UPDATE: Wonderful news! Decaf went to rescue 9/29/11! Thanks to everyone who shared for her.
I feel that most of my articles lately have been about urgent animals whose lives are in jeopardy of being taken for lack of shelter space.
If I sound like a broken record, I’m sorry about that. However, I can’t let that stop me from putting out a plea that may reach someone who can help them.
Eleventh-hour pleas are the last chance these animals have of being saved, and I can’t stop trying until all hope of saving them is gone.
Today I found out that Decaf is in this situation and that her time is almost up.
Decaf (A13947854) is a 6-month-old Lab/Beagle mix, with a beautiful black and white coat. She was brought to the shelter as a stray, when she was found searching for food because she was starving.
Lucky for her, someone brought her to the shelter where she was given food, but now that the shelter is overcrowded, she is being labeled extremely urgent.
She is very sweet and affectionate, and very submissive to people. She has passed all her advanced handling and food aggression tests, and behaviorally tested well with both dogs and cats.
But while at the shelter she was bitten by another dog, so now she is initially nervous around a lot of dogs until she is comfortable that they are nice and not planning to hurt her. Then she becomes very friendly.
She’s just a puppy, and she’s understandably very scared at the shelter, and trembles with fear all the time. But now she is also quickly running out of time.
If you can rescue this girl from the terrible situation she is in by fostering or adopting her, or know someone else who can, please hurry! Bring your family and any dogs living in the home to meet her today. Tomorrow may be too late.
She has her whole life ahead of her, please someone give her the chance to live it.
She is located at ACCT, 111 W Hunting Park Ave. in Philadelphia. Their adoption hours are M-F 1pm – 5pm, S-S 10 am – 5pm.
