Pilots and Paws saved 4 lives this St Patrick’s Day
Vanita sends stories about four lives saved on St Patrick’s Day! The stories are…
Sundance was dumped in the Corridor of Cruelty in Houston to fend for himself. Luckily, a lovely lady called Anna, who has a feeding program, took some pictures of Sundance…and it caught the attention of Summit Dog Rescue in Colorado. If Summit’s eye hadn’t been caught, Sundance would have been a stray for a very very long time–like most of his life. There are 1.2 million (yes, 1.2 million) stray dogs in this area! After a neuter and some shots, he is now in Colorado enjoying the cold weather!
Cher was a gorgeous, well behaved 95 pound purebred chocolate lab of 3 years, dumped by her owners at a 91% kill rate shelter in Central Houston. She went into the “adoptions” ward, where no doubt, she would have become a garden accessory for a Houston adopter…no shots, no heartworm prevention, living a life of solitude in the back yard…..UNTIL Retriever Rescue of Colorado stepped up to take this 95 pound gentle sweetheart….which brings me to Cole….
Cole is a flat coat retriever puppy with a magnetic personality. Super sweet. When the runner in Houston went to pick up Cher at this high kill shelter, she saw THOUSANDS of dogs being turned in. Somehow, Cole’s good looks and sparky personality caught the attention of the runner. So she told the people who found him (as a stray in a up market neighborhood in Houston)…just gimme the dog! The sweet man who had him from Christmas day, and called him Nicholas, cried and cried….! And Retriever Rescue of Colorado stepped up to the transporter, immediately to take this cute little guy.
And the last and luckiest one is Alvin. Another one doomed in TX because he is black. Nobody was rescuing or adopting him. The pound waited and waited for someone to take a liking to him. Nobody came forward. So Mountain Pet Rescue stepped up to take him!
PIlots and Paws and Retriever Rescue of Colorado, Moutain Pet Rescue and Summit Dog Rescue ROCK! They came to the rescue, no questions asked, and just stepped up. I love you love you love you. The problem in Houston and Texas is terrible terrible terrible. But at least 4 are out of Texas and on greener (and snowier?) pastures in Colorado.
