one of the oldtime rescuers i used to work with, got mad if the pounds and shelters weren't calling her...she thought that meant they were judging her because she had so many and that dogs that she would take in were probably getting euth'd.
she may have been right on both counts.
when my phone isn't ringing..i am profoundly grateful..i don't have to struggle between my goody-two shoes help everyone that i can....and the other part of me who really would like 100 less animals around here.
there are a couple of dogs lately testing the waters cuz they may need to come in. one is from kamloops so i am kind of hoping that getting him here is more of a headache then finding a home for him. the other one may or may not have another option...i am just waiting to hear..hope that he does cuz then i won't have to take him here.
then there are the 2 dogs who's request came in thru the mail yesterday...i don't know anything about them except their owner went into facility care. i did call about them but no return to the message i left so i am assuming either they are placed somewhere or they are both already dead. i figure if they were still around, someone would have been on me like a dirty shirt soon after i called.
whatever..less is still more in my crowded world. and i am far happier not knowing about every desperate, homeless senior animal out there..shit..i know more than enough of them here.
do you why our animals don't often get adopted...(besides that they are mostly old and wrecked?)...it is because we don't nuke them so everyone figures they are safe.
i am thinking i should nuke one per week and post their picture all over the internet saying this will be happening if so and so does not find a good by friday.
so here we go...
URGENT..will be EUTHANIZED on FRIDAY:
5 yr old blind, diabetic, hypothyoid, adorable, small little husky.
Odie has been fully vetted and comes with all meds.
PLEASE save this dog..time is running out!
(now i can just sit back and wait for the call cuz now for sure some soft heart somewhere is going to feel the need to save this adorable, little, blind, and innocent dog!)
