GREENBRIAR, TN BLIND JRT NEEDS RESCUE PLEASE!

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on September 27, 2007
CONTACT INFO FOR THIS SHELTER IS 
 Greenbrier Animal Control at 615-643-1003

Officer Weaver is a one man show in Greenbrier, he runs the shelter, sets traps, adopts out, etc. so he works hard to help these babies; but can’t save them all.  This little guy, if not adopted by the middle of next week will be put down.  If you are interested, Officer Weaver is usually at the shelter from 8-9am and then again at 4:00pm.  His number is 643-1003 and he cannot dial long distance, so if you call and you are out of town; you will have to keep calling until you get him. 
Send this to everyone you know, this guy deserves a home with love.

Here is a heartbreaker… this cuddly love boy is totally blind and has some hair loss. Not sure if it’s mange or just because he’s so darn skinny. He looks a lot older than he is. I’m guessing his age to be around 7 or 8. He’s a good natured boy who was covered in fleas but thanks to Jonelle, he’s now had a bath and is frontlined. Someone has obviously dumped this poor fella as he was picked up as a stray and no one has come to claim him. He weighs about 20lbs, is not neutered and is a quiet sweet little guy.?If you can help him, please call Greenbrier Animal Control at 615-643-1003. His time is limited…
Please Crosspost!!!!

 

Thanks

DESP NEEDS FUNDS FOR SURGERY!! — NYC YOUNG COCKER GOES BLIND OVERNIGHT

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on September 27, 2007
Reply to: comm-426417430@craigslist.org   (at  craigslist.org)

Please don’t flag this, have a heart…….

Recently I posted the information below on Craigslist. Some people were kind and wished us good luck, some suggested organizations that help out, I contacted every single one but they were all out of funds. Some others suggested I look into Credit Care which I did but I’d have to pay an additional $2,000-$2,500 in interest above the initial $7,000 for the surgery and I can’t do that, I’m not working and I’m dealing with some medical issues of my own but the rest were EXTREMELY CRUEL telling me that I shouldn’t have a dog if I can’t afford it.

I saved my little guy when he was 5 ½ months old. I didn’t know that when I saved the little guy he had a UTI and Ear Infection but that didn’t matter off he went to the vet immediately.

Between then and now he had another UTI (I think the original one didn’t completely go away) numerous ear infections (cocker’s are apparently prone) and he suffers from allergies and has had all kinds of tests thru an allergy specialist.

His food has been changed 8/9 times including prescription foods and me cooking for him and he’s been on at least a dozen different meds, I also had him fixed.

All this in less than 2 years totaling over $2,500. I scrambled to get the money, even went and got him pet insurance of which I got back only $68 towards the bills.

Now before he turned 2 ½ he lost his sight and I was told the surgery and meds would be another $7,000+, that’s approximately $10,000 in less than 2 years which is a enormous amount even to those who have money, and oh yes his insurance people tell me they’re not covering it, so what good are they.

Could anyone afford this easily, does anyone expect that when they save a dog or cat they’re going to have to lay out $10,000 in less than 2 years?

So why when I had to swallow my pride and ask for help which believe me isn’t easy, why would people have to be so CRUEL and write me nasty emails?

If you can’t help than just ignore my plea but don’t add to my pain with nasty messages, or telling me I shouldn’t have my little guy, or to dump him.

He’s my little boy, I love him like crazy, he has a long life ahead of him and he deserves to enjoy life and see the world around him even if there are some very mean people in it.

I’m sorry for venting but it’s beyond me how some people could be so cruel when they know someone is in so much pain.

If anyone out there can help please read the information below no money comes to me directly it goes into his account at

NYC VETERINARY SPECIALISTS CENTER,
410 W.55 St., New York, NY 10019 Attn: Dave Gersholowitz for PUPPALICIOUS WEIR #5848.
Thank you all for your patience. 
 

 
Hi my name is “PUPPALICIOUS” I’m almost 2 1/2 years old.

For all of you who know me you know that aside from walking down the street talking to everyone, my favorite things to do are running with my friends, chasing after balls faster than my mommy can throw them and finding balls behind fences, in the mud, behind car wheels, in the snow, just anywhere and insisting mommy lets me bring them home.

I can’t do that anymore, I lost my sight literally overnight in a 24-36 hour span, I went blind.

I can’t run with my friends and I miss them so much I can barely walk down the street without scaring myself and banging into a tree or pole. I’m trying to keep my spirits up but mommy is really sad for me.

The doctors say they can perform surgery on both my eyes and there’s a very good chance I’ll get 90%+ back but there’s a catch it’s going to cost $7,000 plus follow-ups and mommy doesn’t have that money with taking care of me and my two sisters and my brother.

People always tell mom that I’m a handsome little guy and I thought that maybe there might be some kind people out there who could help a little and take some pressure off of mom.

If you can there’s a little fund for me at NYC Veterinary Specialists & Cancer Treatment Center, 410 West 55th St., New York, New York 10019.

Checks can be made out to NYC VETERINARY SPECIALISTS CENTER, mark the check for PUPPALICIOUS WEIR #5848. Put Attention to: Dave Gersholowitz on the envelope. Every penny counts so let me just say,

“I THANK YOU, MY SIBLINGS THANK YOU, MY MOMMY THANKS YOU”.
May God Bless you and your little ones.

IA: Marshalltown. Redbone Hound abandoned, injured, young.

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on September 27, 2007

Maybe someone can help this young injured abandoned Redbone Hound who needs a home and LOVE. The contact is Karlene.

Subject: red bone hound

A friend of mine’s parents own a dog boarding place in Marshalltown. They have been left with a red bone hound, 1 year old male. They would like to keep him but don’t have the money nor the space. The owner claims he is going to Iraq as a mercenary (not missionary). He got the dog at the shelter and after having him a couple of weeks, the dog got hit by a car. Someone taped the leg and so the bones never fused together, so the dog has a leg that just hangs. The man called and said for them to just take him to the shelter, that he didn’t want him back. People love to pass off responsibility. Anyway, if a rescue takes the dog, it will no doubt be a large vet bill to “fix” the leg, if possible, or even amputate. I told her I would send out emails but not to be too hopeful.

More About #328
This sweet liver colored Dal, came in as a stray from Liberal. In the pictures she looks black and white but when you see her in person you can defiantly tell that she is the brown and white. We think that she may be deaf or at least hard of hearing as she won’t respond to any one when they talk to her or even snap their fingers by her ears, she will only respond if she sees you. She is very friendly and just loves having people around. Her adoption fee is $10.

Phoenix, AZ — Deaf ACD mix w/3 good legs,thrown from car – needs placement

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on September 22, 2007
We have several dogs that have been in rescue for a year (or close to).

They each have their own story and unique needs. They are safe with New Hope Cattle Dogs in AZ, but really, really need their forever home. Zip is most in need:

 

Here is Zip’s story. Zip came to us in Nov. of 06 after he was turned into a local emergency hospital. He has a lame foot that limits his movement from a previous injury that was not ever treated. Apparently, he had been thrown from a moving car when he was 3-4 months old and his rescuers never did anything to fix his foot, but instead turned around and turned him in 3 months later. We have had him checked out at several vets and it has been determined that he should have a $2200 surgery to attempt to fix his foot. Basically the vet thinks that the lameness appears to be coming from soft tissue damage where the ligaments/tendons were torn at the metacarpus joint and has frozen that joint into permanent hyperextension.It is unclear whether or not it can be fixed or not and with therapy following treatment will result in a vet bill of $3000. He seems to tire out on the leg if he is very active, but otherwise does just fine on it.

 

When he got to us, we found out he was also deaf. He is a VERY ACTIVE boy that desperately needs a J-O-B! He knows several hand signals and is very good in the house and in his crate. He is dog door trained, good w/ dogs, although does like to fancy himself as alpha dog. He LOVES to play with other dogs, but at his foster home now, the other dogs don’t play with him much. His owner has a debilitating illness that causes her to need to sleep a lot. She is unable to provide him the exercise and stimulation that he needs and as a result he is acting up in the household. She is one of my long term fosters and has always been great with deaf dogs and dominant dogs, but is having a harder time lately. She really needs an easier dog, but is not willing to give up on Zip which I admire greatly. 

 

He really needs more right now and is becoming sexually mature and testing the boundaries more and more. If he was able to get out and run and play, this would be hardly an issue. Is there anyone out there that can help us by providing a forever home or a long term foster home for Zip?

He really is a FABULOUS dog with typical ACD behaviors that can be fixed. If we can find a long term foster home, we will do the necessary fundraising to try and fix his foot and give him a second chance. At this point, we will consider foster homes in or out of AZ and will reduce his adoption fee by 50-75% for the right home.

If you would like to make a donation to Zip’s cause, please go here: http://www.firstgiving.com/nhcd_zip

If you would like to foster Zip, please fill out a foster application at http://www.newhopecattledogs.com/fosterform.htm

If you would like to adopt Zip, please fill out an application at http://www.newhopecattledogs.com/adoption_form.htm

Blind kittens, MO. Need Homes

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on September 18, 2007
CONTACT LAURA,  laura.l.coe@gmail.com

I am in a situation and could use some advice. I found 3 feral male kittens that were appx 4 weeks old. The mother, who appeared healthy and was being fed by tenants of an apartment building, was nursing them, but the kittys were very very sick. I watched them for a week and then realized that if I didn’t intervene, they would surely die. They had eye infections and couldn’t see. They were walking around in a very dangerous place. I took them to a vet to get them some medicine. The vet told me he couldn’t be sure if they would regain their vision or not. He wormed them, gave me eye meds, and oral meds and kmr and science diet canned food. I was vacationing at the time, but I followed the treatment plan exactly as the vet ordered. They responded well to the treatment, so I took them home and continued to care for them. Last week I took them to my vet. Sadly, two of the kittys will probably never see again. The third one recovered completely. These are beautiful, playful, healthy kittens. My vet tested for feline leukemia and the results were negative. I will keep the one that can see, but I can not keep the blind kittys. I have 4 children, 2 large cat hating dogs, and one small cat loving housedog. I would constantly be fearful that the kittys would get out a door left ajar, or the dogs would get in and injur them, or they would injur themselves on the things that get strewn about my house from the kid. If I take the kittys to the shelter, they will be put down. Do you know any resources that might help me find foster homes or adoptive homes for the blind ones? I really, really wish I could keep them, but my home just isn’t suitable for a pet that can not see. They would make great pets and after all they’ve been through, I will make every effort to find them homes before resorting to the dog pound.I can’t keep them forever and the sooner I get them in a stable home, the better. Their birthdate, according to the vet, is around July 5th. Any advice you could offer would be greatly appreciated. I live in Missouri. I would be will to drive them to a new home or arrange for them to get there, if one were to be found.  Oh-the one kitty does have a potential medical issue. One of his eyes was ruptured before I was able to rescue him. The vet said the eye may need to be removed but is ok for the time being.

Marietta, GA – 10 year old boxer girl needs a cart for mobility – PLEASE HELP !!

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on September 17, 2007

Reply to: comm-422399931@craigslist.org  at craigslist.org

I have a 10 year old boxer that has all her life acted like a puppy until
recently. She has been diagnosed with lower back disc disease. It just
breaks my heart watching her drag her body across the floor, and It kills
more when she tries to hold herself up trying to go to the bathroom. I need
to know if anyone knows of a company out there that makes the carts at a
cheaper cost for those people that just don’t have 3 or 4 hundred dollars
just lying around. I would do anything for my dog, she has so much life left
in her and she just seems so miserable. Can anyone help me?!!!

EMERGENCY – Greeneville, TN – DEAF, WHITE CAT IS STARVING, Needs someone to come feed him/her !!!

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on September 17, 2007

lhasaluvr@secludedhearts.org at secludedhearts.org

Please Crosspost to Cat Rescue Groups – I don’t belong to any

About a year ago, a lady who lives next door to my ex husband was ordered to move out of her house. She is a cat hoarder and had more than a hundred cats at her home. The shelter came in and trapped the cats, euthanized them. One was left behind.

This is a deaf, white cat – I am not even sure if it is a male or female. But it’s a nice cat and will come when you coax it. My ex husband lives next door to where the hoarder lived, and has fed the cat ever since it was left behind. His father is in the hospital here in MD and is dying. It’s a very sad sitaution. Ex was just going to stay for a few days, so he left food and water out for the cat, but only enough for a few days. His father is in very bad shape and is not going to live. So my ex is staying here until he passes. But the cat needs help and needs help now,?and needs food. The cat has been without food for a week. I just found this out.

Is there anyone at all who can please go feed this cat? If a rescue can even take the cat and find it a good home, that would be even better. This cat is living outside. This is a rural area and there are a lot of coyotes. I don’t want to call the pound there, the cat would never make it out alive and I am pretty sure they use gas.

If anyone is able to help, please contact me offlist and I will give you the information. I will be glad to paypal money for food.

Thanks so much,

Lynn

griffin ga HEARTBREAKING!! 16-yr old BLIND CHOW @ GA GAS SHELTER NEEDS HELP!!

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on September 15, 2007
If anyone can help, the phone number to the
Spaulding shelter is (770) 467-4772
His I.D. number is B07-0498.
 
**** PLEASE CROSS-POST FAR & WIDE!!! ****

Hello, everybody. It’s me again.

This one is a real heart-breaker. I just received
word that the owners of a beautiful, BLIND 16-YEAR OLD
CHOW dumped him yesterday at a high kill shelter in
Georgia (the Spaulding County Animal Control Shelter
in Griffin, GA); this shelter still uses the GAS CHAMBER!!

 

This poor old fella must be terrified! Can you imagine
how he must feel, after giving 16 years of love and
devotion, only to be dumped unceremoniously at a
horrible, strange, noisy pound where he must sleep,
day and night, on a cold concrete floor, with nobody
to love or comfort him? And then to ultimately
experience his last moments dying in a gas chamber,
never really knowing what had happened to him? It’s
just too horrible.

Is there anyone out there who might be able to open
their heart and home to this beautiful, dignified
senior Chow boy? He deserves far better than a gas
chamber death.

Here is a link to his photo:
http://www.oniva.com/upload/1159/seniorblindchow.jpg

*** If anyone can help, the phone number to the
Spaulding shelter is (770) 467-4772. *** The shelter
is open M-F, from 10:00am-4:00pm EST.

Please, please hurry, as this sad boy’s last day is
September 19 (next Wednesday). His I.D. number is

If need be, I can try to help you find transport for
him.

All best,

Mom and pups found a TEMPORARY foster Wed….still need permanent help for all dogs and
Immediate help for 2 blind males….ONE DAY LEFT!

PERSON COUNTY, NC-GASSING FACILITY-NO MERCY FOR BLIND DOGS WILL BE SHOWN!

Owner evicted – 2 blind adult males and 1 blind adult female (nursing 3 puppies that were born on August 8th) – Australian Shepherd mixes need rescue BEFORE SEPT. 14th or they will be taken to our local shelter and euthanized.  The animal shelter in this county does not make any “special needs” animals available for adoption or even rescue.  If they are taken there they will be immediately euthanized.  PLEASE HELP!   Here are some details:

Some time ago you received a plea from me for 4 blind and deaf little aussie mix puppies, and many of you sent offers to help (all 4 are now living happily ever after in their forever homes, thanks to your many crossposts and emails).  The female (now with new litter) and one of the males are the parents of those puppies.  Mom has since been living tied to a tree, and the two males are in a pen and getting no attention at all…just the basics – food, water, and a small dog house for shelter. 

Owner has now been evicted and the animals must go.  He does not want them euthanized and has asked me to try and get them to a rescue.  His property must be cleaned out and all dogs must be gone by Friday, September 14th. 

The dogs:  Mom (named “Girlie”)  is blind and around 4 years old (they think).  According to the owner, her 4-week old puppies are not blind (they were fathered by a lab/hound mix…they think).  She is very shy, but seems very gentle. 
The two males are also blind and approx. 3 years old (Girlie is their mother).  The two males have been living together in a pen and are very shy but not aggressive.

The males are not neutered (and obviously Girlie is not spayed).  They have had no vet care to date, but I am willing to pay for vaccinations for all 6 if necessary, if there is a rescue out there who can take them, or even if there is a foster home out there so that it buys us more time to look for a rescue. 

Photos of the adults are attached – I hope to go out and get photos of the puppies this weekend and can forward them if anyone needs them.  If you are on digest and are unable to see the photos, please email me and I will gladly send them to you individually.

Please – if you can help or know any rescue or any person who might, please forward this email or contact me at  photobycd@yahoo.com.

Thank you.

Safe Haven of Iowa County is a limited admission facility based out
of the Williamsburg Iowa area. We are the only animal shelter in our
county. We are all volunteers and have no full time staff at the
shelter.

We had a stray mother come in on Sept 7 who has no use of her back
legs and is due with kittens the last week of September based on x-
rays taken. She is incontinent and due to the paralysis will require
emergency C-Section. The X-rays revealed no injuries so it is hard
to know if she will ever get the use of her legs back.

We need help! We don’t have full time staff and foster homes are
rare. We are looking for help from other people to ensure that she
is safe and can get the emergency care that she needs.

If you can help us place her in a foster home, animal sanctuary or
with fundraising efforts etc. Please contact me
rinthea@wesavepets.com
Her medical bills have totalled over 1,000.00 so far and emergency C-
Section will be another 1,000.00 in addition to trying to build a
suitable area for her.

We really want to get her into a sanctuary environment with full
time staff so if you know of any resources for us PLEASE help us
save her!

URGENT! Roxboro, NC 3 blind Aussie mixes + 3 nursing pups need rescue

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on September 6, 2007
CONTACT INFO:  photobycd@yahoo.com

***PLEASE CROSSPOST ***

Owner evicted – 2 blind adult males and 1 blind adult female (nursing 3 puppies that were born on August 8th) – Australian Shepherd mixes need rescue BEFORE SEPT. 14th or they will be taken to our local shelter and euthanized.  The animal shelter in this county does not make any “special needs” animals available for adoption or even rescue.  If they are taken there they will be immediately euthanized.  PLEASE HELP!   Here are some details:

Some time ago you received a plea from me for 4 blind and deaf little aussie mix puppies, and many of you sent offers to help (all 4 are now living happily ever after in their forever homes, thanks to your many crossposts and emails).  The female (now with new litter) and one of the males are the parents of those puppies.  Mom has since been living tied to a tree, and the two males are in a pen and getting no attention at all…just the basics – food, water, and a small dog house for shelter. 

Owner has now been evicted and the animals must go.  He does not want them euthanized and has asked me to try and get them to a rescue.  His property must be cleaned out and all dogs must be gone by Friday, September 14th. 

The dogs:  Mom (named “Girlie”)  is blind and around 4 years old (they think).  According to the owner, her 4-week old puppies are not blind (they were fathered by a lab/hound mix…they think).  She is very shy, but seems very gentle. 
The two males are also blind and approx. 3 years old (Girlie is their mother).  The two males have been living together in a pen and are very shy but not aggressive.

The males are not neutered (and obviously Girlie is not spayed).  They have had no vet care to date, but I am willing to pay for vaccinations for all 6 if necessary, if there is a rescue out there who can take them, or even if there is a foster home out there so that it buys us more time to look for a rescue. 

Photos of the adults are attached – I hope to go out and get photos of the puppies this weekend and can forward them if anyone needs them.  If you are unable to see the photos, please email me and I will gladly send them to you individually.

Please – if you can help or know any rescue or any person who might, please forward this email or contact me at  photobycd@yahoo.com.

Thank you.

Fw: Australian Cattle Dog puppy – injured – needs home and surgery

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on September 6, 2007
CONTACT PERSONrosiemauzy@yahoo.com
 
Maybe you can help some how. I rescued a Red ACD puppy she is about
4 or 5 months old. The owner was going to put the pup to sleep,
stating that his children were afraid of the puppy. To make a long
story short I received the puppy on Saturday August 25,2007 notice
the puppy had a limp in her right rear leg. Took the puppy to the
vet on Monday August 27,2007 only to find out that the puppy has a
bone chip in the knee area that was displaced and it will required
surgery. 1. I took on the puppy with the intentions of finding her a
new home ( I have a 10 month old lab of my own). 2. I can’t afford
the cost of the surgery ( was told it could cost from anywhere from
$2500.00 to $5000.00 for the surgery). The puppy is very friendly
and loveable. The owner told me the puppy was house trained – I
don’t think so. I don’t think much time was spent with the puppy.
Again she is a sweet heart. She is good with my children and my
dog. I was just wondering if you know of anyone wanting this puppy
and willing to take this added expense. I have tried my hardest to
find her a new home but have been unsuccessful – I will have to
turn her over to the local humane society in the near future.
Please let me know as soon as possible if you know of any one
wanting her. I have pictures and I have contacted shelters but had
no luck. We live Maryland. Thanks in advance for any assistances you
may have.

Smokey FIV+ cat for adoption in Connecticut

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on September 3, 2007
Please contact Castaway Cats in CT, 203-924-4781 or jodi@castawaycats.com

Smokey is a sleek, beautiful pewter gray kitty who looks similar to a Turkish Van or Angora with the color of a Russian Blue.  He has silky soft short-medium length fur with a fluffy tail.  He’s a 2 year old neutered male who is so very sweet and loving.  He is very healthy, but has tested postive for FIV — so he needs a home either as an only cat or with another FIV positive cat.  Cats who test positive for FIV can easily live out a cat’s normal lifespan with little or no complications.   .

FIV+ cat for adoption in Connecticut

Fluffy is a gorgeous 3 year old gray tabby who looks similar to a Maine Coon Cat.  He’s a neutered male with thick, medium-length fur and a fluffy tail.  He is very healthy, but has tested positive for FIV — so he needs a home either as an only cat or with another FIV positive cat.  Cats who test positive for FIV can easily live out a cat’s normal lifespan with little or no complications. 
Fluffy hates dogs, so would do best in a dog-free household.  He is extremely friendly and affectionate, but can also be sassy and fresh, so we recommend him for an adult-only household.

DC Area, FELV+ cat needs home

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on September 2, 2007

CROSSPOSTING, Contact info below:

 Wendy Sue lazyneko@cox.net

I’m still desperately trying to find a place for a FELV+ stray. He’s been
vetted, neutered and is so sweet that I’d hate for him to go to a refuge. He’s
definitely a house cat and purrs nonstop when being petted.

He’s being kept in a 2.5’x2.5’x2. Enough room for food and litter, but not
much else. He’s getting
increasingly unhappy and it’s not right for him to have to stay there. Can’t
keep him at my place as there is just no spare room to house him away from my
own cats in my townhouse.

Please, can’t someone help make this kitty happy?

DE (Lewes): Blind Cat @ Trailer Park

CONTACT PERSON:  Darnot@aol.com

An older longhair dilute calico who is almost completely blind. Husband claims that his ex “up and left them” and he is more of a dog person. The calico urgently needs to find a safe place! She is so lovely. But she cannot see cars driving by. Her mate, also a senior, is a declawed b/w tuxedo. He seems to be ok, a neighbor is feeding him, but clearly it is far from ideal. The cats are scared of the guy’s two dogs who he prefers and allows in the trailer. Please email me if you can help.
