Using Social Media to Save Abandoned Pets


  1. i need some help here. I found a sweet, male pit mix wandering my neighborhood 2 weeks ago. His tag says ‘Boomer’.
    The # is disc. I had him checked for a chip, that showed another disc # but with an owner last name of Trevino. I’ve searched my neighborhood, contacted gets, listed him with 311. He is so playful and sweet but I cannot keep him. My elderly Schnauzer has health issues and is very upset about Boomer being here.
    Someone help. Tell me what to do. I must find Boomer a great home because he’s such a great, well behaved boy.
    Ty, Lisa

  2. I found this post on a friends facebook. If only I can post the picture. Poor babies if I lived in Texas I would help but I can’t. Please help

    Anybody interested in two very sweet cocker spaniels? My neighbors moved and left the dogs, they had not been groomed in four years since moving here, so i took them today to have teem groomed and will pick them up tonight. EP anal Control says they will take them but will only keep them for 4 days before euthanizing them. I hate to see that, but it might be better than being abandon. Call be or text me if you are interested. 915-479-3297
    This photo is pre grooming

    • Hi Claudia, you can post the dogs on the page be sure and include a photo, city, and contact email or phone, and any other info you have about the dogs. Also, if you look under Resources here, you’ll see a list of Texas purebred rescues including Cocker Spaniels. And … Karen at Harbored Souls (near Ft Worth) has a fondness for Cocker Spaniels, so be sure and alert her to them also. thanks for looking out for them!
