EDITION OF WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2017 (PetPowellPress) In summation, here was the subject line: May Day at the Euless Animal Shelter!! Way too many Dogs AND Cats!
Well, my goodness, there are remarkable things going on at the Euless Animal Shelter at the Euless Trinity GAP Rescue right now. For example, how about that Mr. Peabody (17823) at the Euless Animal Shelter.
So what? He’s not the only one. There’s a flood that inspired GAP advocate and Barkleyworld.com stalwart Karen Lee to declare, “HELP! Someone opened the floodgates after the Thanksgiving holiday and filled the shelter beyond capacity in a matter of a day.”
Mr. Peabody is one of the new arrivals. He’s a Rat Terrier/Chi mix of an undetermined age and he must need a human. Here’s a description in a note from Karen: “He was trembling in his little bed until Amber swooped in and scooped him up. I thought we were going to have to surgically separate them...He’s def an Earhound with those big ol’ radar ears.”
There are many more animals “in danger due to overcrowding” in the Euless shelter, according to Karen. [LARRY ASIDE: That orange cat has a newsy name: Prince Harry! There's a conversation starter- you adopted Prince Harry!]
You can visit the shelter at 1517 Westpark Way in Euless. Call 817-685-1594. It’s open 7 a.m.-4 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturdays. Karen says, “There are all sizes and breeds of dogs—big, little, male, female---and all flavors of cats too!! Many are not yet posted so PLEASE drop by the shelter and see who’s in need!” You can see the many Euless/GAP Club animals by going to https://triitygaprescue.org. See something you like, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
And one more EXTREMELY IMPORTANT OPPORTUNITY: At trinitygaprescue.org you can also learn about fostering animals and right now the GAP Club is looking for fosters to help these animals get through this sad post-Thanksgiving shelter squeeze. Follow GAP on Facebook HERE .
I’ve saved this photo until the last. It is a gathering of dumped Chihuahuas -- five of these were owner-surrenders. Oh, about one of those cats above: If you want a cat, the shelter has plenty of all colors and also, Cleo, who features many colors in her coat.
A BOY FROM A CRUELTY CASE
This is youngish Lab/Husky mix Mylo, “adopted from the Denton shelter previously and brought back to the shelter as a cruelty case,” reports our tipster Amy Poskey. Here’s the background: “This poor boy was crated in an apartment 24/7 and was found in deplorable conditions.
“Poor baby was found crated in the bathroom, covered in feces. The crate and bathroom was filled with feces. He is somewhat frantic at the shelter and doesn't kennel well (do you blame him?) and because of this, the shelter feels that his best chance is rescue where he will be in a foster home. He cannot go to a boarding situation. It would be too difficult for him.”
He's obviously an Earhound. And Amy’s note says Mylo is friendly doesn’t react to passing dogs “and is a spinner (a result of being kenneled too much.” One theory is he “may be a good candidate for service dog training or search-and-rescue once he settles down and starts focusing.”
Email email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org,
email@example.com, and/or firstname.lastname@example.org at the shelter and volunteer Amy at email@example.com. Call the shelter at 940-349-7594.
[LARRY ASIDE: The person who did this to Mylo may need to have some focus applied via the Raadlarrypowell.com Two-By-Four of Enlightenment. But, of course, that would be wrong. Feel good, but wrong...]
CONTEMPLATIONS: I’m not interested in falling victim to a missile fired from a country that keeps dog on its menus. Jerks. Sorry. I couldn’t figure out a way to say all that with an air of diplomacy. ... Here’s a right-turn on the Highway of Thoughts: It occurs to me that, having lived on the North Texas prairie for nearly five decades, I can’t enjoy sunsets that are obscured by the groves of Northeast Texas pine trees. I like the pine trees in the rain, but sunset loses its allure if you cannot see it. ... I heard something Tuesday I’ve not heard in many years --- a redheaded woodpecker living up to his name on the side of a telephone pole. It echoed through the neighborhood, this rapid-fire pecking. Love those red-headed woodpeckers. I have yet to see an Ivory-billed Woodpecker, but I keep looking for one -- just like I’m looking for the Fouke Monster and that other myth, a winning Lotto Texas ticket.
