Make a Difference to a Dog This Holiday Season

It's that time again. The hustle and bustle, the shopping, the wrapping, the festivities, the decorations, family, friends... the weather!

When you're a shelter dog, you have none of that. As a matter of fact, this is the time of year that your chances of getting just that drops off to just about nothing.

Starting the day after Thanksgiving, the euthanasia list grew from the Manhattan shelter from six dogs to about 20 dogs. And no, they're not cute fluffy golden retrievers and cairn terriers like Toto. They're rottweilers, pitbulls, chows, and other big breeds that are a struggle to get adopted in general.

Yes, we stepped up to the plate as we always do. And no, we didn't have the room in the program (or the money in the bank) to do it. But we did it for the dogs. We have foster homes doubled, tripled and in some cases quintupled to accommodate the dogs we have. And then we added Montana (fka Betsy from our last newsletter), Alyssa, Brady, Derby and Ralph.

Why shouldn't they have a chance at a happly holiday - and the beauty of living their natural living years? So there they are -- in boarding.

For the Love of Dog didn't plan on being the heroes for these dogs -- and we need help to cover their expenses. Here's where you, our dog-loving, rottweiler and pibull-loving readers come in.

Don't let these dogs go without a happy holiday! They NEED YOU!

Since 1998, I have been taking dogs from the Center for Animal Care & Control in New York City. In 2005, we moved 25 dogs into permanent homes from the city. In 2006, we moved 52 dogs into permanent homes from the city. The NYCACC takes in all stray and city impound dogs as well as owner turn ins and averages 3000 animals a month. Owners are allowed 72 hours to reclaim their dog, or the dog becomes available for adoption or may be euthanized. To get these dogs to safety, we need to move them to boarding space. DISCOUNTED boarding space in New York is $25/day. That gets expensive quickly and we need HELP  with it.

~We take several dogs every week. Your continued support is needed. ~

Foster Homes Needed!

Foster homes for rottweilers and bully breed dogs are greatly needed. If you can open your heart to an extra dog, it will be rewarding for you, beyond compare. Apply to foster

Can't foster a dog? Sponsor a kennel run to keep these dogs safe.
