This is Lily - formerly known as Turbo - from West Valley. She is a volunteer favorite who was pulled by All Things Rescue. Unfortunately her first home didn’t work out and they are desperately trying to re-home her or find another foster. Please reach out to @all_things_rescue_agr if you are able to help. Here is how her first foster described the current situation with Lily: Pleading and begging again for Lily... after reaching out to over 150 rescues to help, no one has offered to take her. The rescue i was fostering her for does not have the resources for boarding and training her, and doesnt have a foster that can take a dog with behavioral issues. I have been crying over this dog for weeks now. I see so much of my cattledog mix, Raja, in her and why this "nipping" is happening. She has a lot of cattledog tendency in her, she is cuddly, funny, playful, dog friendly, loves water, hiking, running. She is so young and just needs a chance at the right home. Raja was the hardest dog I ever had, she did everything Lily is doing, but I didnt have young kids then and was able to keep her safe until she learned not to nip when people ran/approached her. If anyone anywhere can help or knows of any resources I, Lily, and everyone involved would be forever grateful. She is running out of time and cant stay at the place she is now She seems to do better with women than men, and although she was fine around my kids, I wouldnt trust her around very young children. #fosteringsaveslives #adoptdontshop #spayandneuteryourpets #spayandneutersaveslives #rescuedogs

RESCUE FOUND❤️ ❗️RESCUE NEEDED FOR 3 Approx 9 Week Old Kittens❗️ While LA Animal Services continues to practice a closed door policy on kittens and turning them away. Out in the real world where life keeps going, there are many individuals and groups who never stopped showing up for the animals, for the simple fact that there are animals who need help, especially kittens. Pandemic or not, this is also kitten season. A trapper TNR’d the mom in mid May and rescued her 3 babies. She has been socializing them and they now purr. They are still a bit shy and could use some extra human touch. They’ll have their first vaccine today. There is also $200 donation to rescue. 3 kittens. 2 boys 1 girl. Please let us know if you can help.

RESCUE FOUND❤️❗️URGENT❗️RESCUE NEEDED for TWO approx. 7 Week Old Kittens! These two precious babies were born on the streets along with a third sibling (who still needs to be trapped). They were left to fend for themselves when a Good samaritan trapped them to get them fixed. They are still young enough to be socialized and the hope is that a rescue can take them and help write a better future for them than a life on the streets. Please share and let us know if you can help.

❗️DONATIONS NEEDED❗️ Please donate to this amazing rescue @agwcrockinrescue who has been taking in many animals turned away by @laanimalservices. #repost Since the coronavirus started, we have rescued numerous animals that were found on the street, dumped, surrendered or abandoned! Most people, before they dropped off animals at AGWC had contacted the East Valley animal shelter for assistance. In many cases people were told that @laanimalservices would not take those animals in or that it would take about a week to get an appointment to surrender a stray dog or cat. Thats why these animals ended up at @agwcrockinrescue . Usually LA animal services provides vouchers in certain situations that will cover the spay and neuter surgeries. Unfortunately now they have decided to cut their budget and dont help people who rescue animals off the streets financially. Spay and neuter is important to avoid an even bigger overpopulation of animals. Rescue organizations already have so much more work nowadays that two major city shelters have shut down completely and the other four city shelters are only operating partially. Having this financial burden to cover all of these surgeries for every single individual while LA animal services is making profit selling breeders licenses (more than ever before) doesnt seem fair at all! If anyone wants to make a donation to help with these important surgeries, please donate over our website www.rockinrescue.org or Venmo: @agwcrockinrescue . Thank you so much for all your support! We appreciate every single one of you! 🙌❤️🐾 ******************************************* #spayandneuter #spayandneuteryourpets #spayandneutersaveslives #spayneuter #neuteryourpets #rescueanimals #catsofinstagram #dogsofinstagram #adoptdontshop🐾 #banbreeders

Does this dog look well cared for? Do you think thins dog is living a happy and healthy life? If you were inspecting potential pet sitters, would this owner pass your test? Would you be surprised if we told you Brenda Barnette thinks this dog is in the best home possible. Same woman who thought a husky on a balcony in this heat looks like “a show dog” (See previous post) Forget about contacting her, keep contacting the mayor and the members of Personnel and Animal Welfare Committee (see Profile for link: LA City Officials Email Addressws) and demand that they fire her. Remember to mention that 79% of public callers to last commissioners meeting 5/12/20 asked for her resignation and termination, but she just giggled her way thru it. We give Garcetti $47 million dollars *just for City of LA* animal services and this is the service we receive. We pay Brenda Barnette and her staff $25 million in just salaries and this is the service our animals receive. Our city deserves better. If theg can’t hear us now, please let the mayor and council members know, they will hear us come election time.

❤️ROCKY RESCUED ❤️Repost @guidrysguardian with @get_repost ・・・ We have great news and bad news! The great news is that @angels4animalsla was able to get SENIOR ROCKY out of the shelter and save his life! Amazing work by @lpkrieger, @galgarrick & Diane DeStefano! The bad news is very fixable. ROCKY ( #A1903821), was in foster care the last 7 weeks but his fosters had to return to work. When he was taken back to the shelter, he hurt himself with improper shelter wiring in the kennel. No dog should ever be in a position to hurt themselves in a shelter. ROCKY is on his way to the vet to get a full checkup. He needs a full medical exam and significant dental work. To those of you who have donated, THANK YOU. We still need help paying for this sweet senior’s medical care. Please donate directly to guidrysguardian.org or give.cornerstone.cc/guidrysguardian. PLEASE put SENIOR ROCKY in the donation comment section. Thank you. Once healed, ROCKY needs a forever home. #ggfpup #guidrysguardianfoundation #guidrysguardian #angels4animalsLA #seniordogsofinstagram #seniordog #shelterdog #fosteringsaveslives #adoptdontshop.

❗️DONATION NEEDED❗️ Rocky was at West Valley Shelter. Fostered then returned, and now at West LA Shelter. Please see our profile for donation link. Thank you! Repost @guidrysguardian with @get_repost ・・・ ROCKY seems to be a popular pup name for us lately! He, like our other two pups named ROCKY, needs a forever home. He also needs a bit of medical work, particularly regarding dental. But this sweet 10-year-old senior was in a foster home for the last six weeks. With his foster going back to work, he’s landed back in the shelter. It breaks our 💔 that he was in a home and now he’s back in jail, confused and scared. Please donate to help us get him out! Donate at guidrysguardian.org or give.cornerstone.cc/guidrysguardian. Please put “Senior ROCKY” in your donation comments. Thank you. He had a GREAT review from his foster: “We fostered Rocky for 7 weeks from April 1, 2020 to May 14, 2020. There aren’t enough words that can be said about the loving, gentle, and sweet nature of this dog. Rocky is senior who just wants to curl up on the couch, put his head on your lap, and take a nice nap. On our first day with him, we were watching him closely to see how he would react to different situations: a bath, my cat, loud noises, etc… There was no need. In the two months we had him, he didn’t resist or react badly to bathing, mingling with my cat, being picked up, or hearing startling sounds, and he always greeted new people with his outgoing, friendly disposition. Rocky is incredibly low maintenance. All he needs is a blanket to lie on and multiple pats, preferably under his chin, throughout the day. He loves to play keep away with tennis balls and boy, does he love his walks! Although he sometimes pulls on his leash when other dogs/wheels come by, watching him walk with his tongue hanging out and a smile on his face is an activity we looked forward to everyday. It was so easy to fall in love with Rocky because all he wants is to be loved. It’s impossible not to see the beautiful soul inside this dog when he looks at you with his big brown eyes, and I know anyone who spends time with him will fall in love with him too.

RESCUED BY @hitlivingfoundation ❤️ 🆘AT THE SHELTER SINCE JUNE 2019! BLUE, 8 Year Old Sweet Girl NEEDS HELP❗️ Blue’s family lost their home and couldn’t take her. So she ended up where the homeless animals went, the shelter. Blue is a very sweet, friendly girl. She greets everyone with a happy smile and wagging tail. She pulls a bit on leash, but who could blame her because she is excited and eager to see the world. Blue knows the sit command and she loves to play ball. Her owner said that she lived with children (10 years and older) and she was great with everyone! Owner said that she should be the only dog in a home, and no cats either since she likes to chase them. Blue experienced lameness in her hind legs on occasion. The shelter vet couldn’t figure out what was wrong with her, so she had to spent a great deal of time in the kennel for cage rest when she was at West Valley. Poor girl... She’s been at the shelter for almost a year and it is especially hard for older dogs like her. Please help. East Valley Shelter 818-756-9323 BLUE - ID #A1688986 a spayed female, about 8 years old, weighs approx 52 lbs.

This security guard who made sexist comment to a member of the public is no longer at West Valley Shelter. He will not be telling women not to worry about animals and instead go find husbands. Thank you to all who wrote to mayor and shared this story. A big special thank you to the brave women who came forward and made public statements about this man. Brenda Barnette praised him as a hero, but there is no room for sexism in 2020. Next to go is Brenda herself. Please continue to write the mayor and councilmembers and commissioners. We can make a change when we unite. Let’s not take out foot off the gas now! Brenda has got to go. #firebrendabarnette #losangeles

79% of the people that called in during open public comment today, called for Brenda Barnette’s immediate resignation or termination. Does anyone have a contact at mayor’s office or know of a journalist that can expose this on a bigger platform. True to form, Brenda Barnette immediately followed public comments section with more lies. It is obvious she needs to be terminated. By the way, the additional lies are ludicrous because there are public records to prove it...which explains why she now finds CPRA (California Public Records Act) “abusive”. You are in the wrong sector if you find CPRA an abusive process. Our city doesn’t want you. We pay a pretty penny, so we deserve better. You are a stain on our city’s history. Thank you to all community members who took the time to call. We appreciate it.

By the way, the additional lies are ludicrous because there are public records to prove it...which explains why she now finds CPRA (California Public Records Act) “abusive”. You are in the wrong sector if you find CPRA an abusive process.  Our city doesn’t want you.  We pay a pretty penny, so we deserve better.  You are a stain on our city’s history.  Thank you to all community members who took the time to call.  We appreciate it.
