Just got home from receiving the dogs from a high-kill shelter down south and its 5:00 in the morning!!! We got a Dingo X mom with 9 beautiful puppies, wonderful Lab X named Luke (my fave) , a Norwich Terrier, Lhasa, Beagle, 3 little wire haired terrier guys (adorable!), Puggle, MinPin Chi X, Schnoodle, and a bunch more awesome little guys...if you are from the NY area and are looking for a new best friend come check 'em out at the SPCA of Westchester! They'll be up for adoption sometime this week!!!
Hi You may have some insight into a problem I have. I live in Bermuda and am a huge (vegan) animal lover. I have been volunterring at the local shelter for years and have watched the number of dogs that come into the shelter declined dramatically. The vast majority of those that do come in are Pits or pit crosses. The problem I, and many others have, is that there are just not enoough rescue dogs to keep up with demand (hooray) but it leads to a problem where people cannot obtain companion animals and so import puppies from the UK, many from less than desirable sources. Added to that there is a large proportion of the population that is ex-pat and so cannot take on a pit-type dog due to various laws worldwide that would prevent them being taken home. It drives me nuts that there are so many dogs dying every day because of a lack of home but do not know how we can manage to adopt from abroad. Do you have any suggestions. I am in the market for another dog and aam dying for a french bulldog but frankly really don't care that much what it is as long as it fits in the family but can't bring myself to buy a dog from a breeder when there are homeless dogs. We areoften asked in the shelter about how to obtain dogs and would love to be able to give more useful advice. Thanks
