4 Dogs, 2 Days to Live! Please Help! (NW Indiana)
I just wanted to let you know that neither Otis nor Drago have received a rescue commitment to keep them from being PTS on Friday These poor boys were left behind in an abandoned house to fend for themselves and they now have a second chance to find a family to love them and NEVER leave them behind....I hope that someone will offer to give them that chance before it is too late! Also, I received a call from the ACO late this afternoon that yet another sweet senior dog, Sheba, was surrendered by her owner today and MUST find rescue by Friday or she will be PTS. Please let me know ASAP if you are able to help any of these 3 dogs from being put down tomorrow!

All of these dogs are located at a high-kill animal control facility in NW IN. This facility does not do public adoptions, so their only hope is to be saved by A RESCUE....these dogs can not be released to individuals. If these dogs are not rescued by their release date, they will be PTS! Please take a look at the attached pictures and
 as soon as possible. PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE SHELTER!

Even if you can't help....please cross-post to other rescues that you think may be able help. If cross-posting, please include ENTIRE post so that people do not contact the shelter. We have very limited transport resources, but will do our best to help get them to the Chicagoland area.


SHEBA

Sheba is an 8 year old female American Bulldog. This poor old girl was surrendered by her owner to the shelter today and she must find a rescue commitment immediately or she will be PTS Friday afternoon. She is a very big girl that weighs about 80 pounds. She is extremely friendly with people and her owner that dropped her off said that she is very good with children and with other animals. Please help this poor girl if you can...she doesn't deserve to live with a family her whole life just to be dropped off to die when she didn't do anything wrong except be owned by a STUPID person!!
RELEASED: NOW!!!



OTIS

Otis is a Pit Bull mix. He is a male that was found in an abandoned house with the other inmate Drago. He appears to be about 1-2 years old. He is medium sized and weighs around 45-50 pounds. He has a very pretty light colored brindle coat with a very cute black face. He is a very nice and friendly boy with people and just an all-around happy boy that does not stop wagging his tail! When he came outside to meet me and some of the other dogs, he didn't seem to mind any of them and did very well around them.
RELEASED: FRIDAY 5/15/09



DRAGO

Drago is a Pit Bull possibly Bulldog mix. He is a male that was found in an abandoned house with the other inmate Otis. He appears to be about 1-2 years old. He is a very BIG and stocky boy! He probably weighs at least 75 pounds. Although he is a big intimidating looking boy, he is actually very sweet and friendly with people. When he came out to visit the other dogs, he didn't seem to mind any of them and even stopped to check out a very small 10 pound dog that he just sniffed...even so, I wouldn't recommend a home with small animals because of his very large size. Also, he has a broken toenail on his front left paw and it is sticking straight up in the air....ouch!
RELEASED: FRIDAY 5/15/09


FELICIA

Felicia looks like she might be a Yellow Lab/Terrier mix. She is a female that was found as a stray and appears to be fairly young still, about 1 year old. She is a medium sized dog that has a petite frame and probably only weighs about 40-45 pounds. This poor girl is pretty nervous of being at the shelter and she is a bit timid of people. She will come up to you very slowly crouching down, but wagging her tail the whole time....she acts like she is very afraid that you are going to hurt her. I am sure that some positive reinforcement with have her trusting people in no time! She does not seem to mind the other dogs.
