Shelter Sunday: Chuck / One Hound At A Time / Colorado Springs, CO

Chuck CO

Meet Chuck! This handsome fella is house-trained, good with other dogs, and up to date on shots. Here’s what he has to say for himself:

Hi! I’m Chuck, a 4-year old male lab or hound or dane mix. I was found on the streets with a horrible fungal infection more commonly found in Shar Pei dogs. I’m not convinced I have Shar Pei blood in me, because, look at me! I’m about 58 lbs and could still use a bit more meat on my bones.

Shelter Sunday: Yara / Island Pacific Dog Rescue Society / Qualicum Beach, BC

Yara BC

Meet Yara! This Australian Cattle Dog mix is a beauty. Here’s what her rescuers have to say about her: This beautiful girl is a sweetheart and will love you unconditionally! She absolutely adores people, is good with kids and is looking for an understanding family to make her own. Yara is a 45lbs Australian cattle dog, spayed, housetrained and estimated to be 2 years old.

She is almost completely deaf. She does respond well to visual cues, so with training, her lack of hearing could be easily managed. A home where she can be the center of attention would be ideal! She does like playing with well matched dogs, so one 4-legged companion might work (she can get overwhelmed around too many dogs and get defensive). She has no known history with cats, but is probably best suited to a home with no small animals. Continue reading Shelter Sunday: Yara / Island Pacific Dog Rescue Society / Qualicum Beach, BC

Pandemic Recession Hits Dogs

rp_shelter-dog-232x350.jpg

At the beginning of the pandemic, shelters rejoiced as people who were stuck at home began adopting dogs to keep them company. Now, however, as economic hardships are hitting home, some are being forced to surrender their dogs.

The ASPCA estimates 24.4 million animals will soon be living in poverty with their families due to the virus, a 21% increase since February. ASPCA research shows that a lack of affordable veterinary care and limited access to spay/neuter services are important potential contributors to pet relinquishment. They have launched programs and partnerships in Los Angeles, Miami and New York City to make veterinary care more accessible and affordable. Continue reading Pandemic Recession Hits Dogs

Shelter Sunday: Baby Blue / Out of the Woods Rescue / Little Rock, Arkansas

Baby Blue AR

Meet Baby Blue! Here’s what her rescuers have to say about this Husky / Shepherd mix:

Baby Blue was born after a pregnant dog was dumped in a rural part of Arkansas. We think she is a Shepherd/Husky mix. She was born around September 1st. Baby Blue has one blue eye, which makes her very unique! She has a very sweet personality. She will probably grow to be a medium to large dog.

Baby Blue has started her series of puppy shots & will be spayed and microchipped when she is a little older.

Baby Blue is currently a guest of Out of the Woods Rescue in Little Rock, Arkansas. If you’re lucky enough to be near Little Rock, why not contact the shelter to ask about Baby Blue and all of her friends. Here’s a link to their adoption application or you can call them at 501-503-0606 or 888-633-4442.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

From WEWS in Cleveland: Meet Sir Darius Brown. This handsome 13-year old makes bow ties to help animals get adopted from shelters.

Born with a fine motor delay, Sir Darius needed a project to help him catch up. His mom, a hairdresser, enlisted his help to make hair bows, but soon realized he needed something more. She gave him the supplies to make bow ties, at first for himself, then for shelter animals who arrived in New Jersey from the south after Hurricanes Irma and Harvey.
