"This post is about putting ourselves in other peoples’/animals’ shoes, and what it would feel like for them: terrifying, excruciating. Harmful.
For billions of animals (people included) around the world, these events are incredibly damaging; it’s about honoring those different from us (even though you and I aren’t directly affected). That’s what this post is about. 🖤" Dr. Karen Becker, DVM

From us at the secondhand dog rescue we humbly beg you to comply with New York’s ban on anything that leaves the ground except professional displays. It’s nerve wracking for our pets and our vets. If in the city of Rochester and you can identify the persons setting off the fireworks and their address please call (585) 428-7230 at RPD and relay that information.

Have a blessed and quietly amazing 4th of July

We are going on a cat mission. The shelter has been able to move dogs out either by transport or adoption so quickly that euthanasia is not even a consideration. Now it's time to work on the cat population. Unfortunately we do not have a facility to house cats so this will require foster homes and lots of donations. We have been helping where we can but the funds just aren't there to make a big difference. We have applied for grants but we can't count on receiving them.

To be a foster requires so little and can be so rewarding. We can provide you with food, litter & litter box if needed and you provide them a safe environment and network their story with your friends and family until they find a forever home.

Please understand that this is NOT a Murray County program. I work for Murray County Animal Control but this is being done through the rescue, God Only Knows Animal Shelter.

Here is the plan:
First-recruit foster homes and have them ready. Also recruit people to transport cats to the vet and back.

First/Second/Third/etc-collect donations to pay for surgeries & rabies. We are budgeting $60 for each cat.

Third-Begin scheduling the appointments

Some cats are feral and prefer to live in the wild. These cats will be handled separately from the tame cats.

If you are interested in helping with any part of this please contact me at (706) 280-7653 or you can send a message here.

After way too long sweet Dash has found his home. We wish him and his new family many happy years together. Many of us will miss him but he deserves the best.

As we get closer to summer every year the number of bite cases that could be prevented typically increases. One of our main causes of bite cases is when a female in heat is nearby and male dogs will break out of whatever containment area they are in and go to the female. People try to break up fights or the male dogs become unusually aggressive and attack other animals or people. They can smell that scent for 3 miles.

Solution: As more and more animals are spayed / neutered we hope that the frequency of that issue will decline. But we also have to teach our children how to behave around dogs. During summer break they will be out of school and will be spending more time at home or playing in the neighborhood.

In October 2016 there was a medium sized dog at the shelter whose time was up. We brought her to our kennels and named her Maxine. She tested positive for heart worms so we put her thru the slow kill method knowing we may have her for 2 years before she tested negative. She settled into the routine at the kennel but preferred being in a kennel by herself. She went out for her playtime everyday but wasn’t big on much exercise.

In November 2017 Murray County Animal Shelter ended up with a dog that looked so much like Maxine but she did very well with the other dogs. The pound was so crowded and nobody had come for this little girl so we pulled her and brought to God Only Knows. She had funny little round ears so we named her Mouse. When we ran out of space we decided to house her with Maxine since they were about the same size.

They were BFFs in minutes. They played outside together, shared their covers and had no problems at all.

Fast forward a month or so. I need to move dogs out to be able to rescue more so I send Mouse picture to a Rescue in Atlanta. They say if she is heartworm negative they will take her. Not only is she neg she is also spayed. The weather delayed the transport but we were finally going to get her down there this coming week.

Until I get a message from one of our hardworking volunteers Friday night. Someone had seen her pictures from our adoption day a few weeks ago and swore that Mouse was her dog. She sent me photos of her playing with her kids, fishing, sleeping in the bed and there was no doubt this was where she belonged. I met them Friday night for a sweet tearful reunion. I kissed her goodbye and figured that was the end of it.

It wasn’t.

Our volunteer happened to mention to Mouse/Buttercups owners about her best buddy Maxine. They immediately contacted me and said they did not want to leave her behind. That any friend of Buttercups was a friend of theirs.

So she came with her 4 kids to meet Maxine. The kids went straight to her to pet and love on her. She couldn’t have responded better if she had been trained.

So that is all. I just wanted to share another example of why we do what we do.

Julie

Lots of thank yous to send out this morning: Over the weekend we got TWO BIG BOXES of dog treats from Patti Thornton and Blue Dog Bakery. These treats or so good & healthy for the dogs. Patti adopted 2 of the first dogs that we rescued and sent up north. They now have a great life in New York and we have a great supporter that helps keep us going!

Then yesterday we got a check in the mail from H.B. Fuller. This company encourages their employees to volunteer with non profits (not that she needs any encouragement). Crystal Deal has been doing so much for the dogs in Murray County for years.

On behalf of all of us at the shelter we want to thank Crystal & Patti and everyone else that is helping us improve the lives of Murray County animals.

Many thanks to Patti Thornton and Blue Dog Bakery for supplying the Murray County Shelter dogs with the best treats! These cookies smell so good-and the dogs love them to. Thanks for your continued support.

For those of you donating to God Only Knows for the Murray County Shelter dogs I wanted to let you know that we have begun purchasing vaccines for animal control. When puppies come into the shelter now they can be vaccinated immediately upon intake. This is another of the Target Zero recommendations being implemented. Thanks again for support of The Murray County Animal Shelter and all we are doing to give these animals a better chance at a long and happy life!

For those of you donating specifically for the kitties we continue to spay/neuter the adults when funds are available giving them more opportunities for adoption.
