The following was posted on my Facebook timeline by the Save the Contra Costa County Shelter Dogs:VERY URGENT, SCHEDULED FOR EUTH ON TUESDAY morning, July 18 – 2 yr old pittie mix JUDE #A890172 needs his luck to change fast if he is to make it out of CCAS alive. He came into the shelter after a fight with another dog that left him with injuries to his head and front legs. Then he came down with a bad case of kennel cough. And now he is offline and headed for euth on Tuesday unless a rescue/foster miracle somehow happens for him before then! His temp test notes are say he is “pushy and challenging” but volunteers only saw a friendly playful dog when they worked with him today as his video shows – https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=vlVS3iEwE5c&feature=youtu.be .JUDE deserves a loving home with the training and support all young dogs need but he will not make it without rescue/foster ASAP. If you think you could save this boy’s life by fostering or fostering to adopt him, please contact a local rescue group ASAP or comment here so we can connect you with one. Rescues – JUDE should be eligible for CCAS bridge funds to assist with any extra medical care so please comment here or PM us if you’re considering him in addition to contacting the CCAS rescue coordinator directly at firstname.lastname@example.org – we may be able to help. JUDE is at the Martinez shelter at 4800 Imhoff Place, hoping someone will give him the “helping paw” he has missed out on so far. Further info available at 925-608-8400 or 925-608-8430.

I just found out she isn’t micro chipped please please keep an eye out for her. She’s an indoor only cat and somehow has managed to escape we think.

I’m missing my cat. She’s a small Bengal cat about two years old and responds to the name Bella or Gato. She was wearing a blue collar with roses. If found please message me. She’s dearly missed by me and my family.
One important thing is to stock a pet first aid kit. Which would include: an assortment of bandages, pads and rolls of gauze, tweezers (for removing splinters, debris from eyes, etc.), pet thermometer, bottled water (enough for 5-7 days).

Update (4-28-17): They’ve all been rehomed. Stephanie is involved with bird rescue. If you’re interested in fostering/adopting birds, then, let me know & I can get you in touch with her. This was shared by Stephanie Durham at the Solano and Napa County Animal Rescue Facebook group: Hi, everyone. This campaign has a twofold benefit. Getting us out of this, unpleasant (to put it mildly), studio that we’ve been in for three years (read our most recent post about it) & being able to do more for the animal rescue, etc community. I volunteer with the kitties at the local shelter & we’ve adopted in the past. Your prayers, good thoughts, positive energy & shares are much appreciated. Thanks.
One thing, 80% of orange tabbies are male. I already knew the majority of them are. They’re not sure why, though. I’ve had three orange kitties in my life. The first was when I was eight to 18. It was my & my grandma’s. He had wandered onto our property. We lived in a more rural area just outside of town. We’d often get strays. Though some belonged to somebody & we made sure we got them back to their person. When I was 28 to 30 & living (renting from) with my grandma again, she adopted an orange cat. After I married, I would still see him, when I/we visited my grandma. 2 1/2 years after my husband & I married, we adopted our first kitty together. An orange male who was four. He crossed the Rainbow Bridge a couple of months ago. He was 19 1/2. All three of them were major loves. Several of the kitties, at the shelter where I volunteer, have been orange. Orange ones also tend to be more mellow. Please go to, I Heart Cats, to read the rest of the list.
