Looking for Love in Alabama and Oklahoma

I don’t feature many dogs or cats looking for homes just because there are so many and there are some committed Dogster and Catster groups that help dogs and cats find homes.

But there’s always the exception. Tonight I got two messages from Dogsters trying to help a a few very special dogs in special cases. So here are the dogs these caring folks have taken to heart. If you live in Alabama or Oklahoma one of these needy furbabies could be your next cuddle partner. Even if you can’t keep them forever, maybe you could step up and foster one of them.

Please contact those who are trying to help directly. Do not respond to the blog.

Please do bark in if you adopt one of these dear ones. We’d all like to celebrate with you!

In Alabama, this sweet girl is looking for a home. She doesn’t have a home but here is her story:

Another dog has been dropped off here or either a stray has migrated to my house. She won’t go away even tho she is not being fed. She is extremely sweet & really craving attention. She stands at my front window & watches me & my animals & cries. As most of you know, she can’t stay here. She needs a loving home or at least a foster home where she can be kept away from the elements & cars. Attached are a couple of photos.

Alex’s mom took one look at my sweet face and started trying to find someone to love me and give me the furever home that I deserve. She’s emailed lots of friends and acquaintances and called some vets and they’ve posted my picture. I only have a few days where I am hanging out. The kind lady there has already taken in A LOT of other animals and it’s taking away from them for her to feed me. If no one will give me a home or at least a foster home, then in a few days the lady will take me to the humane society.

Please, if anyone that is anywhere near Birmingham, AL can help or thinks that they might want to adopt me, please contact Alex’s mom. a_gowdy@hotmail.com or through dogster.

In Oklahoma there are three furbabies running out of time. I have left the original post in all caps as it came to me.

IT IS A VERY SAD TIME FOR ME HERE IN BURNS FLAT… AS MOST OF YOU KNOW, I HAVE BEEN DOING THIS FOR A YEAR AS OF JULY 1ST. TO DATE, I HAVE SAVED OVER 260 DOGS, ALL SPAYED AND NEUTERED… ALL EITHER INTO FOREVER HOMES, FOSTERS, OR GREAT RESCUES.

I COULD NEVER HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU…
I TURNED A 99% KILL SHELTER INTO A 0% KILL SHELTER…THAT’S RIGHT, WE HAVE NOT LOST ONE… UNTIL NOW…I AM ON BORROWED TIME WITH THESE THREE…
