HOW do you GIVE up your baby? Poor Buddy barely left and frightened at kill shelter

HOW do you GIVE up your baby? Poor Buddy barely left and is already back due to his owner having "problems". Maybe they forgot to check with their significant other or maybe the landlord. Either way, little Buddy is the one being punished.







The shelter is no place for babies EVER. Come scoop up this precious baby and give him the love and care he deserved the first time he was adopted. Looking for kisses, toys and of course training on how to be a good little puppy. They just aren't born house-broken!

Bonded neglected-looking seniors were dumped because they are old and the couple wanted a younger dog

My hands are shaking as I bring to your attention best buddies 12-year-old JASMINE (A1751690) and 10-year-old SARABE (A1751691). Both rather neglected-looking dogs were dumped yesterday at the East Valley shelter because they are old and the couple wanted a younger dog.

Sure enough, the [in]humane couple showed up this a.m. and bid on and won a puppy that they didn't even meet. And, get this, they named the puppy Jasmine. What a pity for the puppy.

Please come and rescue/adopt this bonded pair. The shelter is at 14409 Vanowen St., Van Nuys, CA.







Please NOTE: When I posted this story, I had no idea it would garner the comments and shares that it has received. Your passion to see justice done to people who abuse/neglect innocent animals is understood. However, taking your frustrations out on the people who work in the shelters is misplaced.

Unfortunately, there are few, if any, laws enacted to protect our pets, and many people still consider them to be possessions to be disposed of on a whim.
Shelter employees have policies and protocols that they are required to follow, which include they cannot turn anyone away when a pet is being surrendered, and they cannot discriminate as to who can adopt a pet. It's a sad reality, and trust me, staff is often as traumatized as any of us when they have to deal with situations, such as the one presented yesterday. As a volunteer who goes to the shelter almost daily and witnesses some of the pets being surrendered, I, too, have to restrain myself or I may end up going to jail. At least I can't be arrested for my wishful thinking of what should happen to the irresponsible pet owners.

So, pleeeeease stop criticizing the shelter employees for doing what they are required to do. The next time there is a mayoral election, search for someone to run who is forward-thinking and is willing and able to bring changes to the shelters, and who cares about the well-being of the animals.

Thank you for reading this and for understanding that the most important thing is to get these two dogs, and so many others, in to safe and loving homes.

This is your call to action! approximately 30 dogs hoarding dogs need you!

Late yesterday, approximately 30 dogs from one house were rescued as part of a hoarding investigation. We cannot release the pictures of the horrid conditions these innocent dogs were kept in, but it wasn't pretty. The investigation is continuing, but with the city's cooperation, we are pulling at least 1/3 of them, one that is undergoing care at our ER Vet, and at least one that is pregnant.







THIS IS YOUR CALL TO ACTION!! They are all Chihuahuas, or Chihuahua mixes! So they are small, and right now, they are all scared and petrified. Sadly, they have been used to being kept in crates, so this indeed is their first day of freedom and need loving homes to help them know they are loved.

WE NEED HOMES to place these dogs in... and ASAP! We are working on intaking and vaccinating them as we speak. We will provide supplies as needed, but right now... we need HOMES.

Please visit our website and fill out a foster application, or please email us with questions. We have folks dedicated to work these applications today!
