Please cross-post!

<span style="color: #FF0000">This GSD can be euthanized at 8:00 am on July 17th if a rescue can’t take it before then. </span> Anyone who can help must call Animal Control before 5:00 on July 16th to get a hold on the dog so it won’t be gassed the next morning. They can contact Animal Control at 704-922-8677, take option 4, and reference Tag #4607

I will be out of the office beginning this Friday, July 18th, and will be gone the following week. I will not have access to email during this time. Please check the Gaston County Animal Control website during this time to see if any other GSD’s come into the shelter. Any GSD rescue group can pull thru the ALGC for no adoption fee for any pets marked as “others”.

The website for Gaston County Animal Control is: http://www.co.gaston.nc.us/AnimalControl/PetAdoption.htm Click where it says to view adoptable pets… Pets marked as “others” are in the non-adopts and can only be pulled by rescue groups. Please note the “release date”… this is the date that “others” will be euthanized.. you must call AC and get a hold on them BEFORE the release date or they will be euthanized that morning before AC opens to the public.

If you need to reach me you can call 704-678-6639.

Thanks for any help you can give!

Re: GASTON COUNTY NC ANIMAL CONTROL - Sable Male

I called GASTON COUNTY NC ANIMAL CONTROL and they provided me with a bit more information on this boy.

The complaintant that called AC said he was aggressive. However, I was able to speak with the kennel staff and several people said he has actually been quite good with the staff, "friendly boy". They also volunteered that he is not charging the kennel gate when other dogs are walked by.

Now, all this means is that this boy needs/deserves a temp test, but he is in OTHERS (not the adoption floor) simply because the complaintant said he was aggressive.

He is scheduled to be gassed on Thursday morning before AC opens to the public. There is pull help available to a reputable rescue.

Re: GASTON COUNTY NC ANIMAL CONTROL - Sable Male

This shelter is quick to put dogs in Others. Almost 100% of the dogs who end up there are put in Others from having fleas, to their color, to their breed, to not enjoying being yanked around on those f-ing catch poles, to whatever you can think of. "Perfect" dogs end up in the Others section as well.

Also, be careful who you ask to temp test b/c some of them don't know jack.

He is GORGEOUS!
When I spoke with Jarnee earlier this week, she is overfilled.

Re: GASTON COUNTY NC ANIMAL CONTROL - Sable Male

This dog was not exposed to Parvo....parvo was in a dog pulled last Friday, and it was in a female puppy pen. Just FYI.

I am able to help pull and transport to a vet if needed.
