We’re dedicating this early morning edition to saving all dogs on all clocks at all shelters. The inspiration comes from two dogs we’ve mentioned before.
The Mesquite shelter dogs Cowboy and Mesquite survived their 9 a.m. “appointment” Wednesday. They are -- and things could change at any moment -- still available for saving at the Mesquite Animal Shelter, reports our volunteer tipster Judi Brown. Still, they’re not out of the woods.
“Both dogs are urgent,” Judi wrote in an overnight note to us. “They survived today [Wednesday] because some other dogs were rescued which left some open kennels.” Here are their stories and photos from earlier editions, so ignore the reference to Wednesday and just worry about today.
How about that cute photo of the dog looking out of the shelter. There’s a story. This guy is Cowboy and he “has until 9 a.m. Wednesday” and then, if no one rescues him or adopts him from the Mesquite Animal Shelter, the 3-year-old Pittie mix, will get the needle. He’s been in the shelter since March 22. Our tipster Judi Brown wrote that “he was in the yard when several of our dogs were rescued. He saw them leaving. He became very excited. It was as if he was saying,”Don’t forget me!” He’s a frisky, energetic, fun loving guy anyway and after seeing other dogs leaving, he had a hard time settling down. Cowboy is friendly. He likes to interact with people.” His shelter ID is 38127341 -- use that number when you call 972-216-6283 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to rescue or adopt him.
ROSE, THE CUTE PITTIE MIX
Look at her cocking her head! “What’s happening next?” she may be asking. Here’s the Mesquite story from Judi: “Rose has until 9 a.m. Wednesday....She is super sweet and super deserving. She is also already fixed and has her rabies vaccination.;
The 5-month-old girl (25 pounds) came to the shelter as a stray on March 31. The bio describes this brindle girl as “a super sweet wiggly little puppy who wants attention and wants to play. ... Her tail wags her whole body. ... She would make a fantastic family dog.” When you ask about her at the shelter, use her ID #38193757. Call the shelter at 972-216-6283 or email email@example.com. Use her ID number to make it easier to save her life.
