Himalayan in Transit


SAMPSON...URGENT!!! MUST RECEIVE A RESCUE COMMITMENT BY 3PM ON TUESDAY OR WILL DIE!!!.

My received email subject lines are so warm and fuzzy.

This gorgeous longhair (appears to be a Himalayan) was surrendered to a high-kill animal control facility in Northwest IN. This facility does no veterinary work, and no adoptions, so animals are either pulled by a rescue group or euthanized. This unneutered adult boy was surrendered to the shelter along with an adorable Golden Retriever mix because their owner (said she) was being evicted. The dog has found a space with a dog rescue and "Sampson" (new name to come) is on his way to the Hyde Park Animal Clinic today tomorrow. We could definitely make contact with the dog rescue if anyone is interested in reuniting these two, but we will be putting Sampson up for adoption after he has completed his veterinary work-up and our assessment.

If you are interested in providing transit on an occasional basis for animals moving out of this NW Indiana shelter, please let me know.

Thank you, HPC, for all you do for animals from this horrible pound. The CBBR volunteers often joke that our best dogs magically seem to come from this terrible place. May it also be so with cats. Welcome, kitty.

What a beautiful (and very lucky) kitty!
