Ernestine is the 1-year-old hound dog (that doesn’t like to hunt) which had only 1 day remaining on her Doomsday Clock at the kill shelter she was housed in. She was featured on the website Dogs in Danger! and I highlighted her, along with two other homeless dogs, on my blog in the article entitled Seeking Love On Valentine’s Day. I don’t know about you, but Earnestine’s picture really touched my heart. She looked so sad and so very lonely. The reason her clock was ticking down was simply that there were zero kennels remaining at the shelter for dogs that were more likely to be adopted. You see, Earnestine’s shy and quiet temperament got in her way of bonding with a potential family. Today, I cried when I saw she has been saved! Knowing that, makes my efforts in raising awareness for homeless dogs so worthwhile!
Please, get your pets spayed and neutered and when looking for a furry family member, rescue, don’t buy!
Herbie, who I also chose to highlight in Seeking Love On Valentine’s Day may have found his furever family… the adoption is currently pending. He is the 8-year-old Labrador-Husky mix that was found wandering the streets of Lisbon, Ohio, abandoned by his family at Christmastime. Let’s say a prayer that this potential new family will love him and take care of him for the rest of his days!
Jolly, the female chow chow is still waiting to be saved. She needs someone to fall in love with her despite her special needs and shortened life span. Here is her information again:
“My name is Jolly! I was dropped off at the pound on 12/20 and I have been here ever since. When I got here, they discovered that I am heartworm positive. Around here that is a very bad thing, but, everyone loves me here. I love kids and people in general. I like to play ball and cuddle, too. Please, consider coming to meet me! I will be a loving and loyal companion, with all of my heart, for as long as I live. OOOXXX Jolly”
Jolly is currently at the Toccoa-Stephens County Humane Shelter. Get more information at Jolly’s Info page Remember her, she’s a beauty!
