I just got off the phone with the shelter! He is there, and he needs a rescue or placement. PLEASE if you can help, call and ask for Michelle!!!

864-260-4151

Hurry! They don't know how much time he has. If someone will adopt him and hang onto him for a few days, it could buy him time. Worst case we could bring him down here.

Do we have any information on this guy (good w/ others)? I could foster until next weekend (10/16) if needed.

I just tried calling Michelle to see if any more information - she was not available and the person answering the phone did not have much information to give. I have left my name & # and would be willing to help try and pull/foster/and-or transport.

Marjory - if we could work it out where you could pull and we figure out a meeting place, that would be great. Looks like Anderson is about 2-1/2-3 hours from me when I am at the farm.

Poor boy

Poor boy-what a sad face!

Thank God he has you gals working to save him!!

I would keep calling and calling.

Is there anyway to call the Golden Ret. Rescues?
Is Foothills the closest one?

DID YOU EMAIL THIS EMAIL AT THE SHELTER: [email protected] http://www.petfinder.com/petnote/displaypet.cgi?petid=14808474
HERE IS WHAT IT SAYS!!!!

Printer friendly Email a friend Enlarge photo More About 911000 BusterWhat a regal dog!!! This boy is named Buster and he's 9 years old. He was picked up as a stray but his owner never came for him. Poor boy!! He's very sweet and needs a retirement home now.

NOTE: All dogs MUST be spayed or neutered before leaving the shelter. Please understand that the dog that you choose will be scheduled for surgery after you adopt them and ready for pickup after 1:30PM the day of their surgery. If a dog on this site has already been altered, there will be a REDUCED ADOPTION FEE note in the dog's description.



We have chosen Kuranda dog beds for our shelter because they are so good for our dogs. We still don't have enough for all of our kennels. If you would like to donate a bed so another dog can sleep in proper comfort, please click here.

911000 Buster is up-to-date with routine shots.

Contact Midlands??? What other SC rescues have been contacted? Actually, if you contact someone with the National Golden Retriever Rescue, they can put out the word a lot faster and wider...

No I don't think that Foothills said they would take him.

I did not contact foothills - I don't know who did. I have left a message for GRRLC who is a SC rescue but have not heard back from anyone.

I have left a message at the shelter for Michelle to call; I have also e-mailed Michelle at the e-mail address that Karen posted. I have not heard back from anyone yet.

I am about 30 miles from Anderson and have been to the shelter in the past (dog shopping).
I can pull and drive the first leg of a transport if needed. I could probably arrange to kennel him somewhere for a few days if needed, but that would be a little more difficult.

Jealous1 - if you can foster I will pull and transport him for you.
Let me know. I will not be at work tomorrow so won't receive e-mails until thursday.

Buster is at the Anderson County Animal shelter (I looked it up on Goggle) and the hours of operation are:
Monday thru Friday 11:00 am - 4:30 pm Saturday 11:00 am - 4:00 pm Sunday CLOSED

I don't believe anyone has heard back from foothills. they are a local GR rescue group. I don't mind pulling and transporting, but I can't keep him.

I love old dogs the best and 4/5 of mine in the last 8 years have been older guys from the shelter (the only odd man out is a BassettX I found as a starving puppy).

My current older rescue is Copper and he has done a number on my wallet this year with the splenectomy, stomach tumor, pancreatitis, etc. (>$5000) and I really just can't afford another older guy. I must save all my "extra" money in case Copper needs it you see.

Anyway, my offer stands to pull and transport. Just let me know how I can help.
I will also e-mail Foothills Golden Retriever Rescue. It might not be a bad idea for a number of us to send them an e-mail.

Oh dear he does look sad. Kimm sent me a note on him. I am with Midlands and though we are full and very low on funds Mary does have a soft spot for seniors. Do let me know if Foothills can't take him. Anderson is about 3 hours from me. I know Foothills always takes in seniors also once they know about them.
