Petie has arrived

Dear Friends
Firstly, thank your for all your support, love and concern for Petie, it is much appreciated!
Petie arrived from Tiwan yesterday (photos attached) and I have to say I am quite smitten!   What an ADORABLE little guy!  He literally jumped out of the crate and into my arms with a great big greeting.  There are many rescues who have taken dogs from other countries but Petie is my first and therefore will always be special.  It has been a goal of mine to broaden my rescue efforts and when Petie came into my life it was the perfect time.
As you may recall from my original email, Petie lived with an alchoholic who would often beat abuse him.  He took him several times to a deserted location and left him there to die dumped but Petie, being the smart Terrier he is, found his way back each time.  Even though abused, he was still loyal!
Petie will no longer ever be abused and will no longer ever be dumped to die.  He is still in need of a temporary foster home until his foster mom returns for vacation.  Petie has been vaccinated, neutered, microchipped and examined by my vet here.  Aside from a cataract (which may require surgery) he is a healthy, happy very quirky little guy.
For adoption and or foster information, please email or all me directly at the number listed below.
Kind regards,
Sheilah

Petie needs a home

Hey Gang

May I introduce you a special boy named Petie, who lives in Taiwan.  Petie had been abandoned by his owner THREE times but ever loyal, he miraculously found his way home even though it was a long distance.

A local Taiwanese rescue group heard Petie’s story from a journalist, who covered his story and had it published in the newspaper. Their mission is to rescue dogs off the streets and get them to safe homes in the U.S. and Canada.  According to witnesses, Petie’s owner is an alcoholic, who used to take out his discontentment and complaint on Petie by kicking and cursing him.  Whenever he was upset, he drove Petie on his motorcycle to a deserted land and dumped him there.  But Petie wasn’t going to be left to die and managed every time to survive and find his way home.

The local rescue reports Petie is a very sweet, happy and friendly boy who can get along with ALL very well.  He is approximately 1 years old, weighs only 24 lbs, neutered and healthy.

Mutt Match L.A. would be honored to take little Petie under our wings but we MUST find a foster first.   The Taiwanese rescue is willing to pay for transport we need to raise some funds to get him checked out by our vet and find him a foster.

This little guy is a special guy indeed, very adoptable who deserves a loving home where he won’t be kicked and dumped to die  PLEASE help us help Petie!

I signed up for a donation website to help gather supplies for the many endless animals I come across !! AND since Tibbie has become a kitten magnet I just brought 4 2 week old baby kittens to the vet I will be looking to place them once they get a clean bill of health!  If you all can forward this out to your contacts maybe someone might have some donatable items I can use.  For financial donations our website is www.undertheporch.wordpress.com or www.kindheartsinaction.com But this website below is a giving network for donations of supplies, or food etc…  Every little bit helps and I appreciate you thinking of us at all !!

Puppies are pound-bound

PLEASE NETWORK

Five adorable 8-week old puppies are pound-bound unless rescued.

I don’t know the details of the situation other than this: the contact person says the dog owner is her client and she is trying to find rescue for the puppies otherwise her client is going to dump them at the Lancaster, California, shelter.  She convinced her client to wait a week or two while she tries to find a rescue.  Clearly the client/dog owner needs to get the female spayed but the immediate need is rescue fro the 5 puppies- all are female and they are 8 week old boxer/lab mixes (photos attached.) Beyond cute, very adoptable…..

Please contact Sue at Mustang4Su@aol.com if you can help.


Socks needs a home


Magoo needs YOU!!

This is Magoo. He was on the list for euthanasia at East Valley Shelter after his owner dropped him off a week prior. HIS OWNER DROPPED HIM OFF TO SHELTER- knowing he would be euth listed  – blind in one eye, with  tumors but still spunky enough to demand walks and treats.

He barely was given a week! I was going there to pull a few other dogs that were approved for a transport to Seattle. Magoo was gonna go to, even though he is 9 yers old, but then the shelter told me about all his health issues. The rescue could only take healthy dogs but I did not have the heart to leave him there. I went ahead and pulled him, acting solely on emotions.  He went to the vet who confirmed what the shelter had told me. His teeth were horrible and his gums were infected.  He is blind in one eye because of a lack of tear production. Had he been given eye drops, his eye would be fine. The vet said it must have been very painful for him. A cataract is starting to form in his “good” eye. He had a few masses on his body, the biggest one was a tennis ball sized mass hanging off his chest. The dental issues was the most pressing due to the infection so I went ahead and scheduled a dental cleaning and mass removal off his chest since he’d already be under anesthesia. The estimate was between $600-800 (with a discount) if there was no need for dental extractions. Well, he had to get 7 teeth removed and the vet wound up removing two masses. My total bill (including blood work) is $1584. The great news is his masses were totally benign cysts! The bad news is I need money to pay his bills! I also really need to find him a home. He is so spunky and has a great and entertaining personality.

I know some of you are not in a position to help out either financially or by giving him a home, but if you can please, please send this e-mail to a few friends, I know together we can raise the funds needed and find him a wonderful home.

My wonderful neighbor has been helping me take care of Magoo and she has a non-profit animal charity that can accept donations for Magoo. This way you can also get a tax write off.  Donations can be made on her site https://undertheporch.wordpress.com. Or you can donate directly to the vet, Redondo Veterinary, 541 N. Pacific Coast Highway, Suite D, Redondo Beach, CA 90277,  310.376.6056
If you donate directly to the vet, please let me know so I can keep track of my balance.
