#139299 Ethan Labrador Retriever Mix? SENIOR MALE HAS RESCUE COMMITMENT! 10 years old, 52 lbs. Ethan was adopted from here 9 years ago, and returned as a stray. His owners did not come for him. Ethan seemed to have some pain in his back end, and we thought he might have had some issues with his teeth. However, our vet didn't find anything wrong with his mouth, and the arthritis in his back end seems fairly mild. Ethan is very sweet and gives kisses on his terms, but turns and snaps with restraint. This is what our evaluation staff had to say "SWEET FRIENDLY GUY. SOUGHT OUT ATTENTION, WANTED TO BE CLOSE, GAVE KISSES. DID NOT ALLOW SAFE HUG-STIFFENED, NERVOUS, WHIPPED AND SNAPPED. FOOD MOTIVATED, TOOK TREATS GENTLY. NO BARRIER, MET OTHER DOGS NICELY". https://www.facebook.com/IACSRescue/photos/a.2030917743648816/3358912767515967/?type=3&theater

NINE RABBITS NEED RESCUE! We had five more bunnies arrive in addition to the four that were already waiting for rescue.


RESCUE ONLY!
Total Pledges: Daisy - $10, Belladonna - $10, Bella Rex - $10, Gemini - $10


We need help finding placements for them. They are not altered, so that would need to be done by the pulling rescue.


TOP RIGHT- Goose, male 5 lbs. Goose was found as a stray. Very social.


TOP MIDDLE - Slim Shady, male. Owner had several rabbits and didn’t want them inside anymore so let them go outside…and they went under the fence and were running loose.


TOP RIGHT - Lolita, female. Lolita was owner surrendered. Owner said she was supposed to be a mini and had gotten too big☹


MIDDLE LEFT -  Daisy, female. 6 lbs. Daisy was surrendered because of landlord. Nice bunny. Nervous but can be handled.


MIDDLE CENTER - Freud, male. Owner had several rabbits and didn’t want them inside anymore so let them go outside…and they went under the fence and were running loose.


MIDDLE RIGHT - Luther, male. Owner had several rabbits and didn’t want them inside anymore so let them go outside…and they went under the fence and were running loose.


BOTTOM LEFT - Belladonna, female Lop. 4 yrs. Owner surrendered because of landlord. Belladonna is skittish here.


BOTTOM MIDDLE - Bella Rex. female Rex. 6 lbs. Surrendered by owner because of a move. Inquisitive and social.

#300796 Mia Pit Bull Terrier Mix Adult Female MEDICAL URGENT! OWNER SURRENDER! EMACIATED! HAS $315 in PLEDGES FOR RESCUE!  2 years old, 28 lbs! HW negative. Mia was surrendered last night by her owners. They said she had gotten into asbestos twice in the past 3 weeks, and now will not eat or drink. They said when she does eat, she vomits it up. She is alert and tail wagging and very sweet, but as you can see by the picture, very very thin! Our vet did radiographs and saw large amount of digesta in GI tack, and no evidence of a foreign body. We are only able to monitor here at the shelter so we are hoping she can find URGENT rescue and get further diagnostics!

#298460 Sebastian Mixed Breed Adult Male MEDICAL RESCUE ONLY! HAS $440 in PLEDGES FOR RESCUE + $500 to an All-Volunteer Rescue! 7 years old,  55 lbs. HW negative. Sebastian was brought in as a stray on Halloween. He was adopted out mid-November, and then returned as a stray with a large gash across his back. New owner could not be reached and did not come to look for him. The gash has now healed, and he was on our adoption floor, but we have discovered he will likely need TECA surgery (total ear canal ablation). We had been treating him for ear infections, but still very stenotic so placed on rescue only for now. Sebastian is such a sweetheart! He is a volunteer favorite. He was part of a Fall photo shoot with volunteers just before he was adopted, and is just about the cutest thing ever! https://www.facebook.com/IACSRescue/photos/a.2030917743648816/3355706327836611/?type=3&theater

#300109 Sassy German Shepherd Dog YOUNG Female RESCUE ONLY! OWNER SURRENDER! HAS $75 in PLEDGES FOR RESCUE! 8 months old,  63 lbs. HW negative. Sassy was owner surrendered because of landlord. She has not lived with other animals. Owner said she is friendly with kids. Sassy has been timid with staff here, and did whip and snap with handling during her evaluation for the adoption floor. Sassy will need some time to feel comfortable, or maybe just needs out of the shelter before she will be comfortable. Sweet girl and very affectionate. Needs to get out of the shelter!  https://www.facebook.com/IACSRescue/photos/a.2030917743648816/3318138524926725/?type=3&theater
#300226 Princess Pit Bull Terrier Mix YOUNG Female RESCUE! OWNER SURRENDER! HAS $125 in PLEDGES FOR RESCUE!  1 year old, 45 lbs. HW negative. Princess had been tethered outside with a leash wrapped around her neck-no collar. She could not place any weight on her front leg. We attempted to work with the owner allowing time for a vet visit. Unfortunately she was not taken to the vet, and the owner surrendered her to us after a few days. The owner said she had gotten loose a few days before and came back limping so we are unsure how she was injured. Our vet took radiographs and said she has an oblique, possibly spiral fracture but does not appear to involve either joint. He recommended cage rest for a few weeks. She is still limping considerably and not wanting to place much weight on that leg, so we are posting for rescue so she can get into a calmer environment. Princess LOVES giving and receiving affection. She loves to give hugs as you can see in the photo. Very sweet girl! https://www.facebook.com/IACSRescue/photos/a.2030917743648816/3342733062467271/?type=3&theater
#299778 Kenzi Mixed Breed YOUNG Female RESCUE ONLY! NEEDS LEG AMPUTATION OR ORTHOPEDIC SURGERY!  HAS $1,095 in PLEDGES FOR RESCUE! 1 year old, 40 lbs. Spayed. Kenzi was found as an injured stray. She was limping and not bearing any weight on her back leg. She also had an open wound on her front leg. Our vet stapled up the wound, but she would not leave the area alone, and another surgery was performed (and she was spayed as well). She has still been limping after a few weeks, so rads were taken and vet says unremarkable, however under sedation, he was able to palpate laxity and crepitus. Our vet recommends amputation, or orthopedic surgery. Kenzi is a silly, social happy gal. She talks a lot at her cage and is very interested in everything going on around her. She seems to have some puppy energy, and having been caged and leashed walked these last few weeks, she is becoming eager to run and play. Hoping to get her into rescue ASAO so she can move on with healing!  https://www.facebook.com/IACSRescue/photos/a.2030917743648816/3342734189133825/?type=3&theater

#300184 Blue Bell Pit Bull Terrier Adult Female RESCUE ONLY! SAD - OWNER PASSED AWAY! HAS MASSES ALL OVER BODY AND TEETH ARE DETERIORATING! HAS $380 in PLEDGES FOR RESCUE + $350 to an All-Volunteer Rescue! 7 years old, 73 lbs. HW negative. This girl is so sad it just breaks our hearts. Her owner passed away. The landlord said the dog had been through a lot as another person in the home had also died just before the owner passed. Landlord said Blue Bell had lived with 2 small dogs at one point. Blue Bell seems very shut down and insecure at the shelter. She came out of her kennel willingly, and was easy to walk on leash. She was not interested in toys, or treats, or affection. She just sort of stared at the windows and looked around. There is such a sadness in her eyes. Blue has masses all over her body. One on her back foot, one hanging down from her underarm. She has some mammary masses. Our vet also noted her teeth are deteriorating. Blue is going to need some vetting for sure, and we are hopeful she can find rescue very quickly before she shuts down even more. UPDATE: Here are the results of Blue Bell's dog test. Soft approach, met nicely, nice manners. After meeting just walked away and ignored other girl.  https://www.facebook.com/IACSRescue/photos/a.2030917743648816/3318229018251009/?type=3&theater
