I am a Golden mix, help me! Please, look at my eyes!



More About PTS 11/25 #8656A/C HAS THIS GUY LISTED AS A SHEP CROSS, i ASSUME THEY THINK AUSSIE. HE ALMOST LOOKS LIKE A GOLDEN CROSS IN THE PHOTO - VERY PRETTY BOY. ABOUT 3 YEARS OLD. Please include the tag# with your inquiry for faster service. If you are with a rescue, please include the name of your rescue and 501c3 status in your inquiry.

THIS IS A HIGH KILL SHELTER - ANIMALS WILL BE PUT TO SLEEP ON THEIR PTS DATE AND NEED TO BE CLAIMED BY 5PM THE NIGHT BEFORE THEIR PTS DATE. IF YOU ARE AT ALL INTERESTED IN THIS ANIMAL, PLEASE DON'T HESITATE - THESE ANIMALS LIVES DEPEND ON QUICK ACTION.

Please read the following description of the shelter's policies on pulling non-adoptable animals. If you are not with a 501c3 rescue, you will need to contact someone from Animal League of Gaston County to help you pull the animal.

We are a group of volunteers that try to help the dogs/cats at Gaston County get into rescues and adoptable homes, but we don't work at the shelter and don't usually have a lot of information on the animals (unfortunately). Animal Control employees do not do a thorough behavioral evaluation of the animal or a vet check and we can only guess as to what breed we think the animal might be - practically no animals come into this shelter with pedigrees, so there is no guarantee on animals being a specific or advertised breed. We just try to get their info out so people learn about them.

This animal was not slated for the adoption floor by the Animal Control Kennel person upon intake, so there is no adoption fee for the animal and the animal WILL BE EUTHANIZED on it's PTS (put to sleep) date. This shelter uses a gas chamber. There are many reasons why they are not slated for adoptions (underweight, overweight, shy or scared to be at the kennel (this is the typical reason and most dogs are freaked out by being at the kennel), obvious health issue (dogs and cats are not vetted at all), too old, or the owner says the dog is aggressive or has some sort of issue (this is another very common reason because owners turning animals into the shelter are afraid to admit out loud that they just don't want the animal anymore and make up an excuse as to why they are turning the animal in).

Because this animal was not chosed for adoption, it has to be adopted out through the Animal League of Gaston County or a 501c3 rescue can pull the animal out. This animal can be pulled out of the shelter after 4PM the day before it's euthanize date (the day before the PTS date in the dog's name on petfinder). ALGC will require a vet reference for people not from a 501c3 rescue stating that all pets are up to date on vaccinations, are spayed or neutered and dogs are on heartworm preventative. Adopters are required to get the animal vaccinated and spayed or neutered at their expense within 2 weeks of adopting the animal or by the time the animal is six months old. We have no kennels to house the animals, so they are required to be picked up by their PTS date, else they will be killed.

You can visit the animal anytime before it's PTS/release date at Gaston County Animal Control. The shelter is open daily from 11am - 5pm and the first Sat of the month. There are directions posted on this site: http://www.co.gaston.nc.us/animalcontrol/HoursContactDirections.HTM. Information on the Gaston County Low Cost Spay Neuter Clinic can be found here: http://www.co.gaston.nc.us/animalcontrol/GastonClinic.htm.

Please act quickly to arrange adoption for this animal, they are given very little time before they are euthanized.

Thank you for inquiring.

Poor baby

I just re-emailed all of the Golden ret. rescues in NC and SC. Please, Please, someone save him.
He is adorable and looks so very scared.

THIS POOR BABY:

I just saw this on Craigslist

This is the website to the shelter where the adorable retriever mix dog is being held. The rehoming is free and the organization can give you more details.

The puppy has to be adopted TODAY or it will be put to sleep at 5:00 pm today 11/25/09. so sad.

I don't understand why everyone is obsessed about getting "pure-bred" when there are thousands of dogs that need homes. The pure-breds have also been imbred so much that they are more likely to develop expensive health problems. Due to the genetic variability, the mixes are the healthiest and definitely as cute as any true blood. I guess this society we live in is truly a shallow one, caring mostly about looks, certificates, and symbols of status. In my book, adopting this dog or another that needs a rehome immediately reveals the highest of golden hearts.
Thanks for your time! Have a happy thanksgiving. I'd come get this little booger out myself if I lived closer by and in a house that allowed another dog to live here.

Sandy and I emld. Fostermom to see maybe if Neuse River would take him.
Not sure how far Neuse or Fostermom are from the shelter.
It's good to know that you could take him if need be and someone can get him.
Would you be fostering him for Heidi's Legacy?

I suppose I could. I don't care, really- as long as he gets out of there. I really hope the rescue can take him :(

He is in a shelter near Charlotte. Multiple emails have been sent to the rescues around here, so I don't know if anyone is working on getting him out. Usually the rescues let you know if they are planning on pulling a dog you have emailed them about.

Is Sandy (Carolina sp?) in the area? Has someone contacted her to see if she can pull him? Then we can figure out how to get hom down to Jenna. How far is Coppers mom?
