Today I want to introduce you all to beautiful Lindsy, a large Pitbull Retriever Mix, about 5-6 years old, and has been living at the Babylon Animal Shelter since May of 2016. She’s such a wonderful dog that it’s hard to believe she is still waiting for her special someone/family to come along.
People seem to be under the impression that just because a dog is in a No Kill Shelter or in a boarding facility, it means they are safe. To some people this means there is no urgency in helping the dog. These dogs are barely even shared simply because their lives aren’t at risk, but I’m here to tell you that this is not true!
Although these dogs are loved and well taken care of by volunteers, a kennel is not a place for them to live out their lives. Dogs in kennels deteriorate, are stressed, can be depressed, and become withdrawn; these reasons alone put their lives at risk. Additionally, they can be more difficult to acclimate to home life after being in the kennel for a while, because they get used to kennel life thinking this is what life is.
We are a very important component in making these dogs unforgettable, in helping to get them noticed! I understand not everyone may be in a position to adopt, but if you can’t adopt, maybe you can foster. Fostering is a way to get the dog out of a shelter, into a home environment so they can learn how to live there and is a shorter term commitment for you. If you can’t foster, then maybe you can volunteer or share, SHARE like crazy! Sharing get the pups out there for all to see, near and far. It takes seconds out of your time to hit a share button! Sharing may seem like a small thing to do, but it gets big results!
Even here at Paws Give Me Purpose you can read of forgotten shelter dog that have been adopted since we have begun our Shelter Spotlight Series.
Sadly, this gorgeous girl is yet another forgotten soul who needs our help. She is very sweet, and has proven to be a great companion. She LOVES people and will want to be by your side wherever you are and will want to participate in whatever you’re doing.
Lindsy is a very low maintenance kind of girl! very obedient, knows her basic commands, and is even great at catching treats in the air. She would make a perfect furever friend for someone! She enjoys leisurely walks and is the type who would enjoy cuddling on the couch to watch TV with you.
Help me be Lindsy’s voice! Help me network her. Help me help her find a loving home where she can live the life she truly deserves. Share this post, network her. Together we can make a difference for Lindsy and every dog that sits in a shelter or boarding facility WAY too long.
