Cherokee and Cobb county were working together to help
this guy before his time was up. He was turned in as a stray and, given
his age and blindness, no one – rescue group or public – was looking to
save him. Yet, something was special about this sweet soul and said he
wasn’t ready to die. So, Susan, Director of Training, and Bill, one of
our many awesome volunteers, pulled him from the county just hours
before he was to be euthanized. Mo was transported immediately to our
vet, North Roswell, for a thorough check-up. Mo is in excellent health!
We immediately put Mo into a foster home where he is receiving the
special care and attention he needs and deserves. His foster mom
writes: “Mo is a confident, sprightly little guy who does not let his
blindness stop him from exploring and getting around. He listens
carefully for sounds and is very responsive when called. He loves to be
carried and seems to be happiest being in his human’s lap. He is
energetic and likes to play. He weighs about 5 pounds and is estimated
to be 12 years old. The vet said that little dogs live long lives so he
will probably give someone companionship for quite a few years.”
Though Mo is being cared for in a great foster home, he needs a
permanent home where he can settle and live forever.

Good with children: Yes

The intake team at OPP monitors the county shelters and
euthanasia lists with the goal of rescuing animals before their
“death date”. Intake team member, Sandy Adcock visits and
monitors Douglas County. This is where she met “Emmitt” who
had been caught in a trap and turned in as a stray. Sandy was concerned
about Emmitt surviving another week in the county shelter because he
was starting to sniffle. If the county believes a dog to be sick, they
are more likely to euthanize. Sandy kept that from happening! Upon
Emmitt arriving to OPP and receiving a bully rub from one of our
awesome volunteers, we discovered that “Emmitt” is actually
an “Emmie”! This girl just wants to please! Even though
some cruel person totally cut off her ears and half her tail, she is
sweet and loving to every human friend she meets!

An important part of Our Pal’s Place mission is to provide educational services to the community with the goal of ending the killing of animals in county shelters due to pet overpopulation. Part of our education includes the importance of spay-neuter. A fact that our Community Outreach Lead, Dee McGowan, provides is 10,000 babies are born on average every day and 70,000 puppies and kittens are born every day. This means that each baby born must have 7 puppies/kittens in order to provide homes for the animals vs euthanize due to overpopulation. A female Collie mix was not spayed and had a litter of 5 pups who now need homes. The father is a Husky mix. These pups are super,super cute!! They have been in a foster home since birth, are well socialized with cats, dogs and kids, and are almost house trained. Cowboy is the biggest of the litter and more dominant than the other siblings. He is quite a cute character! Because he was always in the middle (literally) of his litter mates, we never noticed that he was blind. After the majority of his litter mates were adopted and he was moved into a new room in our facility, we noticed he ran (literally) into walls and other objects. His blindness explains why he barks more when he is alone…he is calling for companionship and help. Cowboy is amazingly smart and very resilient. He does not allow his blindness to hinder his puppiness! Please come meet this cute guy!

Marietta, GEORGIA – RE: “Sniffles” – dog born w/no nose Needs a home ++Video++

Good with other dogs: Yes

Good with cats: Unknown

Good with children: Yes

House Trained: Yes

Here is what Douglas County Volunteer Sherri sent Intake Team members about Sniffles: A really special guy that they are trying to get into rescue if possible…he is basically missing his nose and some of his upper jaw/front teeth. He seems to do okay in spite of it. The staff doesn’t want to give up on him and are willing to hold off on putting him down if they can find a group that takes in special needs guys…they are calling him “Sniffles” as he does snort a bit. Does OPP work with special needs/have any connections or do you know of a group that DC can contact for him? I’m attaching photos…it’s a bit shocking at first but he’s such a sweet guy…a young adult Shar Pei mix that came in as a stray. He’s been with someone for a while obviously as his weight was okay and he’s not a puppy (he can eat wet food). He’s afraid of being on leash at the moment but I’m going to see if I can get him to walk with me tomorrow or over the weekend. Sniffles is now in a great OPP foster home! We are appreciative of all of the public and fellow-rescue group support we have received. Sniffles has a great life ahead of him!

Dad Caring For Deployed Son’s 2 Pets Has Too Many Dogs

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on April 22, 2008

This is not a request for help…it’s a request for awareness. These limits on how many animals you can have is yet another reason so many animals are sitting on death row, scared and lonely in shelters instead of their own homes. When you own or rent and have the permission of the landlord you should have the right to have as many animals as you can properly care for. There are no restrictions on how many children you can have…why are furry members of a family limited?

This man took in his son’s dogs while is son went overseas on deployment and now he risks losing those dogs to the shelter because of these limits.

STORY UPDATE: 4/17/08 County Officials Delay Action In Dog Dispute

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — Henry Carroll got into trouble with the county when he agreed to look after his son’s two dogs.

And it’s turning into a dog war.

Discuss This Story

Carroll got into trouble with the county when he agreed to look after
his son Adam’s two dogs. Carroll’s son is overseas fighting in Iraq.

The soldier is scheduled to return home in December, and his father
says he is determined to make sure that when his son returns from his
tour of duty, the dogs are waiting for him.

Carroll already had three dogs of his own. With five dogs, the county said he had two dogs too many.

“If my son’s in Iraq, I can’t watch his dogs according to the county,” Carroll said.

The county says with five dogs Henry’s running a kennel, which he is
not licensed to do. When he asked the county to clarify the definition
of a kennel, he says he got several different answers.

“I said, ‘I want to see the law I’m breaking; show it to me.’”

He said a county official gave him an ordinance, which defines a kennel
as any place with eight or more where dogs or cats are fed, sheltered
and watered.”

But he says another county document sent to him defines a kennel as
any premises where four or more dogs are kept commercially or as pets.

Carroll got the Army to write a letter saying two of the dogs belonged to his son, but county officials didn’t buy it.

They said, “Since Adam didn’t sign it, it really might not be valid because it was signed by his platoon leader.”

Carroll now takes his fight to keep all five dogs to the Cumberland County Board of Adjustment. They meet Thursday night.

Meanwhile, he said if he’s forced to give up any dogs it will be
two of his animals. He said he’s rather do that than break a promise to
his son.

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C.— A Fayetteville man who wanted his day
in court so that he could keep five dogs in his house, including two
that belong to his son who is fighting in Iraq, didn’t get a chance to
plead his case. But he didn’t lose his dogs either.
Discuss this story
Previous story: County: Dad Caring For Deployed Son’s 2 Pets Has Too Many Dogs (4/15/08)
Henry Carroll went face-to-face with Cumberland County and the county blinked.
Before he ever got a chance to utter a word at a public hearing
Thursday night, county officials said they’d need more time to research
the situation.
As a result, the county said no dogs will be removed from his premises for the time being.
County officials decided to defer action after the county attorney
said he’d need more time to clarify issues between several county
agencies.
“I didn’t expect that,” said a stunned Carroll.
The ordinance limiting dog ownership to three animals has been on
Cumberland County’s books since 1972, but a shelter operator who was
one of a number of people who came to support Carroll said that law’s
no good.
“It’s a badly written law and similar laws have been held
unconstitutional in many other states,” said Linden Spear, director of
“The Haven” animal shelter. “We hope the county realizes it’s a badly
written nuisance law and repeals it immediately.”
The controversy started when Carroll’s son, Adam asked his dad to
watch his two dogs while he was deployed overseas in Iraq with the 101st Airborne. Henry Carroll’s landlord said that he had no problem with that.
“He asked me if he could do it when he found out his son was going
overseas,” said Mike Urian. “At the time I didn’t see any violation. I
didn’t think the county ordinance would count possession as a
violation. I thought ownership would be a violation.”
So for now, Carroll goes about caring for the dogs and waits for his next public hearing.
“I’m relieved.,’’ he admitted. “The burden ain’t lifted yet, but I got more time to prepare for it now.”

Hey, Everyone!
I named the 3 Legged Kitty Gunther. He is such a little love. He likes
stuffed mice he can play with and sometimes takes an interest in a ball
that goes around a circle with holes in it- one of those brainteasers.
I woke up this morning and he was on top of one of my beds. Bless his
heart, he was able to jump up on the bed. His first night he slept on a
fluffy blanket I folded for him by my beds. He follows me around my
bedroom and wants any attention he can get. He got my attention last
night by pulling my warm blanket off me with his claws and meowed for
attention. He loves to rub. He’ll give head rubs on your forehead,
face, jaw, and your hand- Anywhere you’d let him! He is so sweet! He
must be lonely right now as I’m flying and out of town. (I’m a flight
attendant.)He hangs out in my bedroom and my other 2 are in the rest of
my apartment. But Gunther has a huge window to look out of and some
toys. He wants to intereact and play with anyone! I appreciate the
crossposting going on. A good home who’d be willing to have an FIV+ cat
would be a dream come true. I’ll keep you posted on his progress.

Savannah, GA. – Little Gorda needs donations for surgery

Please Say a Little Prayer for Gorda from Chatham County AC., Savannah, GA


When I saw this face, I fell in love. She is the poster child for the wonderful
“gray muzzles”.

Gorda is an 11 yr. old Labrador Retriever who was brought into Chatham County AC in Savannah, GA by animal control, after being found
wandering all alone. She has been in the shelter for almost a week,
and thankfully a local resident has miraculously offered to foster her
and spare her life.

Friday morning (today)she is scheduled for surgery to remove the
tumor. Her foster mom has been kind enough to do this out of the goodness of her heart, and we would like to now help her in her
kindness to save Gorda.

A monster broke 3 of his little legs!

“FRANKIE’S PLEA FOR HELP”

PLEASE HELP SAVE MY LEGS

For those of you who love animals and realize how they are, all to often, the helpless victims of mankind’s abuse and cruelty, please read Frankie’s story below. I am the foster mom for a now 6 month old puppy by the name of Frankie.

He is yet another victim of Animal Cruelty!

This little boy did nothing to deserve the pain and agony he has suffered. He was picked up as a stray on the streets of Philadelphia by a local animal shelter. Only being 4 ½ – 5 mo. old, this poor baby had 1 broken leg and 2 fractured legs. He is now safe and with us – (Philadelphia Fuzzy Paw Rescue).

PLEASE DONATE TO HIS FUND… A PAY PAL BUTTON HAS BEEN SET UP ON: WWW.PFPR.PETFINDER.ORG FRANKIE Here’s the list of Frankie’s injuries:

Fractured right rear leg.
Right front ankle was broken and healed incorrectly on its own.
Left front elbow was fractured, healed incorrectly and may need to be amputated.
The only GOOD leg Frankie has is his left rear!

Frankie’s right rear leg was operated on by Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Center in Langhorne, PA, to repair the Right Calcaneus Fracture. He was operated on by 2 Ortho Specialists, Dr. Kelli Russell & Dr. Nicole Salas. He now has a pin & wire holding his leg together, and a very thick splint covering his leg. Antibiotics, pain killers and 3-4 follow ups for bandage changes and x-rays will still need to be done to check and see how the bone is healing.

His 2 ½ hr. operation cost $3,000, which we paid out of our own pocket.
Frankie is and has been on RESTRICTED movement. He must spend hours & hours in his crate during his recovery. He’s sad & depressed and whimpers to let me know he’s unhappy.

Potty breaks are only allowed “on leash”. He’s never played fetch, romped around the yard or just stretched his legs to RUN. Almost everything outside scares him, as he’s never been well enough to be walked or socialized. Have you ever tried to hold back a puppy from playing?????? It’s heart breaking.

Frankie still has a long way to go and WE desperately need YOUR help and prayers for his healing and another surgery to save his left front leg from amputation. PLEASE, if there is anything you can donate to his surgery and follow-up care, please send it to the following address: God Bless you for your kindness.

L.A., CA. “Flakes” 6 lb. white, female terrier mix! – Needs orthopedic surgery

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on April 20, 2008

FLAKES – ID#A939297

My name is Flakes and I am an unaltered female, tan Terrier and Scottish Terrier. The shelter thinks I am about 1 years and 0 months old.

I have been at the shelter since Apr 10, 2008.

This little 6 lb. white,female terrier mix is as cute as a button. Poor little “Flakes” came into the shelter as a stray dog on 04-10-08. She had a homemade bandage on her right hindleg. It was hiding a dangling,smashed and bruised leg. X-rays confirmed a bad fracture that will ultimately need an orthopedic surgeon’s evaluation for possible orthopedic surgery. Won’t you please help with the cost for this surgery? There is a nice lady that is very interested in adopting “Flakes”‘ but needs a little help with the cost of surgery.

Thank you.

Our dog has Lymphoma and needs Chemo

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on April 20, 2008

PLEASE HELP! Our dog Hank was diagnosed with Lymphoma today, which is a common type of cancer in dogs. He needs a 6-month chemotherapy treatment to survive. Our poor boy has been through so much in his short 5 years of life, and he’s still happy as ever. To tell you a little about him: my husband and I are his 4th owner, and we are happy to say that he will never see a 5th. He has found a home and a family with us, and we couldnt imagine life without him.

Aside from being passed from household to household all his life, he was also bit by a cottonmouth snake (very poisoness) when he was a year old. His previous owners took him to the vet and saved his life. On top of that, just last year, a steer got into our yard and hit him head on and it caused him to develop wobblers syndrome. Wobbler’s Syndrome causes psychological problems and also prevents a dog from being able to use their back legs. We took him in to have back surgery, and after being in the hospital for a month and a half, he got to come home. We spent weeks walking him around in a sling until he could walk on his own again.

Just as he finally started to fully recover, we found out about this cancer. Since we are still paying the loan off for his surgery he had a year ago, we cannot afford his chemo. He is still such a happy and loving dog, and we cant imagine having to put him down. I know if it were him taking care of us, he would do anything he could to save us. We do not have any children so we consider our pets to be our kids.
Lymphoma is a very treatable cancer and we caught it very early. Now we just need your help! His chemo will actually be very close to $7,000, but if we dont meet our posted goal, then we dont get anything, so we are posting low but hoping high. Every little bit helps.

Thank you all so much and God Bless!
Hank, Holly, and Cade

Please help Neil the cat

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on April 20, 2008

“Neil”, a stray cat, was hit by a car. We took him to the vet, and
his bill is over $2,600. This was paid by credit card, but it is truly
beyond my means. Neil had the head and neck of his left femur removed,
and he has a fractured pelvis. He will need a follow-up vet visit, with
X-rays, in 8 weeks. Generous friends have donated $660 for his care so
far.
Neil was treated first at Berkeley Dog and Cat (emergency), then
moved to Animal Care Clinic in El Sobrante for his surgery. He’s a
sweet kitty, and we hope to locate his owner.

Subject: 10 yr old, one eyed, blind dog, abandoned.


The number of people who have turned their back on this dog is unreal. He was found on the side of the road, with no idea where he was, where to find food, or who to trust.

When the Animal Control office picked him up, his pads were worn & raw, he was dehydrated, skinny, and too exhausted to struggle anymore.
Crying or Very sad

We
named him Danny boy! He spent about 2 weeks recovering and gaining
weight. The his personalty really came out! He has the best personality
a dog could have! He is so smart & loyal! He LOVES attention.

Because the shelter is so full, we had to place him in a short term foster home! But this is only a very short time. We must find a place by NEXT tuesday, 4/15! He is so urgent.

Danny Boy is housebroken, Crate trained, and gets along great with other dogs! He is
in the foster home with someone who is legally blind! He is very gentle, and sweet!


Danny
boy is a 10 yr old, Australian Cattle Dog. He is neutered and has all
shots. He is missing one eye, and his other eye is totally blind. The foster mom said he “smells” his way around the house.

IF you can save him! PLEASE E-mail Tiffany

“Hi. My name is Mickey and I’m a beagle boy who came to the shelter after being hit out on BG Parkway. I ran right out in front of a danged ‘ol car, like some fool. Well, I fought the car, but the car won! The lady was real nice though and she took me to the vet at least, instead of just leaving me there. I just hope I get adopted soon.” Why pay hundreds of dollars for a pet at a store, when you can save a life by adopting a homeless pet? Adoption fee for dogs is only $95 and adoption fee for cats is only $75, and that INCLUDES the spay/neuter and vaccinations! That’s like paying for the veterinary fees and getting the pet for FREE! You can find the link to our adoption application at the bottom of this page.

Did you know that even if you can’t adopt Mickey, you can still help him get a home of his own? And all it takes is a tax-deductible donation of $10-$20! If you don’t have room in your home, but do have room in your heart, you could sponsor this animal. This means you pay part of the adoption fee, making it possible for them to be adopted much sooner.

Financial help needed for Beagle with cancer

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on April 9, 2008

I am writing you a request for help. Our Beagle Sniffy has tested positive for cancer in a lump from our regular Veterinarian Dr. Pierce at Leesville animal hospital ( 919-870-7000). He has referred us to the North Carolina State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital (919-513-6690) in Raleigh, NC and we have an appointment at 11:00 am on Wednesday morning the 9th of April with their Oncology department. The appointment is to set up treatment besides do a few tests. The amount of testing may actually end up cheaper than they have quoted me. But the appointment itself costs $160, the tests they say could be $700 - 900 and possible c-t scan of 600. We have already spent our savings and March's bill money on blood/chem/urine/xray/needle aspirate tests with Dr. Pierce. So I am hoping the cost will be several hundred lower. I am able to still do a little but it is tough being a single mom with a five year old daughter who also needs my care. I am requesting your kind consideration in financial help for our Wednesday appointment. Any help is good help.
I also want to mention that I am trying to sell our Ford escort wagon for $1200 and am advertising it in the herald sun newspaper. It has a book value of $2200, gets great gas mileage, has 130,000 miles on it, only needs a bolt and a clamp, has 4 doors. I am willing to donate for free to any group that helps with the appointment costs on Wednesday. The chemo-treatment could be as soon as this week and NCSU has quoted approximate cost of 100 to hundreds for it. I also want to say I have enrolled Sniffy in pet insurance previous to our knowledge of the cancer but the waiting period has overlapped with that knowledge so this appointment is not covered but in the future all other medical expenses and wellness is covered. Without this medical treatment Sniffy will die.

Thank you, please contact me with any help or ideas or questions,

Moving! VA: Two 3-legged cats + Maine Coon need homes or they go to the shelter

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on April 9, 2008

I am preparing to move next week (April 10 through April 15) and need to find homes for my three cats. Besides moving, my son is allergic to them and he seems at times to be getting worse. Anyhow, I hope you may be able to help.

There are a total of three, all females from the same litter and all have been fixed, but not de-clawed. All are basically white and black with two being more white than black and vice versa for the third.

“Minnie,” white and black, had her back left leg amputated because she was injured badly (vet said she was probably hit by a car, but we don’t know for sure). “Oreo” her sister, mostly black and white, has a front left leg that is paralyzed (vet said she probably pulled all her nerves out of her leg and can’t feel a thing). Mary J is somewhat long haired and quite pretty. (As for the two that have the leg problems, though they both hobble around while walking, you wouldn’t know each had a problem when they are running.)

Unfortunately, the cats probably need to get their check-ups also.

I can be reached at the following numbers (W) 703 604-9022; (C) 540 287-2640 or via e-mail at brad.heller@ dodig.mil. Thank you for any help you can provide me.

Hey, Everyone!
I named the 3 Legged Kitty Gunther. He is such a little love. He likes
stuffed mice he can play with and sometimes takes an interest in a ball
that goes around a circle with holes in it- one of those brainteasers.
I woke up this morning and he was on top of one of my beds. Bless his
heart, he was able to jump up on the bed. His first night he slept on a
fluffy blanket I folded for him by my beds. He follows me around my
bedroom and wants any attention he can get. He got my attention last
night by pulling my warm blanket off me with his claws and meowed for
attention. He loves to rub. He’ll give head rubs on your forehead,
face, jaw, and your hand- Anywhere you’d let him! He is so sweet! He
must be lonely right now as I’m flying and out of town. (I’m a flight
attendant.)He hangs out in my bedroom and my other 2 are in the rest of
my apartment. But Gunther has a huge window to look out of and some
toys. He wants to intereact and play with anyone! I appreciate the
crossposting going on. A good home who’d be willing to have an FIV+ cat
would be a dream come true. I’ll keep you posted on his progress.

PLEASE DO NOT HIT REPLY TO RESPOND.

I AM NOT THE CONTACT; ONLY THE MESSENGER.

PLEASE CONTACT THE SHELTER OR THE PERSON(S) LISTED.

THANK YOU !

Carthage, IL — GRAPHIC PICS — Dog needs donations for surgery

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on April 9, 2008

****Please don’t look at the pictures if you have a weak stomach****

I got a call this morning from the a.c.warden “we have a mess out here!” So I flew out of my house and got to the pound as quick as I could.

We believe this girl was caught in a trap and began to eat her own leg so she could free herself, this wound is about 2 weeks old…the smell is unreal!!! I am still shaking and crying…..sigh…….the whole time she was wagging her tail and I scooped her up, put her in my truck and raced to the vets.

She is in real bad shape, her heart rate is low she is extremely emaciated, dehydrated and of course her leg. The immediately gave her pain meds and some sedation meds, the vet did a heartworm check which is neg and started her on IV fluids and have done a blood panel which is showing her liver is very stressed.

She is going to have surgery in the morning to remove her leg at the hip.

She is in good spirits know but we are not sure she is going to make it.

I need donations please!! I do this on my own and don’t have many resources to pay for something this big but I couldn’t just have her put down..if she was able to survive with all the rain and cold nights and not killed by other animals and was able to make it this far……..she needs to be given a chance, please if you can help me, I can give you a receipt since I have my 501c non for profit.

She is at the Hancock Vet Clinic in Hamilton, IL their number is 217-847-3911 and their address is 1930 Keokuk St. Hamilton, IL 62341, my address is West Hancock Canine Rescue 2040 Keokuk St. Hamilton, IL 62341.

Please I am begging you to help save her……in all my rescue experience I have never personally seen anything like this..sigh…
