Owensboro, KY - Dogs dying TODAY for space! - Please help heartbreaking, heartbroken BELLA; Cruelty All her Life! 

Please hurry to cross-post, forward, network, and share sweet Bella who has suffered so much in her life, who has been hurt over and over again, and bred and exploited, whose ears have been butchered so badly one is almost gone!  Who has scars all over her face and body, half of whose tail is missing!  This precious girl is now in danger of death, never having a chance to know love, to feel safe, to rightfully trust someone who will never hurt her!  

She is at Daviess County Animal Control in Owensboro, KY, in an OPEN ADMISSION SHELTER THAT CANNOT TURN AWAY ANY ANIMAL IN NEED, no matter how desperate they are for space!  

Yesterday they were forced by a flood of new intakes to euthanize sweet dogs, and they are still desperate for space!  NEW INTAKES TODAY WILL MEAN MORE DOGS WILL BE EUTHANIZED!  

Please spread the word far and wide for Bella!!  Please help her to live and finally know peace, safety and love!

If you are BELLA'S angel, please contact Daviess County Animal Control IMMEDIATELY!  Dogs died yesterday, and more lives will be lost today without HELP NOW!

If you reach voice mail, please leave a message saying you are calling to offer rescue to Bella!  Please use the words "RESCUE OFFER FOR BELLA" in the subject line of your email.
PLEASE FOLLOW UP TO MAKE SURE YOUR OFFER HAS BEEN RECEIVED!

For out of state rescues: the shelter can provide you with information regarding transport options; there are many such options for transport to the east coast and the northeast! 



BROKEN & DISCARDED!!  Two words used to describe this poor girl.  She is no longer able to produce puppies, no longer able to look the part, no longer a trophy to show off and parade around, and no longer of value to her abusive handlers.  We were told BELLA was found years ago as a stray in Chicago.  Unfortunately, her finders hit the jackpot in using her to produce beautiful puppies, and time and time again, money was made at poor Bella's expense.

SOULFUL, and BEAUTIFUL!!  Two words that come to my mind when you look into the eyes of this sweet girl, repeatedly beaten down by life.  There is so much depth, beauty, and pain behind her eyes, and the story they tell is one that is incredibly heartbreaking.  Bella comes with no real history. She cannot tell us where she has been, what pain she has endured, or what experiences she has had. While we may not know everything or even half of what she has been through, one thing is for sure, this innocent girl has suffered and suffered immensely at the hands of those that were supposed to protect her.  

Her ears have been butchered, and one is almost completely gone, her entire body is covered in both internal and external scars, she is missing half of her tail, she cowers and shudders at the slightest movement, she wears the signs of excessive breeding, and her sad, soulful eyes weep for the life she has been forced to endure year after year.

When you meet Bella, you will notice her expressionless face.  She looks right into your eyes just waiting to see if you are going to be nice to her or hurt her yet again.  She desperately needs someone to trust; someone to provide her with love, structure, and care.  It is something she has never had before, but longs for so badly.  She needs to feel that sense of security and peace in her life.  She has carried such a heavy burden and so much worry for the longest time; it is time for her to finally sit back, relax, and let someone else take the reins.

Bella is a calm, respectful girl who is heartworm negative, and about 7 years old.  She has a short, squatty stature, weighs approximately 50 pounds, and unfortunately has two lumps on her that the vet is unsure about.  They appear to have been there for a while, so they could be nothing at all (at least that's what we hope), but they will likely have to be removed at the time of her spay.  Bella is looking for a quiet, patient home without any other dogs or young kids running around.  She needs a home where she can build confidence, learn to trust, and won't have to compete for food or love from anyone else.  We know these kinds of homes are extremely difficult to find, but we refuse to give up on this girl without at least trying first.  She hasn't given up on life yet, so neither will we, but we seriously need YOUR help and sharing power. 

 Please hurry!!  The shelter is CODE RED, and this girl is considered less adoptable since she needs to be the only dog!
