16 dogs DESPERATELY seeking a loving home. Can you please help?

I'm Frankie - I would love to love you!

**UPDATE**

All dogs featured in this post have been adopted!  WOOHOO!! 😀

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:

Leon found a home at last…

Leon

***UPDATE*** 20/5/10

I am VERY HAPPY to let you know that Leon has found a wonderful home at last!

I am elated and sad all at the same time – Leon was “one of those cats” who gets under your skin and nuzzles up to your heart – even when you try your utmost to not allow him to do so.  Leon was trusting, warm, playful, mischevious & protective all at the same time – he tried to take over our home and call it his own.  Of course, I’m in the business of finding a home for these guys, not for keeping them (the house would soon be overflowing, and besides, he tried to beat up my cat!) so it never was an option for him to stay here.  I always try to keep a safe distance (emotionally) – so that the transition from here to there is less painful for us all.  But… like I said, Leon didn’t allow me to do that so yes, I’m sad to see him go and anxious that he will be happy in his new home.  I hope I didn’t allow him to love me too much as that would mean a change now would be hard on him.  I hope ….

I do know that the lovely lady who came to adopt him will definitely love him to the maximum!  It was easy to see that Leon liked her instantly – and that is such a brilliant sign!  Thank you U’Llynda for opening your heart to Leon and for offering the opportunity to share his life with you.  I know for sure that you have a very special cat with you now – and I wish you both so much fun and happiness!  May he warm your bed at night, and not choose your couch as his scratching post! 😉

Time for me to move on…. there are many other kitties needing help.  Watch this blog for the next instalment!

Love and gratitude to the animals that make my heart sing, and the humans that restore my faith.

***UPDATE 5/5/10***

Leon is now fully recovered and now SERIOUSLY needs to find a home.  He is cooped up in a single room as I cannot allow him in the house as my dog and cat fight him.  I’m unable to let him wander outside as my yard is not enclosed and I cannot risk him running away and entering the uncertain world of a stray again.  I spend as much time as I can with him but of course, it’s not enough – he really does live to be patted and loved.  PLEASE consider giving Leon a home – if he can sit by your side he is completely content – he really is the most adorable cat with very striking markings (a spotted leopard tummy!) and has such a great temperament.  I think he would really suit being an only pet but he should integrate ok with other animals given time and supervision.

I am currently fostering a very sweet cat that really MUST be saved! Leon is an absolute darling, very VERY affectionate and no trouble whatsoever! He was handed in to the Cat Haven as a stray having been found in Clarkson hanging around someone’s house for a little while. He was unsterilized when he came in but of course the Haven have sterilised him now. Leon was sick with flu but he is recovering quickly and is now getting very bored in the single room I have to keep him in (my cat is very jealous and will fight him if he wanders the house!!). He will soon be fully recovered and desperately needing a permanent home so PLEASE consider taking Leon in. He is honestly an absolutely adorable character who LOVES a cuddle and to play – he would make a perfect companion for just about anyone! He is coming out of his shell and the last thing i want to do is send him back to the Cat Haven and an uncertain future – he’s just too adorable and so deserves to live a happy, loved life. Please email me to find out more – or call on 0402 263 554.

Thanks for helping – please spread the word for Leon and other abandoned pets listed here http://ow.ly/1xpCT

Tillie & Lexie finally found a home

Lexie wants to give you a cuddle

**UPDATE**  This lucky pair have been adopted!  YAAAY!!

Jasmine from Staffy & Bully Breed Rescue has two kittens that are VERY desperate to find a new home – as the people who promised to take them changed their mind at the last minute. 🙁

Their story is below – but who could refuse those beautiful white whiskers and chins??

Please post a comment here or email me at vegheads@sustainablelife.net.au if you’re interested. Luv Maree

Lexie + Tillie were going to their new home today unfortunately I got a phone call yesterday, from the people who were going to take them, they had changed their mind! I am now back to being desperate to finding these gorgeous kitty’s a home of their own – unfortunately my adult cat hasn’t taken to them – so for the past 2 months, my own cat has been living outside (refusing to come into the house) – which is extremely unfair and a little worrying!

Both Tillie + Lexie are hassle free kittens, they are up to date with worming and flea treatments, are kitty litter trained and aren’t fussy with what they eat (love their food!). They are currently allowed outside every morning for about an hour (while I get ready for work) then are inside for the day, once I’m home they are allowed out until the evening (basically until I go to bed) – they haven’t attempted to jump out the backyard – they seem quite content to hang out with the dogs and explore. They are good with dogs – I foster care and currently have 4 dogs- they play, chase and curl up with them all.

Lexie is definitely the more confident of the two and is often rolling around with my pup and playing chasey. She seems to be the one who is a bit more confident about exploring and putting up with the dogs roughing her about.

Tillie prefers more to cuddle up then play with the dogs, as they can get a little too rough for her. She seems to be a bit more of an inside cat than an outside one but I wonder if that has more to do with the dogs? She isn’t as brave as her sister but she’s starting to get more confident.

Both girls get very smoochy and like getting pats and cuddles – they aren’t too big on being picked up but will let you for a short while.

They are a little wary of strangers but doesn’t take Lexie too long to suss you out and realise you’re ok – while Tillie can take a little more time adjusting.

Would love to see these girls homed together as they are great mates and it would be sad to see them split, but I need to find them homes so will do if I have to.

Their adoption fee is $140 each this includes vaccination, sterilising, microchipping, kitty litter tray and bowl – if someone did want both of the girls I would reduce their adoption fee to $125 each plus would let them go with their toys and their cat scratcher pole.

I know there are plenty of kittens/cats needing homes and each one of them has a sad story – these girls are great kittens who will fit into any home and after fostering them for 2 months now, I am honestly desperate to find homes so I can give my own cat back her house!!

Cheers Jasmine

URGENT Home Needed for Sweet Marvin

Marvin is so affectionate

**UPDATE**

Marvin has been adopted – how wonderful!!

Marvin is a 5 year old Lab x staffy who has had a very rough start to life. Thankfully, he has been rescued and now he really needs a family to love him. He is a beautiful boy and would be an asset to any family, could it be yours? Please share his call for help with everyone you know – Marvin deserves a second chance.

Friendly, energetic, great with other dogs, great with kids – that’s ‘Marvin’ (not his real name). He’s a very cuddly boy!

Marvin was rescued from a cruel home, and was very skinny. The people who rescued him unfortunately can’t keep him as they already have their quota of dogs …… plus a cat that has it in for Marvin! So he needs a new place to hang his hat as soon as possible.

If you would like to find out more, please contact Jeane of Best Friends Animal Rescue on 0415 779 610 or email bfarescue@westnet.com.au.
