Desperate situation - Adian needs a few months in a foster home, please!
Dear Whom This May Concern,
This is a extreme long shot but i am in need of some assistance or if you could connect me with someone that can help... On January 10th, 2013, my dog Adian and i were going out like we do every night. My neighbor just happened to be taking his dog off leash and i had said to him that there is a Raleigh leash law, and we all have to abide by it because we live 5 mins. from downtown Raleigh, we are the heart of Raleigh. He began to get "Ugly" (raising his hands and shouting etc) when he raised his hand it looked as if he was going to strike myself or my dog. My dog reacted and went towards him, my neighbor claims "he bit him" but when i looked at his hand there was no mark... i went up to my apartment crated Adian and got my roommate to approach my neighbor to speak on this event. There was again no mark, twenty to thirty minutes later he apparently called Animal Control (understandable, in a way). When Animal Control got there, the officer claimed there is a mark, and that because my rabies paperwork for Adian is no where to be found (due to my ex being the one that was caring for Adian originally). So i was told by the Animal Control Officer that i could get Adian in ten days,etc. I waited out the days, and spoke with Karen Rogers, and she allowed to me pick him up on the 19th due to my boyfriend (TDY'ing - military training- The only reason my bf cant take him is he is getting basically deployed on state side terms) on the 20th. We took Adian to Asheville to stay with my cousin... I was under the impression that Adian would be staying in doors, and taken out, etc. normal dog care in my opinion. But i was wrong, he has him staying outside, and is attached to like a clothes line with a wire coming down that allows him to run back and forth. Not what i was expecting. My cousin said this is the best option for a lab mix, and thats what big dogs need and all this other nonsense.( Now, my cousin told me i have a week to find him a new place of residence...01/25/13)
Needless to say i am not happy.. So now i am back to square one. My rental company will not allow Adian back on property (nor will they refund me the 250 i paid for him to reside here), and will not allow me to end my lease early. I have till April left on my lease, and am i looking to see if anyone can help by fostering him- preferrably a home where he would be the only animal. he has grown up with a chihuahua that i currently have but that seems to be the only dog that he feels comfortable with in our home. If anyone was able to help i would provide, His XXL crate,food,treats,toys,bedding etc. for him and i am also willing to pay a little something for his keep, i cant pay to much but i am willing to try to do what i can. I know it is a long shot because in the rescue world finding a single dog available foster is scarse but i am asking for any help. Please, i can provide refrences regarding his temperment, and anything else that is needed, and if anyone can help it would be as temporary as possible..
Please, if you know of anyone who can help it would be greatly appreciated..
Thank you,

Ashland City,TN: Roscoe is out in the cold, just another $175 to save him

Halfway there to be able to bring Roscoe to a warm home.
"Hi Friends,
We are almost halfway to Roscoe’s goal with $150 of the required $325 to get him to a warm home…. We need $175 more by 2/2 to get his vetting and transport paid for his ride on 2/9. We’ve had some questions about the cost of the vetting; the breakdown of his vetting is: $20 for HW test, $30 for the health certificate and $60 for the vet visit as he is in a rural area. Total/$110. If he were in a local area we could indeed get this at a lower price, but that is not an option due to timing and the
