This NFL Player Walked Into An Animal Shelter And Asked For The Dog That No One Else Wanted

June 20, 2016 | No Comments » | Topics: Dogs, Heartwarming |

Baltimore Ravens Offensive Tackle Ronnie Stanley and his girlfriend stopped by The Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter and made a game-winning request: “We are looking for a dog that’s been here a long time and maybe not-so-adoptable.”

That not-so-adoptable dog is a 6-year-old girl who was found in mid-May, locked inside a room in an empty home with no food, water, or fresh air.

“She was dehydrated and extremely frightened,” BARCS wrote. “Winter has a long, hanging belly, mostly likely a result of over breeding–something we see far too often at our shelter. Due to her age, her belly is not something that will ever tighten up. Female dogs with such characteristics are often passed by in our shelter — but not by Ronnie!”

Ronnie’s thoughts on her appearance, as recalled by volunteers: “Well, that’s just what happens when you’ve had babies.”

BARCS spokesperson Bailey Deacon is thrilled for what this adoption may mean for other shelter dogs.

“If big, strong, cool Ronnie chooses adoption, so will those who look up to him,” she says. “And the bonus here is that he didn’t come in and adopt just any dog, he specifically asked for a long-term, hard to adopt pup. How cool is that?”

6-Year-Old Boy with Autism Reads to Shelter Dogs to Help Them Find A Home

funny pictures and videos of the day

The canines at Carson Animal Shelter in Gardena, California have found comfort and companionship in 6-year-old Jacob Tumalan, who visits every Thursday after school to soothe the animals with his storytelling. Jacob, who has autism, sits on a mat before the cages and reads to the abandoned dogs, who grow calmer in his presence.

The weekly ritual began when Jacob’s aunt, an animal rescue worker, first brought him to visit the shelter six months ago and saw the special bond he formed with the four-legged, furry friends. Though his autism means he’s often uncomfortable around loud noises and hectic activity, he’s easily relaxed and focused while engaging with the pups, who also give him a sense of purpose.

Jacob explains, “If I read to the dogs they will come out of their cages and find homes…They have to find new homes because they are alone.” His volunteer work and gentle, generous presence help to socialize the dogs in preparation for eventual adoption by fur-ever families. Jacob, too, benefits from the project: he’s improving his language skills and now reads at a third-grade level. It’s a win-win for kid and canine, a reminder that both tales and tails can truly change lives.

Shelter Dog Who Cries All Day In His Kennel Has Reason To Hope Again

May 4, 2016 | No Comments » | Topics: Dogs |

Sometimes a glimmer of hope can weigh heavily on the soul. That’s what happened to a homeless dog who wouldn’t stop crying after he was adopted but returned to the shelter a few days later.

Juice is a Bullmastiff mix and a longtime resident at Montgomery County Animal Services & Adoption Center, having spent 10 months at the facility. The shelter recently a heartbreaking video of Juice and a plea to help find him a home.

“This is a really hard post for us, because it’s about a great dog who isn’t doing so well. This is a story about Juice: a cuddly, loving, giant-headed goofball who has been at the shelter for almost 10 months. And Juice really, really needs your help. Really.

“For a long time, Juice was the example we used as a dog who could manage the stress of shelter life without getting depressed. But in the past month that changed- he started to lose his confidence. Then he was adopted and we jumped for joy! But it wasn’t the right match, and after a couple of days he was back in his kennel, more stressed than ever. Staff started to notice him crying, panting, and pacing more often.

“One of our staff took him home for a “sleepover” this week to give him a break from the shelter and try to help him relax. But when she brought him back in the morning and put him back in the kennel, he started crying. And didn’t stop. All day.

“Living in a shelter is not a life, and we’re afraid that Juice is beginning to lose himself. He needs a home, where he can be himself and regain the confidence and trust that he has lost. He needs a family who will give him time and patience- we know that he’ll repay that kindness with incredible loyalty and endless snuggles.”
