This email is going around, wondering if anyone knows of any rescues?

Next - I just need resources. I am not asking for your rescue to intake this poor guy, but here is the story that we have so far...

I received a call from one of our cat adopters stating that she came home one day about two weeks ago and found a note saying:



"Please take care of our baby."



In the back yard, she found what appears to be a partially (if not fully) blind, pure bred cocker spaniel.





She is not allowed to have dogs and was only approved for one cat. Her landlord has temporarily allowed her to keep him, but only OUTSIDE while she finds the poor little guy a home. Her (and his) time is running out. He needs a home. He deserves better, but they all do...



He is tan and about 25 or so pounds. If you know anyone willing to give a blind dog a home, please contact Stephanie Burke 918-812-9551



This is frustrating. I hate what people do to their animals. Please let me know if you can help. I will be trying other resources as well. Our rescue doesnt have the facilities to help, so I am doing this on my own. Thanks a ton.


For the animals,

Maureen

I am in OKC. I know of Okie Dokie Cocker Rescue and Enid Cocker Rescue.

That is about it though. I hope someone helps this boy out. I could help out in transport, or keeping him for a few days, but I don't know about long term.

Poor boy :sad

This kind of thing makes me sick to my stomach. :bang

I cared for a very infirm, deaf and blind Cocker girl until I lost her at almost 15 years old, and don't regret one moment of having her in my life. :hp

How could someone do this? :mad

I live in Tulsa but am at my pet capacity right now (according to my landlord, not me :cry ).

I can't take him into my home but I will print his picture out and hang it up in our breakroom to see if anyone is looking for a furever friend.
I work with some very kind hearted people so we will see.

I cannot believe that someone would just dump him in someones yard like that?!?!?!

Praying very hard that one of our rescues in the area can help with this little guy.
That just breaks my heart.

This is such a sad story. It breaks my heart. Why don't people think about those situations before getting a pet :dk

I hope he finds a forever loving home, he deserves better than that for his old days.

I live close to tulsa and could help transport, but babe would not put up with another dog. Racking my brain to think of someone who could take him inside for awhile.
