A lady in San Francisco passed away, leaving her beloved dog, Lulu behind. Her daughter took her with her to Downey where she now had to take care of her ailing aunt.

Please help them recover Lulu and reward will be offered!

A Beautiful Story About a Deaf Pit Bull!


This is about how the relationship between a rescuer and Gunther was formed. Pit Bulls make up the most in shelters across the nation with misperceptions and stereotypes against them. And then you add deafness to the breed, which makes it a double whammy. They are very loving dogs. More about Gunther and the rescuer, go to:

Home Needed for Deaf Lab/Pit Mix in NY

Adopt Kyrpto

From a FIDO Member

I've been involved with Animal Haven Shelter for over a year now. This former no-kill shelter has changed it's mission and policies to be a limited-intake adoption center with the possibility of humane euthanasia for many animals. What it boils down to is there are many innocent cats and dogs whose lives are now at risk- simply due to restructuring.

In particular, there's a dog named Krypto who needs to be placed as soon as possible. Krypto is a 3 year old Lab-Pit mix, and he is deaf. He's a very loyal companion, who's happy to show off sit and is really looking for someone to guide him. He gets along with other dogs, and anyone he meets, and he is also mostly housebroken. Because he is deaf, he will need someone who can learn to be his guide and help him when he gets scared. See his pix:

Additionally, there are over 100 cats and other dogs who are at risk and in need of a home.

If you or anyone you know might be able to help in placing these pets, please get in touch with me as soon as possible.
