What an awesome thread... I would love to take rico but I already have 2 long hair chi's (I am sure everyone has seen since I am not shy with posting their photo's). Since I live in a "no pets" building I can't get away with any more.
I actually adopted Bella, my little one from a fellow tPF'er just a little over a year ago. She is the best.
I just found this thread and it's very timely. I received an email this morning about a golden retriever boy about 10 months old who is in a need of a forever home here in NY. Breaks my heart because the description just sounds like he is being a puppy.. and I would really like to get him a place where he can be bonkers, but be loved!
Please PM me if you would like more information!
Here is the email I received:

Meet Griff! She's a young female purebred Boxer who needs a home. She is not spayed but all of her shots are current. She was brought home as a puppy to a family with small children and they decided she grew too big for their tatse. (Here is where Voodoo keeps her opinions to herself!)
She's very sweet and needs a place to call home!!
It's no secret that I'm a huge cheerleader of the Boxer breed and would love it if someone would give Griff a new home!
People living in Phoenix listen up please! My cat Maddox needs a good home. He is a male cat that is approximately 11 months old (on April 9, 2009). He has all of his shots, is microchipped, neutered and has his claws. He is very outgoing and would do best as an outdoor/indoor cat. Please PM me if you are interested or have any questions.
My friend who is trying to find a home for Frankie, a 4 year old border collie mix. Frankie's owner died last week and no one in the family will take him. He is located in Mesa AZ.
Frankie appears to be current on his shots, he is fixed, and very loving. He is white, with one white and one green eye..just striking he's very sad, missing his owner, a neighbor is feeding him but we need to find him a home.
We contacted various shelters and rescue groups, who have told us they are full.
Do you know anyone who would want to open their hearts and home to Frankie? Photo attached.
(I am posting this on behalf of my husbands friend. Please PM if interested!)
Our little kittens are 7 weeks old now and are just as cute and wild as can be!! We are planning to keep at least 3 of them and will probably be able to find homes for the rest, but I thought I'd give a shoutout to anyone in the Richmond, VA (and surrounding) area! Dropping them off at a shelter is NOT an option for us---we would rather keep them all than burden any already-strained animal rescue resource. I know I can trust you ladies and gents at tPF to be responsible and loving pet owners so if anyone is interested in acquiring a kitten in about 4 weeks, shoot me a PM!! Meanwhile we'll be getting the routine vet visits taken care of, including neutering/spaying if our vet will do them so young. Thanks!
We need to find Rico a home pretty quick. I've posted fliers everywhere, talked to everyone I know, nobody has any interest in him (well, there is interest, just no takers). I've even BEGGED my Mom to take him, but she wont. In a month or so it will be too hot for him to stay outside while we are gone . I soooo wish we could keep him!
