Please use an abundance of caution when placing your specialneeds pets. Do not rely on personal impression, not even on "vet checks". If at all possible visit the potential adopter in person or have a trustworthy person do same. You are the only person to protect your pet from falling into the hands of a "con". TRUST BUT VERIFY
His name is Spirit, im guessing 3-4 yrs old, male, neutered, white pit mix with gorgeous blue eyes, he is 100% deaf, he is good with other dogs. Spirit would probably do best in a home without small children, only because small children are more prone to startle a deaf dog.
My name is Powder - because, as you can see, (pictures below) I am all white. I am really, I mean really, a good and super sweet dog (well not sweet like a girl) but sweet like a good boy. My owner told me a couple of weeks ago that my life is going to have to change. It took him a while to tell me, since he was having to sign due to my deafness.
So anyway, once I understood that he was moving out of the country - (I am not really sure what all this means) but I think it means I need a new home. This makes me very sad and I can tell he was REALLY sad when he told me this plan. I know he has been trying to find a place for me and he is having a hard time (I can read lips and sad faces) so I thought I would help him out by contacting some rescue places that are deaf dog friendly.
Name: Raine Powder - everyone calls me Powder
Size: Large but not hugely large
Looks: Very handsome if I do say so myself
Age: 5 years old
Neutered: yes I know what this means. YES
Mood: All around happy and I love to play. I also swim when I get hot
Color: All White
Can you please call my Aunt (she is helping my daddy) or email her back and please oh please tell her you can find a place for me. It would make me so happy and you already I can read faces. Also we can drive far if we need to, I love to ride in the car.
My Aunts name is Jewell and her phone number is 818 516 2999 email@example.com
Rosie was RETURNED to the Shelter today....Oct 2, She snapped twice while being pet near her head....we now suspect that she was abused previously...she was brought in with severe fleas...therefore she may have medical issues bothering her terribly...ear infections, bad teeth, skin infections??? Any of these can cause a dog to snap when being touched in the area...praying that someone will get her out and get her feeling well...her rotten former family dropped her off with a note to have her euthanized. This good dog deserves a break!!!!!
This beautiful girl was adopted on Sunday by a loving, caring family. Rosie snapped twice while being petted near her head…the family was just not prepared to deal with this behavior and they returned her to the shelter today, Wed, Oct 2.
They said everything about this dog was lovely other than her snapping twice…those of us involved in rescue deal with this behavior frequently and are prepared to work with the dog or accept the dog unconditionally. More than likely this poor little girl WAS ABUSED and she was merely protecting herself! No reason to be killed…So now we know more about Rosie…PLEASE HELP her find her rightful home…we don’t want to see her euthanized for snapping.

Name: BuddySex: Male, neuteredBreed: Corgi MixAge: approx. 5 yearsLocation: San Jose, CaliforniaBuddy is a very sweet Corgi mix, who lost his sight due to glaucoma. Buddy was found alone and blind wandering the streets of San Jose. When we finally got him help we realized he had been living in constant pain for many years. The decision was made to remove his eyes and give Buddy the gift of living pain-free for the rest of his life. The transformation has been amazing.For the first time Buddy has discovered the joy of playing with squeaky toys and playing tug-of-war with his foster parents. Buddy adores going for walks and loves attention and belly rubs. Because of his blindness Buddy is looking for a home that will understand his need for patience while he learns to navigate through a world which has greatly improved for him but still has many challenges to meet. Buddy would like a home with a small fenced yard and would do best as the only dog or possibly with another small passive dog. If you are interested in meeting this handsome guy or would like more information please contact us at: email@example.com

I am writing to you today in regards to one of our special needs dogs. His name is Eli and I have been fostering him since early November of last year. Unfortunately, I am at risk of losing my housing due to the number of animals I am caring for. Eli is truly a special case as you can read below. My husband is visiting his family in the States next month, and I am deeply hoping your organization would be able to take Eli into its folds. We are well practiced in sending dogs across the border and will incur any charges. We don't think Eli would do well in a kennel but will continue to flourish in a home situation. Please read and feel free to contact me with any questions. I am happy to call and chat if that would be easier. I have also posted some videos of sweet Eli for you to watch. Just click on the YouTube links below.
All dogs are special but wait until you hear Eli’s story. Found in the middle of a Mexican highway, on a hot and humid late October afternoon, he was one of the saddest cases of distress we had ever seen - severely emaciated, arched over, stuck in full body spasms, we thought he might be about to vomit, but he continued this full body twitching for a few moments and then eventually, painfully he worked his convulsing body off the road. As we approached he wanted to run and gave an attempt at a bark but his body wasn’t listening. He didn’t seem to have much time left. His jaw muscles had locked up making it basically impossible to eat. His forehead was indented as his muscles had twitched themselves away. He could not walk or even sit for a few moments without getting pulled into some awkward position by the twitching.
It turns out, that Eli had been fighting Distemper the previous 3 months. His owners had visited the vet a few times, but between lack of money and understanding, Eli was left to deal with his illness on his own. In addition, he was also fighting Erlichia (a local tic borne disease).
By the time we got Eli to the vet and home, it was obvious that this guy was a little warrior. It was his courage, determination and spunk for life that led us through the last 9 months together. He was getting it all - Western and Holistic medicine, special meals and supplements, massages, beach walks, hydrotherapy and tons of love. At first we blended his food so he could eat it through clenched teeth. He received his own closet padded in yoga mats and pillows. With every day you could see signs of repair. His tail that was permanently contracted between his legs, started to relax, point to the sides and then one day we thought we saw a wag. His jaw muscles slowly started to release and today he enjoys normal kibble. Less of him was twitching and the twitches slowed down in frequency. We found these subtle changes amazing and normal dog behavior joyful. To watch him lick or scratch himself, stretch, play softly with our cat or full contact with our lab, it was all miraculous.
To see Eli today, in motion, you would never know anything was or is wrong with him. It is a beautiful thing to watch him run the beach with our pack. But when he is still, you can see the remains of his distemper: his hind right leg continues to twitch 24 hours a day - sometimes mildly sometimes more strongly. Some nights or late afternoons his twitching is reminiscent of the dog we first met, including spasms throughout more of his body, head & jaw. At rest, Eli also tends to whimper or cry. This audible tic is off when he is active, alert or stimulated, and then worse some times of day - without clear pattern or reason. The audible tic flickers on & off as he sleeps. We have some natural and pharmaceutical options to assist him in these more difficult times, but they are not enough and we continue to research remedies for his tics. We have been assured by a few vets that he is not suffering. His cries are another neurologic casualty of the distemper - synapses that are firing off incorrectly due to the high fever and infection he had endured. Regardless of the tics, Eli is very functional, smart and sweet ALL the time. He will jump out of a whimpering moment to chase our lab outside or run out to greet our car. He has not had any seizures or other neurological symptoms or findings. Eli is alive and has lots of living and loving left to do. The time has come for Eli to find a forever home. A home that will understand where he came from, the healing he still needs to go through and the incredibly special dog he is. firstname.lastname@example.org

I was wondering how to go about posting a dog from our rescue on your site? He is an amazing pitty that is deaf and we feel he has been overlooked in our rescue because of his disability. We want nothing more than for him to be adopted into a loving home! He has worked with a trainer that we hired on learning hand commands, and we are in the process of researching the best vibration collar for him.
His name is Pipsqueak and you can see him on our website as well as our Facebook page.Please let us know if you can help - we are located in the SE Pennsylvania area.
Thanks in advance,Melissa Mariner
Hello! My name is Andrew . I was wondering if you had room for a dog, a 6 YO 6 pound black Pomeranian, whose name is Dexter. The dog has what is believed to be epilepsy, he has been having seizures since he was a young dog. The seizures usually occur about every 6 months for a period of like 1 week. The dog is currently in upstate New York, but arrangements could be made to have him shipped or even driven to you (we could foot the bill to have him shipped if you could take good care of him and find him a good home with someone who can do the same). We, my wife and I, are the current owners but do not have the resources to take good care of him, the care he deserves. Lately the seizures have been getting longer and more frequent and we just can't afford to provide the treatment he needs. He is a sweet dog and we do not want to have to put him to sleep, but we can no longer afford to take care of him as we have spent most of what we have on him. If you are interested please let me know. We just want to find a good home for him with someone who can provide him the care he needs to live a happy life. I have attached a photo in case your want to see what he looks like. Also, if you can't take him do you know of someone who would want to take him or some other place to contact. I thank you very much for your time and consideration!ndrew email@example.com
"Anything for love!
With her affectionate nature and wiggling hips, it’s easy to see that Twinkie adores people.
Twinkie is an affectionate dog, who would love to be someone’s devoted friend. She knows how to sit, shake, and down. She is a pleasure to take on walks, and is housebroken and crate trained. All this and she is only three years old!
By now you’re probably wondering how such an amazing girl finds herself looking for a special home. Her foster home was sad to learn that this beautiful girl has hip dysplasia.
Twinkie’s true love, her future family, is out there waiting for her. A family looking for a smart, sweet, affectionate dog with a love of life. A family which understands she isn’t defined by her hip dysplasia, but accept it’s a condition that will require ongoing management.
Cuddles will never be restricted, but Twinkie will require a quieter pace of life. She will enjoy calm, steady walks and being inside with you, keeping you company and warming your feet on cold evenings. Young children may provide a little too much excitement and boisterous play for this girl.
If you go out and buy a puppy you can never be certain of the future. Some dogs do unexpectedly present with hip dysplasia and often owners are broadsided by the news. With Twinkie, you know what to expect. You can be prepared. And whilst the karma points for adopting a special needs dog are huge, Twinkie would like to think that she has a huge amount to offer on her side of the deal. In addition to already being very well trained, Twinkie is vaccinated, spayed, micro-chipped, wormed, and is on heart worm and flea/tick prevention.
Twinkie is waiting to give her heart and soul to whomever adopts her. If you are looking for a devoted companion, please consider giving Twinkie a chance to become your new best friend.
If you are interested in learning more about, meeting, or adopting Twinkie, please email her foster home at:
Twinkie’s adoption fee is $180.
Watch a video of Twinkie here:
Our family recently got a German Shepherd puppy we named Gunner. He is currently a little over 4 months old but has been having on and off issues with seizures. He has been in and out of multiple vet hospitals as well as seen by multiple vets, both conventional and holistic to try and help his problem and no one can seem to find anything wrong with him except to say that he will continue to live with this seizure disorder forever. Due to the time and dedication needed to take care of Gunner my family is running out of options and they cannot handle him and give him the attention he deserves for much longer. One vet actually suggested putting Gunner down and because of the options running out some members of my family were considering that as an option. I myself am a huge pet lover and I just can’t see putting down this beautiful, handsome and sweet puppy just because his medical issues are difficult to handle and admittedly very time consuming.

2 Black Labrador puppies, one boy (Cole) and one girl (Luna) - only 4 months old. They are special need pups, they have something called mega-esophagus (please google this if interested). They eat small meals several times a day to help keep their food down (regurgitation happens every once in a while) and we monitor their water intake. They eat Natures Domain gain-free food from Costco, we just soak it with water overnight...and we give them daily vitamins and calorie booster (both from petsmart).
Besides that...they are very happy, playful and fun little puppies. Very sweet, both love to chill on the couch with me and just give me kisses. The are super smart and pretty much potty trained...very good about their daily schedules. Great walker on the leash/harness, I think its because they love to just follow me everywhere. We would like for them to go to a home together because they play so good together and they LOVE each other so much, but are willing to separate.

URGENT Blue is approximately a 3 year old American bulldog/pit mix who is deaf. He is in urgent need of a new Foster home or permanent home. He has been fully trained in sign language and responds very well. He needs an experienced handler who is willing to continue working with him. Blue is a high energy dog who loves to be around people. He doesn't care to have cats or dominant dogs living in the same house. He has been diagnosed with a partially collapsed trachea but this has not caused any problems since being diagnosed. I have been fostering blue for over one and a half years and have taught him all his basic commands in sign language. He is neutered and microchipped. I will be willing to work with anyone who can place him to continue his training. He has come a long way since I have been working with him and due to unforeseen circumstances I need to find him another Foster or a permanent home as soon as possible. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org for any further questions regarding blue.

I need to surrender my dog Ziggy. The reason that I need to do this is, because he doesn’t seem to be happy here. I live in a 1 bedroom Apt., so there isn’t much space for him. I received him as a Christmas present last year.
He was a rescue dog thru: dachsundlovers.com. They lady that runs this web sight got me Ziggy.
When I got him he was real sick. He had bald spots all over him, and had a bad odor.
The lady that got me the dog felt responsible for this, so she paid for me to take him to the vet. He had a bacterial skin infection, and infections in both ears.
I took him and nursed him back to health. He is doing very well health wise.
He is up to date on his shots, except I can’t afford the one that is due now. He is good at riding in cars, and he is used to a leash.
He not so much other dog friendly, but I don’t know about cats. He seems to have arthritis in his legs and maybe his back. I give him doggy aspirin for his pain. He is allergic to nuts I found that out when he asked for one. I really hope you can help me find a good home with a good size yard where he can play outside and feel free.

Trooper is a young, black lab mix approximately 1 year old on the small side who is very lively and full of energy. He is vetted and HW negative and neutered. Trooper's front paw has limited use due to nerve damages. He has been evaluated by a specialist who has stated he can keep his leg as long as it doesn't get in his way. He seems to carry himself along fine without the use of his front paw, however, he does use it to help him chew on bones and rawhides. He gets along with the other dogs at his foster home, and he loves to cuddle on the couch! He is extremely friendly and would be an ideal pet for someone who could devote loving amount of time just for him. if interested please contact Mari4@optonline.net
We are looking for help with our recently adopted 10-month-old lab-mix. She has fecal incontinence and a neurologist said that it’s likely not curable and implied likely due to tape-worm damage. We have been caring for her since about 6 months old when the adoption agency mislead us to her health – they indicated that she had food sensitivities and some problems with wetting and that keeping her in our home with our other older dog would hopefully help her learn to go outside by following.
Her name is Cassy – and she cannot hold her poop - it became obvious when she sleeps in her crate. As she relaxes, she rolls-over and the poop balls plop out like she’s laying an egg. However, if she eats something outside or her tummy gets off-balance (like from eating some grass outside or a bug or small lizard) she gets diarrhea….bad. Even her diapers won’t hold it and it drips all over our floors. What’s really bad when this happens is that when she sleeps it gets really bad (flows like soft-icecream) and she rolls in it. Our mornings are spent washing her immediately after sleeping at 6AM, giving breakfast, waiting for them to poop outside (she knows to go by schedule but does not appear to really feel it – as she does not squat). And we do this at night for dinner too – dine/poop/wash/diaper. Done. We love her very much but its becoming too much stress on our family. We lost a 7-year old French mastiff to cancer in July and we thought adopting a young pup would help fill the gap but we did not count on all these issues. We have 2 other dogs – a 17 year old dog with his own failing issues, and a 3-year old female mastiff that loves to play with Cassy (she thinks she is her mommy). I welcome a call – we look to your group and some advice on what we could do – how to write an add – I am hopeful there is someone here locally that will meet her and fall in love with her too. She’s a happy dog throughout all of this…and my son loves her (despite her embarrassing poo and the fact that she wears a diaper). I can send picture. Trisha (954) 592-2061
I'm emailing for a friend. She is an older woman who adopted a pug mix. He had spinal surgery which didn't go well and he was left incontinent and without the use of his back legs. I have assisted her with getting him a wheelchair and a drag bag and diapers and a belly band and all were helpful but she I think is just exhausted and not sure is she is able to do it anymore. He got vaccinations on Sat that caused him to seize and he was also found to have a urinary tract infection which is being treated and also now has pneumonia which is being treated. I fear she has reached the end of her rope. He is a wonderful dog and I am of the thinking that there is always a way but I don't know how to help her. She wants to possibly euthanize him but I want to try quickly to find out if there are other options. I would take him but have a greyhound and 2 cats of my own and he needs such specialized care and time that I fear I would be no good to him as well. I hope this gets to you quickly seeing as she may make a decision very soon and I don't know what advice to give or any options she may have. firstname.lastname@example.org
Benny is a 9 month old Pit/Great Dane, though he is on the small side. Benny was rescued from the streets of L.A. and is now in need of a foster or forever home! He is an amazingly sweet boy who loves everyone and is great with other dogs, big and small. Benny is deaf and has a slight limp. We think he was born like that.

May 2012I am a member of Friends of Citrus County Animal Services (FOCCAS) in Inverness, Florida. We take an aggressive approach to getting the "highly adoptable dogs" out of the county shelter (which is a kill shelter) and into a safe environment. As a team we work with the dog to identify any obvious medical or behavior issues, compatibility with other pets (dogs & cats), level of housetraining and attitude.We are approved to pull dogs for bona fide rescue organizations and can assist with transport if needed. All dogs pulled for/by rescue organizations cost $30 (if already spayed/neutered) or $60 if sterilization by our on-staff Vet is needed. The price includes bringing the animal current with all vaccinations (Bordetella, DA2PPv and Rabies), worming, capstar, Heartworm test and Micro chipping. Dogs that need sterilization will be altered prior to release from the shelter.Hello. The above information is to identify ourselves to you. We have in our shelter a beautiful white boxer mix named Marley, who is handicapped by DEAFNESS. He is about 3-4 years old and weighs about 55 pounds. He is housebroken. He likes other dogs and walks very well on a leash. He is quite cooperative and gives no trouble when being walked. He likes children. He is a beautiful-looking dog, in good physical shape except for his deafness. This handicap is not readily apparent to look at him, however. We strongly care about this dog and are seeking a rescue or foster situation for him. He would make an excellent companion for a family, especially one with children. We are willing to pay his adoption fee and will assist in his transport to your rescue or foster situation. I have attached pictures of Marley for you. If you could please help Marley, you may reach me at:JOANNE OLLENBORGERFRIENDS OF CITRUS COUNTY ANIMAL SERVICES (FOCCAS)352-795-1288
APPLICATION AND HOME VISIT REQUIRED. SPECIAL NEEDS- SPAYED AND UP TO DATE ON SHOTS. NY, CT, RI, MA ADOPTIONS ONLY:
Isabella is a black and white 6 month old pit bull. She is crate trained and will use the bathroom outside. She is well behaved and her energy level is fairly low. Isabella is calm and loves to cuddle up in your lap. She craves to be held. She is great with kids of all ages and other dogs. She is interested in playing with cats but doesn’t get aggressive with them.
Isabella's diagnosis is bilateral separation of the femoral head and neck. In a nutshell the ball joints that go into her hips are sitting in the right place but are slightly separated at the neck of the bone. The dr said that she will have arthritis early but her overall prognosis is good. Surgery would not improve her condition and he would not recommend it as he finds it unnecessary.
She's not in pain although sitting "appears" to be a little uncomfortable. She can run and walk and use the bathroom just fine. She can go up stairs but not down easily and she never jumps. Imagine that! A dog that will never jump up on you, your guests, furniture or counters.

My neighbor’s are in the process of moving to Florida; their dog Titan is an elderly dog. When I was speaking with her about if they were taking Titan with them she said that due to his age and ailment she did not think he’d be able to make the trip so they’d decided to put him down. I told her to wait and see what I could do.
The ailment that Titan suffers from is whenever he gets excited he has a seizure, passes out and is okay in about 15-30 minutes. Other than that, he’s fine.
He’s an outdoor dog, but I’m sure due to his age he’d be fine laying at your feet indoors.
Yes, he is house trained.
We are contacting you with the hopes that you can help us with an unfortunate situation that has arisen with our dog Guinness. We currently care for three former shelter dogs, one of them, Guinness, a seven year old neutered black lab mix that we adopted from a shelter in 2005 at the age of seven months. He is a wonderful, friendly, and energetic dog who loves to be around people, children, and other animals. Sadly, he suffers from skin allergies and approximately six months ago also ruptured a disc in his back which, despite surgery and physical therapy, has left his hind legs mostly paralyzed and has rendered him semi-incontinent. He currently uses a cart to get around and has taken to it quite well. Throughout all of this, he has remained the same happy go lucky companion with a big heart and positive spirit, helping all of us through these difficulties.
Although it breaks our hearts to have to do so, we need to find Guinness a new permanent or temporary home because we will be unable to properly care for him after we move this summer. We are an active duty Air Force family that is being stationed in South Korea, where they have inadequate veterinary facilities to give Guinness the medical care that he deserves. Furthermore, we will have to live in an apartment building without a yard that will further hinder us from giving Guinness the exercise he needs for rehabilitation and further acclimation to his cart.
We therefore need to find Guinness a new forever home or a temporary guardian to care for him while we’re overseas (about 2 ½ years). In a temporary living situation we would be more than willing to pay for medical and rehabilitation expenses while we are away and would retake custody of him when we return. If you are able to help us find a loving home or guardian for Guinness, we can provide you with more detailed information regarding his medical history and care requirements.
Though it breaks our heart, we simply will not have the ability to care for Guinness while stationed overseas. We have no choice in the decision to move to South Korea, and do not have any immediate friends or family both willing and able to take him in. Guinness requires more loving care than most animals, but we can promise that the love he gives in return has made our time with him for the last seven years well worth it. Please let us know if you can help us. You can reach us at 334-649-2034 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Sincerely, Lauren and Jay Mahajan
Dylan is 10 year old purebred Cocker Spaniel with the nicest personality and easy-going temperament. He is special needs because he is blind and has hearing loss, but he has managed to adjust to his new situation quickly and is a happy and affectionate dog who is a sweet and fun companion. Dylan gets along great with other animals, given a proper introduction. He is currently in a foster home with 2 large dogs, a chihuahua, and a cat and he is great with all of them. Dylan is mellow and completely cooperative when being lead by his collar, picked up, bathed, and even when having his ears cleaned (if you know cocker spaniels, you know those ears!). Dylan is crate-trained (although he doesn't love his crate- probably because he has to spend so many hours a day in it!) and almost housebroken (he will have accidents if not taken out right away after a long sleep-normal senior stuff!). Dylan loves a comfy bed and loves to push and pull his blankets and pillow until they are just right! However, Dylan will ignore the comfiest of beds if it means he is relaxing by YOU and has a chance of getting his head scratched and some affection! After getting attention and a good nap, Dylan enjoys taking walks and eating!! Due to his easy-going personality, Dylan would do well in most households but may enjoy a stable home with a patient owner to help him out while he adjusts to his new surroundings. Dylan was brought into the shelter as a stray and was in terrible condition. He has since been cleaned up, groomed, and has been enjoying a stay in foster care instead of the high-stress shelter, but deserves a home of his own where he can be a true family member. He will make his new family very happy in return! If you believe that you can give Dylan the second chance he deserves, please contact his current foster mom at CCSPCA_Foster@yahoo.com or submit our online adoption application (http://members.petfinder.com/~NJ44/FORMS/APPLICATION_ADOPT.html).

Hello. My name is Debra Clark and I am the Shelter Manager at the Humane Society of Camden County in Kingsland, Georgia. We are located on I-95 just before you cross the state of Florida. We have in our shelter what we believe to be an Australian Shepherd that is deaf and partially blind. He is an intact male approximately three to four months old. You will find two pictures attached to this e-mail. We have done an inital exam on "Chase" as we have named him. He weighs 10.4 pounds.At our shelter we do not test for heartworms under six months of age, so Chase has been started on heartworm prevention, but not tested. He was found to have hookworms and coccidia and has been treated for both of those intestinal parasites. He was also covered in fleas and has had Advantage II administered. He was given Droncit for tapeworms, Strongid-T and Punazuril for the coccidia,. He has also received two sets of vaccines for distemper and parvo ( we administer Durammune Max 5 fro Boehinger Ingleheim) and an intranasal and an injectible vaccine for bordetella. The two sets were given three weeks apart. For bordetella we administer Bronchi-shield II from BI and Bordetella Bronchiseptica for the injectible. If you have room in your rescue, we would appreciate it if you coul take this little fellow. He is a good player with toys, but we do not have anyone that has had experience with deaf dogs in this area. If you can help or place us in contact with someone who can help, please contact us at this e-mail, our shelter number 12-729-7141 between 12-5 Monday thru Sat, or my personal cell phone up until 8:00 in the evening 912-552-8959.Thank you for your time. email@example.com
New Jersey - Chilli, a 6 year neutered male Cockapoo who is newly diabetic and is in desperate need of a home instead of euthanasia. He is utd on vaccines until 6/2012 but does need a heartworm test. Very sweet little boy. Loves belly rubs!!! Crate trained, house broken, loves his toys. Good with other dogs. Unsure of cats, but could be tested.
Owners, have had Chilli since he was a pup. They do not want to learn how to do insulin shots (which are easy) and brought Chilli to the vets to be euthansized. Owners are keeping him crated from 6:00 am - 9:00 pm everyday.
Two wonderful vet techs have agreed to do the shots to buy Chilli some time until hopefully we can find a rescue or new family for this sweet boy. Time is limited. We only have a week or two at the most, then owners will euthansize.
Insulin would cost about $30/month and can be purchased from Wal-Mart.
If you can provide rescue or a home for sweet Chilli please contact Jen firstname.lastname@example.org
I am a member of Friends of Citrus County Animal Services (FOCCAS) in Inverness, Florida, a kill shelter. As a team we work with the dogs to identify any obvious medical or behavior issues, compatibility with other pets (dogs & cats), level of housetraining and attitude.All dogs pulled for/by rescue organizations cost $30 (if already spayed/neutered) or $60 if sterilization by our on-staff Vet is needed. The price includes bringing the animal current with all vaccinations (Bordetella, DA2PPv and Rabies), worming, capstar, Heartworm test and Micro chipping. Dogs that need sterilization will be altered prior to release from the shelter.At the present time we have in our shelter a dog named Okemo, who is a 4-year-old bulldog mix. He is neutered and up to date on all of his shots. He came to the shelter in December and has become a shelter favorite. Unfortunately, he has vision loss, most likely seeing only shadows and light. This diagnosis was made by an eye clinic for animals. Okemo is a handsome boy who loves to be around humans and gives lots of kisses. He is one of the sweetest, happiest dogs that you could ever meet. He uses hearing and smell to get around and he seems to get around very well, with his tail wagging constantly.We are searching for a rescue that would be able to take Okemo as a rescue from our shelter. We are willing to assist in his rescue fee and also in his transport to your facility or foster homes. We have attached photos of Okemo. He is a very sweet and loving boy and we are hoping he will find a second chance at a good life with you. Thank you very much.

Trooper is around a year old. He has been with our rescue in Natchitoches, LA for quite some time. He was found near an oil and gas drill site in Louisiana. When found, he was 20 pounds under-weight, malnourished, and according to x-rays, neither of the two balls of his femur are in place, causing hip dysplasia. He would get great exercise if he was allowed to swim and or be taken on walks frequently. He is so sweet and just needs some TLC.If interested, please e-mail email@example.com.
Sadie came into our care a month ago from a wonderful couple who found her as a stray. They cared for her as long as they could and even got her spayed. They live by such a busy road they were afraid she would get hit. That's when we took her under our wings and we're so glad that we've gotten to know this sweet dog. Her one little quirk is that she hops on the 3 of her 4 legs, trying not to place weight on her one back one. We were told it was an old injury. We wanted to see what was really going on with her back foot. We took her to the great team at the NSU Vet tech department and they X-rayed her back hock. (heel). We found out that her little quirk is a bullett. Somehow, she's been shot. Her bones are shattered so bad that there is nothing that can be done. An injury that she will live with for a lifetime. She doesn't seem to be in pain and she runs and plays with the best of them. She tires out a little faster though. She is housebroken, great with kids and is good with other dogs. She is an angel and so loving with everyone. If you are willing to foster this sweet girl or if you know of a good home she can call her own, please let us know. She just needs a soft pillow to sleep on. For more information on Sadie, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We're writing in regards to our 6 month-old GoldenDoodle, Tiernan. We adopted him from a breeder in Rhode Island in November of 2011 and by February of 2012 when he still didn't seem to understand potty training, we decided to get blood work and a urinalysis done to help find some answers. Unfortunately, on February 10th, 2012 Tiernan was diagnosed with Congenital Kidney Disease; symptoms include: inability to hold his bladder in excess of 3 hours, excessive thrist, boughts of lethargy and an inconsistent appetite.
While we would LOVE to keep Tiernan and care for him ourselves, we live on the 10th floor of an apartment building and work full-time, so it's impossible for us to care for him the way he needs. Tiernan's veterinarians have explained that some dogs with similar cases have lived full lives, others have passed away at an early age. In order to gain a specific prognosis, we would need to get additional testing done (more blood work, ultrasound, biopsy, etc...) that would cost in excess of $1,000. We have already spent close to double that trying to determine his diganosis and cannot currently afford to move forward to the next steps...
We will continue to care for him until we find him the perfect home/shelter but it is in his best interest for this to happen as soon as possible.
In addition, we have chosen to adopt a new puppy who is due to come home on Friday March 16th. We were not anticipating Tiernan still being in our care but recently, a couple of potential homes have fallen through, so we need your help!!!
Tiernan is a love bug who loves to play! He’s great with people of all ages and dogs of all sizes. He loves turkey pepperoni, ice cubes, leaves, tennis balls and stuffingless squeaky animal toys. For the most part, he’s very quiet and will not bark unless it’s warranted. We’ve done our best to teach him “sit,” “down,” “stay,” “come,” and “shhh” (when he gets too rowdy)…he learns very quickly and he’s still young, so teaching new behaviors would be no problem! He's the perfect companion, and our goal is to find him a partner who can cater to his needs better than we're able to...Thank you so much in advance, Caroline & Mike Scarborough
The first good turn of events for this boy was being dumped in a shelter by a woman who recently got married and her new husband didnt want Sampson but we did. Sampson came from a kill shelter in Charleston, SC and wasnt even given the chance to be noticed. The shelter felt he was unadoptable because of his blindness from cataracts and some hearing loss. The second change of luck came when he was saved by our group and his joy of life shows in the pictures. He wants to be near you all the time and would make a great companion for someone who will love him back. He is 8 years old, neutered, good with people and other dogs and appears to be housetrained. Sampson will need a special person in his life to give him what he has been missing for 8 years and you will be rewarded beyond belief. For those who are interested, please contact Vicky at 973-772-8348 after 6 p.m. or e-mail at email@example.com
I am in Middletown, NY. Have not yet found a foster or adopter. "Finn" is very sweet, very playful, smart(knows signs), loving...boundless energy which is why I need to get placement for him. I have no problem with his deafness or giving phenobarbital 2x daily. I just do not have a yard big enough for him and am exhausted from long walks with him.
It is taking it's toll on my senior dog and me. I work an eight hour day and cannot give both dogs what they need. Finn will be sheltered very soon if a foster is not found. I am afraid he will regress when that happens and then be destroyed. If you need more info please call me 845-239-4844. I have spent alot of time on the computer trying to network and work from 1-9pm tonight. I will stop home mid-shift to feed him and let him outside. My calls will be forwarded to my cell. Calls take alot less time given all of the outreach I am doing. Thank you, Evelyn Canata mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]

My name is Ashley and I am the rescue corordinator at the Frances R Willis SPCA in Summerville, SC. We have a deaf american bulldog mix here named Wyatt. Wyatt is a wonderful, loving teddy bear. He is approx. 1 y old, heartworm negative, neutered, and current on all vaccines and preventions. He is very very smart and has learned many hand signals, including sit, stay, lay and come. He also gives kisses when asked to and knows his name. Because of Wyatts disablility, it has been very difficult to place him in the right home. Not alot of people understand him and his uniquness. Unfortunatley, when an employee spooked him, he bit. It was the only time he has ever done that. There were no severe injuries. I am writing you in hope that you may be able to help our poor Wyatt. He truly is an amazing dog, who has been though so much and still loves with a gentle heart. I have personaly worked with him everyday of his stay here. He is completely house trained. He loves toy ropes. He plays with other dogs like a puppy. He isnt camera shy, and his picture resides on the front of my personal cell phone. I understand him, teaching him everyday. He is very treat motivated, (he loves soft treats.) He is about 50lbs of pluffy love. He has beautiful deep bown eyes and a heart-shaped nose. Please contact me back right away. He is stressed here and needs to be in a place where people can understand his disability and help place him with the right family.

Sybil was rescued from a North Carolina shelter in a deplorable physical condition. She had been seen living outside for weeks until finally someone called ANimal Control.
In spite of frequent bathing with anti seborrhea shampoo her coat remained oily and actually came off in patchy fleece. She had red irritated paws and tail, and would scratch and chew. Treatment for mange did not help. She also was heartworm positive and treated with Ivemectin (slow kill method). Once he received thyroid replacement tablets however, her coat began to dry out and the itching and skin irritation subsided. As long as she receives her daily thyroid pill she is a happy little dog, growing a rough terrier coat - like a Westie/Bichon "designer" breed. She loves other dogs but will retreat quickly when approached fast and hide. She needs ongoing medical care for hypothyroidism (inexpensive thyroid replacement prescribed by a veterinarian), and monthly oral ivermectin for another 6 months before retesting.
Beautiful, Tiny Red Chow mix. 20-25lb, FRIENDLY and soooo sweet!!...about 5-6yr. Healthy, but born with neurological condition which makes her eyes go in different directions and sometimes twitch. Sometimes her head tilts and bobs slightly…will not progress or get better. Diagnosed as Cerebellar hypoplasia by Neuro specialist at Virginia Tech Vet Hosp. Her condition doesn’t limit her at all. She would make a great family pet. Currently living in an outdoor kennel due to lack of foster homes…need to find a forever home before winter!! She is house trained and had a good home until this summer when her owner became ill. She never met a stranger, very people friendly, walks well on a leash. The chart behind her shows she is barely 18inches high. Located in Virginia. She was owner surrender at the shelter, now in foster care.

Neptune is about a year old, deaf, and (mostly) blind dog, but he does have limited vision in his left
eye. He gets around his foster home quite easily, only occasionally bumping into something or
someone. He can manipulate stairs very well.
He loves going for walks, and enjoys playing with other dogs. He loves food, and is extremely gentle when taking a treat. Neptune is very calm, and is good in the car, but he does need some practice getting in and out.
He is crate trained, is up to date with all vaccines, and is neutered. Neptune is calm and sweet, and will make
someone a constant companion.

I rescued an Akita about 3 months ago. This poor girl has been through so much. She was loved by someone and some time. After 3 weeks of earning her trust, she let me rescue her. I found out she has Pemphigus but she is doing great with her progress. She also has muscle weakness in her back legs and stumbles frequently. She is a sheep in wolf's clothing. She doesn't get along with other dogs or cats. I have 6 rescues myself and 4 are special needs. Otherwise she would be mine. Unfortunately, she stays in my garage due to her not liking other pets. She has had it rough and I am glad she doesn't realize it. One rescue wanted to help euthanize her due to her Pemphigus. Another rescue stopped calling me regarding her. I did have a foster family for her and they recently decided they were to busy. She is good with kids of any age, loves short walks, sleeping, a few pats on the head, hugs, kisses and her treats. She has a sweet, calm temperment, even the vet is amazed how sweet and well mannered she is.
I need help! I hate the fact she is stuck in my garage. I hate the fact I can't give her the full attention she deserves. She needs a proper home and any assistant regarding her she needs.
Thank You Nikki email@example.com
Flower is deaf. She is a year old, spayed, UTD on vax, HW neg and on prevention, dog and cat social, great with a 9 year old special needs kid, not quite house-broken, crate trained though doesn't like it much, and likes to lick your feet. I've been training her to hand signals and she knows "sit" pretty reliably. My biggest issue with her is that she's *loud barky* in her crate, in tie downs, or when she can't see you. I cannot handle the barking . It's better than it was, it's better after exercise, or when she has a chew/stuffed bone/delicious time consuming treat, and better when you stick *rigidly to a schedule, but it's an issue. I thought she'd be a great candidate for a prison program or Pets to Vets, but none of these avenues have panned out. The pit rescue groups I've contacted are full, if they bother to get back to us at all. I can't keep her indefinitely and we're running out of options. If you can help at all, we'd be eternally grateful. If you don't have any good ideas, I understand totally. Lissa firstname.lastname@example.org
I have a sweet old girl that I need to find a home. She is in her mid teens, heartworm negative, house trained and up to date on vaccines. She has some health issues though. She has Congestive Heart Failure, arthritis, chronic cough,renal failure and bad teeth. Miss Lilly takes Lasix and cough medicine daily and is on a special diet. Inspite of all of this, she is sweet natured. She weighs about 25 lbs. I know it's a long shot that someone would take on such a responsibility but it doesn't hurt to ask. There are pictures of her on my facebook page. She was left abandoned at an unmanned fire station. She had no food, water or shelter. She had chewed herself raw from fleas. Her fur has grown back and she has a beautiful coat. I would love for her to go to a home where she can be spoiled rotten the rest of her life. Please pass this info and picture about Lilly to anyone that might be able to help. Have them contact me at: Angeldogacres@gmail.com thanks!~

From Emmy Lou:
My mom just passed away. I have been paralyized in my back legs all my life. I have a set of wheels that I use or I can move very quickley by pulling myself around. I am very lovable and need a new loving home that can accomodate my needs.
I'm a Dachshund, Miniature Long Haired/Mix and I'm 9 Years Old, Small Black Female and I need out of the Shelter! Can anyone help Me?
Please crosspost this to get this dog out of the shelter!
From: Crystal Tweeten <email@example.com>
Subject: RE: Emmy Lou - paralyzed female dog
This pet also is eligible for 30 days of pre-paid pet health insurance.
Emmy Lou is such a sweet girl. She is small and weights 14.4 lbs. She has been paralyzed since birth but you would never know it. She can get herself from one end of the room to the other in no time flat and that is without her back wheels. She does not seem to like her wheels and we are trying to fit them a little better for her (they are homemade). She loves to be held like a little kid and loves, love , loves to hang on to you while you do your work. Her human mother just passed away that is how she came to us. She is probably at least 9 -or 10 but you would never know it. She is so alive and just acts like nothing in the world could ever stop her. She does get cold easy and we have a nice blanky and heating pad for her to sleep on in our lobby during the day. Unfortunately she has to go into her cold kennel with her blankys at night. She likes soft food and does not seem to have any difficulties as far as her bowel movements. She can poop regularly but urinating gets her all messy. We bath her back end everyday. I understand she has worn diapers in the past and I just got some yesterday so we will try them on. Also she wiggled out of them when she did wear them. I just know she would be the love of someone's life. I hate to see her in our kennels. If you could help that would be so great.
Titan is an energetic, loving, and courageous young pitbull mix. He makes friends with everyone he comes across and absolutely LOVES to be outside smelling the fresh air!! He came to our shelter in the worst of condition. He was emaciated, covered in scabs, and too weak to walk. Over the course of the next month he gained weight, his skin improved and he became bright and very very happy!! He behaves well with other animals and loves to play with toys! He is so vibrant and has so much love to give! After a short time with us, we noticed that Titan dripped urine while he walked and had trouble controlling when he went to the bathroom. We also noticed that despite his happiness—his tail was always hanging limp. We found out that he has a tail avulsion fracture which has damaged the nerves that control his urination and defecation.
Due to this injury, Titan can only be an outdoor dog (or it is a possibility that he wears diapers --although we haven't tried that yet!). He will require daily cleanings as his rump gets a little messy at times. He is oblivious to his injury – and could care less! He just wants to run and play!
Titan is located in Charlottesville, Virginia. If you have a special home and a special heart that you could open up to Titan please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
I got Jasmin when she was about 6 months old. She's a mix of Lab & Pitt. I found her in a backyard where there were 6 other dogs chained to trees with no food and little water. Jasmin was in a very small kennel that had a dog house in the corner. With the dog house there was only about 3 to 4 feet for them to move around. She shared this area with 3 of her sister's and a Brother. All 5 of them lived in this tiny space since the moment they could be separated from their mother (the mom got chained back up). They slept, ate, and used the bathroom in this space. When I found Jasmin she was horribly torn up. Her 3 sister's were aggressive and would attack Jasmin and her brother continuously. Jasmin's ear were cut open from dog bites and and she had scars all over her body and she was extremely thin. When i first got her home she peed all over the floor from being so scared and she hid in the corner for days and wouldn't eat. She's come a long way and has a great personality but she'll never be a "normal" dog. About 1
year ago i was in an abusive relationship for 4 years. He was abusive to me and Jasmin. He would torment her by chasing her and throwing things at her and he would even punch her in the legs and torso. She was so scared one time she jumped though the screen door and ran into the street and got hit by a car. Now she doesn't have a tail and she's missing a bottom K9 tooth. Since then I've been working with her to get her trust back but i don't think she will ever change. She's so lovable once you gain her trust, but she wont let you come to her she has to come to you. She has NEVER ever even came close to biting someone but she does bark a lot and acts very scared. Once she's around you long enough she will come up to you and put her head in your hand. She does like to play but she would prefer to lay on the floor all day long. She gets along great with other dogs and enjoys
going to the dog park and does well in the car. I love her so much but i can no longer keep her. She's great with small kids, have a 5 year old and a 3 year old. My kids are both boys so they are really rough with her and she doesn't ever get aggressive with them. She's learned to deal with the loudness and roughness of the kids but she would rather be left alone. She does have a MAJOR problem with running away! She can not wear a regular collar with a leash she must wear a harness. She will escape out of the collar if she position's herself the right way so she must wear a harness. She has escaped from a fenced backyard numerous times, she famous for finding holes in the fence or just making them herself. She is on an invisible fence now for a year and she has done a wonderful job, no escapes since installation, but without the collar if a child opens the door
she's gone. She will not come back and you can not catch her, the only way is to get a few people and figure out how to corner her. Once you gain her trust she's a great dog. She doesn't do much but lay around but she just needs someone with a soft voice to love her and shower her with affection. Please help Jasmin. I don't know what else I can do, the landlord wants me to get rid of her and I've begged him but he wont budge and I looked for another place to live so i could keep her but i cant find anything cheap and that will accept her. My landlord understands what kind of dog she is (i don't know if he knows to the full extent though) and he said he understood it would take time to place her in a home but that doesn't mean he wont be pushing me on the date. if i bring her to the pound she wont be adopted because of her scary looking temperament in the beginning. No one would know the lover she is deep down inside, and she cant go to just any one she has to go to some one that's soft hearted and soft spoken, she needs nothing but love and affection she DOES NOT handle discipline she will freak out. I'm afraid if i cant find her a home i will have to put her down. That makes me so sad but i would rather her go to sleep peacefully then be locked up in a cage and placed with anyone or just spend a few months in a cage and then be put down anyways. Either one will break my heart but id rather she be at peace then in another bad situation or roaming the streets hungry. She's just very timid and scared all the time, she's high anxiety and shakes when scared and she's 5 years old so i don't see her changing anytime soon. She is a great dog though, she completely potty trained, she's gentle, in no way even close to being aggressive (no use as a guard dog). She doesn't chew anything, she doesn't steal food, you can leave a plate of bacon on the floor and she wont touch it without the OK, she wont even take a treat from your hand or eat when your in the room. She's the most lovable, sweetest dog and she needs the absolute same in her owner.

Sampson is an approx. 8 year old completely blind Pit Bull in need of a rescue home. He was found tied to a three foot logging chain, no food, or water. He shows no sign of abuse, just neglect. He has been taken to a local vet, where he was neutered and given all his shots. He loves people and shows no sign of aggression towards anyone. He is very cautious around other animals(mostly likely out of fear because of the blindness). Sampson can not continue to stay at the kennels of the vet. Please help this great dog find a good home. You can reach me at 276-525-5043, or e-mail me at Houndhavenrescue@comcast.net. If Any one can help or knows of any one who can help please contact me. Sampson has two strikes against him, being a pit bull and blindness, but I can not bear the thought of this wonderful dog being put down because he wasn't given a chance. Thank you so much for your time.
My mother found Buster when he was approximately 5 weeks old on the side of a fairly untraveled road in a deep dish filled with mud and leave...He was extremely filthy, covered in dog poop and mud, he had just had his tail docked and it was still oozing and bleeding...I took him in and nursed him back to health, you could see bones when he was brought to me so I fed him bitches milk and wet puppy food...approximately 3 weeks later we took him to our vet when he told us that Buster was about 8 weeks old! But I cant take care of him anymore due to the fact that I just had a baby in May and with Buster having a hearing deficiency it makes trying to train him very difficult alongside an infant! We took him to our local animal shelter and they told us that because of that deficiency that he would be euthanized and he is a good dog I just cant take care of him and my son but even with that being said I am not going to willing give him up knowing that he will be put down! I will not sign his death warrant! If you have any information on somewhere safe for him to go please let me know as soon as possible! We are located in Knoxville, TN if that will help you help me!
