Big Ol’ Baby

Bear

UPDATE:  TUE  08/23/16 1745

Bear has a home.  He was adopted this afternoon.  He’s enjoying his new home already.  Thanks to all who assisted.

 

The prevailing wisdom is that a chow will be an aggressive dog. Well, here we have a chow mix who defies logic.

He’s 3 years old, we’ve been calling him Bear and he didn’t get the memo about being mean. He’s what we know as a Big Ol’ Baby.

He’s available for adoption at Laurens County Animal Control. He needs a home PDQ. For more info on Bear cal 864-984-6812. Ask about the WLBG Pet of the Week.

And please SHARE his photo. Surely someone wants a Big Ol’ Baby.

Are You Pinky’s Miracle?

 

UPDATE: Hats off to Clinton Animal Hospital. They took this little guy in to provide his care. They’ve named him Kaiser. If you would like to help with the considerable expense of his surgery and care please call 864-833-2487.
 
UPDATE 2: There has been an arrest in this case. http://wlbg.com/2016/08/10/injured-dog-placed-in-dumpster-man-arrested/

 

 

 

In Laurens County SC we have a lot of good people. They’d give you the shirt off their back. They’ll happily go out of their way to help someone or even a little dog in need. But we also have a few humans who are capable of this.

I’m gonna call him Pinky. He was found this morning in a dumpster near Laurens Terrace Apartments…..tied up in a plastic bag……and tossed into a dumpster. He’s a little pit puppy and has a badly broken rear leg.

Forget displaying anger toward the unknown punk who decided to prove he was a man by doing this to a 6 week old puppy. That won’t help Pinky.

If there is someone, anyone who can help Pinky please contact Laurens County (SC) Animal Control right away. The county does not have the funds to help Pinky. He needs a good veterinarian. He’s hurting and this needs to be done lightning quick. If not, the humane thing to do is to end his hurting.

Call (864)984-6812 for more information on how you can help. A rescue group that wants to be Pinky’s miracle would be an answer to prayer.

Please SHARE. Please. Pinky needs a miracle fast.

Slim Wants To Be Your Best Friend

Slim

                     Slim

I call him Slim. I suppose it’s sorta obvious why.
 
And you’re seeing him after several weeks of regular feedings at Laurens County (SC) Animal Control. Before that he was skinny.
 
When a dog is abandoned on the side of the road some think they can hunt and survive on their own. Nope…..dogs are pack animals. A dog by himself cannot survive. And if they do find other dogs to run with a pack they become a threat to livestock, other pets even people in the area.
 
Most of the time they either are rescued in emaciated condition or they die of starvation. That’s what almost happened to Slim here. He’s recovering and he’s a loving dog but he really needs a home.
 
If you want more information on Slim call Animal Control at (864)984-6812.
 
And please SHARE. Slim has been there a while. Time is limited.

Good Time Charlie

Charlie

I like this dog. He looks like he’s saying “Come on! Let’s GO!”
His name is Charlie and he’s available for adoption at Laurens County (SC) Animal Control.

Charlie is a boy dog a little over one year old. He’s a good dog and he loves peoples. And I just love his look. Charlie’s a classic, you might say.

If you’d like more information on Charlie call Animal Control at (864)984-6812.

And please SHARE. Charlie would really like to have his very own family and I think he deserves that.

Help a Good Girl Out

Penny

Her name is Penny. She’s estimated to be 3 to 5 years old and a Jack Russell Terrier mix. She has a laid back personality………she’s just a good little dog who needs a home.
 
Penny has been at Laurens County (SC) Animal Control for over a month. The shelter is not a no kill facility. Penny’s days are numbered.
 
She doesn’t eat much. She’d love to watch TV with you and just sorta lean over against you. And she’ll let you know when you have company. Great little companion.

And please SHARE. Let’s help a good girl out.

Need Somebody To Love

Holly

This pretty girl is named Holly. She’s about 7 years old and she is NOT at Laurens County Animal Control…………Holly can be found at the Laurens County Humane Society.

Holly was originally surrendered to Animal Control due to the death of her owner. The Humane Society took her in when her time was up to prevent…………well………you know what.

So, Holly is not in danger of being put down. She’s in a ‘no kill’ facility. But Holly needs a home. She has spent her whole life loving humans. She still does. She just needs a human of her very own.

Now, Holly does not play well with other dogs. She has to be an one and only dog. She was heart worm positive but she has successfully completed treatments and she’s now free of that concern.

If you would like more information on Holly for yourself or for a rescue group, call the Humane Society (864)833-9060.

And please SHARE Holly’s picture. She just needs somebody to love.

Do You Believe In Magic?

Magic

 

His name is Magic. That’s not a name I made up. That’s been his name for all three years of his life. But, his life has changed a lot lately.
 
Humans when a a relationship comes unglued, can do some odd things. This time, Magic was the victim. Dad was working out of town. Mom was home with Magic. Only, then Mom left.
 
We think she came back…..at least a time or two to give him some food but he was looking pretty poorly when neighbors called Laurens County Animal Control.
 
Magic is a good boy. He’s been well trained. He will sit and stay and you can tell he wants to please you.l He just needs a human that won’t leave him. He needs a home and a family to bond with. He’s a loving dog. His body language even in this photo is saying “Please let me love you”.
 
Do you need a bit of Magic in your life? Call Animal Control. The number directly to the shelter is (864)682-4935.
 
And please SHARE Magic’s picture. Someone out there may want to love him. He sure wants to love right back.

Defender, Protector, Friend, Shepherd

Shep

A shepherd. No, he’s not pure blooded but as you can see he’s mostly German Shepherd.
 
A protector, a guardian, a loyal friend. These dogs are all of that by nature. It is their instinct to defend and protect. They’re not mean or aggressive but……..do not threaten his human.
 
His name is Shep (original, I know) and he’s one year old. He’s at Laurens County Animal Control and he’s about out of time. He’s been there about six weeks.
 
If you’d like a friend for life he’s available for adoption today. Call Animal Control……..864-682-4935.

A Sad Story – Lucy

Lucy

 

This is a sad story.

Lucy is 12 years old. She lived her whole life on a chain until 4 weeks ago when her owners turned her over to Laurens County (SC) Animal Control.

While on that chain, kids would throw rocks at Lucy. Guess what? Lucy became mean. Maybe that’s why her owners didn’t want her anymore. Lucy arrived at Animal Control and everyone there knew that Lucy would be put down and maybe………well, maybe that was for the best.

Then something strange began to happen. Lucy began to change. She wags her tail now. She craves human contact now. Nobody is throwing rocks at her. The people at Animal Control talk softly to her. They feed her, even scratch her behind the ears. Now, Lucy wants to live.

But, she’s been there 4 weeks and her time is up. This will be a tall order but our Animal Control officers want us to try. It would break their hearts to have to put Lucy down now.

Lucy has been an outside dog all her life so that’s fine but……….no chain. And Lucy will end up a gentle, loving soul but just 4 weeks ago she was a mean dog so……no small children. And she’s 12 years old.

So, we have to find someone who loves old dogs, wants to see an old girl finally learn to smile and has a fenced yard and no small kids. Impossible?…………maybe……….but we’re going to try. We just a few days. The shelter is open Monday through Saturday near the Laurens County Airport. The phone number there is (864)682-4935.

And please SHARE far and wide. Maybe there is that special someone out there who will let Lucy know that humans can love………can love even an old dog who has only known chains. Good luck Lucy. We’re all pulling for you.

Free Clyde!

Clyde

 

This is Clyde. If Clyde looks sad and a bit confused……..he is.

You see, Clyde had a home but then his owner’s landlord said that Clyde looked like he had some pit bull in him and Clyde had to go. He ended up at Laurens County Animal Control. They’re nice folks there but the shelter is full. Clyde says he needs a home.

I hope Clyde’s luck gets better. He’s about 8 months old and he’s a very good boy. Would you like a full blooded Clyde? Call Animal Control for more information….(864) 682-4935l

And please SHARE. Like I said…….the shelter if full. We gotta get Clyde outta there and quick.

Good luck Clyde.

Daisy – A Life Worth Saving

Daisy

 

I’m gonna call her Daisy. She’s a sweetheart. She’s mostly German Shepherd and about 18 months old. She has just been spayed and will soon have the stitches out.

Because she’s up to date on shots has been fixed there is NO adoption fee. Daisy is a sweetheart but she doesn’t like cats and she kinda gets freaked by small dogs…….gets along well with dogs more her size.

And Daisy is a life worth saving. The shelter is full. In just 2 and 1/2 days NINE dogs have been taken to Animal Control and left there by their owners. That puppy that was a Christmas gift? Reality has set in and they don’t want the responsibility of pet ownership so……….off to the shelter. And by the way, this is NOT a no kill facility. With the shelter full…….well, you get the picture.

If you’d like to know more about Daisy or discuss adoption, call Laurens County (SC) Animal Control. (864)682-4935.

Spread the word. She’s a life worth saving.

A Message From Jimbo

Jimbo

 

Woo HOOOO!! Hello from the shelter at Laurens County (SC) Animal Control. It’s not so bad here……the people are nice. I just wish I could get my dog friends to occasionally be quiet. It gets kinda hard to get a nap with all this constant barking.

I wasn’t picked up as a stray. The folks who owned me brought me here. I’m still trying to figure why. I’m a good dog……even the folks here say so. I get along with other dogs, I love people…..I’m not mean at all. You know, the funny thing is……I miss my owners. I did love them.

Could someone help me? I said it’s not that bad here and it’s not but………I do know that I can’t stay here. Dogs that are here too long……….well…….something bad happens. And the problem is I don’t know how long too long is. So, I do need help and the quicker the better.

If you have any questions about me just call (864)682-4935. Tell them you want all the skinny on Jimbo. That’s me.

And please, please SHARE my picture. Tell all your friends to spread the word about me. I just want to hear somebody say “Good Boy!” and let me be their dog.

Let’s Go Home Boy

 

Pete

 

UPDATE:

RESCUE!!  Pete has a home.  Thanks to all who helped.

Pete home

It’s always the eyes that get to me. A little fella like this should have happy eyes. Pete’s eyes are sad.

He’s about 2 years old and was picked up as a stray by Laurens County (SC) Animal Control. Pete has been there a long time and the shelter is full. Maybe he knows what that means. No wonder he looks sad.

Pete could use a hero…….someone to say what he’s been listening for………….”let’s go home boy”.

If you want more information about Pete call Animal Control – (864)682-4935. Maybe you’re just the hero Pete’s been waiting for. I bet those eyes look different when he sees you.

And please SHARE his photo. Spread the word. Pete needs to hear those magic words as soon as possible.

Hurt. No, Really, That’s His Name

Hurt

           Hurt

 

Hurt. That’s what they call him at Laurens County Animal Control. I don’t know why. But let me tell you what I do know.

Hurt has been in the shelter for more than two months. He was actually scheduled to be put down last Friday but several dogs were adopted and they sorta squeaked by without killing any.

But now…….well, let’s not dwell on that. Hurt is 3 years old. He’s a boy dog and he gets along well with people and with other dogs. I even think he could learn to love a cat. He’s just a good dog.

He’s a mountain dog mix. That means he’s a natural herd dog and a protector. He’d be great with little ones.

Want to save a good dog. Adoption scholarship is available if someone can give him a family of his own. Call Animal Control (864)682-4935.

And please SHARE his picture. Help spread the word. A good dog’s life depends on finding that someone who wants a loyal friend who will never walk away.
