*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

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!!!
