Rancho Cucamonga CA: 7/11 Still Available! Pls watch VIDEO! Adopt/Rescue Amazing Humphrey the Energetic Dog Cooped up in Boarding

I checked with DogBreedInfo.com and was told Humphrey appears to be an American Foxhound mix. Click HERE to view their page about the American Foxhound.

Hi Liz,  I have had zero replies or interest in Humphrey.  Poor boy is sitting in a boarding facility and has been for months.  We have networked everywhere and START has sent to their rescue partners with no avail.  I would give him to a reputable rescue after we checked them out.  I would also want a contract signed that he cannot be euthanized.  If they had issues of any kind I would take him back.  He really is a very nice boy who has energy and wants so badly to play and explore. I am hoping to find a home that has a yard with grass because he is constantly scraping in one foot on the concrete kennel floor.

Someone out there would make a perfect companion for Happy Humphrey. This is a dog who has showed enormous patience, congeniality and optimism during his recovery from a spine fractured in two places as a result of a motorist striking him. Please share to find this amazing dog the home of his dreams.

Contact: Pat Bonham
Humphrey is an 80-pound dog who likes riding in the car and loves to play in the water. He gets along fine and needs no help to walk or run. Who knows how much more he can heal if he only gets the chance at a home and a place to use his legs and play and run? 

His back-end swings a bit out of control if he runs too fast. He got occasional sores on his feet dragging them in his cement boarding kennel. Pat wrote, "This Dog won the hearts of all the staff at the Vets and they spoiled him with hugs and treats. Humphrey is a happy dog and has never given up...and neither have we."

Humphrey was on the euth list at the Devore Shelter and pulled by Pat Bonham in mid-December 2017. His owners had let him run loose and he was struck by a motorist and left on the side of the road.

Humphrey was in pain and his back legs were paralyzed, but he carried himself around by using his front legs. You can see a short clip of this in a video Pat shared on Christmas Day last year and which I included in a fundraising blog post.


Pat wrote, "HopeforPaws.org generously arranged for him to get an MRI and that is when we found his spine was fractured. Without the support of Hope For Paws, we would still be trying to raise funds just for the MRI.  Now we have continued for months with follow-up care, massage treatments, acupressure treatments and giving him time to heal. NOW he is NOT walking but RUNNING. This is an amazing recovery for a SPECIAL dog who had the strongest will to live and to have have FUN too."

After networking for a foster or forever for Humphrey without any luck, a friend of Pat's uploaded this video in June, and as you can see, a moving picture is worth a thousand words:


His Adopt-a-Pet page is HERE. He is a big, mixed-breed boy. Please share to find him an active family, hopefully with a grass yard so he can run and get stronger without hurting his feet and legs. He is 4 years old.

Do you know someone who would give him a loving home?  His adoption fee is reasonable to the right home and he is fully-vetted and microchipped. Humphrey has been so long in boarding but he is the happiest dog there...waiting patiently.

Pat wrote 6/25/18, "Humphrey is great in the car (and loves going thru a Hamburger Drive thru to get a meat patty), and if given his choice would run like the wind and chase every squirrel, Lizard and Bunny rabbit that crossed his path...therefore we are looking for a home without kitty cats. Although he has gone by the kitty cages many times at his stay at his vet and he never paid attention to them. I have had Humphrey with three of my big dogs and with proper introduction there was no problem at all.  He especially likes my Lab-Pit mix Gretchen in the video with him.
I think Humphrey would be the most awesome BALL or Frisby player. PLEASE SHARE ON ALL YOUR MEDIA SITES TO HELP GET HIM INTO A SAFE AND LOVING HOME. HE HAS WAITED SO LONG AND HE HAS NEVER GIVEN UP....HE HAS an AURA ABOUT HIM THAT SEEMS TO WIN THE HEART OF EVERYONE WHO MEETS HIM AND IS AN EXAMPLE OF AN AMAZINGLY SMART CANINE WHO TOOK EVERYTHING IN STRIDE AND LONGS FOR LIFES SIMPLE PLEASURES. PLEASE EMAIL ME AT ALPHADOGPETRESCUE@YAHOO.COM IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING HIM. OUR NON PROFIT PAYPAL IS DESERTDOGS@RockandRescue.org. Thank you for SHARING"

Big Bear CA: 7/11 Video! RE: Urgent! Rescue or Adopt Elton and Carl the Bonded pair of 13-yr-old senior mixed breed #dogs. Their human mom died.

7/11 update. The boys are still urgent. They would benefit from immediate and complete medical exams if only there were a kind sponsor who could provide this for them. Please network for them. The daughter will be moving to Seattle WA around July 22. I have not heard whether she can consider taking Elton and Carl to a rescue in the Seattle area if one steps up for the boys, but will update this link as soon as I hear back. Elton and Carl need to have a rescue plan solidified by then. The contact is their kind neighbor Jacqueline at jaccucui@aol.com. Please look at their cute 18-second video which the daughter provided.

To: 

Need to find a home for these 2 elderly dogs.
The owner passed away recently of lung cancer. The black one is about 13 years old mixed breed male named Elton. The brown one is about 13 as well, mixed breed and his name is Carl. They are both very sweet and need to be adopted together, as they would not survive without each other, especially after losing their mother to cancer. They are currently in Big Bear, CA. The daughter is staying at the house for a short time to get ready to sell the house, so they need to find a kind loving home for them as soon as possible as she is wrapping things up very soon. Please email Jacqueline at jaccucui@aol.com for contact or any questions.
Thank you

Please help Claudette find a home for little Buktuks!


~Message from Claudette~

Hello, 

I am trying to surrender an 11 yr-old Yorkie.  I can no longer care for him, can no longer afford him.  I've tried the local Paulding County dog shelter and they couldn't take him right now due to being filled.  He was purchased at 3 months old at a pet shop at the Kennesaw Mall. He is friendly, but has not had any shots this year. He is not neutered.

Please let me know of any other options. I need to place him asap.

Thanks in advance,

Claudette

The vets found her heart to be very enlarged and her lungs were enlarged as well. Click here to view the Vet invoice (Page 2 does not show but it is just the signature page) from last night; they do not take donations directly and they only give a 5-day grace period to pay the bill.

USA: Fostering a Shelter Pet NOW during Fireworks Season Saves Lives!


USAPets and wildlife suffer during this time of year due to fireworks. L.A. Animal Services in the City of  Los Angeles circulated a good description of the overcrowding that typically happens at shelters nationwide during this time. If you can foster one or more pets wherever you live it what happens is that you would help two pets. It would help the dog or cat or other soul you foster, and also open up their spot at the pound for a pet who gets startled, escapes and runs to get away from the calamity, then gets lost and (either struck by motorists or) impounded. Even fostering for a relatively short time can be helpful. Check out your local shelter to inquire whether fosters are needed. By the way, at L.A. Animal Services June 23 and 24 is a special CHI-PITTY-KITTY weekend with reduced pet adoption rates at all City of L.A. animal shelters. See their message HERE

To:

PLEASE CROSSPOST AND SHARE EVERYWHERE FOR THIS AWESOME BOY!

Phillipsburg, NJ. Contact me directly, if you would like to adopt this incredible boy, at enlightened34@aol.com.
 
This gorgeous, sensitive, amazing and gentle boy is in need of a wonderful home! He was rescued from being very abused from the streets of Egypt by Amira Mahmoud. She knew it would be best for him to come to the US to find a forever home and that is what we are in search of now. Snosik is 3 years old, fully vetted, microchipped and neutered. He loves other cats and does not mind mellow dogs. He is FIV positive but that does not mean it's a death sentence. If you are up to speed you will know that FIV cannot be transmitted by simple sharing of food and water bowls. Only through severe bite wounds. He can live safely with other cats that are not FIV. He must must go to a caring and sensitive home as he is an incredibly special boy. He would love to have a friend to play with. An application is required as well as a home check and adoption fee applies to ensure his safety. Please no applicants more than an hour away from Phillipsburg,  NJ.  We want to keep Snosik close in case he needs our help in his transition to his new home.
