I have our local shelter on my facebook. They have over 2500 friends, which gets so many more dogs/cats adopted! I fell in love with this lil guy who is a terrier mix (looks Irsh terrier.) Only about half the size.
He has been there since the middle of Febuary. (I think they got him on or around the 19th.) He has been there so long they finally named him Mr. Whiskers. He never stops wagging his tail, and seems to be the sweetest little guy ever.
I have them on my facebook so I can let people know what animals they have, because we all love fur babies. Friends or family may be looking for an animal, and it is great I can show them a dog or cat in desperate need of a home.
This shelter does SO good about adopting out though. Even when they don’t find homes here they have a few different rescue groups set up to get the dogs a foster home or forever home, if they can, in another state.
This is the first time I have ever seen them put “This guy needs a home DESPERATELY.” Which makes me so sad, because he seems like such a great dog.
As of right now though we are at our limit for pets. And no one I know has room for him either. We had planned to get another dog, but we decided to wait.
This is just a sad reminder to PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ADOPT DON’T SHOP! Even if you have your heart set on a certain bread, you can find one if you look long enough! It may not be as soon as you would like but it will be SO WORTH IT!
In our animal shelter they get Chihuahuas, Poms, Labs, Pitbulls, Terriers, Jack Russles, and even today CORGIS! Plus any other breed you could possible think of. They may not be pure bread but they are just as amazing!
I messaged them moments ago asking what donatiosn they take up (Paper towels, dog food, bottled water, dog treats, or even cash?) Because I am so sad about this. I want to help in any way I can. They don’t list their pets on petfinder, so I am going to suggest that.
My two pound puppies are the best dogs ever! They are so sweet. So next time you are looking to add a new furry member to your family please check your local shelters and recue groups!
Here is a photo of the sweet little guy!
I am so sad and desperately want him to get a home, I am at the point of asking if I can foster him while they search for him a home. I would post him on petfinder, too. But I don’t know if it is dueable right now. I honestly don’t think it is. 🙁 I wish I had millions of dollars, and could build a big huge animals sanctuary!
