Van Nuys, California: Hey, Buddy! This cutie is 5 years old lab and 106 lbs of adorable. He spent a good portion of 2020 in foster care where it turned out he’s a fun, affectionate pal who will shower you with kisses! He’s also a smarty pants who knows commands like “sit,” “wait,” and “shake.” Swoon!
Buddy has been back at East Valley shelter since 1/24/21 and volunteers share this: “He is just a big, goofy, friendly dog who has no idea of his size. He enjoys being brushed and scratched and appears to be quite tolerant of all types of handling. He’s also happy to sit with the handler and just chill out in the yard.”
Buddy may be best as an only dog in the home, or with someone savvy with intros, while he works on his training. He should go to a home without small animals.
His shelter friends just love this friendly, big boy, and it’s high time for him to high tail it out of there! Make an appointment to meet Buddy today! 🧡
🤗 Buddy is approved for 6 weeks of FREE boarded training once adopted or rescued!
Buddy is currently at East Valley Animal Services Center – 14409 Vanowen St., Van Nuys, CA 91405.
☎️ Call 888-452-7381 to make an appointment to meet Buddy! Give them animal ID # A1733615.
Rescue partners please contact Veronica.email@example.com if you’d like to help Buddy!
Tomorrow is Pocket's appointment with the surgeon. I'm more than a little freaking out right now.
We will find out how bad the damage is and whether his eyes can be saved with surgery. I'll potentially find out when surgery will happen and an estimate of how much it will cost.
He may need multiple appointments leading up to surgery. They may need to remove one or both of his eyes. The surgery will be disgustingly expensive, but it's just a question of HOW disgustingly expensive.
There are a lot of unknowns, which is something I am truly terrible at (ask anyone; I usually can't even watch a 2 hour movie without looking up spoilers). Focusing on anything other than worrying has become a nearly impossible task.
We could use all the good vibes in the universe right now, and if any of you have time travel capabilities, I would LOVE some spoilers on this one right about now.
(If you want to donate to Pocket's eye fund, I'll put a link to our g*fundme in the notes.)
Nothing. Just Porter Robinson's Something Comforting on full volume, and grieving our cat’s possible early passing. She was my comfort during this pandemic. And now she's gone (not confirmed, but most likely)
Our cat hasn't been home for almost a week now. We looked for her everywhere. We asked around. She has been listless, or maybe even sickly, prior to her gone missing. We cannot help but think that she went to die somewhere far, just like how our other dogs did in the past.
I can't stop being teary-eyed every time the thought of her dying cold and alone away from home crosses my mind. Why do animals do this? As a family that constantly adopts stray dogs, we experience this heartbreak so many times but we never really get numb from it. She was our very first adopted stray cat. At the start of the quarantine, she arrived on our backyard and welcomed herself in our dog-populated house, an unbothered little kitten even back then.
We were reluctant on having a cat because it might cause fights among our dogs. We were worried she will get hurt if she stays with us. We offered her to our neighbors. But she kept on returning to us. We accepted her and protected her. And she did the same for us, on many occasions. Our dogs also eventually became fond of her. She practically grew up here in our simple abode, surrounded by people and animals who care for her immensely. We are her family. What's wrong with dying in our arms instead? Or at least allowing us to try to save her?
Who is so well conditioned by their owner that when their friends and/or family come to save them, they have to make an active decision.
If Whumpee chooses their friends, what if they are forced to watch as their owner dies right in front of them? What if, even after all that, as a desperate move made by their brain they think the whole rescue is a test put on by Whumper?
If Whumpee chooses their owner, what if the inverse happens, where their friends are killed, but they still believe it’s a test? Better yet, what if they don’t even recognize the faces yelling at them to come, as if each and every one of them is the most bizarre case of deja vu? What if Whumper gaslights Whumpee into thinking the whole scene was just their imagination from the start?
Stamford, Connecticut: “Hey you! Why haven’t you applied to adopt me yet?!”
That’s definitely what Dylan is thinking in this first picture. And he’s right, why not?! This dog is amazing. He’s about 50lbs, 3-5yrs old, great with other dogs and knows how to sit. What more could you want?
Dylan is working on his leash skills and inside he is a gentleman, he loves his crate (aka bedroom).
Dylan is a lab mix with gorgeous subtle brown edging, his fur is so soft and in the sun you can really see his beautiful markings.
Dylan would love a home that can provide ample amounts of treats, a sunny window spot, lots of belly rubs, and walkies. The shelter has not yet kid or cat tested him but can if needed!
Dylan is currently going through heartworm treatment which is covered by by the shelter and other than that, he is in pawfect health!

These two are good together when they have a joint mission; like sitting at the top of any stairs and watching for intruders. Charles has begone to bark more than Sofie (if you can believe that?) to keep aliens from attacking the homefront. That includes every package, food delivery driver, or occasional friend of the family.
Sofie: Do you see anything there yet, Chuck?
Charles: Hey, Sof, we…
