Someone who truly cares …

24 Feb

Every now and then you meet someone who REALLY cares.

Kerry Moyers-Horton is such a person.

Not a lot of rescuers would bother with a cat like this, with both Feline Leukemia and FIV:

Franklin

Kerry, who runs the Pet Placement Center in Chattanooga,  wrote this about a cat named Franklin on Feb. 22:

We rescued a 10 month old cat from Cleveland Animal Shelter last Friday. He is a handsome, sleek, solid black young man with glowing eyes and a lively attitude. On the surface, he seems perfectly healthy. He is at the vet being neutered today. Sadly,  Franklin tested positive for both Feline Leukemia and FIV. If one wasn’t bad enough, having both conditions immensely limits the possible homes for Franklin. But we will not give up!  He deserves love as much as any other cat in our care. We will find the right home for him so he can enjoy the rest of his life.  If you have any ideas or know of anyone who might be willing to offer Franklin a place to call home, please let me know.

The dogs we helped save today …

Just a few from the Georgia / Chattanooga end this weekend, but they made up in size what they lacked in numbers.

Wait till I get out of here ...

Dog rescue - ya gotta love it

On the road to rescue

Loading 'em up

This was a Mobile Mutts transport,  transporting rescue dogs from high-kill animal control facilities  in the South to fosters and no-kill shelters in the Midwest.  Special thanks to Paulette, Barbara, Beth, Taffy and always to coordinators Lynn and Chrissy in Minneapolis.

Who needs a snuggle buddy?

If you know anyone who might be interested in a handsome,  snuggly,  bobtail boy with FIV,  please send them my way.  He will have a link on the Pet Placement Center adoptable pets page soon.
 

Dakota is a gorgeous, solid black Bobtail who is friendly, intelligent, and unfortunately, FIV positive. Feline Immunodeficiency Virus is a manageable disease that is frequently misunderstood; many FIV positive cats live long happy, healthy lives with proper care. Dakota is as healthy as can be and shows absolutely no signs of illness.

For cats like Dakota with no other symptoms, and otherwise generally good health, management of FIV involves a proper diet and prompt, aggressive treatment of infections and other conditions as they crop up throughout life. Your veterinarian will work with you to establish a plan to keep Dakota healthy. Dakota will need to be an inside only cat and flea control is important, as fleas transmit a number of other parasites and flea bites themselves can become infected.

Dakota is strikingly handsome and genial. He is a big, flirty, cuddly bear of a cat. He will shower his guardian with affection and will thrive when that affection is returned.

Catoosa County, GA Pound Records Reveal Disturbing Information

 

This animal control facility is in Ringgold, GA, just south of Chattanooga.

This dog is dead and there was a rescuer who wanted it:

Makes you want to throw up. Or throw up on somebody.

 

You should know about this …

13 Feb

Sometimes you come across something you didn’t know was there, and it’s serendipitously wonderful.

I recently found a blog aimed at saving  Tennessee dogs on death row.

It’s called (go figure) Tennessee Death Row Dogs.

Take a look.

Fall in love.

Save a life.
