As you know, we often step in to help people (and pets), even when it’s outside of our mission. Today is one of those cases and it’s an urgent one.
Peyton and Bear are two dogs that were relinquished to the Town Lake Animal Center (TLAC) in Austin, Texas by their owner, who deployed to Iraq with no one to care for the duo. The soldier was not interested in finding a foster family for his pets and, as a result, their time is almost up at TLAC, which is a open-door, kill shelter.
The options for these dogs are adoption, rescue or death.
If you’re interested to adopt, you must contact the shelter by 7pm 11/3. A little about each of these beautiful dogs:
Peyton is a lab/hound/doberman mix, neutered, about 3 years old and 65 pounds. Playful, friendly, outgoing, lovable, but anxious when left alone. In short, he’s a love muffin! He knows many common commands, is appropriately protective of family and likes to play fetch, chase and tug. Please refer to animal ID TLAC A# 587397 when calling.
Bear is a chow/German Shepherd mix, about 6 years old and 60 pounds. Exuberant, relaxed and playful, Bear occasionally has an accident in the house, but is an affectionate and friendly animal. She has some initial ambivalence around strangers, but warms up in time. Please refer to animal ID TLAC A# 587396 when calling.
For rescue, the dogs must be pulled by any of the shelter’s approved rescue partners. Interested rescues must contact the shelter by 7pm 11/3. Email the shelter at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their approved rescue list.
Let’s make sure these two loving pets don’t die because their owner did not make appropriate arrangements for their care. Please help if you can and share this post in your network.
