Foster or Permanent Home Needed, Please!

Dear Friends,

First, please join me in welcoming our newest members: Tania, Mislene, Stella, Mary and Barb.  Second, thank you to those of you who volunteered to transport a dog to our sanctuary in Mississippi.  Third, please join us this Saturday night at our benefit band concert at One Eyed Jacks on Toulouse Street, from 10 pm to 1.  Admission is only $10.00 and proceeds will support our no-kill sanctuary that is home to 200 formerly abused or orphaned animals.

Also, one of our members, Leah, has sent out a desperate plea to help foster or re-home a dog she is trying to help.  Here is Gummi's story:

Gummi was rescued by me 1 year ago as a puppy. I re-homed him with a neighbor who decided one day that he no longer wanted Gummi and told me to come get him or he would go to the SPCA that evening.

Gummi is a fifty-fifty mix of two pure bred dogs - Wemeraner and German Shepherd. He is pure black, male, roughly 95lbs, neutered, up to date with shots, microchipped, on Trifexis, sweet and energetic - he loves to play tug of war! Gummi is highly intelligent as well as handsome. He was trained to ring a bell on the door handle so you'd definitely know he wants to go out. However, he has severe separation anxiety. He left the litter too soon and did not get enough positive attention within the first month of separation. Therefore he needs someone who has time to spend with him and hopefully another energetic dog so he can play; he should not be in a kennel all day. While playing with dogs he can be a bit rough because he wasn't allowed to play much in fact he wasn't exercised properly at all. He does well in social situations with dogs and people and I believe that this is the key point where he should receive a heavy does of over socialization - otherwise he may turn out to be a very different dog in the future. Bottom line, this is a beautiful and smart dog that just needs the right home to help him grow.

 

If you can help, please contact Leah at[masked]-8988.

 

Many thanks!


Jeff
