Dear Jesus, God created 'Smiley' to give love, and encouragement. Please send a family, the RIGHT family, to the shelter so they can adopt this SPECIAL dog, and THANK YOU! In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, please breathe on Smiley!! In your PRECIOUS Name I pray. Amen! Thank you Jesus! Thank you so much for telling eveyone about Smiley's situation, Sophia. May God Bless You for posting.

No healthy animals should be put down, they are here as life is a God given gift to every being! We as humans do not have the right to take a life from a being! It is murder & we will account to God in the end time for our actions. I pray that Smiley gets a loving forever home in time. Thanks Sophia for posting her story!

Please don't let her die~~she is so precious. Can't the shelter extend her time if she doesn't find a home soon or can't they foster her out to a loving family who might end up wanting to keep her??? PLEASE, I beg you, don't let her die. This breaks my heart~~what a beautiful face and a beautiful girl.

Doug Bond 2 days ago −







Great news! Honey has been rescued! As it turns out, it was not the home that Danielle, Paul and many others had been working on, but a completely different one. I was just told by both my contact at the Orange County Animal Shelter and Danielle (she was kind enough to call and let me know, as well) that Honey has been rescued and will be released to her new home tomorrow (she has to be "fixed" and get her shots today before they can release her). Alas, I was not needed, but thanks to all of the efforts, calls, e-mails and compassion of so many, this smiling dog has found a good home. Thank you to ALL of you! Too many to name, but you all know who you are. And to everyone: thanks for caring, and remember that their are thousands of other dogs and cats who need rescuing every day and face the same situation Honey was facing. Please spay an neuter your pets, and please keep doing whatever you can to help those who need rescuing. Thank you so much for your kind words and help. Honey will never know, but she had an army of loving individuals fighting for her, and now she's has a loving furever home and family.

Having just adopted another rescue dog I can say that we must all do our bit to protect life. Give a home to a needy animal. You will receive so much more than you give.

My prayers go out to this lovely pup and I hope there will be a very happy future for the dog and its new owner.

"WHO CAN ACTUALLY CONFIRM that Smiley is SAFE, OTB and spayed as earlier reported in above thread.. I am not doing the happy dance until I see bonafide proof that she has made it out and safe.. SO many slip thru and end up dead cuz everyone else thought.... IF a rescue pulled and got her out.. Then why is there NO update from them.. IF she was adopted by a private party, can anyone with connections to the shelter verify that and update here plz.. WE HAVE ALL BEEN netwroking her and are all interested in her outcome.. BUT i have also seen so many end up dead when *A HOLD* was placed only for them to never show up - thus falling thru the cracks and PTS.."
