Message: Shirsa Needs A Home!  
Shirsa-EXT. URGENT
Dog

Pit Bull Terrier

Size: Medium
Age: Young
Sex: Female
ID:

Notes: THIS IS A COURTESY LISTING.

Shirsa desperately needs a foster or permanent home by August 10. Her family is moving to Ireland and have recently found out that if they take her with them (as they were planning), she will be euthanized after her quarantine period ... due to her breed being banned in Ireland. They are desperately trying to find her a new home.

Shirsa is 2 and 1/2 years old. She is spayed, heartworm negative and up-to-date on all her shots. She is great with people. There were no small kids in her house (everybody teen and above), but there is a neighbor girl about 7 year old that she adores. Has been to basic obedience as a pup. Seems to be afraid of smaller dogs but likes to play with bigger dogs but has not been around other dogs much in general. Not sure about cats as there are none in the house.

If you are interested or know someone that is or can foster until a "permanent" home is found please email Kathy at: kathy.genuardi@verizon.net. Shirsa only has a couple of days!

[Mason County Animal Welfare League this is the shelter that had the fire last year...]

CROSSPOST:
Email Kate at mcrescues@yahoo.com to inquire about animals.

There are now 82 cats and rapidly approaching 120 dogs at the shelter.

These long timers need a place to go ASAP! If we don't get some of these out soon, we're going to be out of time! We're already doubling/tripling up in kennels. HELP!

{ else }   Alert: Urgent Alert; Rescuers and Transport Desperately Needed in West Virginia....  
Focus:Animal Welfare
Action Request:Volunteer
Location:United States

The following is a repost; please, if there is anything you can do, use the contact information provided, as I am not involved with these cases. Thank you so much for your time and help!

The following message contains 3 individual situations in West Virginia, all in desperate need of rescuers, homes and transporters. Please see if you may be able to help or crosspost. Thank you!

THIS IS NOT A STATE WITH LOTS OF RESCUES AND RESOURCES; HELP IS NEEDED IN THE FORM OF DONATIONS, TRANSPORTS AND RECEIVING SHELTERS AND RESCUES.



West Virginia:

Alert #1 A 100 dog/40 cat hoarding case in Roane County:

Alert # 1: Urgent Hoarding Situation in Rural West Virginia

Approximately 95 dogs and 40 cats
County with few resources for handling a case this size.
(Please be sure to see the all the way below pictures
to see how urgent this hoarding case is)

Roane County, WV
Put together by Eric Rice: ericrice3@comcast.net

1/3 of the dogs are in this barn, tethered.


A rescuer in West Virginia has gotten in over her head and local authorities have had to step in. She is cooperating and wants the dogs to good no kill facilities who will be kind enough to update her on the dogs as they are adopted. This is a hard thing for her to do as she loves each of these dog and feeds the dogs before herself. However, she knows things have gotten to a point that she needs help.
She is scared to death that any of her dogs will have to be put down and we have told her that we won’t let her down for her cooperation.
She spends every dime of her money on them and feeds them before herself.

Approximately 95 dogs and 40 cats. Most dogs have been tethered for some time and others are in a very, very dirty barn. The farm is not sanitary with rats and
snakes in the high grass.
THEY NEED TO GET MOVED TO RESCUES NOW and the cost of transport is becoming a huge problem.

Sheriff and Local Animal Control are very cooperative and seeking YOUR help.
This is a rural location with high euthanasia rates as it is, so they need help moving these dogs. They need to know that support is on the way and that light is at the end of the tunnel.
 
The goal is not to euthanize any of these animals,
nor the ones currently being held in their town facility but we all know how things can spin out of control with this many animals to care for an deal with…

Sue Skaskiw and others from Vermont are familiar with the rescuer as she used to live in Vermont. They are trying to coordinate efforts to help this situation. However, TRANSPORT is becoming a big issue and it is going to cost money. We are also trying to get spay and neuter done locally at a good cost. Everyone knows what it costs to try to deal with 100 dogs and 40 cats and we need help.

Please note that one of the biggest problems is funding for relocation. At least $10,000+ needs raised to get these animals to receiving shelters in Colorado, Vermont, Maine and others. (Or transport donated) and get vetting done.

SHELTERS, FOSTERS, RESCUES, TRANSPORT WALKERS ARE STILL DESPERATLY NEEDED FOR ALL 3 SITUATIONS IN WV.

Can your group help walk dogs (transport walkers) on stops on the way to the North East or Colorado? Can you receive animals? Pick up and transport animals? Meet a larger transport vehicle and deliver a smaller number of animals from that transport to another NO KILL shelter or rescue? The animals will be coming up to the North East, Colorado, and New Jersey.

See Pictures Below (this is but a few of the near 100 dogs plus cats)
“This is Helen’s Pole Barn. This is the building she was wanting to move into. I think she has a hand pump in this building and this is where she gets her water.
The sadness in these dogs eyes wanted to make you cry.” Sandy Bush – Roane County Animal Shelter Director






SEE THE SECOND AND 3RD ALERTS FOR WEST VIRGINIA IN THE COMMENTS. 2 MORE DESPERATE SITUATIONS. CLICK COMMENTS.

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP, ERIC

Then the Mason County Shelter that was destroyed by fire now has over 200 dogs at the local fairgrounds and just 3 part time volunteers. A third hoarding case in Hampshire County, WV has 40 dogs plus cats. (all described below) That is 350 dogs that are in situations outside “normal” animal welfare issues and a state in crisis.

Notes from shelter scout “Sparky” was turned in because the owners were moving. He has been kept as an outdoor dog and has received no training. He is very friendly and was talking up a storm. He is so full of energy that he
would probably have a blast doing lots of fun training sessions. He is in Cage #9.

Notes:
Hi, My name is Sam. I am a very lovable, laid back kind of guy. I like
to play, eat treats, snuggle, eat treats, run around and be silly
playing with one of my toys, and eat treats! YEP...I LOVE TREATS!!!
Somehow, I ended up without a home, and left to wonder the streets and
try to find my own food. That was hard to do, and I would sometimes get
sick from eating the food that I found. I was very thankful that a man
that works here at the kennel found me and brought me here. Then I
found out that not everybody that gets saved from the streets gets to
go to a new home. That's very scary to me! I spend most of my days
wondering and worrying if my life stops here, or will I ever be
adopted. The people here are nice to me, but I miss the life of a
loving home. I know if you meet me in person, you will love me
instantly. I'm just that kind of guy! Then maybe you will take me home
with you so that we can love each other for a long, long, time. If you
can find it in your heart to come see me, I know that you will give me
a second chance at the life full of love that we both are looking for!
Thank You So Much, SAM This dog is in a Kill shelter, and only has a
few days to live . Please act quickly if you would like to save it's
Life! Please call 352-486-5138 A.S.A.P.
