A Holiday Adoption Can Save This Life

Georgie is a victim of ignorance and neglect, but his warm heart and sweetness still shines through.

Be an angel this season! The first time you lay eyes on Georgie you will gasp.  Then, without thinking, the words "How could anyone let this happen to their dog?" will come out. 

Sadly, Georgie is a victim of ignorance on the one hand and total neglect on the other. He's still a beautiful dog, given that he weighs only 40 pounds and has skin that has been ravaged by scratching. A tall and handsome lab mix, with a sleek, long body, Georgie is getting extra feedings at the shelter, wolfing down the grub that has been denied him for too long. 

Yet, even with this voracious appetite, he will let you maneuver his bowl or add to it as he devours the needed calories. There is no food aggression whatsoever  --  just hunger. 

As for Georgie's coat, there are patches of fur missing on the back, the legs, the ears.  An owner who kept him out of doors, said they had "no time" for him, and never noticed his bald spots. 

The good news is that with proper diet and flea treatment, Georgie can regain the glorious, shiny coat that he was meant to have. This boy has such sweetness in him. Though still fearful of loud noises and the unknown, Georgie cuddles close and gives some fleeting kisses. He is curious about the world, ready to meet new friends. He's an absolute dream on a the leash, prancing along like he's in a competition. 

Georgie has been kenneled alone so that he can get extra food but, when other dogs are present, he's good-natured and non-chalant.

He's a dog who truly deserves to live a posh lifestyle and I know he will be so appreciative of any kindness you might offer him in your home.  Georgie's ID number is A1362155.  His status at the shelter is very urgent!

please someone adopt Georgie and give him a happy holiday. I can't because of my inability to walk one dog, forget two. I'd be glad to pay for some of his expenses. Please.. The Godmother

Georgie is the great mellow, easy age of 5! If anyone wishes to help him but can't adopt him, you can pledge a donation to a rescue group to encourage them to take him out! This is a wonderful way to help, it makes a huge difference in whether a dog lives or dies. Many rescue groups are struggling to hang on financially, many times it does come down to available funds. Please contact Andrea anytime you see a dog that you want to help and pledge a donation!

Please remember this and SUPPORT our LA Shelter system. Innocent, loving animals depend on us to give them homes > "Over 50,000 animals pass through Los Angeles’ six city-run shelters each year. Of those, about 40 percent—around 30 percent of dogs and 60 percent of cats—receive lethal injections. " Katherine Davis
