Nick (formerly Bubba) – Needs a Home for the Holiday’s!!

Saint NickNickNick AsleepNick INick

“Nick” (formerly aka “Bubba”) – He Needs a Home for the Holidays! (foster or adopter)

Here’s the scoop on Nick:
- a male tan and white pit pup
- about 6-8months old
- weight – about 60lbs



Nick’s Story:
Nick/aka “Bubba” is a young sweet pit pup that was found abandoned in a town in LA County. A young girl found him and brought him home, hoping to locate his owners or find him a new home. He did fine with the other dogs, young kids and cats in their home. Sadly no owner was found and her father decided there were to be no more dogs at their house. He threatened that “Bubba” had to be gone this week or he would take him to the local high kill shelter (where most pitties have no chance to survive!) 

Thankfully through FB, his story and cute “Santa dog photos” spread and a fellow rescuer contacted Dog Shack to ask for our help. We agreed to help him. We decided that he should be re-named “Nick” to suit his “Saint Nick attire” and his rescue right before Christmas!

Nick has been transported up to us in the Marin, CA area – he needs a foster home at least through the holidays, and then ideally a forever home. Nick is still a pup but he has already been through a lot and bounced around. He would do best in a home that will have someone who can be home a lot or can take him along for daily activities. Also, like any young dog, he will benefit from more basic training to grow into a well behaved adult dog.

If you are interested in fostering or adopting Nick, please contact Dog Shack ASAP by email: pets.katrina@gmail.com

Please include your location and best contact tel. number so a volunteer can get back to you quickly.

 

Mona – URGENT FOSTER or HOME NEEDED!

 

Mona IMona

MONA – URGENT! NEEDS FOSTER ASAP!
Miss Mona is a sweet pretty 2 year old gray and white pittie that Urgently needs a Foster so we can Save her from a high kill shelter – would you be that special someone to open your heart and home to help… us save Mona?
Sadly Mona was surrendered to a rural high kill shelter by her owners because they said “she escapes the yard”. The shelter tested her with people, other dogs, and even a chicken and she passed ALL the tests! When she arrived at the shelter she was a very friendly, happy girl  and loved getting out of her kennel to see people.
However,  as Mona realized her owners were not coming back for her, while being in that scary shelter environment she became very “shell shocked” and frightened (but NOT fear aggressive). This darling girl needs to be in a loving home ASAP so she can regain her confidence and return back to being her wonderful sweet self again! She needs someone to show her love and who knows how to help her feel secure and overcome her fears.
Mona urgently needs a Foster home and ultimately a forever home, so if could you be that special person for her, please contact us for more information.

Bear needs a Foster or Home ASAP!

Bear VBear IIIBearBear II

Meet Bear! – Rottie/Shepherd Mix Needs Foster ASAP!
Bear is a sweet senior male Rottie/Shepherd mix who is an overall lovely big guy looking for a nice warm comfy home. He has a precious face and perfectly suits his name – he definitely ha…s a “big cuddly teddy bear” look! Bear is a “full figured boy”, carrying some extra weight at about 90lbs. He is not an active boy and would be quite content to just have a loving home where he can laze around and relax (although some regular casual walks would be good for him too). He is an easy boy and won’t cause you any trouble at all.
Sadly Bear was dumped at a high kill shelter in Socal right before Thanksgiving because his family just decided they didn’t want him anymore! Can you imagine how confused and heartbroken he must feel, not understanding why his family is not coming back for him? This is the worst time of year for animals to be in the shelter, since most are beyond capacity and the killing rate is higher due to lack of space for more incoming animals. We could not let Bear die alone in a scary unknown place, feeling alone and abandoned. We stepped up to help save this big guy and get him out of the high kill shelter. Now Bear urgently needs a foster (or adopter) so his life is spared and he has a place to go – are you that special someone to open your heart and home for him??
If you are interested in fostering or adopting Bear, please contact us ASAP by Emailing: pets.katrina@gmail.com Please include some brief background and your contact information so we can respond more quickly.

Trinity_female tan and white pit mix_Moreno_freedom pic  1a_11-22-14Trinity_female tan and white pit mix_Moreno_lying  down_shelter collage_crop_11-17-14

Trinity – Needs Experienced Foster ASAP!

Trinity is a young tan and white pit mix girl, about 1 year old and has a small build weighing about 40lbs.

This precious girl was just saved from a high kill shelter and is currently very terrified, but not fear aggressive.

She needs a dog savvy foster that has experience dealing with very shy timid dogs, who can work with her to help her gain confidence, feel secure in her environment, and become more socialized.

It will be a very rewarding experience to help her come out of her shell and fully blossom into the great dog that she can become!

If you can offer the type of foster home Trinity needs and can spend the time to help her learn that the world is not a such a scary place, please contact us. Please include information about your dog experience and the type of home and training you could provide for Trinity.

MEET TACO – NEEDS ADOPTER OR FOSTER ASAP!

Taco is a 2 year old handsome and lovable male brindle and white staffie mix. He has a good sturdy build and weighs about 65lbs. He is an all-around awesome dog who does great with kids and other dogs (cats unknown but he showed no interest in the shelter cats).

Taco just wants to be loved and is eager to have a family of his own that will give him lots of attention, play time, and cuddles!

Taco was at an over-crowded high kill Socal shelter and his time was up  right before Thanksgiving! The shelter volunteers knew he was a special boy that deserved a second chance at life, so they contacted our rescue to help at his final hour. We could not let him die and knew we needed to save him  before the holiday or he would have NO chance! Thankfully we were able to get him out of the shelter and transported to Norcal into temporary boarding, just to save his life.

Now Taco needs a loving home to call his own – either an adopter of a foster home.

See his sad face in his first photo that was taken while still at the shelter, and now he is already looking happier in the other photos which were taken on his first “Freedom Day”!!

We want to see him with a loving family ASAP that will give him a permanent happy face!!

If you think you could be a good match for Taco to foster or adopt him, please contact us ASAP and include your completed Adoption Application Form.

Tasha and Puppies – Need Homes!!

Mom and pups  Female II pit pup2 lil boy black pit pupsFemale IV Black Pit Pup

 

201412099514184220141209951420022014120995151959Sweet Tasha is a young tan and white terrier/lab mix that recently had a litter of 7 pups, and the entire family was at a high kill shelter.
A shelter environment is definitely no place for… a Momma and her young babies, where they can easily become ill and there is not adequate staffing to care for them.

When we received the plea looking for help to save this darling family, we stepped up to get them out to safety. Now they are with a temporary foster but need a longer foster, until they are ready to be adopted.

The pups are about 5 weeks old now, healthy, and still feeding from the mother, but have also started on solid foods. Tasha is a lovely dog that has been a good mother to her babies, but soon will be ready to find a home of her own. She will be a great addition to a family.

We want to keep the family together for at least a few more weeks until the babies are fully weaned and ready to leave their Momma.

If you are interested in fostering this family for a few weeks please contact us at: katrina.pets@gmail.com

Also, the pups will be available for individual foster/adoption after Christmas, so we will be accepting applications for review soon.

Hayley – Adopted!!

Hayley – This Staffy Mix Needs Foster or Adopter ASAP!

Pretty little Haley is a 1 year old female black and white American Staffordshire terrier mix that has a small build, weighing about 35lbs. She is so cute with her stand up ears!

She was just rescued from a high kill shelter in Socal in her final hours (where they euthanize dogs daily due to lack of space). Everyone that met her at the shelter said she is just the sweetest little girl that does fine with other well-mannered dogs (especially likes to play with male dogs), although she prefers to be with humans. She was good with the kids she met too. She seems to have too much interest in cats, birds and squirrels so would need a home with No cats or small critters.

Haley would like a home where she is not left home alone too much, at least initially. She is crate trained.

Haley Urgently needs a home to go to – either a foster or a permanent home.

Take a look at Hayley in her videos: You can see how cute she is here with her shelter kennel mate- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXrcZ53cDdM

Learn more about her here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ER_x4WcuZbE&feature=player_embedded -

Angel – Please give me a home or foster me!

Angel frontLittle Fox dogAngel face1Little Chow Mix

Angel is the perfect family dog!  She is a lovely female Chow/ Kelpie mix who is about 3 years old and weighs about 35lbs. She has a pretty golden-red coat and is a great “go anywhere” size. She is a real darling, very affectionate, and super smart. She is alert, energetic, plays well with other dogs, and walks well on a leash. She is always so happy to be out and about with you that she turns and gives you smiles as you’re going along.  It’s like being with another person!

Angel is eager to have a home of her own, after being rescued from a SoCal shelter where she was supposed to be put down with her buddy Leo  - we couldn’t let that happen so we rescued them both. Leo has already been adopted and now Angel says it’s her turn! She will make a wonderful family addition. Due to her breed mix she needs a home with NO cats or small critters.

Please consider fostering or adopting this precious girl.
