Monday all of my dogs got out, and a fostered beagle for Joyce Urban and
Forgotten Friends Rescue escaped as well. They all came back except for
my Springer/beagle mix and Joyce's beagle.
MESSAGE. PLEASE RESPOND
I [original author] personally saw this wonderful dog cower in terror on the ground when the abuser visited the relative to deliver Christmas presents. He's in a safe situation right now, staying with a relative who will not return him to the family where the husband (and father of five!) kicked and beat him, not to mention keeping him chained to a doghouse. He's supposed to go to a different permanent home, but the prospective adoptive family may be reneging, and the relative is afraid the "owners" (questionable, since there's no license tag) may decide they want him back. I was asked to line something up for him--even a foster home--just so he doesn't have to be returned to the abuser.
By the way, even though the relative tells me the prospective adopter will be a good home, it's far from an ideal situation, because the adopter is the abuser's sister and it seems to me that the dog would be in danger of being taken back at any time. The best thing would be to get him out of the immediate area, which is in Northeastern Pennsylvania. If you can help, or have any ideas, please contact me at ISellHooknLoop@aol.com--not my usual screen name. For obvious reasons I'm keeping all this as anonymous as possible.

Needs Help Paying
Mr. and Mrs. Winters didn't know the tabby cat they would later name Leo before the fateful moment they saw him hit by a car. But, they saw him, they rescued him, and when no one claimed him, they adopted him. They didn't know just how serious his injuries were -- now they know he needs surgery or he will die. They cleared their savings account but still come up short. They need to collect $1,500 to cover the operation. If you'd can help, donations can be sent to the following address:
AKRON CAT "OWNERS"
If you let your cats roam free without ID, they could wind up not just in custody, but dead as a result of a new Akron law.
The Akron City Council on Monday unanimously passed a new law restricting cats from roaming at large. The law imposes fines on owners who fail to clean up after their animal and gives the city animal wardens the authority to pick up roamers if they receive a complaint about them.
Cats without ID tags may be assumed feral, stray or abandoned. Ill cats (including those with UPI, fleas, and ringworm -- all treatable conditions).

Needs Cat - Needs Home/Foster
woman had to go into a home that did not allow pets so HART promised her
we would help her cat Precious, who is morbidly obese and needs help!
She has been started on a strict diet that will enable her to lose those
necessary pounds. She cannot even groom herself. It is very sad. She is
currently without a foster home and is sitting at the Petsmart of Sterling,
VA, desperately awaiting a foster / or permanent home.
She is good with other cats. Since she cannot readily defend herself she needs a home where she is the only cat or the cats will not post a threat to her. She cannot maintenance feed. She doesn't need a lot, just love and affection, and a home where someone can monitor her feeding. [HART will provide the special diet, but she cannot maintenance fed. She must be fed, and then have the food must be removed when she is done.] If you can help please let HART know ASAP! Email or phone at (703) 691-HART.
On Saturday, May 18th, between 1:00pm and 1:15pm EST my 10-month-old, female golden retriver puppy was abducted from our 9 foot concrete enclosed back patio in south philadelphia/center city philadelphia.
Hope is 45 lbs (lanky, still has not filled out), non-spayed, seziure disorder effected puppy, but otherwise perfect example the of golden retriever breed.
I have assembled a website with important details about her theft, news of current status and with a recent photo of Hope.
I have covered a 10 square block radius with posters (over 10,000 since
5/19), direct u.s mailed 572 vets, shelters and clinics within a 40 mile
radius from where she was taken
It took 6 days just to get the police to begin investigating this case and even then it was sadly only at the request of a prominent local polititian I had a chance meeting with. Now that the police are investigating there are further complications, see her site for more details at http://www.pcdoctor-inc.net/hope/.
Please if you think you have seen Hope or are in possession of her contact us ASAP (info on site) If you have not seen her but know anyone who works with animals, please foward this email to them.
His name is Rudy. He is a handsome three year old Shep/Akita mix about 65 lb. He is happy and fun. He is good with dogs and cats but would preferably be an only pet. Only because I think he is happier with not having to share the attention, he is NOT aggressive.
He is good with kids but plays too rough for really young ones, but he REALLY likes kids. He is UTD on vacc including bordatella and lyme, heartworm negative and on preventative and he is applied with Frontline each month. He is housebroken and very people oriented. He has been in a kennel for eight months.
Why is he special needs, you ask...? He is blind as a bat! He was born without retinas in both eyes, he was seen by a specialist. He doesn't know he's blind though, he has always been that way and doesn't know there is a world with sight. There is no fear or anxiety associated with his blindness. He is obedience trained too. He really needs a home. He has so much love to give. His owner abandoned him on the streets...literally! A friend of mine found him wandering the roads of Long Beach. See his photo that is attached. If interested, please contact Kathy at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her @ 631-360-7575 Tues - Sat 8 am - 4 pm.

Closes, Pets Need Homes
A place that has helped sick and abandoned animals made its own plea for help Friday.
Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary, 11659 Jones Road, will lose its lease on Wednesday.
"We are having to place all of the animals in foster care or homes. As of right now, we don't know where we are going to be," said Heather Schmidt, with the Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary.
The no-kill shelter has been operating in northwest Houston for 12 years. It has a reputation for giving unwanted pets a second chance.
"These animals are so loved and cared for. And if we can't find someone to sponsor this shelter, they are not going to exist," said Elizabeth Crunk, a volunteer.
Every animal at the shelter was saved from other shelters where they were going to use euthanasia, according to shelter volunteers.
The non-profit organization hopes that corporate sponsors and citizens will donate money so it can move to a new facility to continue its work.
Anyone who would like to help the Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary should call (281) 807-PETS or visit www.noahs-ark-sanctuary.org.
Of Pets Need New Home
Forty-six companion animal in Escondido (CA) need a new home. They belonged to Norma Henry, 62, a woman who died suddenly a few weeks ago, and didn't leave instructions for what she wanted done with the animals. Her neighbor, Mary Miller has been taking care of the animals.
"She spent a lot of money medicating them and they went to the vet regularly," Miller said of Henry. "The cats are all healthy. She fed them, they always had water."
Henry had taken in most of the animals because no one else would. Many have special needs, or are simply getting old. The animals are now up for adoption. The Rancho Coastal Humane Society is working to place many of the dogs and cats.
"It looks like all of them will be placed, and make it into a new life, and get some good loving here in the future," said Jim Silveira, of the Humane Society. Getting the pets ready for adoption could cost the Humane Society about $2,000.
You can help through donations or by adopting the pets:
