Ruff Ruff! My name is KANDI
|Breed:||German Shorthaired Pointer/Pointer Mix||Color:||Brown/Chocolate - With White||Age:||Adult|
|Size:||Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)||Sex:||Female|
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
On May 5, 2011, Kandi and her companion were found abandoned in an industrial area in Pico Rivera, CA, without food or water. Fortunately, they were found and Kandi received her name as she was lured with candy that day so that she could be caught. For nearly two years, Kandi has been cared for and sheltered at a veterinary clinic in Alhambra. While her companion found a home within two weeks, Kandi has been passed over time and time again.
Despite being unwanted and spending most of her time in the kennel cages, Kandi has remained affectionate and hopeful. Athletic, graceful, and full of play - she's the perfect dog for an avid hiker, walker, runner, etc. Given a little time, she'll get on well with other fur siblings. She is food-motivated and has an aptitude for obedience training. Her eyes are filled with hope that one day she too can have a forever home that loves her as much as she can love them.

Rescue Group Info...
United Hope for Animals is a 501c3 non-profit organization committed to creating a world where our relationship with animals is guided by compassion and responsibility. We actively work toward bringing an end to the needless suffering of companion animals through community-based programs here at home and across the border.
The statistics are sobering: Together, one unspayed female dog, her unaltered mate and their offspring can produce 67,000 dogs in six years. Even with its prevalent spay/neuter programs, the United States euthanizes more than 6 million dogs and cats each year. Through our Shelter Support Program, we work in partnership with local shelters to reduce this number by raising public awareness about the overpopulation crisis faced by shelters, facilitating rescue and adoption of sheltered animals, and, in the process, bringing identity and dignity to the many lives that would otherwise pass anonymously through an overburdened animal control system.
Across the border, we sponsor a regular Spay/Neuter clinic to provide spay/neuter services to families who could not otherwise afford them, and through our Pererra program work to provide a humane and gentle passing to pets who have no other options.
