I got this email today, with a plea from Susan Hufeld. If you can help Cassie avoid going to the shelter, please contact Susan directly (contact info below):
I need to find a foster home very quickly for a beagle mix we named “Cassie” that I found a couple weeks ago on the street. She can’t stay with my mom much longer. Please read her short story below:
Cassie is a beagle/terrier mix, approximately 5 – 6 years old. She was found in the City of Inglewood in the middle of rush-hour traffic. She has a very sweet face and disposition, but extremely timid. Cassie appears to have just had puppies and was loaded with ticks when found. She has bite marks on her face and ears and probably had quite a struggle on the streets. She recently received her first round of vaccines, including Rabies, was spayed, treated for ticks and microchipped. She needs a loving and patient person to bring her life around full-circle. She doesn’t appear to have been socialized with children and would do best in a calm environment without children She cannot stay in her current home very much longer, but has already grown attached to the older man in the home and the family’s golden retriever. She is great with other dogs! She needs either a forever home or a foster soon or might have to be relinquished to the shelter. Please help Cassie.
Contact is Susan Hufeld firstname.lastname@example.org — can anyone help?! Foster? Rescue? Adopt? Know someone? They cannot keep her much longer and will take her to the pound! She was found on the streets, having struggled for her life – will she ever know a family of her own?
