Please Help Hartley!!!

We saved Hartley from severe neglect. Now she needs saving again…Please help her!

Hartley needs a new foster immediately. C’mon, Pit Bull community, we can do this! Please Share, Click & Comment, or better, consider fostering this girl who is all heart: foster@ocpbr.org

Hartley is crate trained, house trained, playful, petite, and accustomed to other pets. Hartley’s foster mom has a family emergency with a family member hospitalized and undergoing urgent surgery. We’d like to find her a new foster immediately so Hartley can settle in to one place instead of bouncing around. Could you open your heart and home to this petite beauty? foster@ocpbr.org

Hartley has been living with 2 male and 1 female dog, and a dog-friendly female cat. She is slowly being integrated with the pack with controlled interactions and is doing awesome. She is eager to learn and please, she is full of so much love to give. Hartley is a young girl who acts so much like a puppy…so she listens very well with simple and clear guidance. foster@ocpbr.org

Please help her.

Freedom Ride For Hartley!

Freedom photos! Mercy for Hartley, rescued from a high-kill shelter, her owner under criminal investigation for severe neglect! Just look at this baby’s poor skin! This is a joint rescue by OCPBR and  The Ark Animal Rescue.

To donate to her foster care, please click on Donate button to the right of this post. Hartley, after giving kisses and love to her rescuers, is going straight to the vet for emergency care.

Despite everything, Hartley is still a happy, active little girl who is approximately 3 years old. She was adopted out from a locall high kill shelter in March with Demodex mange, which is very treatable. Hartley left on a medical waiver, which required the adopter to follow up with the shelter about her healthcare. Well, he never did. Poor Hartley is now in terrible shape and landed in the shelter again as a forced owner surrender due to severe neglect, pending criminal investigation. In such bad shape, she would not have made it out of the shelter without rescue help. Harley deserves her second chance: she is a very sweet, loving little lady.

Foster Needed for Gentle Giant!

Maximus is a 7 year old Pit / Mastiff mix who only has until 7/16 to find a foster! Totally mellow with other dogs! Cool with shelter bunnies! Calm and sweet with all people! Questions? Email foster@ocpbr.org. Or fill out an app to foster him A.S.A.P. here: http://www.ocpbr.org/foster/foster-application/
Notes from the Shelter Volunteers:

Maximus is very calm, sweet and mellow. Today he just sat there to be cooled off in the shelter play yard with the hose on low and he loved it! He has had no issues with other dogs, in fact most dogs don’t even seem to interest him; but he does like to just chill and hang out near them in the shelter play yard. He has seen the bunnies up for adoption in the shelter and had zero interest in them either.
Maximus only has until 7/16 because the shelter is full, and because he has two broken canines. This is no reason to condemn this sweetheart! Please help us give this great guy a second chance. Email foster@ocpbr.org with questions

Georgia is suffering and needs your help!

Can you spare a little to help with Sweet Georgia’s medical bills? We need to raise $1,115 to help this sweetheart! Please click on Donate to the right of this post.

Georgia is one of the sweetest, calmest, and most playful dogs we have ever met and we just hate to see her suffer. Georgia is a nearly perfect dog. She just has one challenge: terrible skin allergies. We have tried everything and so have our vets to help get this girl some relief. This is a very serious condition which causes secondary infections that are affecting her quality of life. 

We’ve even had 2 potential adopters back out because of Georgia’s allergies! We’ve just got to help this girl.

So, Georgia is going to an allergy specialist to get to the bottom of her problem. She may simply be having a reaction to an environmental allergen. Or she may be battling an autoimmune disease. Just to diagnose the cause of her skin condition will cost $1,115. Could you help a little?

Georgia thanks you!

Donate at www.ocpbr.org and put “Georgia’s vet bill” in the notes.
