Lisa, sorry, CTA? I understand he can only be pulled by a local rescue, or by someone who will privately adopt him? He is apparently still there but on the top of the "KILL LIST" according to the facebook info I'm receiving. A kind woman by the name of Pamela Gorman has posted just now "I JUST CALLED IT IS 6:00 PM HE IS NOT DEAD YET BUT YES IS ON THE TOP OF THE KILL LIST... PLEASE IF YOU LIVE NEARBY GET HIM, I AM WILLING TO TAKE HIM IN HERE, I AM IN GRASS VALLEY CA WILLING TO GIVE HIM TLC, I AM W/ A RESCUE ORGANIZATION AND... DOING THIS ON MY OWN , I AM VERY CONCERNED ABOUT HIM. NEED TRANSPORT AND PULL... I HAVE 5 SPEICAL NEEDS DOGS MYSELF AND WILLING TO GET THIS DOG INTO A SAFE LOVING HOME...
GO GET HIM IF YOU CAN YOU DON'T HAVE TO KEEP HIM I WILL TAKE HIM IN.. ! YES HIS TIME IS REALLY UP !! HE IS NEUTERED ALREADY BTW !"
Lisa, thank you, thank you for continuing with this.
Lisa, just realised that CTA is Committed to Adopt, no I don't know, and this doesn't seem to be information that others have received? Just IPs who don't seem to follow through. He is apparently at the top of a kill list tomorrow morning.
Can people continue to follow and keep him safe.
Pamela Gorman has indicated she will foster him, but needs assistance with transport in the first instance, and the most pressing thing is to keep him alive now, and get him out of there.
Please continue to follow! Many, many thanks,
Okay, first, don't put any stock in the FB pleas, people exagerate to get people to either adopt or donate (beware because sometimes they truy to get people to donate money to people/rescues who aren't the ones actually pulling the dogs!). I've been in contact with the shelter directly and he is not going to be put down today. The CTA (whoever placed it) will hold him for 24 hours and then they move on to the IP's. I will call this afternon and see if the CTA came and got him yet, if not, I will put a CTA on him unless someone else already has, they only permit one CTA at a time. He is NOT in danger of being put down.
Beware guys, some unscrupulous individuals and rescues will find horrible looking dogs on the shelter sites, generate FB pages for donations to pull them with lots of pleas of urgency and funds needed.....all the while knowing someone else is pulling the dog....or even worse, then never pull the dog. Be very careful about who you donate to....check out the individual or organization. I have no idea who or what organization has posted this on FB, I rarely go on FB myself, but just don't believe everything you see on a plea.
I won't let this guy die...okay? Either his CTA's will come through or I will get him and place him with an all-breed rescue. His wounds are being treated and he is in the ISO trailer with heat and blankets.
Lisa, thank you for the follow up.
This boy does seem to be genuinely in need, and it is good news that he is being cared for within the pound, also that you are monitoring the case.
There appears to be another pug in the Lancaster pound, BTW, 10 mth PUG, MALE, LANCASTER CA Impound Number: A4227997
