2 Colorado Municipalities have now repealed breed specific legislation. 5 more to go! Responsible dog ownership has proven to be far more effective for public safety than breed based legislation!
Visited detroit animal care and control on Valentine's day. It was an emotional rollercoaster and I was brought to tears multiple times..the problem our shelter experiences with cats they deal with for dogs. This day alone they had 203 dogs in there care and they say they sometimes get 100/ week coming through. We were able to bring 6 back with us this day and hopefully more to come but due to breed specific legislation we are limited on the ones we can help with...it felt awful as they brought us ones were interested in and we had to say looks to much like pitbull and the workers had to walk the happiest dogs back thinking maybe next time...I give those workers huge props for all they have to deal with and continuing to work every day and remaining so kind hearted. This sweet girl is one of the ones we got to bring with us and I have no doubt she will find her forever home fast.
Being a good dog mom, I carried this tree bark thing Axel found on his morning walk all the way home because he really really really loves it.. do your dogs love sticks, random leaves and tree bark they find outside MORE than their toys at home? 🙈
O hey ma, just making sure you’re alive in there. #bathroomcreeps
I’m currently battling the flu 😩 today is better than yesterday but my 5 days of funemployment before I start my new job went to a complete wash... of course this would happen. 😭 luckily I have some good nurses around here.
Trooper needs a foster home, can you help?
Trooper is an 8-10 year old pittie mix, he’s a very handsome elderbull. Trooper should be pampered through his golden years but unfortunately he sits on the concrete floor at a rural shelter wondering if anyone wants him. We know he’s not a cute fuzzy puppy that would get dozens of applications but Trooper is just as deserving. He has never had a real family or known a real home. He dog tested well but does chase cats. We would love to welcome Trooper into the pack but we need a foster home.
As always, CPC covers all medical, food, training and supplies you may need. We just ask you take Trooper into your home and treat him as one of your own. If you can’t foster please share! Let’s show Trooper some senior love 💕
