A home for a dog


Recommended Posts

One of the things that surprised me the most coming here are the amount of dogs without homes. I am not sure why this is, but today I found out that three of the dogs that live in the park close to me are probably destined to be put down because they simply dont have a home. 

I never had a pet as I traveled to much in the past, but every day I would pass this new litter of puppy's and could not help myself and adopted one of them. Unfortunately today I heard the local residents want to call animal control and get ride of them, aka, put them down. So as a last ditch effort, I am here asking that if anyone has room for one of the last three, please let me know, as I would hate to see these beautiful animals lose their life.

Arn’t there no kill shelters here?

no idea, I haven't been here long enough and its the locals dealing with the situation so I am not sure how things are done here. This is the first time I have had a pet and dont know much.

There are considerably fewer street dogs today than there were even a few years ago. Literally hundreds have been sent to shelters (and new homes) NOB. Local free and low-cost spay/neuter clinics have also made a big difference. 

There are several no-kill shelters: The Ranch, Lucky Dog, and the newest SOS. That's the good news. The bad news is they are usually pretty full, especially this time of year when the snow-birds are returning and dumping off their 'winter dogs'. 

There is also a local Facebook group that works to find foster and forever homes for street dogs.

"especially this time of year when the snow-birds are returning and dumping off their winter dogs" That is absolutely horrible, what kind of person has such a callous attitude toward animals?

Someone here will know how to contact the group that ships dogs north by the plane and busload on a very regular basis. If foster homes can be found until they can be sent, pretty sure this is your answer.

Shelters are as mentioned above:: The Ranch, Lucky Dog, and the newest SOS

Natasha refers to Bone Voyage , also a local dog rescue group. they do have not a physical facility but rather rely on fosters.  They have a FB page and website with contact info

Thanks everyone, I have made a list of all the suggestions and will give it to the group that runs the area. Where I am is 100% locals and I am the only foreigner here, so I have still a lot to learn about the way things are done here.
