Rescuer creates ADOPTME.TV to help homeless dogs find new homes
January 11, 2015 10:37 AM MST
A dream for every dog to have a home
In an effort to help the countless unwanted dogs (and cats for that matter) find new homes, one Texas woman has created a new platform to promote homeless pets in a unique, eye-catching manner. Amelia Rush, a rescuer, animal-welfare advocate and avid social networking "networker," felt the need to create a new venue for homeless pets when she saw troubling changes taking place in the realm of Facebook.
Rush watched as Facebook clamped down on animal welfare networking efforts - she cringed as she saw Facebook feeds for rescue agencies and shelters drop to a pittance of what they once were and her heart broke for the animals that she knew would die because of their lack of exposure.
Rush created ADOPTME.TV, a YouTube-like venue for shelters, rescuers and would-be adopters to come together...an "all-in-one" platform to help the homeless find homes. The ADOPTME.TV site includes dog video profiles, in addition to live event streaming - it is an area for shelters and rescues to showcase their dogs in need.
Rush has high hopes for the site - she wants it to be a place for dog owners, and would-be dog owners, to come together to access more than just adoptable pets. She envisions a site where people can be educated on proper pet ownership, enlightened about troubling animal cruelty situations, and provided with links to veterinarians, groomers and boarding facilities.
In order for ADOPTME.TV to become all that Rush hopes it can and will be, the word needs to get out - it needs to become the "go-to" place for shelters, rescues and would-be adopters, as well as current pet owners. Click here to access the ADOPTME.TV www.adoptme.tv website.

Temporary home needed
My family and I have to move to irvine CA for my husbands new job and our new apartment doesn't aloud us to bring our dog. I was looking for a temporary home for a year. Her food, vet, and boarding would be paid for. It is breaking our heart she is our family. Looking for a great family to take care of our spoiled dog. She is a 6 year old sweet pitbull named Carmen. She is great with my kids. She would need to be in a single animal house. She is very active. She is up to date with vet needs and spaded. She loves to be loved on and go on walks. Although she always needs to be on a leash. She is used to being inside. It is very important to us we find her a home. We would like to be able to visit her and take her out sometimes. And if family needed to go out of town we would pay for her boarding. Need to find some ASAP.

Urgently Need Help with my dog
I recently went through a brutal separation that uprooted my life, started online stores & was doing Craft Shows. All was looking promising & along came Tropical Storm Debby. I was one of the most critical flood cases. I lost home, possessions, inventory, income & more. Then along came Hurricane Isaac that also impacted me. I now received a call that my mom in her 90’s took a drastic decline & w/the help of a friend was able to make the trip north. I drove 26 hours to be with mom.
My daughter & her husband were working out the logistics to have me move in w/them.
To our surprise we were informed by their landlord that my dog could not be in the building.
I will not abandon my precious dog as she is all that I have left in life & what has kept me going. She has been with me through all my tears & has been a joy in my life…she is part of my fibers.
Kenya is a small approx. 55 lb 10 yr old West Shepherd, is not a barker, is low key & easy to tend. She is well behaved, obedience trained, house broken & has never had an accident in the house. She is very loving, grew up w/cats, loves people, children & other pets. She is neutered, current on all shots & vaccinations, gets monthly flea treatment etc Photos of Kenya and information http://www.rover.com/pets/dogs/kenya-26705/
I need someone to take her in for a long term period of time or share the time w/someone else,
She is easy to care for & everyone who meets her falls in love w/her.
My daughter & I would like to be able to visit her & walk her when possible & convenient for whoever graciously could take her in.
I would pay for food, vet care if needed, & help in whatever capacity.
Without this help I will be homeless. It is breaking my heart to be separated from her and I do not intend to give her up. But I desperately need help. I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
Todo in Tuscany - the Dog at the Villa
I hope some of you fellow dog-lovers might be interested in our new book, Todo in Tuscany. It's basically the story of the three years we spent in our new home in Italy, which we bought because of the dog who already lived there! His owner had died a couple of years before and he refused to leave so became our dog and we adored him. The book is published by Hodder & Stoughton in the UK and is now available in shops and through the usual online sellers, Amazon, etc. You can find out more at www.todointuscany.co.uk and he has a Facebook page, www.facebook.com/TodoinTuscany Many thanks!

Sweet Female Walker Coonhound Needs a Home
We found this dog wandering in the streets (Norris, TN north of Knoxville). She has no collar, no chip, and appears to have wandered for some time. Took her to the vet and got all her shots, treated for fleas and ticks, and round worms. She is very loveable. Needs a home where there is room to roam or at least she doesn't have to stay in all day. We both work and sometimes very late. The girl (we call her Bertha) is about six years old according to the vet. Anyone knowing someone who would be interested, please let us know. She really is a good girl.

yellow lab rescue grows up ( a little)
after neutering my rescue yellow lab marley, 21/2 seems to be slowing down just a bit and appears to be more trainable. it is probably not that he is growing up but that we have bonded so ENORMOUSLY that he is more eager to please and less apt to be stubborn and contrary. now a couple socialization classes with other dags and i think we might just have the best dog in town. at least in my heart!

Canine Clips is supposed to be a Professional Dog & Cat Groomer?
We sent our dog to Canine Clips(13/05/11) for his annual hair cut. Latter that night our dog was in great pain in his groin area and anus. He had severe razor burn on his testicles, foreskin and anus. Our little guy, has not been able to rest until Sunday night when I obtained some Calendula salve, which provided relief. Yet if I could afford a trip to a Vet, I would get our dog examined, and charge these people with animal cruelty ! but I'm on a pension, and can not afford it. Thankfully I'm an amateur Herbalist, and could take care of my little baby, relive his pain.
But this Canine Clips is supposed to be a Professional Dog & Cat Groomer?
Who regulates these so called Professional Groomers ?
They hurt my Dog ! What can be done to insure that they don't do this to another pet !
There is NO WAY he would willing allow anyone to do that to his grown area, without being held and forced. This is torturous treatment for any Man or Beast !
I contacted them, and they told me our Dog, maybe having an allergic reaction(Ya and I was born yesterday !) they offered a tube of cream to help. lol

Please help save this dog
and not just this dog all dogs that could be killed just because of how they look http://www.facebook.com/pages/Save-Lennox/125005200853097
Lennox is a loveable 5 year old family member. He's an American Bull dog Labrador cross that we have owned since he was a little pup. As responsible dog owners that also foster for numerous Northern Ireland dog shelters we had Lennox as a young pup Micro chipped, Neutered, DNA Registered, Pet Safe Registered, Insured and Licensed every year with the Council without fail. On Wednesday the 19th May 2010 he was taken from our family home by Belfast City Council as they believe he falls under the dangerous dogs act for Northern Ireland. The Council, without seeking any proper professional guidance declared Lennox to be a breed of "Pit Bull Type" and so they wish to kill him simply because he has the appearance of said breed. The Belfast City Council took Lennox from his loving family home using a wrongly addressed warrant and using copyright ADBA (American Dog Breeders Association) breed standards guide which the Council were never authorised to use, in doing so the Council broke international copyright laws and for doing so have recently been issued with a 'Cease & Desist' order from ADBA Inc. Lennox has never attacked anyone or anything yet the Council have removed him from his home where he lives with my Husband, myself, our 11 year old disabled Daughter, his kennel mate Juicy a 2 year old female boxer and various foster dogs. Belfast City Council are pressuring our family to sign him over to them to be destroyed however we feel the need to fight his case, he cannot speak but we will be his voice! If this was a human we would declare this racism. We ask every kind hearted compassionate person for your support, don't let them murder him. This may be our dog today but it could be your best friend tomorrow! Please visit Lennox's main website for further ways in which you can help.

Adele-Avaliable for Adoption
Miss Adele was brought to TARA with her sister Clementine. Even though both girls were very thin when they arrived they still had loving dispositions. Adele and her sister instantly bonded with the staff.
She loves everyone! She is one of the sweetest dogs you will ever meet. She just looks at you with those gorgeous eyes and begs you to stay just a bit longer. Those floppy coonhound ears make her even more adorable. This beautiful girl adores playing in the water. If you have some land with a pond, or like going to the lake, this girl would be a great friend for you. Please take the time to meet Adele. You might find that she will be that special girl you've been waiting for!
Adele is located in Missouri but for the perfect family we may be able to work out transportation.
Please visit her page for more information
