“Weighing barely 15 lbs, I’m sweet and enjoy simple pleasures — watching TV, eating treats and walking around the neighborhood.”
Italian greyhound lovers meet Corrine! She is currently looking for a calm but loving home to call her own. She’d love to be the queen of the house, but is open to meeting new dog friends. However, a home with only adults or older children (teenagers) is required. At 13 years young, this sweetie is hoping you’d welcome her home and asks that you don’t keep her waiting; Paws4You.org.
“Help! I found a dog, what do I do?” Being involved with various rescue groups for many years, this question haunts me no matter where I go. So, you’ve picked up a stray and can’t keep it because you already have a dog and a cat, and the list of reasons goes on. And you want a rescue group to “take” the animal you rescued because you don’t want it to get “killed.” Individual rescue groups cannot take full responsibility for the animals found every day, mainly because we depend on our community’s donations. If you find yourself picking up a stray, take it to a local veterinarian and have it scanned for a microchip. Report the stray as found to the animal services office, social media and different websites in hopes an owner is looking for the dog. If the stray isn’t chipped, commit to give it a temporary safe place to live, and then partner with a rescue group to find the owners or a qualified new owner. The stress you will feel is only temporary, and you’ll be able to sleep at night knowing that you saved the pet and did not take an easy way out.
