View Full Version : $40 Dog in Ohio will be PTS

09-26-2006, 08:38 AM
There is a beautiful Border Collie mix in a shelter in Ohio. He is at one of the WORST shelters. Most dogs never get back out of the door there. They don't euthanize humanely.

What kills me even more is this guy looks JUST like Molly. Who can save him for me? :(

Collie Mix

Size: Medium
Age: Adult
Gender: Male

Notes: This dog weighs 56lbs. Our adoption fee is $40.00 which includes a dog license. Our facility accepts CASH ONLY! If you would like this dog you may place a request/hold in writing at the facility for the dog. After the dog has been here for 3 business days (not including the day it was brought in) you may come in at 10:00am and adopt the dog. Be advised we allow multiple request/hold on the same dog. This way if the first request/hold doesn’t show the second request/hold can adopt the dog, etc. All of the dogs are strays; therefore we have no background history on the dog’s behavior or health issues. Every dog that is adopted should be taken straight to the vet and kept separate from any other animals that you may have. If you have any questions regarding this dog or any other animal at our facility please call us @ (330)643-2845.

That sounds like such a crappy place. Poor dog :(

I know everyone always says this, but if I could take him, I honestly would. Unfortunately i'm in the UK, but I'll certainly pray for him.

Do you want to adopt him?
I can try to help if you do.

I sent that link to 6 rescues in that area.

Adopt him? I wish. My parents won't even look at dogs anymore.

I'm just hoping he gets adopted or fostered... this shelter is NOT rescue friendly. :(

this shelter is NOT rescue friendly. :(

That's why I e-mailed rescues near them that save animals from places like this. I'll let you know as soon as I hear anything back form anyone of them!

That was very nice. :) It's things like this that remind me why I like Pet Talk. Thanks Angie and Jess.

Good luck, Angie & Tess. I hope this boy can get into a rescue asap! I checked with a border collie rescue in Tiffin OH but they won't take mixes. :(

Any word back yet, Amy?

(My name is Angie ;) )

I've only heard back from one rescue and they said they can not get him.

Paws crossed that I hear back from one of the other ones!!

Well, I'm glad and surprised to be saying it appears he is still at the shelter. Any word from other rescues yet?

No, I never heard back from the other rescues.

Anything? What about a breed specific rescue group?

Indian Summers Border Collie Rescue is full....and this shelter is not rescue friendly.. :(
