jesse went down yesterday..looks like the same kind of spinal thing that took him down a few months ago. hopefully with some rest and upping his meds, we can get him back up on his feet again soon.
erin found frankie the parapalegic pitbull on another rescue group's web page. I wondered why I hadn't heard back from his owner at the end of march to arrange about future admission as we agreed. oh well, at least I know now that I don't have to save him a spot or try figure out how or when or where to fit him in here. one less dog to worry about but it would have been nice if the owner had let us know.
anyway..i think morally since I was holding that spot, I should let the shelters know, we have one spot for one at the end of the road, desperate dog in need. someone else might be happy for a final chance to actually keep on living. honestly folks just don't get how critical it is for someone to have an actual place available to them somewhere..it is wasteful of life to tie up a space here that someone no longer needs.
it kind of pisses me off...who has died in the past few weeks who maybe could have had Frankie's spot here.
big sigh..i was honestly worried about bringing that dog here but I had already committed to him so I would have brought him in and done the best that we could. I just wish people would let me know when they make other arrangements so I can cross that particular animal off my list and maybe help someone else instead.
this is the problem with owner surrenders...they only care about one where as we care about many.
oh well one spot for an end of the line shelter dog..i am done with owner surrenders at least for now. I will call ivanna this morning and let her know saints has one available spot.
I guess we will see who needs it and when.
