Georgy, who weighs in just shy of three pounds, has been at the New York Animal Care and Control facility since May 31, and right now, she is in the "super urgent" photo album on the Urgent Death Row Dogs Facebook page...Georgy's "due out" date is on Tuesday, June 3.

Noted and shared. I have fully networked for her on 5 Pinterest animal boards, in one very large animal lovers community on Google Plus, Facebook and Twitter. Her Facebook link almost sounded as if someone might be interested, but there has been no confirmation. She is not safe though until she is out of the building! I urge everyone to please network for Georgy NOW! Her time is almost up ~

Chihuahuas are wonderful little dogs. I have a rescue chihuahua and she's the light of my life.

Would we do this to a homeless person? Of course not! Why then to an animal that is currently down on their luck?

The GOOD news there is A LOT of activity on the little one's page...there IS hope!
But keep sharing and praying...maybe there will be more than one miracle and the other babies on death row will be adopted too.
(I could not bring myself to look at their photos...I feel guilty as hell but I am very fragile lately)

Take care friends.

According to FB posts, someone is working hard to rescue or adopt her right now and is having trouble getting through to someone. He's apparently willing to drive to get her. I hope this works. I would hate to see this precious pup not make it. *cross your fingers for Georgy!

According to fb..."New Hope Partners are rescue groups. If you still want to adopt her, you can ask the shelter to give your contact info to the rescue that saved her. HOWEVER, for now we should keep on sharing until Urgent Part 2 - Urgent Death Row Dogs confirms her status as the shelter has been wrong before. TY!" about 2 hrs ago

I hope that the poor little thing finds a forever home. I have copied this to friends living in the US. Sadly there are so many dogs looking for a forever home, we support 2 local (no kill) shelters, the demand for places within them for dogs is huge. We must educated people not to demand a puppy while there are so many shelter dogs that have so much love to give, just like the one currently snoozing by my side.

FYI: Petharbor is showing that she has been adopted, but Facebook still seems unsure because she is still listed on the kill list.

I hope the good news is true! Shame on the ASPCA that spends mega money on tear jerking commercials on TV, showing animals waiting for adoption- and not helping out the high kill shelters find a way to get more animals out alive!

This is the new Facebook page with information on Georgy who is name been named Ginny.

Poor Ginny has some huge mammary tumors from not having been spayed. There is a picture showing them. Very sad that someone would let their dog get in this condition without doing anything but finally dumping her.

I believe they're taking donations. Not sure, I haven't read the whole post yet. I'm just going by what's been posted on the original Facebook page.
