URGENT Pets - Be a Hero

Animal Care Services is having ongoing technical difficulties with an online report we share daily with our rescue and network partners. Although ACS continues to work with the City’s IT team to address this issue, this specific report includes information on “pets at risk” for euthanasia due to housing capacity in our kennels.

This automated report from our shelter system has periodically been unable to load correctly for public access, and repeat download attempts have exacerbated the outages.

To support transparency, Animal Care Services has uploaded a dated report from our system that can be found at: saacs.info/urgentpets

Today, 13 pets were euthanized because of space constraints at the shelter.

Although these pets have been here past their legally required hold time, Animal Care Services does not have limitless capacity, and daily attempts are made to secure placement for all the eligible pets in the shelter. As an open admissions municipal shelter, ACS oversees placement for pets and public safety, which can be impacted when our kennels start to fill up.

As always, community partnership is key to helping us save lives. Please help. If you are interested in adopting a pet in our care, we require a 30-minute on-site interaction. You can visit our shelter seven days a week at 4710 State Highway 151.

If you are interested in fostering a pet, please complete our foster application: saacs.info/foster. ACS Foster Volunteers must have their personal pets up to date on vaccinations and spayed/neutered to foster an ACS pet.

If you are a rescue organization that is interested in becoming a rescue partner, please contact our Rescue-Foster team: [email protected]

Moscato is still learning how to dog in oh so many ways, but he had a rough start in life and is quickly learning what it means to be a family dog.

Lesson 1: Walking on leash. He seems to enjoy his walks now, but still isn't completely convinced that it can't be used as dental floss.
Lesson 2:PLAY!!!! This is his favorite lesson. He especially loves toys he can chew on. He gets super excited
Lesson 3: New people. He has learned that his foster people are good people, but he's still a little leery of new people at first.
Lesson 4: New dogs. TBD He went home with kennel cough so he's still social distancing, but his family has a feeling he will do good.
Lesson5: Crate training. This was tough at first because he loves to be with his foster family, but he now considers it his man cave and will hang out there without even asking.

Overall, Moscato is a great student and can't wait to move on to his higher education classes in his forever home.

Buck is the biggest cuddle bug you will ever meet! At about 60 lbs, he's still never met a lap he can't fit in. He has a goofy personality and loves to sleep upside down with his 3 legs in the air. Buck is extremely social and "talks" to people/dogs when he is happy. He has a lot to say these days! Buck prefers companionship and especially loves other dogs and children. He is almost fully recovered after having one of his hind legs amputated and he hasn't let his newfound tripod status slow him down one bit. He occasionally takes a spill when he gets the zoomies, but other than that, he has re-learned how to balance successfully and gets around like any 4-legged dog would. Buck loves water, tennis balls, squeaky toys, playing tug of war, and attention! He is extremely social and would be a wonderful addition to any active family. He would also very much love to have another dog to play with!

Roxy is such a goofball. She loves laying around all day with you but can also get out and run around for hours! She cracks us up because she snuggles like a human, I have never seen anything like it. She will climb in your lap and lay her head on your shoulder and just fall asleep. She is such a good girl and will follow the boundaries you set for her. She gets along great with our kids and our other bigger male dog. She is crate trained, potty trained, and knows how to sit. She takes her backyard guarding responsibilities very seriously, not a single squirrel will get by her. That being said, I would suggest a home without cats or pet rodents. If you are looking for a mid-sized, goofy good girl with a tail that won’t quit, Roxy is your girl.

Is it just us, or is it raining dogs?☔️🐶

We have an overwhelming number of moms with puppies this week and need to find them foster homes soon! Because we’re so limited on space, we’re in desperate need of foster volunteers.

Fostering pups with mom is easier than you think. You need to make sure they are comfortable, and mom has all her basic needs.

We ask you to open your homes for a few weeks until the puppies are old enough for spay/neuter surgery and adoption. As you can imagine, these babies usually have no trouble getting adopted; they need a loving home to give them the extra time to grow.

Fostering a mom with puppies sound like too much for you? No problem! Fostering any of our urgent large-breed dogs is also desperately needed. 🐾

Are you interested in opening your heart and home for a four-legged family in need? Please fill out an application at: saacs.info/foster.

If you are already an approved foster, you can email [email protected] with your interest to help.

Our shelter is nearing maximum capacity, and we urgently need foster volunteers. The number of animals we can save depends entirely on the number of people who open their homes and hearts to foster them.

Home for the holidays? What better way to have a shelter pet spend some time over the winter break enjoying some household festivities. Fostering is a family affair; everyone is involved and plays a part. That is the best gift you can give a shelter pet this year!

Please consider fostering, we need you, and our pets need you. Become a foster volunteer today, sign up at saacs.info/foster.

And, of course, ACS provides all the essentials, including food, supplies, and medical care, free of charge for our fosters!

--------------------

If you are interested in adopting, don’t forget our #EmptyTheShelters adoption event is running until the following Monday, December 20th. We have many great pets with reduced adoption fees waiting for their furever happy home!

Have you been looking at Jack Jack and wondering if you should meet him? We're here to tell you that you definitely should and this Saturday is your opportunity!

Jack Jack's favorite activities are snoozing on the couch, rolling in the fresh green grass, and playing in his kiddie pool. This handsome fellow is already potty trained, knows "sit" and "paw" commands, and is working on learning so much more. He does well around cats and has been doing well with the resident female dogs that are his size.

If you've had your eye on Jack Jack and you want to set up a meet and greet before everyone else gets to see him Saturday, email [email protected] and be sure to include his ID#, A612503.

**Update: Pulled by rescue**

Are you looking for a fun-loving, active pup to join your family? Come in today to meet miss Lola! She will be at ACS from 11-4:30 to meet you!

Lola has been living in a foster home and her foster parent says she does well with dogs, cats, and people. She loves to play and would make a great walking or running buddy. She is very loyal and obedient to her person.

Jack Jack has been living in a foster home and his foster family has wonderful things to say about him!

This beautiful boy is about 2 yrs old and SO ready for his furever home! He was found on the streets but over the past month has truly embraced the cush life of being an inside dog! He's SOOOOOO quiet, super down for a few minutes of snuggles, scritches, and kisses, but then this boy wants his own space and will curl up on the couch, melt into a puppy puddle on the floor, or even just hang out in his crate. He's always down to go for a walk, even in the rain!! He love Love LOVES to roll around in the grass and chew on his toys, and he's even grown accustomed to jumping in and out of his very own little kiddie pool on the porch. He doesn't bark at the neighbor doggos through the fence, but he is happy to alert you when someone is approaching the front door. He's learning leash manners, is potty trained, knows the sit and paw commands, and we're working on down and stay. While Jack Jack is super quiet pup, he's also got a perfect amount of fun-loving energy, loves to zoom around the backyard in short spurts, and is quite kitty curious (but hasn't ever tried to chomp, even when his foster brother hisses at him). We aren't quite sure yet if he's dog-friendly or not; however, we are identifying his comfort levels and working through those stressful moments so he can self-soothe. Jack Jack is SUCH a good boy and would do best in a home with someone who wants to love him unconditionally and provide a safe space where he never has to feel lost or abandoned again. Treats are always welcome, and adventures together are, too!

**Update: Grandpa Peewee has left with rescue**

Meet Grandpa Peewee. This elderly gentleman is in need of a loving home to call his own. Sadly, his owner passed away which has led him to stop eating and become depressed. He is being cared for by out awesome clinic team, but he would thrive in a home environment.

Please email our adoptions team at [email protected] for more info on Peewee A611391.
