On November 23, five dogs were brought into the shelter from the health department. Long story short, there were seven total but the family got to keep two. That's right, their kid was taken away but they got to keep two dogs! The house was condemed. We got one miniature pinscher, three miniature pinscher mixes, and a stunning pit bull girl.
The pit bull, Roxy, was locked in the bathroom for God knows how long! Nobody had seen her before she actually made it to the shelter. For not being socialized, she's extremely friendly. A bit growly around new people but within minutes she's your best friend. She's probably around a year old and a little underweight. She has major seperation anxiety. She hardly eats anything. Throughout the entire shelter you can hear her mournful howls. She is a PEOPLE DOG AND NEEDS TO BE WITH PEOPLE!
We live in a small, rural community. And while our shelter is a no-kill shelter, most pit bulls don't make it out alive for various reasons.
We have quite a few who have been there pushing a year. We don't get many fosters either so the dogs and cats stay behind kennel doors until someone picks a new family member.
Please help Roxy out! I'm scared for her. I cannot take her home or I would. The director isn't really concerned about finding her a foster but I and another staff member are. I'm scared for her life actually.
Sorry I don't have any pictures, other than on my phone. I'll try to get some soon. Anyone willing to adopt/foster to any breed savvy person, in or out of state. Transport can be arranged.
Please call or email the Humane Society of Putnam County. Thank you!
