the kids are always messing with them trying to scare them either by stomping their feet at them or by throwing rocks at them and the list continues.. we have also found cats dead in the past because of these kids.. We (my family) have gotten into many arguments with parents because of their kids trying to harm these cat, so please if you have room or even if you don't but may know someone that does please let me know!?! Thanks
You can either email me back or you can call 610.990.2208 or 610.872.8325 and ask for either Lisa or Connie.. Thank you!

Maryland: Sweet Lucy needs your help to beat this!

Please help this little girl beat pneumonia and have the happy life she deserves.
*From K: Sweet Lucy is a Chihuahua who is approximately 2 years old. I rescued from a kill shelter in South Carolina a week and a half ago. She is a sweet, quiet little girl who was emaciated and scared to death in that shelter. I found her a wonderful foster home in Maryland and new she would have a wonderful chance in life with her so I had her transported there last Wednesday the 2nd of October. The following Saturday, October 5th, Lucy fell gravely ill and was rushed to the Atlantic Veterinary Internal Medical and Emergency Center in Annapolis Maryland by her foster mom. Poor Lucy now has Pneumonia and will die without continuing treatment. She is now going into her second day there and unsure when she will be well enough to be released. Her foster mom is trying to do the right thing and get her the treatment she needs but does not have the money to pay for all of this. PLEASE help Lucy get better and contribute towards her hospital bill so Lucy can finally have a chance at finding her forever home. Life for sweet Lucy has not been fair and we need your help to ensure she finally gets the forever home she deserves! Any contribution will help, nothing is too small. This little girl deserves better. Please share with your friends and help Lucy get better! If you look at that face, you'll fall in Love with her too. PLEASE SHARE. - See more at:

So far she has paid $800 and I think it'll be more like $2 to $3 thousand before she is out of there. Please circulate. If someone wants to contribute directly to the hospital, information is in the Go Fund Me message.
