Because we just cannot resist an eye patch, we had to take this nugget home with us tonight. She was being surrendered to @crisp_chicago, and we could not let her stay at the shelter. It took a lot of people working together, but we made it happen! Thanks to @nealerinm for fostering, and thank you to everyone else who stepped up to save this girl! #dogsofinstagram#fosteringsaveslives#eyepatch

Crookshanks got a bath because even though he’s flea-less now, he had a lot of flea dirt. (Fleur got a bath too for the same reason!) Kitten baths were surprisingly easy! Vet says C still has his URI & is trying a different antibiotic, an antiviral, & some anti-inflammatories. Poor little guy. He needs to kick this! Today he started purring for the first time, and he’s been a lot more vocal. However, i think he got too hungry at the vet today, and he threw up tonight. He just can’t catch a break. #HarrysHissies

I was messaged about this kitten in Grand Terrace California. The finder says she has a house full so she can't bring the baby In and I'm worried because where she lives she says there are coyotes. 😣
I'm not sure how old this cutie is or if it's a boy/girl but it's very friendly and needs a safe place to go ASAP.
Please focus on getting this baby into a foster home and off the streets. The tail appears to be mangled and partially missing. Baby will definitely need medical care.
Please tag and share for a great foster/rescue and pledges for vetting expenses!!
If anyone can help please DM me and I can put you in contact with the finder.
@Regran_ed from @rescuecatnetwork - BRAVE LITTLE GIRL NEEDS OUR HELP
It’s every foster’s/rescuer’s worst nightmare: to wake up to a critically sick kitty. Sweetheart Dracula was beyond critical; for all intents and purposes, she was clinically dead upon arrival at the ER. Vets performed lifesaving chest compressions and managed to find a heartbeat. This little girl is a fighter but she is literally fighting for her life. Right now her vet bill is more than a staggering $10k. This shouldn’t be about the money. It should be about giving her every possible chance to survive. I know there are other fundraisers you could donate to but this little girl needs all the help she can get. Please consider sending a few $$$ if you can. Details on how to donate can be found in @heidi.systo bio ❤️
Repost @heidi.systo with @get_repost
I am so defeated. I went to visit her tonight and nothing about her was how a kitten should be. She didn't even open her eyes for me. Her bill is now 10,600 and I just got a 6,000 increase on my credit card to pay for today's expenses. In addition to the Panleuk she is now also septic. I just feel so hopeless I don't even know what else to say.

I love him. He’s such an amazing dog. Tonight Ravioli, the large chocolate lab who lives in the house behind us, was out in his yard. Our yards are separated by a chain link fence, which bothers Seamus immensely, so he loves to run along the fence and bark like the ferocious cattle dog he is. That always sets Ravioli off, and he barks his head off right back. Jon Snow also likes to bark, because he thinks he’s playing with Ravioli (J/S is cute but kind of a dope). Paddington just trotted along the fence, taking in the chaos and then calmly trotted back over to me, all the while my two wild things and Ravioli continued their rousing howls to alert the neighbors of their terrible behavior. Paddington is such a catch! #adoptablepaddy#presentingpaddington#fosterdog#rescuedogsofinstagram#adoptdontshop#cleartheshelters#fosteringsaveslives#pibble
👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Thank you to all the giving hearts that donated for Christmas ❤️🎄🐶🐱🐰🎄❤️ for the forgotten angels at the shelter, whether monetary (towards blankets and treats purchased) or contributing to the fabrics for 168 blankets I sewed 🧵( 87 for kitties 🐱 & 81 for dogs 🐶).
➡️ Distribution is confirmed for Monday, 12/17 at 10am (moved from this Saturday) which works better for the shelter manager.
Special thanks to 2 non-profits that gave to this effort. Mindi @preciouspalspetrescue donated fabrics she hand-selected for me to make up for the dogs. @spoofdawgrescue gave a very generous $250 matching cash donation towards blankets. Please support both of them in their efforts ❤️👏🏻.
I’ve been to Big Lots and picked up 100 brand new 50”x60” velour blankets with donations received last night (receipt attached), plus I went back and bought another 30 blankets which are from my boys (my dogs will not be receiving gifts this year so we could do this). Every dog 🐶 will receive a new blanket & treats will be passed out to every kennel, every cat 🐱 is getting a new blanket & treats, bunnies 🐰 are getting yummy Timothy Hay, special food, and my enrichment treats they love which I still need to make up (sample attached from previous year, last pic). Note: I have $26 left over because I ran purchase of blankets through my business license so no tax on blankets today. The shelter manager asked for “Stretch & Scratch” boards for the kitties, so I told her I’d order with the remaining funds ($626 was total raised last night).
In total @melissaetorre and I will be bringing over 260 new dog blankets, 87 cat blankets, plus treats for every animal. A couple surprises to come Monday so stay tuned. ➡️ We will post lots pics 📸 of the animals 🐶🐱🐰 receiving their gifts on Monday so you can see where your donations went as we have done in the past 🙏🏻.

Last week, Pip came trotting in through the barn doors!
We are currently treating his cherry eye with antibiotics/ steroid drops, and he will be having surgery in the coming weeks. This small love bug has quickly become very smitten with his foster mom, and we are seeing him become more comfortable and social each day.
As with all our animals, Pip will be hanging out on the farm as we work through all his medical needs and anything else that may come up. We find that by giving our fosters time here at the farm, we learn so much about them and that facilitates successful adoptions.
Let's give a big Farm Howdy and Hello to Pip!👩🌾👨🌾💚🐶 #rescuedogsrock#fosteringsaveslives#bethechange#thefurryfarmrescue

Meet the new babies! They have upper respiratory infections. We’ll be keeping the two that need fluids (Hilda & Salem), and the other two (Sabrina & Zelda) will be going to @fosterkittensrus. We are running low on supplies, so if you’d like to help out, please check out our Amazon Wishlist linked in my bio. #sttwkittens

Sweet SHADOW was left at the Shelter after 10 years because the family felt he was now too old to keep after they chopped his ears off and had him live outside.....They said he was great with other dogs and kids. He is so heartbroken and so sweet and he needs help fast. Please SHARE for his life, he's SO special and a FOSTER or ADOPTER would save him. Thanks!💖

This is the best little toy! I’m so amazed since Kingsley is always begging for treats I might as well make him work for it and it’s the cutest little snowman- perfect for the holidays ⛄️❄️
This is not sponsored I just think this is such a nifty toy if your cat loves to snack on some treats ⛄️ #TemptationsTreats

Intake date 10/09/18
Columbus county animal shelter:
The process on our page: We try and raise at least $300 in pledges for each dog who is Heartworm (HW) Negative. If a dog is HW positive then we have the $300 goal but we strive for more bc the treatment can be so pricey. Pull fees at the shelter are currently $45 for the vaccines shown below, $75 more if dog is spayed/neutered. We are a non-profit so we collect the pledges, subtract the pull fee and donate what's left to the rescue for whatever else the may need (further vetting, hw treatment, transport, boarding etc.). Please help us help them! -rescue process-
If rescue interest in pulling this dog, please PM this page so we can help with the process. Give you fee amounts, let you know about behavior etc. Also please email your 501(c)3 to email above.
Intake Date: 10/09/18. Stray. HW+. Dewormed and given distemper/parvo vaccine 3 days after intake, when stray hold is up. Given Rabies vaccine and bordatella. Given simparica 10/13/18 and 12/05/18. spayed on 11/14/18 via our group.
Approximately 2.5yr old, female, around 42 lbs, Staffie mix. Has some skin issues going on. Appears to be ok with other dogs, but needs a calmer male to be best. She even appeared to do ok with cats at shelter but they are in a cage so isn’t always 100% the same in a house.
Diary of a Foster Mama- Apple’s Bushel Edition, Take 3: 🍎
PUPDATE! 🐾💕 The babies are 5 weeks old, and they’re the puppiest yet. They wrestle and play and gnaw on each other and everything else. Those teeth are coming in! And more and more personality every day. They’re so happy and hilarious. 😄 And they all *love* giving kisses.
🐶Jupiter- She’s holding strong as the tiny one. Pretty quiet, super sweet, new things can make her a little uncertain. She’s exploring more and joining in the play. As the mini girl she often watches. Super snuggly.
🐶Fuji- (Why are you taking my picture?) Already the biggest, she gained the most weight since last time! Big sweetie. Still the talker, she loves pouncing and roughhousing. She’s the first to come running up and wagging like crazy for pets. Very physical, very funny, personality to spare.
🐶Honeycrisp- My clever girl! She plots things out and does the most figuring. Little garbly “growls” when she eats sometimes. Always checking out what’s going on, she’s observant and extra loves pets. And she’s getting fluffy.
🐶Gala- One of the main wrestlers, one of the first to figure a way out of the crate barricade, active and endearing. Super responsive and happy, she’s a doll.
🐶Jonathan- Our one little boy is becoming quite the fluffa. Most likely to randomly tumble over or out of something. He likes to sit on his own occasionally, but def joins in the fun. He’s also verbal when he eats sometimes, and he’s often found nursing upside down.
🐶Mutsu- Still the wandering explorer girl, she’s quiet and sage. But she still loves to play! She gives heaps of kisses and often has such a serious look to her. She’s the second largest and has a scratch across her nose at the moment, from before all the nail trims. She loves curling up.
They’ve all had a second round of preventative dewormer and one nail trim. I want them to be used to having their feet handled. They all get lots of love, individual attention, calming music, and happy energy!

I realize this is an opinion post here but please refrain from arguing in the comments. I’m not here to fight with anyone.
Many of you have commented on our recent posts saying things similar to, “I hope they get adopted together.” While the girls are super fun, sweet and cuddly together we do not have any plans to adopt them out together. Many litter mates act just like theses girls before they are split up into separate homes. It’s very possible that the dog you have in your home today had a litter mate that was close to them just like this. They WILL do fine without each other down the road. Note: These girls are in a different category than an older bonded pair that have been together for years.
Many training professionals strongly recommend against adopting siblings at the same time. The biggest challenge of adopting puppy pairs is their tendency to bond very closely with each other, often to the exclusion of a meaningful relationship with their humans. They can become inseparable. These dogs can experience high anxiety when separated and can also cause them to be fearful of other dogs/humans. Dogs are pack animals and this can also create bullying.
That being said, there are cases where litter mates in the same home work out just fine. I’m not saying it cannot be done. There are recommended ways to make it work, but we don’t want the higher risk of the pups being returned in the future. If you are thinking about adopting siblings in the future please do your research on the training. I’ve learned that a lot of it starts with keeping the dogs separated for most daily activities; playing, walks, vet visits, etc allowing them to have separate bonds with everyone.
I obviously believe dogs do need other dog companions, but I think that a person should have a strong bond with there first dog before bringing in another.
Thank you for reading this and I hope you all understand our reasons for separating the girls.

She is the PURRFECT kitty if you’re home alone often and want a companion. She follows me every where and let’s me carry her around. She can go to a home with other pets or be your only girl. She’s about a year and a half / 2 years old. She was dumped at the shelter only because her family had too many animals. Skinny is an AMAZING girl. #rescueismyfavoritebreed#adoptdontshop#adoptables#fostercat#fosteringsaveslives
