Bailey had her first Mister Softee experience yesterday. What a gal.
I officially brought home this gal today. She is the biggest sweetheart. She is a Doberman/lab mix, and is about 13 years old. I adopted her because her owner of 13 years no longer wanted her, and if no one came forward, he would have her euthanized. Up until today I had never been face to face with someone that I really hate. But then I met her owner, and I have never felt so irate. It took every ounce of self control in my body to keep myself from punching this guy in the face.
Today, as Bailey fell asleep on her warm bed, I watched her, and I knew that her previous owner never loved her. He never had that special connection with her. He gave her away like she meant nothing to him. But here she was, opening her heart to me, she is so forgiving. I cannot wait to love her more than her previous owner could have dreamed of. I can’t wait to go to the beach with her, and give her so many cookies, and maybe even a steak or two. Or ten. Even though my future with her will more than likely be short, I’m still so honored to be spending it with her. What a special girl.
I adopted this lovely girly today!
This is Nigel. I found him on petfinder and he’s breaking my heart: http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/28710005
If I was in the area I would pull this guy in an instant. I know Johnson City is generally not a safe place for pit bulls and I doubt their animal control has the resources to clear up his skin. Please share and maybe we can find Nigel a foster or home!

Just took in these perfect little bully angels. They’re approximately 4 weeks old. They were involved in an awful breeding situation in Mastic, NY. I ended up purchasing these two for 200 dollars each. There is 7 others that I couldn’t take, and a mama dog who is SEVERELY emaciated. Currently working for the rescue of the mother dog and the rest of the litter! They had their first vet visit today, and besides being a little on the small side, they’re perfect. I will keep you all updated.
They will be ready for adoption in a few weeks. And donations of wee-wee pads and puppy food would be greatly appreciated.
The 3 pit bulls that came in together at the Brooklyn AC&C are safe!
(Baby, Princess, And Big Vizel)
Whenever it is bitter cold/snowy outside, all I can think about is all of the animals who don’t have homes, or are left outside by their owners without proper housing. If you see someone neglecting their dogs/cats/livestock/etc please act upon it! It is a matter of life and death.
Anyways, please stay warm (if you live in the NE of the US.) It’s going to be a cold and snowy one for sure!

Ruff ruff, my name is Gary, my animal ID number is 21729709. Gary is here to entertain you! This medium sized boy is as playful as they come! Gary loves balls; chasing them, carrying them around in his mouth, fetching them after a volunteer throws them for him. And he does a bunny hop prance as he plays, which makes him even more endearing. Gary also loves to be pet, and will lean his big old head into you for scratches. He really enjoys the company of people, especially those that share his enthusiasm for playing! Does this silly boy sound like just the kind of dog you need in your life? Then stop into the shelter today to meet Gary!
This is just one of the many wonderful dogs in urgent need of adoption, foster care, or rescue at Philadelphia’s animal control shelter, ACCT. You can stop down and meet them, and after filling out an application with shelter staff, interact with them 365 days a year at the shelter- 111 W. Hunting Park Avenue in Philadelphia. Please check www.acctphilly.org for hours.
