Happy Ending

Majic & Zoe are the only girls left – please help them!

***UPDATE***

Majic and Zoe have been adopted – thanks to Bec @ Staffy & Bully Breed rescue and the APS! 🙂

 

** UPDATE – 8/11/10 **
All of the dogs in this post have either been rehomed or taken on by Animal Protection Society – except for Majic and Zoe. Majic in particular is in danger as her time is running out so please help to spread the word for her and if you can, please consider offering Majic a home. If you would like to offer to foster Majic, contact Bec Johnson instead of the Pound. Let’s work together to save Majic from euthanasia!!

This message comes from Bec of Staffy and Bully Breed Rescue. These dogs are desperate and are located in Stirling Pound in Perth, Western Australia. Please read their stories below and if you can help, please do so, take a look at little Minnie at bottom of this post, she looks terrified. :'(. We are their last chance – these dogs need a hero, could it be you?

Hi All,

This weeks we have quite a few urgent staffies and american staffies in pounds plus some littlies who are looking for homes. Below are the Stirling dogs all females and requiring homes. Quite a few were put down last week at pounds so we really need people to help spread the word, whether you can adopt, foster care or just forward on this email, every little bit helps. We will send some seperate emails for others needing homes in other pounds.

The City of Stirling Animal Care Facility is located at 15 Natalie Way, Balcatta.

Telephone: 9345 8584

The Facility is open weekdays 2.00pm – 5.30pm and weekends 12.30pm -1.30pm.

Please ring the pound only if your wanting to adopt, if your wanting to foster your welcome to contact us and we can direct you in the right direction as we have loads of different rescues seeking foster carers for different types of dogs at present.

Adoption fee is $170.00 for any of these dogs.

Price includes vaccination, heartworm test and sterilisation for unsterilised dogs. Registration costs are extra.

First up we have Sharee (photo not avail). American Staffy female approx 3 years of age, not great with other dogs but something that can be worked on and of course lovely with people and has basic obedience training. Being youngish, a moderately active family would suit her best. Sharee is one of the more desperate cases as she has been in the pound 3 weeks now and her time is limited.

Next up we have Majic..a female kelpie x staffy/bully type. Shes under 12 months and would suit an active household who has the time to put some training into her. A home with little kids would not be suitable as she is a bit jumpy … but nothing a good run out of the pound and some regular training wouldnt solve. Majic is also quite urgent.

And then we have Zoe…what a sweety! Zoe is a Jack Russell x female approx 8 or 9 years and looking for her retirement and a casual daily walk.

Next we have Esta and Minnie (terrier x and chi x) (no photos). These two girls came in together and Derek the Animal Care Facility Co Cordinator at Stirling would really like to see these two go together as they really love each other. These two would suit a quieter family.

Extremely URGENT- Staffy x needs home by tomorrow!

***UPDATE***
I just heard from Bec that this guy was adopted! WOOHOO!! THANK YOU to everyone who shared his story!! 😀 xx

Please help this little guy!

From: Bec Johnson

Hi All,

There is an extremely urgent case at Wanneroo Pound. A male Staffy x approx 6 to 8 months (rangers guess) needs a home or will be put down tomorrow. He needs secure fencing ie approx 6ft fencing as he can jump so no low fencing and preferably a home where he can be indoors when your home, as this may be part of the reason he will jump out, due to lack of attention. It will also probably help once hes sterilised…no hormones to make him want to stray to find a mate.

He has until tomorrow to find a home so if everyone could please forwad this to your workmates friends and family asap we may be able to save him.

Please contact Wanneroo Animal Care Centre on 9405 5000 during office hours, or 1300 138 393 after hours if you can give him a home.

Kind Regards,
Bec

Pedigree Ragdolls need a loving home

***UPDATE***

These lovely kitties finally found a home!

This message comes from Cat Haven in Shenton Park (Western Australia). A wonderful opportunity to save a a beautiful pair of pedigree cats! 😀

Coco (Chocolate Point) and Sachi (Lilac Point) are two absolutely stunning pedigree Ragdoll brothers who have been surrendered to Cat Haven due to allergies in the family. They are typical ragdolls, sociable affectionate and cuddly; Coco is the more out-going of the pair while Sachi is more content to just laze around all day long. Both like cuddles and sleeping on your couch or bed, they love to be brushed and pampered; these boys are way above shelter life, they need a real home to call their own! Coco and Sachi have been indoor cats their whole life and it really needs to stay that way if possible; they will be best suited to a home without little kids or other animals, though they are laidback and friendly and shouldn’t take too long to settle in.
As they are brothers who have been together it would be lovely to see them go home together (though we will separate if absolutely necessary).Although these boys have a couple of special needs/wants in their new home you shouldn’t allow this to put you off. They are genuinely lovely cats with lots of love to give, just looking for that special someone to give it to. They are unique and beautiful and are looking for someone who will love them for their personalities, not just their good looks and breeding.

Coco and Sachi are 5 years. The adoption package is $165 inclusive of sterilisation, microchipping and vaccination, plus we do “buy one get one half price” so if you wanted both these beautiful boys you will still be paying under $300 for 2 sterilised, chipped, vaccinated, worm and flea treated pedigree Ragdolls – what a bargain!
Please contact me on 0403 152 991 if you’re interested.
Cheers, Freedom 🙂

Recommended Books

Recommended read – Skinny Bitch

Check out this book! I’m reading it now and just LOVING it!

Skinny Bitch

Not your typical boring diet book, this is a tart-tongued, no-holds-barred wakeup call to all women who want to be thin. With such blunt advice as, “Soda is liquid Satan” and “You are a total moron if you think the Atkins Diet will make you thin,” it’s a rallying cry for all savvy women to start eating healthy and looking radiant. Unlike standard diet books, it actually makes the reader laugh out loud with its truthful, smart-mouthed revelations. Behind all the attitude, however, there’s solid guidance. Skinny Bitch espouses a healthful lifestyle that promotes whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, and encourages women to get excited about feeling “clean and pure and energized.”

9 dogs in desperate need. Can you help?

***UPDATE***

All of the dogs here were either adopted or returned to their original home, with the exception of one – which was very aggressive and not claimed so sadly, was not suitable for rehoming.

It’s terrible when animals have to die because we humans either can’t be bothered with them anymore or we lose them and fail to look hard enough for them. Animals can become aggressive when they are confused and scared – or as a result of mistreatment – which makes it nearly impossible to rehome them due to the high likelihood of dog attack. We can sit back and blame the system, the shires, the rescuers, the former owners… for not being good enough, not trying hard enough, for not caring – but it is up to all of us to lead by example to help end the sad reality of pet overpopulation.

If you have an animal, always – ALWAYS have it desexed. Microchip your pet so you can find him or her if they are lost – but most importantly of all.. we need all remember that animals are a LONG TERM commitment that require care, love, dedication and money to support. It is THEIR RIGHT to be treated with love and respect – not their privilage. Animals are not sticks of furniture or toys – they are living creatures with interests of their own. I hope one day that the purchase and “ownership” of animals will be a much stricter and time consuming quest – that those who plan to own an animal are carefully screened and approved license before they are allowed to buy. If this was the case, there would be far less “impulse buys” and carefree purchases… and dogs like these may be able to enjoy a more secure life with those who cared enough about them to work hard to include them in their homes.

For now, if you own a pet – love it and respect it, remember how much it gives you and how unique an individual he or she is. If you don’t own a pet but would like to – give it very careful consideration before you go ahead. If – after soul searching – you know you would make a wonderful owner – please PLEASE ADOPT and DO NOT BUY from a petshop or breeder.

In memory of the many thousands of animals that are euthanized each year because they are unloved and forgotten. Lest we forget.

Maree

2 Border Collies found a home at last!

*** UPDATE***

These dogs were adopted – thanks to the tireless work of Jeane at Best Friends Animal Rescue. xx

 

*** UPDATE 13TH SEPT 2010***

I have just received word from Best Friends Animal rescue that they are in the process of taking possession of these dogs.  This is great news for both of these lovely pooches but the situation is still urgent as Jeane has VERY limited space and desperately needs to move them on to another foster or permanent adoption home ASAP.  So please, do what you can to help this lovely lady out.  If you can offer a temp home to both or either dog, she would be very happy to hear from you.  And if you can adopt – we will all be over the moon!!  I would like to offer a brand new water bowl and dog toy to any blog reader who adopts one or both of these lovely pooches.  Please hurry and call Jeane today – her number is below.

******

Please pass this link on to everyone you know who may be able to help this gorgeous pair. They need to be rescued by Sunday 12th September so this is SUPER URGENT – even temporary home at this point would be a huge help.  The dogs are located in Perth metro area – Western Australia – but BFAR will travel to outer suburbs/country for the right home.

Hi Everyone

We are urgently in need of a foster home or permanent home for 2 x 18month old Border Collies, 1 male & 1 female.

Due to a family break up, they need a new home urgently and have until Sunday.

They are beautifully natured dogs, very friendly, cuddly and affectionate. Great with other dogs and the boy in general is very playful and LOVES to play ball.

Please contact us URGENTLY if you are able to help.

Please circulate this email to all of your contacts so we can get the word out these sweet dogs.

If you can help, please contact Jeane of Best Friends Animal Rescue on 0415 779 610.

Thank you!

Hi Everyone, attached is another newsletter featuring dogs needing adoption from the Stirling Pound. If you’re looking for a new pet, one of these guys may well be the perfect pooch for you. Adoption fees are very reasonable at the Pound so you will be saving money and quite literally, saving a life.

The City of Stirling Animal Care Facility is located at 15 Natalie Way, Balcatta.
The Facility is open weekdays 2pm- 5.30pm and weekends 12.30pm-1.30pm.

Please Phone 9345 8584 for more details.

A gift voucher redeemable at Balcatta Vet is included in the sale price which includes vaccination, heartworm test and sterilisation for unsterilised dogs. Council registration is extra.

Cost of adopting one of these dogs is:

Male Female
Sterilised $50.00 $50.00
Unsterilised $160.00 $170.00

http://www.stirling.wa.gov.au/home/services/Pets+and+Animals/

Pound dogs have a LIMITED time so please act quickly if you can help – and please share this post with as many people as you can.

If you’re looking to add a canine friend to your family – please don’t buy from Pet Shops or even breeders – not while there are SO MANY homeless animals being put to sleep every day because nobody wants them. Help a Pound Dog and be rewarded with their unconditional love and save money at the same time! Where else can you get a fully sterilised and vaccinated dog from $50 – $170?

Thanks so much – please share this information with all your friends – it would be wonderful to help each and every one of these dogs as they are on borrowed time… if they are not adopted, they are routinely put to sleep. :’(
