(Madison, 12/14/16) Today I visited the Dane County Humane Society (DCHS) to evaluated a small dog named Rocki who is in need of rescue. This poor girl is a bit overwhelmed in the busy space of the Shelter. Only two years old, she has had three litters of puppies – pretty much all she’s done in her life. I’m glad her “family” surrendered her so that she can get a chance at a better life! She’s very inquisitive, yet very scared in this environment. In a calm room, she’ll come to get pets and love very willingly!
While there, I asked about other dogs needing help from Rescue. So began my tour of the kennels and meeting some really amazing and sweet dogs. I love that DCHS does everything they can to give the dogs a safe and loving experience at the Shelter, but with many dogs, it’s still very stressful so many don’t “show” well when the general public comes in looking for the perfect dog to add to their family.
I”m asking – no I’m begging anyone reading this – to please consider fostering one of these sweet dogs thru NorthStar WI , or even adopt one. Many are available for direct adoption from DCHS!
Below are two of nine dachshunds that were recently surrendered . All of the dachshunds are between the ages of 9 and 12. Seniors get very little attention in shelters because people are afraid to adopt an old dog. But come on, small dogs like dachshunds can live well into 15 plus years!
From what I can see, all of the Dachshunds I met had nice coats, moved well and were happy to greet me. Please consider helping a senior dog! They need love and affection too!
I kept walking and met more dogs that need our help! And there are 20 more dogs coming to DCHS tomorrow from a program that moves dogs from high-kill shelters to more populated areas where they have a much better chance of being saved, rescued and or adopted.
Here are few more pups that would love your help!
PLEASE consider helping however you can! – Here are things you can do now!
- Share this post!
- Offer to foster one or more of these dogs for the holidays with NorthStar (send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Send a donation to DCHS, (http://www.giveshelter.org/)
- Adopt one of these beautiful creatures directly from DCHS!
If you want any more information on a specific dog – I’d be happy to go and evaluate, get more photos and video and gather more information!
