found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.
Shyla came to GU as part of the FWACC Rescue of 28 hounds
Of the eight hounds in GU's care: 8 tested positive for Ehrlichiosis, 5 for Anaplasmosis, 1 tested positive for Heartworms and all where loaded with intestinal parasites.
These special dogs will be listed as special needs to due to the extreame condition in which they were found and the ongoing medical treatment they require.
On Thursday July 8th, 2010, a rescue of what was thought to be 14 greyhounds took place in south Ft. Worth. When Ft. Worth Animal Care & Control arrived to pick up the hounds, it was discovered that there were actually 28 hounds, desperately in need of help. They were living outdoors in crates stacked on top of each other with no food or water.
Greyhound rescue was contacted immediately. The dogs were in very poor condition. They were covered with ticks. They were bone thin and many had pressure sores all over their bodies. Greyhounds Unlimited and GALT worked together, dividing the greyhounds between the two groups. GU took 8 hounds into their care. GALT took 8 as well.
The TGA (Texas Greyhound Association) was also involved. Many thanks to them and FWACC for their help in this desperate situation.
Funds are desperately needed to help with the medical care of these hounds - please open your hearts and make a difference in their lives.
