CHICAGO, Illinois – The Pet Pardons organization released an urgent bulletin Friday asking the public for their help in finding a home for an 18-month-old male Chihuahua named Yaya who was found completely blind and wandering the streets and waits to be adopted at the Chicago ACC.
Yaya has absolutely no way of telling anyone how he managed to wind up on the streets, or anything about how he lost his eyesight. However, Yaya has not lost his sense of sound, and being in a shelter where a lot of much bigger dogs are barking and whining is literally terrifying him beyond belief. Yaya is desperate for a loving family or individual to come along and give him the extra special attention and love that he needs and take him away from the shelter that is making him scared and frightened.
Members of the Pet Pardons community are given daily Facebook bulletins and updates, allowing them to share the stories of pets in need or even take direct action to adopt or donate money to save the life of the pet. The reasons for how these animals end up in shelters are as numerous as the reasons why there are so many dedicated volunteers working hard every day to save innocent lives.
The Pet Pardons Facebook application has been responsible for the successful adoption of over 5,000 pets since its launch in December of 2010 and has amassed over 180,000 followers on Facebook who are ready to help advocate for an animal in need at a moment’s notice.
Pet Pardons allows its members to help pets by clicking the “Advocate” button on each pet’s profile, which places the pet’s bulletin on the user’s wall, allowing others to see the pet and advocate for it. As the number of shares increases, so do the chances of the pet being viewed by someone who can help or adopt.
Yaya does have special needs, but as any owner with a special needs dog will tell you the love and devotion you receive back from adopting a dog like Yaya is unconditional and strong. Without being able to tell you, special needs dogs will show you every day that they understand you saved them and how much they appreciate it. It may take a little extra effort to help them live with dignity, but special needs dogs bring a fulfillment and richness to any household that cannot be explained.
Pet Pardons educates the public about pet overpopulation, focusing on the importance of adoption and spay/neuter. By shining a light on the reality for shelter pets, people are becoming aware of the problem, and therefore, getting involved in the solution. As each amazing pet is featured, users are able to see their faces, connect with their stories, and advocate to save their lives.
Pet and animal advocacy can sometimes be a very emotional process. Volunteers place animals into the Pet Pardons application in hopes that they will be adopted into loving homes, not so that the shelters will be targeted and harassed. Please help the pets by not engaging in this type of behavior, as it hurts them far more than it helps them.
Yaya currently has 11 advocates on the Pet Pardons application, and could use a lot more, especially those who would be willing to supply transportation to a new forever home if needed.
