Spring is in the air, spay and neuter your pets before they "catch the scent!" It happens every year in the springtime; litter upon litter of unplanned, unwanted, abandoned, and dumped puppies begin flooding our county shelter & we receive calls, texts, and emails every day pleading for assistance. #DollyGoodpuppy currently has FIFTEEN puppies in our kennel.
The spring influx of puppies and kittens presents many challenges for shelters and rescues – resources are stretched to the limit as local organizations (like DGP) and good Samaritans struggle to provide food, medical care, and foster or adoptive homes for hundreds of unwanted litters during puppy & kitten season.
Tragically, many of these springtime babies never make it to see the happy ending they so deserve – orphans die before they can be rescued or arrive at a shelter too sick or injured to be saved.

Regrann from @mrsyobe - GRAPHIC and painful just to see but I can’t shut my eyes to the urgent needs of homeless pets in @miamidadecnty Every battle, every loss, every heartbreak has to serve to make us stronger and more determined to create change and to include homeless pets in the #NeverAgain#TimesUp And #StopAnimalAbuse change we’re experiencing. CRITICALLY injured & in need of care!! With over FOUR HUNDRED dogs at @miamianimalserv Max, fka Ben, #A1941847 is urgent enough that he’d be one of the first to lose his life. This handsome boy was picked up by animal control officers severely injured and with his right hind limb degloved all the way to the bones. His left side and inner thigh have severe road rash and infection, as well as necrotic areas which may cause an amputation to fail or cause multiple complications. Pleas were sent out but no rescues responded and so dedicated vet #drserrano asked for help in saving this dog. The shelter is not able to treat him at the level he needs and so humane euthanasia would be indicated if they consider the level of pain and suffering is greater than their capacity of care. Please share Max and help us save his life. If you’d like to help, please PLEDGE, DONATE to help cover medical. #thisisnotmydog#spayandneuter#adoptdontshop LINK in bio for @youcaring - #regrann
If you can help with Allie's care please do! @Regrann from @foxfosterkittens - My heart breaks for this little girl. The news goes from bad to worse, I don’t understand how things went south so quick.
Her C02 levels are through the roof again so she will remain in oxygen for awhile. She has pulmonary edema again so they are increasing her lasix. She is also being started on antibiotics for possible pneumonia. Tonight I noticed allies kidneys felt a little enlarged so they’re running blood to check her kidney values. Lasix can wreck havoc on the kidneys so we need to make sure they’re still functioning properly:
Now the worst news. The radiologist said allies chest is more compressed again, meaning her pectus excavatum surgery is failing which is probably causing the rapid respiratory rate. This means she may need surgery a third time running another couple thousand. The orthopedic surgeon will be in at 10am to look at Allie and decide where to go from here.
Please do not tell me I’m putting “too much” into one kitten and am wasting my time and should euthanize her. We are doing everything in our power to save Allie so she can live a happy healthy life. We aren’t like most rescues and care about quality over quantity, and we always will.
PLEASE pray very hard for Allie!
We are over $4,000 into Allies care so far and now have another hospitalization which will run us another $800 or so. We know we sound like a broken record but we desperately need your help to save Allie! Please consider donating just $1 towards allies vet bills. Skipping that morning Starbucks tomorrow may not seem like much but those few dollars will go a long way if every donated! Allie has been through so much and needs your help to continue to fight! Thank you to everyone who has donated and prayed for Allie, everything counts!

I worked at an SPCA for 3 years , and part of my job was euthanizing. This world is full of so many unwanted animals ... so you better bet that if you posted your dog or cat had babies or you wanna use your pet as a stud I will unfollow. Call me a bitch for doing so .. I don’t care. I spent my days telling animals I loved them and that I was so sorry no one wanted them . I refuse to follow people who are going to add to the problem . You want to experience the miracle of birth then foster a pregnant animal and saves lives . Shelters are full of puppies , purebreds .. you name it . Spay and neuter !!
Google Save the Cats of Sandy Pines Recreational Community to sign the petition on change.org and to put pressure to save the remaining cats.
On Jan 25, 2018 an adult cat was found frozen to death in a live trap behind a dumpster at Sandy Pines Recreational Community in Dorr, Michigan. This happened because a Trap Neuter Return program was rejected and a policy of trapping to eliminate cats was carried out by rangers -who didn't even bother to check in on the traps they left out in the open or the condition of the cats caught inside. To add injury to insult, Sandy Pines has reinitiated its policy of trapping to eliminate now that the media attention on them has gone away. Please don't let them go back to killing cats unchallenged.
