Shelter Stories

Keisha (click for larger version)
This is a heartbreaker. Can you imagine driving off and leaving this beautiful female, wire-haired Terrier-Irish Wolfhound mix behind to fend for herself? Well, that's what happened to Keisha, who is six years old, about 50 pounds with a golden red coat. Her owners just took off. She looks a lot like Sandy in the musical Annie.

Keisha's world was a doghouse and a pen. This we know. She likes car rides. She's good with dogs and children. She walks well on a leash and knows basic commands. And she's very gentle as larger dogs often are. Since Keisha lived outside all her life, we don't know if she's housebroken, but crating her when she's inside will solve that situation quickly, if it even exists.

Keisha is spayed and in excellent health, thanks to RSVP, and has had all her vaccinations. We might even be able to come up with a crate if Keisha isn't housebroken.

(How can people do this to a loving animal?)

RSVP's number is (631) 728-3524. We need cyclone fence runs as the weather gets better so people will be encouraged to foster some of our harder to place dogs — no fault of theirs — Kisses, Sweetie, Trevor, Summer and King.

Volunteers, how about joining us for walks as the weather gets better? It will be good for you and wonderful for the dogs.

Finally, good news! One of our favorites, Nicky, has found a wonderful home! Thanks to all who cared!

Trevor needs a favor. He has been placed on a farm but he lives in a stall and needs sunlight and fresh air. I am willing to donate a 9 by 9 by 9 cyclone fence, nine feet high per section, which comes in four sections with a sturdy gate if someone out there will volunteer to move it.
