Lost dogs el paso tx
They’re just like you. Except that they are missing. Sometimes forever. Your loved one is going through a very difficult time in their lives and is desperately seeking out your help. He or she is searching for answers, and you are the only one who can help. You have a chance to not only find out what happened but also a chance to help your loved one begin to rebuild their lives and move on with their lives.
But here’s the thing. You may not even realize that you’re at a crossroads.
You must first recognize that the dog may be in trouble. Don’t think that someone has just dropped off your dog and now you can just walk away. Dogs don’t need to beg to be rescued. They don’t need to come over and make you feel guilty. This is not a personal vendetta. This is their life that you are asking them to start over. Sometimes, there are just things in life that you will have to face head-on. Dogs are dogs. They are not people. There are many stories of people who “freed” a dog for the purpose of showing a video on Facebook, and then the dog was abused or even killed by an over zealous owner.
Don’t do this! Your dog is in trouble and you need to help.
The biggest mistakes you can make as a dog owner is to make assumptions about the situation. Your dogs are the only ones who can tell you exactly what has happened, and how to go about making things right. Your dog can’t lie for you. Sometimes, however, your best-intentioned advice might have tragic consequences for your dog.
Before you make any hasty moves, first find your dog. Make sure he or she has access to food and water. If he or she is well cared for in an emergency situation, then you can proceed.
If your dog was dumped, there is still a chance to rescue him or her, and save your dog’s life.
If your dog was in an abusive situation and needs medical treatment, then I highly recommend the assistance of a veterinarian.
Be a safe place for your dog.
Don’t leave your dog to be rescued alone. If you are a dog owner who can’t keep your dog out of trouble, then you are just as irresponsible as the ones who leave their dogs to fend for themselves.
Most of the time, when a dog is abandoned, he or she was left at a shelter. It is up to the shelter to provide care for the dog until he or she is adoptable. These shelters are overcrowded and cannot take on extra patients. Unless there are extenuating circumstances, leave your dog at a shelter. They need you to go save someone else’s dog.
If you have a dog that needs emergency care, rescue him or her from the shelter. I recommend calling a local animal shelter. You might have to get ahold of the shelter to get your dog’s information.
The animal shelters are open during normal business hours (usually 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.), but there are people in shelters 24/7. You can call them to make sure they are still there.
Don’t turn a stranger into your vet.
If you don’t know how to make a vet appointment for your dog, don’t just go driving into the vet’s office. Just because you can drive doesn’t mean you know what you’re doing.
Remember, we need you to go save the dog of someone else.
Don’t take on a job you aren’t prepared to do.
We are all in rescue! When you take your dog to the vet, you are taking a dog that needs care to another family. We all need to be prepared to give that dog care.
As a veterinary technician, I know many people who are very capable of taking on your dog if you are not.
Don’t do rescue or foster if you are not prepared to be an active part of it.
Do not volunteer for a rescue organization without knowing how to properly care for your dog. Rescue organizations are not vet organizations. Volunteers are not trained to care for dogs.
We can provide you with some tips for preparing to adopt a dog, but you need to go beyond that. Don’t volunteer for a rescue group without being willing to be an active part of the organization.
We can’t and don’t expect you to get your dog the perfect forever home. That’s impossible. Just make sure you have taken all necessary steps before getting that dog home.
You should be confident that your vet will be able to properly treat your dog’s issue and that you have a proper environment for the dog, no matter where he or she ends up.
We can’t save everyone, and you know who the heroes are.
In times of crisis, sometimes we all need a little bit of help. Some of us know what that is like. You.
What is the best way to help? By volunteering your time to save someone else’s dog.
I am a big believer in the power of volunteers. Many shelters are run by volunteers. We are able to do our job because of people like you. Please, take time to help those who cannot help themselves.
Volunteering for your local rescue organization is an important part of being a responsible pet parent. Don’t be afraid to tell people what you’re doing and why. People don’t often volunteer, but it can be important to the success of your organization to have a person willing to take the time to help. The rescue community needs all the help we can get!
The dog is one of the most important members of your family. Please do not allow the shelter/rescue community to use your dog as a bargaining chip in a dispute with their shelter/rescue group. The shelter is allowed to adopt your dog to the public, but do not allow your dog to be adopted to someone who owns an animal that was abused in the shelter/rescue group.
As responsible dog parents, we are not allowed to use the shelter/rescue community to hurt others. If you need help, ask us, but do not abuse them.
I know that sometimes it can be difficult to choose where you want to adopt your dog, so I have compiled a list of my favorite local rescue organizations here. Be sure to check out the list!
