Puppy needs foster/permanent home ASAP! Take the Kitty Mowmow Save the Puppy Challenge!

March 27, 2008

My friend who provides foster care to cats asked me to pass this on to you, loyal reader of Kitty Mowmow’s Animal Expo.

Do you live within driving distance of Tuscaloosa, AL? Do you know someone who does? And would you or that someone like to give this adorable little puppy, named Galen, a foster or permanent home? Of course you do. 🙂


This is the Kitty Mowmow Save the Puppy Challenge: Let’s all work together to find a home for Galen! Call all your family, friends, and co-workers to see if they want to help her. Email me as soon as possible at kittymowmowsanimalexpo AT gmail DOT com and let me know that you want her.

Here’s some info about the Galen, given to me by the shelter:

galen-2-pix-1.jpgGalen, meaning “festive party” in Gaelic, is called that because she is such a joyful little thing. She’s a rescued puppy who during her very short life was chained to a fence with very little water or food, in all kinds of weather. When the guy who owned her released her, we took her to be kenneled and she has been there since last Friday. The nice woman who runs the place gave very favorable reports about her behavior. She said she placed a very, very large pillow in the kitchen and Galen climbed on it and slept all night without any barking. She also has had no accidents in the house. This has not changed. Her behavior is still stable, and the woman says she will make a wonderful pet. She said If she didn’t have so many dogs of her own she would keep her. Galen’s birthday was November 1, 2007, so she is just a little over 4 mos.old. She has had the complete series of shots, is heartworm free, and on her 1st heartworm medication, and is solid black. She will be spayed probably before 5 months old.

We need a temporary fostering situation, one that will enable her to say inside a house and continue to be socialized. She’s a terrific puppy. We will provide food,etc. Because of my strained finances involving animal rescue, it would be nice if the charge is low. I should mention that the woman keeping her committed to watching four other dogs over spring break, so she can’t keep galen later than Friday. Too little time to find her another place!!!


galen-2-pix-2.jpgThank you, thank you for the follow-through on Galen. I had to keep her with the woman who was kenneling her. Fortunately, a couple of people who had planned to keep their dogs with her during Spring break didn’t go away. I say “fortunate,” but it still is costing me an extra $105.00 for one week!!!!! Ordinarily, that wouldn’t be a problem, but we’ve been involved in lots of rescue lately. You know the story. Galen should be spayed like today–at least not more than five months of age. Anyone who fosters her would have to keep her from running around or rough-housing because of stitches. They’re usually removed at 10 days. I’m thinking of taking her to be spayed the end of this week or the beginning of next week, but I wish she had somewhere to go after that. I like [the place and the woman she’s currently staying with], but the $$$ is the problem. It may delay the spaying, if I don’t get a place for her.
