Furry Friday 3/16/12

Ready for another addition of Furry Friday? I hope so, because I’m going to feature TEN furry friends today.

The first feature is Milo, a Belgian Shephard /Sheepdog Mix from OK Save a Dog in Prague,  Oklahoma. Milo looks like a sweetheart. If you want information on Milo visit his post  and contact OK Save a Dog!

The next dog is Bailee, a Labrador Retriever, from New Hampshire Humane Society in Laconia, New Hampshire. I love how Bailee is smiling for the camera! What a sweetheart! She reminds me of my Maddie Girl. Her post says she is a senior but has lots of energy. I can attest to that if she is anything like my almost 11 year old lab, Maddie. Visit her post or contact New Hampshire Humane Society for more info on sweet Bailee.

I am now going to feature some dogs without much information. This sometimes happens when dogs are first posted or at high-turnover shelters. I’m not saying these shelters are high-kill shelters, just explaining  possible reasons why no information is given.  Often times, these are the dogs that need homes the fastest. A sure sign is that no name is given to the dog simply a number.

Here are some sweet dogs that need homes ASAP. First, Spartacus,  Cty, #1819. Visit post or contact shelter!

Next, Ruby from Horry County Humane Society in Conway, South Carolina.

Visit post or contact shelter.

Here is another Baylie. This Baylie is also from Horry County Humane Society. Visit post or contact shelter.

Just to let you know, when I searched South Carolina there was 173,450 pets available for adoption. No, let me rephrase that, 173,450 DOGS  available for adoption. Now, working in animal rescue for forever I know it is near impossible to find homes for all these dogs. It’s the truth. I’ve visited a few of the shelters in South Carolina and I can attest that the conditions are not like shelters up north. They are downright horrible. After talking to staff in a few of the shelters, I found out they get a lot more animals than they can find homes for. They euthanize quite a few. This can all be stopped if owners simply get their pets spayed and neutered. Really, this simple operation saves millions of lives!!!

Ok! Enough of my ranting. Let’s see some kitties.

Fluffy is a one and a hair year old domestic short-hair kitty from W.A.R.S in Myrtle Beach, SC. Her owner is facing possible eviction so she needs a home ASAP. She looks like a sweet little kitty. Visit her post for more information.

I love Russian Blue kitties, I think they are so elegant looking. Here is Carla from Humane Society of Central Arizona in Payson, Arizona. Visit her post or contact the shelter for more information on beautiful Carla.

Look at this beautiful, huge, fluff ball! This is Sebastian from Australian Shepherd Rescue in Orem, Utah. He is a ragdoll kitty. His post states “he is two years old and super sweet”. Visit post or rescue for more information.

Here is Jefftrow from Small Animal Rescue Group, Chamois, MO. He was rescued at two and a half weeks of age and his post states “he is spoiled and he knows it”. Visit his post or the rescue group site for more info on Jefftrow.

Last animal for this week is Bumble a white kitty from Critter Cavalry in Franklin, Tennessee. He is deaf, so he will need some special attention but  according to his post he has adapted fine to his foster home. Please visit his post or site for more information on Bumble.

That’s it for Furry Friday this week. As always, this series of posts is in no way sponsored by any of the shelters or rescues or Petfinder.com. Simple my way of showing the world that there are so many animals in need of homes. If you are a shelter or rescue group and would like your animals featured in one of my posts, I’d be more than happy to do so. Simply e-mail laurabellesboutique@hotmail.com

  1. You’re very right about shelters in the south. I live in North Carolina & have lived in the south all my life. I got involved with the Stokes County Humane Society last summer about a month after my beloved senior Pyrie mix Rosie died. I’ve been fostering ever since – mainly puppies (including two litters of nursing puppies complete with moms) and of the two adult dogs I’ve fostered – we adopted the first, who was a poor timid street dog (the turn-around she’s made in the ten months I’ve had her is phenomenal, I swear she knows we saved her life, and she’s discovered love, and she’s a different dog!), and I’m still fostering the second and will keep her until she has surgery to correct bi-lateral luxating patella. Both of those bitches and all combined 17 of their puppies would have been euthanized, because the shelter in our poor rural county is small, overcrowded, and getting worse by the day. We don’t have enough foster homes, either, and the ones we have are past full, so we were forced to the painful decision of suspending our traditional rescue-and-foster program in favor of a partnership with North Shore Animal League in Port Washington, NY – we rescue puppies, quarantine, vet, vaccinate, and love them for a few short weeks, and then we put them on a transport to NSAL’s adoption center in NY & NSAL makes sure they go to wonderful homes – see my blog post titled Operation: Puppy Love for a more in-depth look at what we’re doing in Stokes County in an effort to save lives. I really hope my blog will help us get the publicity we need to attract more foster families so we can resume our traditional rescue-and-foster program along with growing Operation: Puppy Love (that name, btw, is a “working title” – we’re working on a better one, LOL).

    Thank you so much for going out of your way to feature animals at the high-kill shelters in the south – because most of the shelters in the south ARE high-kill, and until people learn that 1) pets aren’t disposable and 2) pets should be spayed/neutered, that’s not going to change.
