Hi Liz!

Here’s the story…  Carole Sanders with Animal Angels offered to take River into her rescue but we needed to find a foster for a couple of weeks or board her until Carole shuffled some space around and we could make arrangements to transport her.  Well, in the meantime, one of my rescue contacts here in Denton, Diane Paulsen, offered to foster River, so that’s all I needed to hear!  I could hardly sleep last night cuz I was so excited!  I let the shelter know I would be there first thing this morning to pull her and get her vetted.  Oh my gosh, I had already paid the adoption fee, filled out the paperwork, they brought her to me, and we were ready to walk out the door when four people showed up to see her!!!  I couldn’t believe it!   I guess after I sent out my urgent plea for her, she was circulated via email and posted on FB, so people started showing up at the shelter this morning!  It was so awesome!   I actually had to rip up the check and paperwork for her adoption cuz it was a done deal… or so we thought.  I talked to the lady who ended up adopting her for a long time and I feel very good about her new furever mom and home!  WOOHOO!!!

Thanks so much for helping me get the word out on this angel!!!

When you have held a tiny puppy in your arms as it kissed your face with slobbery puppy breath, 
when you have held an injured or severely ill dog in your arms, and when you have looked into the eyes of a tired aging senior dog, 
then you will understand the life of a rescuer. We find beauty in the most incomprehensible places and the otherwise homely faces. 
It is our gift to see beyond the dirt, terror, sadness and defeat and find the true soul that lies within. We are Rescue.

Okay everyone, when I was at the shelter this morning my heart was broken yet again…  River has become extremely depressed, and just sits in her kennel facing the back.  She is shutting down and won’t interact with anybody so nobody has even asked to visit with her.  Oh my heart.   

PLEASE, I’M GROVELING NOW… PLEASE HELP ME SAVE THIS ANGEL!!!  SHE NEEDS A MIRACLE AND AN ANGEL!!!

The adoption fee pays to have the dog spayed/neutered, pre-surgical pain meds, one overnight stay at vet, suture removal, and 2 week checkup; Rabies, Bordetella, DHLPP vaccines; occult HW test & 1st month HW preventative; treatment for fleas & ticks; deworming for hook & round worms; Microchip.  Rescues can pull for free.

Note: At the Denton Animal Shelter euthanasia is determined by space, health, and temperament of the dog and they do not have a specific day they euthanize, nor do they provide a EU list.  Therefore, I don’t always know when or which dogs will be euthanized, so I try to save as many dogs as I can because time is of the essence.

As always, if you are not able to help, please forward this email to your contacts.

Waiting, wondering, hoping…  There is no better legacy to leave than a beating heart that would not be there had it not been for you.  Rescue.  Adopt.

RIVER is a 2-5 yr young female Labby/Shepherd mix who was found as a stray. It looks as though she has been recently shaved.  She is a pretty chocolate color, with eyes that tell a story, and she is friendly with people and all her pooch pals at the shelter!
