True Meaning Of Family – Stray Cat Takes Day-Old Puppy Off The Streets

HuffPo: Earlier this year, we wrote about the interspecies love between a cat called Lurlene and a pit bull puppy called Noland.

Now, six months later, the Cleveland Animal Protective League, the organization that rescued the pair, has won a $25,000 grant from the Petco Foundation’s ‘Holiday Wishes Grant Campaign’ contest.

A humane officer from the APL had stumbled upon a day-old pit bull covered in fleas in a Cleveland garage, Cleveland.com reported. When the officer couldn’t find his mother, she took the puppy to APL.

The team decided to place Noland with Lurlene, who had also been taken off the streets and had recently given birth to four kittens.

Molly, Noland’s mother, was discovered later that day looking anxious and famished. Her owner, who was later convicted of animal neglect, had her chained up behind the home.

Since Molly was unable to care for Noland herself and he’d been getting along so well with Lurlene and her kittens, they decided to have the puppy stay with Lurlene’s family in a foster home until he was old enough for adoption. He would occasionally go back to the shelter to play with his mom.

"Noland blended in with the family so well, he was even found using the litter box a few times," Judy Hunter, APL’s director of development, wrote to Petco.

Eventually, he was placed in a foster home with puppies his age where he learned how to be a dog.

Sharon Harvey, APL’s director, said their story encompasses all of APL’s values, including "learning from them about the power of forgiveness and unconditional love and acceptance. And when you get right down to is," Harvey told Cleveland.com, "that’s really what it’s all about, isn’t it?"

Puppy Rescued Just Inches from its Life on Moving Belt

A puppy rescued from a recycling center shocked workers at the San Francisco plant, Recology…

Gempuppy.jpg

By Marion Algier – JOMP

ABC News reports Dec. 24, Christmas Eve, that a three-month old apricot poodle mix puppy, Gem dubbed the Miracle Puppy, was within inches of her life when a plant worker noticed her on the conveyor belt moving heavy landfill materials on Friday. He hit the emergency brake and the pup was saved.

A puppy was rescued from a recycling center that specialized in heavy debris.

Recology Recycling Center

The young dog is named Gem and has numerous offers to adopt her. To say she has a second chance at life is an understatement! Recology is a recycling plant for especially heavy debris, such as concrete, metal and lumber. It amazed workers just how that this puppy rescued from the recycling center even made it that far in the process. There are about 400 tons of construction material filtered through the plant on any given day. The fact that Gem made it to the conveyor belt alive is a miracle on its own. It is believed that the puppy was put in a garbage bag and thrown into a dumpster reserved for construction material, the report said. When a garbage truck loaded everything up, it was dumped into the landfill. In the whole process, Gem had made it through a shaker screen that removes excess dirt before falling down a 20-foot shoot that put her in the landfill. Talk about one harrowing ride for anything, let alone an innocent puppy.

While riding along the conveyor belt, Gem went through the shaker screen which removes excess dirt and was on her way to a 20-foot fall down a shoot to end up in a landfill. Trash sorter, Greggory Foster, noticed something moving as Gem was making her way down the conveyor belt.

“I was on the line working on the conveyor belt and there was a black trash bag coming down the line,” Foster said. “It had a hole in it and I could see it moving.”

He hit the emergency break and that is when the puppy was rescued from the recycling center.

“My coworker and I climbed up on the line,” he said. “We pulled her out the bag and she was wet, bleeding, frightened and shaking.”

The San Francisco Department of Animal Care and Control was called in after Foster and a co-worker helped make Gem comfortable.

"Gem suffered bite wounds on her body, conjunctivitis in her eye and lameness in her legs," the report said. She is expected to make a full recovery. She was named Gem because she is a "diamond in the rough."

SFACC said they have over 70 requests to adopt the puppy rescued from the recycling center. They are also asking the public for any information regarding Gem. They would like to speak with her previous owners only to ask a few questions in assuring she gets the best home possible.

Santa Photos With Fido or other Furry and Feathered Friends

Many places these days offer photos for pets with Santa. Some do better jobs than others!! Even within a chain like PetsMart or Petco, the quality of the photos vary with the group contracted to do the photos in individual stores. (They are often amateur volunteers sponsored/run by local rescues inside the store) And remember, most are Polaroid, so if they come out well have them copied or scan them in.

At our local Petsmart, you basically get a Polaroid of your dog sitting on Santa’s lap. Others may have a higher quality set up and better photographers, but don’t count on it. Most allow and even encourage you to be part of the photo. And some will let you snap a few shots with your own camera as well (as long as you purchase one of theirs as well).

Some local malls have special ‘pets day(s)’ with the mall Santa and even some smaller pet store chains do Santa photos. The special “pictures with Santa” days during which dogs, cats and pets in general are allowed inside the mall is usually in the evening or off hours. They are also usually sponsored by a rescue, so the proceeds go to a good cause. The pictures are usually okay, but not great. Nothing to write home about, but when you have x amount of dogs waiting in line and lots of stuff going on, even the best photographer may not manage making your dog look like Lassie, RinTinTin or the Beverly Hills Chihuahua… after all half the kiddie photos aren’t much better. But it is fun to have a photo with Santa no matter what!

Some of the photos of ourselves, our kids and our furkids with Santa aren’t the greatest, but as the years go by the old ones seem to get better and better! Winking smile And, over the years we have managed to get a few cute ones too!

Angel and Santa - Good

Some places will allow you to bring your own camera and take a shot as long as you buy their package. And definitely always, like with the human kids, be ready prepared to end up in the photo along with your pet(s).

Santa pet photos are usually with dogs, but I’ve seen people come in with cats, bunnies, ferrets, pot belly pigs, birds, and even a fish bowl but I would suggest coming in at a slow time to do that, or the cats and birds will be spooked and even try to run or fly away.  We had a greycheek, Poly, that was tame and friendly as can be that flew out the front door because she was afraid of Santa.  I did see a Santa come for the day to an exotic bird shop where people came with their large parrots and cockatoos.

Even with dogs, remember there will often be lots of dogs in line and Santa can be a scary figure to some, just like he is for some children!

Some of the best Christmas and holiday photos are done at home or better yet by a professional; in a private session.

PetsMart and Santa Paws are just a few programs that take Pet Photos with Santa. Often the proceeds go to help homeless pets in shelters and rescues or to supply needy families with food and needed supplies.

Merry Christmas… the Season has begun!

Critter for Christmas Gift… Not Best Idea! unless you know the person wants a pet and which one or kind they want; taking them to the shelter, a rescue or pet store and allowing them to choose the pet is always the best idea!!

Often Photos taken at home (without Santa) are the the cutest and the least stressful!!

‘Miracle’ dog that survived gassing headed to Rose Parade

Daniel the shelter dog who refused to die gets his own float at California parade after warming nation’s heart by emerging from pound’s gas chamber wagging his tail

  • Daniel was put in box filled with carbon monoxide with 17 other dogs
  • Survival prompted workers to name him after biblical character, Daniel, who survived lion’s den
  • Will star at the Rose Parade on New Year’s Day in Pasadena, California

NEWARK, N.J. –  Things are coming up roses for a scrappy beagle from New Jersey who survived a dog pound gas chamber.

Daniel will be among eight shelter dogs riding on a float in the Rose Parade on New Year’s Day in Pasadena, Calif.

Daniel was 6 months old when he was slated to be euthanized in 2011 at an animal control facility in Florence, Ala.

He surprised workers by emerging unscathed from a container that had been filled with carbon monoxide.

Daniel has been living happily ever since with his adopted family in Nutley, N.J.

He’ll perform tricks with other animal shelter survivors on a parade float sponsored by the Lucy Pet Foundation, which runs a mobile spay and neuter clinic.

The miracle dog that wagged its tail after surviving a gas chamber, warming the nation’s heart, has been given his own float at a New Year’s Day parade.

Daniel, a beagle mix named after the biblical figure who survived the lion’s den, was six months old when he was placed with 17 other dogs into a stainless steel box in Alabama filled with carbon monoxide.

Now, at the age of two, the animal – described as ‘one of the most joyous, happy dogs’ – is to star in the Rose Parade, held in Pasadena, California, which is one of the United States’ biggest celebrations.

After Daniel survived his gas chamber in Florence, Alabama, he was adopted by Joe Dwyer from New Jersey

The box which Daniel was put in to, roughly the size of a pickup truck bed, was filled with carbon monoxide – however Daniel emerged frightened but unscathed, still wagging his tail after the scary experience.

Following the media storm that ensued Daniel the ‘miracle’ dog was immediately adopted by Joe Dwyer, a motivational speaker from Nutley, New Jersey.

Mr Dwyer described Daniel as 'one of the most joyous, happy dogs I've ever met in my life'

‘He’s in extremely good shape, especially in light of what he went through,’ his new owner Joe Dwyer, 50, said when he got his dog.

‘His attitude is just incredible.’

His owner said Daniel’s story of survival and thriving has prompted laws in 31 states that protect shelter animals against inhumane forms of euthanasia.

Daniel, who will be on the float along with seven other dogs, will perform his ‘high five to keep pets alive’ trick and perform with his companions.

The float is sponsored by the Lucy Pet Foundation, which runs mobile spay, neuter and adoption clinics across the United States.

Mr. Dwyer said Daniel has been chosen as a ‘spokesdog’ for the organization.

‘He’s definitely one of the most joyous, happy dogs I’ve ever met in my life,’ his owner said.

‘I think his positive attitude is why he’s survived.’

The popular Rose Parade is known and watched across the United States.

It has been running for nearly 125 years and hundreds of thousands of people visit Pasadena for the show each year.
