Two puppies need homes

Why buy from a breeder when there are plenty of homeless pups in shelters???

Two puppies need homes

Postby tankers12 » Fri Sep 24, 2004 2:37 pm

A coworker of mine has two puppies almost 8 weeks old. I told her that I would try and find them a home because she doesn't know what to do with them. Contact me if anyone is interested or knows someone that is. I will drive them almost anywhere in washington or oregon.

these are pit bulls or some variety of pit mixes or ... that's a good piece of info. and she... bought them, found them, bred them by accident...

check out Steph-n-Wolfs thoughts on re-homing: http://www.pitbullforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=5463

and Ruckus' adoption criteria : http://www.pitbullforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=5371

be sure she charges an adoption fee to offset her costs for spay/neuter, vaccines and de-wormings. Never, ever free: http://www.petrescue.com/library/free-pet.htm

Please check out POPPA inc. Do a google search. They will send a check to the vet to cover the cost of spay/neuter if they have funds availble. i have more info on these sort of things if you are interested....

I had arranged to have them vaccinated and delivered to a foster home this weekend, but my coworker after agreeing; happened to remember that her boyfriends coworker was taking one and her daughter's friend was taking the other.

In this situation I wasn't worried about the costs of the vet. I would of paid for them. We already took one of their puppies( Pit Bulls) from the first litter. This is the second litter in less than 6 months.

Thanks for your help, those who I was in contact with.

It is so wonderful that you are helping! I would, in a situations like that, also refuse to help/take pups until they owner/breeder signs a spay & neuter contract for the dogs that mated to have the pups... since this is the 2nd litter in 6 months!!!!

Good luck, and thank you for being so willing and able to help those puppies!

2 pups

good job getting the word out Tankers 12- but Steph-n-Wolf is right, the momma and papa situation will undoubtedly repeat itself. unforunately, although homes were found, pups were not spayed/neutered first which is going to spell more of their puppies (and their puppies) needing homes and clogging the shelter system. Here's a niblet: I read once that every dollar spent on s/n saves $7 on animal control costs.

be ready with your littany of reasons to s/n - all its benefits on health and behavior http://www.hsus.org/ace/11823 "myths and facts of spaying and neutering HSUS".

I'll even take dogs/pups a day or two before their surgeries and take them there myself just so i know that they arrive at their appointment. Do you think they would be interested in free/ reduced spay/neuter surgeries? what do you think it would take to convince them? http://happypets.addr.com/lost_cost_or_free_spay.htm
