Euthanasia List Still Activated Due to Shelter Being Overfull
A reader asked us to post this press release. If you know someone who can help, please pass this along.
There were no open kennels on Friday and so Monday unless folks come for dogs on their legal hold will most likely again bring some hard decisions, but, as always, the Shelter will only euthanize as many dogs as need to make room for incoming.
All rescue dogs area at risk. Please do not hesitate to contact Redwood Pals if a foster home is being offered – hopefully not all dogs on list will be euthanized.
TOTAL POPULATION LISTED ON PETHARBOR: 40
Unfortunately there continues to be around a dozen or so dogs that are not listed on petharbor (dogs on a bite hold or making their way through the administrative legal process for violations) and so there are too little kennels in dog hold which put the rescue dogs at risk of being euthanized.
ADOPTABLE DOGS: 19
RESCUE DOG ON THE EUTH LIST:
NEW DOGs ADDED:
JEWEL URGENTLY NEEDS A FOSTER HOME!
She is terrified in the Shelter and has been at the shelter since Sep 14, 2017. A kind kennel attendant, Jalin, is making friends with her as is Redwood Pals. She loves to play in the play pen which mostly likely is a predictor of her success on the outs.
Jewel was found on Samoa Beach in Humboldt County, CA

CATTLE DOG came in injured and fearful. This boy was reported to have been wandering in the Dinsmore area for several weeks before he was trapped. He was taken to the vet and was sedated in order to examine his wounds to his front leg. His leg has healed well. He is shut down in the Shelter. Staff and rescue think he is reachable, but in the chaotic Shelter environment, it may take longer than space will allow.

Jahnice may have a foster home with Redwood Pals, but the Shelter is just too full not to put a dog out there for back up placements – the price for the dog is just too high not to.
Email email@example.com if a person is interest in being a safety net for Jahnice.

This boy is on the euth list but does not as yet have a rescue sponsor. He has been euth listed for showing reactivity to other dogs in Shelter with the note by staff that: It was difficult to determine if he was being overly excited and vocal or was aggressive

EUTH LISTED DOGS FROM LAST EMAIL:
Paulie the Peke is in a Redwood Pals Foster home thanks to Cliff’s radio show on KHUM and Redwood Pal’s Jim doing the meet and greet. RPR’s Mara and groomers made sure he started his new life nicely groomed!
Tiger – real name Jack was pulled on a wing and a prayer by It’s a Dogs’ Life Rescue and has been accepted into Upward Hound Pet Rescue! Turns out Jack is a snuggle bug who loves everybody – dogs, cats, and all ages of people!
Previous post. Tiger is a young male adult that is #2 on the euth list because, while he and his intake mate Penelope were fine of intake, being kenneled together, they made a game of barking at anything that went by their kennels. It was not until today that we went to the Shelter to work with a few shy dogs and gave some high value treats to these two that Tiger give licks of the fingers after the treats were eaten. Tiger was also sweet to Mara of Redwood Pals. It was almost closing by this time, but Kennel Attendant Brittany trusted our instincts and we got Tiger out and in the play pen where we found Tiger to be a delightful young, very playful boy! From doing zoomies to playing tug we were delighted to find Tiger to be.

Penelope sadly was euthanized. It’s a Dog’s Life Rescue found a foster too late to save her.
We discovered too late to explore if Penelope who was play bowing and friendly to us – a stranger to her – would do as well as TIger out of her kennel. But the time TIger was back in the kennel it was closing time. Penelope also took treats nicely from Mara of Redwood Pals as well.

NOW IN ADOPTABLES AT THE SHELTER: QUINCEY (A083735)MaleBlackPit Bull Terrier and Labrador Retriver1 year, 6 months
We believe Titus went home to his owner or is in a Redwood Pals Foster home.
Titus passed his temperment test (people/food/dog issues), but drew the line at being microchipped and so he cannot go up for adoption. He was however previously able to be given his intake shelter shots and rabies shot.
Shelter staff describes Titus as a very sweet and calm dog.

BRODY URGENTLY NEEDS AN ONLY DOG FOSTER HOME!
Brody is not going up for adoption at the Shelter because of a food, water, toy resource issue. He came from a background where these were limited resources. For this reason an only dog home for Brody is being sought or a home that can kennel or separate Brody when food, water and toys are around.
Email email@example.com for more information about Brody.
