Pets are family. Animals have feelings, they fear, they suffer pain, they have emotions and love for their owners. How can people dump their pets in the cold or at shelters? This is heartbreaking. These pets are devoted to their human families. They mourn lost owners.
There are organizations that are helping abused animals. Leave No Paws Behind is one that lovingly helps these poor senior betrayed animals. They offer end of life support and specialized medical services to these loving animals. Foster care assists until the healthy pets are adopted. The more medically challenged rescues that suffer with terminal and/or severe medical conditions are placed in hospice/long term foster care for as long as needed. Some of the rescues arrive in mutilated conditions from abuse.
Save A Rescue is a wonderful organization trying to save lives. They are helping abused animals by offering a search directory with rescues, shelters and adoptions. They are crowdfunding for a new van to relocate dogs and cats from high kill shelters to make California a No Kill state.
Meet a wonderful organization that is helping abused animals “from idiot humans”.
Since March 2011, Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue has rescued over 1300 dogs from shelters across the country. This non-profit, all volunteer network of rescuers transports dogs from pounds in the rural south, dogs that are on the ‘kill lists’ in high kill pounds. Some of those pounds practice inhumane methods of euthanizing the dogs. Some have over a 90% kill rate.
The loving people at Badass utilize professional rescue transporters to ensure that the ride up from these pounds to Brooklyn are comfortable and stress-free. The dogs are taken to foster homes for training and some get adopted. Badass takes meticulous steps to finding an appropriate match, including personal references, a vet reference and a home visit before they allow the adoption to take place.
In addition, rescued dogs provide medical care, including spay/neuter, vaccinations, tests for heartworm and other medical services.
