PostHeaderIcon Urgent Pets as of 7/18/10

I tweeted this week's urgent pets a little while ago. It was really bad this week. There were 42 urgent dogs and cats. That's right. Forty-two. What's even worse is that most shelters don't even designate any of these wonderful pets as being urgent, which means that there are many, many more we don't know about. Breaking it down, there are currently 22 cats and 20 dogs on the list.

Most of the cats are at the shelter operated by Midland Animal Control. The Humane Society of Midland County helps out at the shelter and has some foster families, but they could always use more help.

Several of the dogs are at the Delta County Animal Shelter in Escanaba. Check out black lab mix Nautier, rottie/hound mix Eisa, border collie/lab mix Abby, and retriever mix Duke. They also have a border collie/husky mix boy with beautiful baby blue eyes; there's no name given for him, though, so if you call about him, just give his description.

If you're looking for a beagle, try Benzie County Animal Control in Beulah. That's where you'll find Tonto, a great beagle boy, and Maddie, a terrific beagle lady.

The Ionia County Animal Shelter has a lot of cats, including urgents Charlotte and Pinky. Also on the urgent list is Owen, a 1-year-old spaniel/shepherd mix who loves people.

The Homeward Bound Animal Shelter, run by the Manistee County Humane Society, is a small group of dedicated volunteers determined to make a difference. Check out Ripley, an Australian shepherd/lab mix. The poor guy has had it rough lately. He ended up at the shelter when his owner couldn't take care of him anymore. Then he thought he had a new home, but it didn't work out, so he's back at the shelter.

Deder is another great dog who was surrendered to the shelter in Manistee. This great girl has been at the shelter since October! She's a pretty American bulldog/lab mix. Then there's poor Chomper, a collie/shepherd mix. He thought he had a great forever home until the new baby turned out to be allergic to him.

At Isabella County Animal Control in Mt. Pleasant, you'll find Bruno, a terrific hound mix who happens to be blind. He's about six years old and a very smart guy. He needs to be in a home with no cats. If you're looking for a great kitten, how about Olivia? She's in a foster home but will end up living in a horse barn if she doesn't find a regular indoor home soon.

Desert Sun is a very sweet basset hound/pit bull mix currently at Southgate Animal Shelter. She needs someone to save her by July 23.

Kaylee is a chihuahua mix at Harbor Humane Society in West Olive. She needs a foster home to take care of her until she's ready for adoption. She's about ten years old and diabetic. Her previous owner was sick and couldn't take care of her anymore. Can you help her?

Osceola County Animal Control in Reed City hopes to find a nice forever home for Ranger. He's a 10-year-old chocolate lab with some health problems (including blindness) who needs a home by July 20.

Also in Reed City, Ruby is a young Staffordshire bull terrier who needs someone to save her by July 21. She should be adopted into a home with no small children, and it would be best if her adopter has some experience with her breed. Bo is a Staffie mix who desperately needs a home with a nice fenced-in yard where he can run around. He needs someone to help him by July 22.

There are three dogs in at the Newaygo County Animal Shelter in White Cloud who need homes by July 21, their scheduled euthanasia date. Charlie is an 8-month-old Australian shepherd mix; he's a gentle, quiet boy. Bella is a Belgian shepherd who absolutely loves people. Mea is a terrific young pit bull girl who loves to cuddle.

If you're interested in any of these pets, or if you know anyone who might be interested, please contact the shelter. Thank you!
