Bentley needs a home before it's too late!
Help us find a foster home for Bentley please. He is a boxer.. we collected the funds to cover his HW treatment but now he needs someplace quiet to recuperate. He is a boxer. Of course a forever home will be best! Please forward to your contacts . Working together we can make a difference in the lives of these dogs... The HS is the first stop but a cage , a kind word and a bowl of food is just the first step in the right direction. Help us turn their luck around. Be a hero for a well mannered gem who doesn't need potty training.
Contact Dellia at Lucky Paws Foundation: 513- 1854 if you can help or know someone who can!
He is a handsome fellow and will make someone a wonderful companion.
He only has 1 week left and we all know what that means!:-(
Wish I knew how to post his picture! He is adorable!
Not sure when pic was taken but heart worm disease, neglect and abuse can take its toll on all animals. He is now being fed regularly at the shelter but probably he won't start gaining weight until heart worm is treated and he's recovered. Unfortunately, HSTTT is not a quiet environment to recover, hence the need for foster homes (hopefully, forever homes) to help them recover from treatment.
If foster homes can be found, to help these pups recover their chances for adoption are better as is their continued lifespan at a local shelter. If not, they are euthanized to make room for even more. It's a very sad state of affairs.
Don't for get to contact Dellia or HSSTT if you are looking for cats and kittens as well. See above for contact numbers.
Alana, many of us care very much but we've not the place for this dog. What about those who contributed to his heart worm treatment? That's not inexpensive treatment. Did they contribute on the assumption that if his heart worm was cured he'd be immediately adoptable? If Bentley ends up euthanized then the money which well-meaning people contributed will have been totally wasted, right?
Not at all OT. You should know better.
Instead of criticizing, pass the word on your e-mail list and help.
Money is collected for heart-worm treatments (and spay and neutering) by Lucky Paws so that these animals, if able to find a foster home to recover in, from the treatment will have a better chance at then being adopted into a forever home and the Shelter keeps them longer, which gives them a better chance, otherwise it is Bye - Bye!
No foster home found and no treatment can be given and Euthanasia is the next step.
Recovery from the treatment needs a calmer, quieter environment and they do not have that at the shelter, hence the need for foster homes. That's just how it goes when there are so many unfortunate, disposable, ill treated animals!
The money does not go to waste as there is always, unfortunately, the next (multiples thereof) needy animal(s).
I fully understand that many people have multiple animals and can't deal with another but if by using my time posting for Bentley or the next needy animal helps get him foster care, treatment and a forever home, then I am happy to do so.
Pass the word that Bentley needs a home.
There are other animals in dire need as well but many do not require the heart-worm treatment that he does, presently.
Here are a couple more dogs looking for homes that are ready to go:
If you can help offer a forever home, a foster home, some spare time, a donation of food, money, safe dog or cat toys, doggie beds, etc. contact Reah at Humane Society - 775-0511 or Dellia at Lucky Paws Foundation - 513- 1854
You have to contact Reah at Humane Society 775-0599 to ask about his behavior around cats and recovery time from treatment.
Yes, they need quiet and not much exercise. Pls call HSSTT if you can help or have questons (or Dellia at Lucky Paws).
Of course, they are probably closeed for the holidays.
