Man Gives Shelter Dogs Free Haircuts To Help Them Get Adopted

January 4, 2017 | No Comments » | Topics: Humanity, Life |

There’s nothing like a good haircut to make you feel like a brand new person. And the same can be said for a dog too. For shelter dogs, it can make all the difference in the world. A good haircut can not only improve their mood and their health, it can increase their chances of being adopted.

Enter Mark Imhof, a volunteer groomer for Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC). Mark is an NYU MBA former businessman turned dog groomer. A few years ago, he wanted a career shift and to work with animals. After getting his grooming training and certification, he decided to use his skills to help transform shelter animals and make them become more adoptable.

Kids Comfort Shelter Dogs by Reading to Them

The Shelter Buddies Reading Program at the Humane Society of Missouri is doing wonders for everyone involved.

The concept is simple: teach kids to read to shelter dogs as a way of preparing them for forever homes, all while instilling a greater sense of empathy in the youngsters, too.

Kids who sign up for the monthly program are encouraged to sit in front of a shy dog’s kennel with a book and read to them.

“We wanted to help our shy and fearful dog without forcing physical interaction with them to see the positive effect that could have on them,” program director Jo Klepacki told The Dodo.

“Ideally that shy and fearful dog will approach and show interest. If so, the kids reinforce that behavior by tossing them a treat. What this is also doing is to bring the animals to the front in case potential adopters come through. They are more likely to get adopted if they are approaching and interacting, rather than hiding in the back or cowering.”

His home in Denver, Colorado houses 10, mostly senior, dogs, a couple of cats, a rabbit, a pig named Bikini who thinks she’s a dog, two chicks, two ducks, two pigeons and a koi-filled pond.

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

August 22, 2016 | No Comments » | Topics: Humanity |

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?”

High School Cross Country Team Takes Lonely Shelter Dogs On Their Morning Runs

August 15, 2016 | 2 Comments » | Topics: Animals, Humanity |

A California high school cross country team decided to change things up during summer workouts and, in doing so, they let the dogs out.

The St. Joseph High School Cross-Country Team in Santa Barbara, California, partnered with the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter to get shelter dogs out of their enclosures and onto the trails and running paths where the team trains.

The team was able to give around 12 dogs a reprieve from being in the shelter by taking them on their morning run August 4. The dogs seemed to enjoy being out as well, although one pooped pooch had to be carried part of the way.

“I am not sure who was more excited and having the most fun… the dogs or the kids,” Luis Escobar, former coach of the cross country team, posted on his Facebook page. “Either way, it was a great time and I am sure we will do it again sometime soon.”

If you live near Santa Barbara, California, and want to adopt a dog, contact Stacy Silva at (805) 934-6981. You can also visit the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter-Santa Maria Facebook page.

This is a story of the right person, in the right place, at the right time. Rock Hill real estate agent Casey Lawrence found the injured Pit Bull dumped in the woods after getting lost while showing a property. The dog was discarded and left to die after likely being used as a bait dog by dog fighters. He was surrounded by bones and animal carcasses!

Fortunately, Casey found the dog, now named Rambo, in time! She rushed Rambo to Baxter Veterinary Clinic. Rambo was covered with bite marks and lacerations and was severely injured, and his leg wounds infected with gangrene.
