Pet of the Week

Meet Alvin, Simon and Theodore...

Everybody’s vision of pet abandonment is different. Some see it as intentional desertion and others treat it casually with the belief pets posses instinctual skills for survival. It matters not how humans see it, as it is heartbreaking when witnessed through the eyes of a dog, or cat. The confusion they experience is palpable. The fear is measurable and, immediately, they mourn the human they believed was their family and protector. Jetting to the windows and outside doors, shelter dogs continue to look for their human companion in hopes that they will arrive soon.

An entire family of Yorkies consisting of dad, mom and their two sons were abandoned, with their toys, in a public setting. Rescued by a good Samaritan, only three of them made it to the shelter as another member of the public quickly took the mother. All of these precious pups weren’t just left to their own means but were living in a very high state of physical neglect.

Today, Alvin, Simon and Theodore are neutered and fully vetted. Their beautiful hair has began to grow back and the color patterns are as unique as their individual personalities. These cuties are ready for their new home. Might they be going home with you?

Pay It Forward For Pets is a 501c3 non profit organization that helps improve the lives of both people and “rescued” pets through special programs.

Note: Please keep in mind that all adoptable pets need time to decompress once they enter a home. For some it will happen quickly and for others it might take a few weeks. You'll want to be understanding of what they have been through and their level of insecurity. We ask that you treat all of them as if they were an 8 week old puppy. Assume they know nothing and begin at step one. You'll soon know what they are capable of and what behaviors you will need kindly work on with your new family member. It's called commitment! And, that's what these pets want more than anything!
