I am joining Petfinder.com to celebrate Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable-Pet Week September 17 – 23. We’re urging people to adopt the pets who are usually left behind at shelters. These animals are passed over because of breed, age or color prejudice, because they have special needs or because, for one reason or another, they just aren’t what most people think of as ‘perfect.’
I’m going to be featuring special pets from my local city shelter this week, with the hope that between me and my readers sharing them we’ll be able to get them adopted.
So let’s get to it!
Black dogs are always difficult to place, but just check out my man, Edward! OK, he’s a 40 lb. black dog – actually a black and white Labrador Retriever mix. (How great a mix is that!?) And he’s unaltered, so he’ll need to be neutered, alright (but they do that right there at the shelter). Oh, and he’s an old pup – about 14, they think. I know. Edward’s no spring chicken, but just look at this sweet boy.
Do you know anyone who might take Edward in and let him live out his twilight years a happy dog? You, maybe? The alternative, most likely, will be euthanization.
Let’s do what we can to give Edward a chance!
He’s been at the East Valley Animal Shelter in the San Fernando Valley, in L.A., since Sept. 13th. If someone is interested, Mom will go meet Edward, take some video, and give you the full scoop. We’ll be happy to help with adoption fees and transport within southern/central California to a vetted good home.
