Please give $5 to help save poor Yogi!
Yogi was owner surrendered to a kill shelter in rural Texas. He is five years old, and a purebred chocolate lab. He is heartworm positive, which means that he was not a good candidate for rescue.
Yogi's owner told the shelter director that Yogi had alerted her when a seizure was coming on. He saved her life numerous times. Another time robbers came into the home and Yogi kept them cornered until the police arrived.
His owner could not keep him any longer (we suspect she was going into assisted living) and she left him at the pound, and asked that he find a great home. [Excuse me, but that sounds incredibly lame to us - the dog saves your life so you dump him in a kill shelter? People can be so irresponsible!] Sadly Angleton shelter cannot adopt to the public. So the only options are rescue or euthanasia. She did report that he was good with all other dogs, small children and cats.
At the shelter, the director puts many dogs in each kennel so that she doesn't have to kill them unless she has to, and begs rescues to save them.
Yogi was in a kennel with all the puppies she had, and at night he'd let them all sleep snuggled up against him to keep them warm.
Our friend Em Wolf of Mountain Dog Rescue needs help with this one. We have agreed to sponsor him to enable them to save him and give him the care he needs. Please help if you can!
With our sponsorship, Mountain Dog Rescue will get him vetted, get medicine for his heartworm and put him in a loving foster home while they look for a good permanent home for him.
All donations go directly from Paypal to Mountain Dog Rescue. Please chip in - together we can save this one and many more!
If you are interested in adopting, please contact Em at http://www.mountaindogrescue.org/contact-us.html
