Portland, OR – Terry, a handsome dog posted as “in need” just last night, has been given a reprieve. The blind dog will be going to Family Dogs New Life Shelter on Monday.
Terry will be safe until he finds his perfect forever family.
Now, the woman who was trying to secure a safe location for Terry has moved on to another dog in need.
A dog who is also blind, but who is far less “appealing” to most.
The dog in need is named Lucas – he is 12 years of age and has a disability.
At 12 years of age, Lucas is well beyond the days of being considered “stunning”.
However, he is no less worthy.
Lucas was dumped at a shelter on August 13 by his owners. The owners felt that “their house was too big for him” and that he wasn’t receiving enough attention.
Fabulous – so instead, Lucas is in a much smaller housing situation – a stark kennel run at the Edison Animal Shelter in New Jersey.
A kennel run completely unfamiliar to the senior dog. A location which is loud and frightening.
Now Lucas receive attention from a kennel attendant whom he does not know.
Is this truly the best that Lucas’ family could have done for him?
Dumping him at an animal control facility at 12 years of age?
Allowing their family pet to have a questionable future in the hands of strangers?
This is Lucas’ reality – a homeless dog at a shelter. Lucas needs the help of strangers or he will never walk away from his new “home”.
Stats on Lucas:
- 12 years of age
- Pit bull, Male – Neutered
- Good with other dogs
- Good with children
It has been reported that there is a $200 sponsor available to the rescue organization that steps up to assist Lucas in finding a home.
If you can help Lucas, please contact, Barbara at: [email protected] or call the Edison Animal Shelter directly at 732-248-7278.
Those unable to assist directly are asked to please help network this lovely senior boy – please help give him a chance to live out his golden years in comfort.
