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.

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!

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. :’(

Another Woof Newsletter has come out from the Stirling Pound – this week they have 16 dogs who desperately need a new home. As always, these lovely animals are on borrowed time – if homes are not found soon, they will be put to sleep to make room for more animals being collected every day. Please do what you can to help them – and please do it as soon as you can. As far as I know, most of these dogs have until this Friday (23rd July). Contact the Shire direct on the number detailed below – or post a comment on this blog if you would like to offer help in some other way.

Thanks and appreciation … Luv Maree (animalactionist)

Hamish and Andy need a home ASAP, or will be put down.

**UPDATE!! 13th July**

I just received an email from Bec with WONDERFUL NEWS!!;

Hi All,

Great news, Hamish and Andy have found a home in the hills with a couple on a large block.
Thanks for everyones support and expecially to Brenda at the Examiner for writing and article on them and Nikki for putting flyers up all over the Hills area. 🙂

Kind Regards,
Bec

I concur with Becs sentiments of appreciation! Most importantly I want to thank everyone on Twitter who shared Hamish & Andys story – it was through the Twitter RT’s that Brenda heard about their plight and offered (so generously) to write an editorial. We couldn’t be happier with the results – congratulations Hamish & Andy!!!

**************************************************************************************

An urgent call for help for these two adorable dogs. Please help them if you can, or share this post with your friends to help spread the word. We only have a week to find them a home.

Hi All,

High Wycombe vets contacted me about these two dogs as owner is going to put them down if homes can not be found. I have manged to get him to hold off a week,

The vet said they are healthy and lovely natured dogs and doesnt want to see them put down.

Please forward to all your contacts for these two dogs as this is urgent.

They will require a home with very high fences and to be inside dogs as they do jump out. But I think in the right circumstances where they are getting the attention they need this wont be a major issue. A home where someone is home the majority of the day would be ideal.

Apparently other dogs can bark and approach them and they have no problems and continue doing what they are doing while walking.

I dont see any staffy in them at all so I would say more of shepherd type x although mixed breed would be most appropriate.

Please Contact Steve:
