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.

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

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. :’(

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)

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.

Three kitties and a bunny…

Hamish is looking for a Home

This weeks Animal Action Alert features three beautiful cats and a bunny who are desperate to find loving homes. Each one has a sad story to tell but like all animals, they are so ready to move on and forgive and forget – wanting only to love and be loved. One of the cats (Becky) and the rabbit (Asher) are fairly traumatized so they will need a caring and gentle approach. With love – just LOVE – these animals will surely flourish! Please read and share this e-newsletter with your friends to help spread the word.

Love and gratitude from me and the critters.

Bella (blue point ragdoll) and Skye seek loving home

UPDATE: I have good news & sad news. Good news is that lovely Bella was adopted, which is a wonderful thing. Sad news is that Skye was not adopted & was put to sleep. :'(

I’m told that tabby cats are very hard to rehome (can’t imagine why) so this is what happens when nobody is willing to take these lovely animals on. The Cat Haven gets so many cats surrendered to them every week – there just isn’t room enough to hold on to unwanted cats long term.

If you can spare some room in your heart & home for a needy kitty – please PLEASE adopt and save a life. It is such a sorry waste for these beautiful animals to be put down.

A desperate call for help from the Shenton Park Cat Haven – please, if you can offer any of these cats a temporary or permanent home, let me know at vegheads@sustainablelife.net.au or contact Freedom on her details below. Thanks – please share this story with your friends.

The situation is very urgent for these beautiful girls, they are currently housed in temporary caging in a quarantine area due to their very mild flu symptoms but they can’t stay there for long. After a recent outbreak of flu here at the Haven our foster carers are pretty much full and options are running out. If you or anyone you know might be interested in taking one or both, please let me know ASAP. Thank you!!!

There’s not much I need to say about Bella – look into those big blue eyes and you’ll be hooked! This one is beautiful inside and out, a sweet and gentle girl who was given up by her owners when they sadly could no longer afford to care for her. Bella was surrendered with her friend Skye and we would ideally like to find them a home together, however we are happy to split if you are only wanting one. We do offer a 2 for 1 adoption package, so the adoption price of $150 remains the same whether you take just one or both.

Skye is a sweet and gentle puss, whose owners sadly had to give up her and her friend Bella because they were no longer able to afford to care for them. Skye can be a little nervous in new situations or with lots of people around so would prefer a quiet home where she will get lots of TLC. Skye may not be as pretty as her friend Bella but she is just as beautiful on the inside, please consider giving her a loving home!

Ideally we would like to see these girls go together however time is of the essence for them and if you are able to take on only one, we are happy to separate. If you would like to take both the adoption price remains the same, as we offer a 2 for 1 deal.
Please contact me directly on 0403 152 991 or at freedom.bradbury@cathaven.com.au if you can offer either Bella or Skye or both a loving home.

Thanks guys!

Freedom 🙂
