Merry Christmas to Lily! I hope you find someone responsible to give her a home before the holidays!


Ador-a-BULL OF THE WEEK: Meet LILY (ID#A884394)!! LILY’S former daddy fell upon very difficult times and has been living out of his car for the past two weeks along with LILY, who he has managed to keep safe and fed…until now 😦 How unbelievably heartbreaking to envision a man living out of his car in this freezing cold weather, t…rying to do right by his dog but realizing that he could no longer meet her very basic needs. And so he was forced to make the ultimate sacrifice by bringing her to the shelter with the sincere hope that someone out there could give his little girl what he could longer provide: warmth, steady meals, safety, and stability. We MUST get LILY into a loving home – for her sake, and for the sake of this man who gave everything he could to protect her, for as long as he possibly could. Sweet LILY IS SO INCREDIBLY LOVED BY VOLUNTEERS who describe this ittie-bittie-pittie as a “lovable cuddle-bug” – simply darling! LILY scored beautifully on her behavior test (a “mild”) and yearns for the warm, gentle touch of a human being. She is 7 years old, though is said to act much younger, and weighs 41 lbs. LILY DOES NOT DESERVE TO DIE IN THAT SHELTER – especially after all she has been through. SHE NEEDS OUR HELP. Please, if interested in adopting LILY, call or go directly to the MANHATTAN ANIMAL CARE AND CONTROL ASAP – and/or let us know ASAP (Shelter info: 320 110th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenue, phone number 212-722-4939). PLEASE CROSS-POST! THANK YOU! 2 bios below.
(**Please note that shelter volunteers have been trying to find this man so that help could be offered to him…so far, no luck. At this point what we DO have is Lily…and she needs us, too, or she will be put down**)

A volunteer wrote: Lilly is the type of dog to stop while walking up stairs, and turn toward you for hugs before continuing. She also loves to play fetch, but seemingly not as much as she likes to hold a tennis ball in her mouth and hug your sides, gazing up at you with a loving mix of play and affection. I was quite surprised to learn that this wasn’t a 2 year-old dog — that instead, Lilly is actually seven. After seven years, Lilly’s owner has fallen on hard times, and cannot afford to feed this adorable brown mini-pittie anymore, so here she is at our shelter. She only weighs 41lbs, and although she may put on a little extra weight (especially in muscle), this tiny girl is as big as she’ll get. A tiny ball of energy, Lilly galloped back and forth across the backyard after her tennis ball for as long as I’d throw it for her, and when I brought her back to her cage, she hopped up and down from a standstill as soon as I closed her cage door, making me extra sad to leave her there. You can’t ask for more love, affection and energy from a 7 year-old, and clearly Lilly still has a lot of years of playtime left in her. As sad as her owner must have been to relinquish her, Lilly will brighten the lives of any family that gives her a new start. She is truly a brown-eyed, red-nosed little treasure.

ADDITIONAL BIO: I wasn’t going to stop for Lilly, because she had already been out and already had a bio, but then she did the most amazing thing: She pressed her entire neck and chest up against the bars to be scratched. Are you kidding me with that kind of cuteness???? Just extraordinary! I knew Lilly’s story, and it is a heartbreaking one in that she and her owner have had to be parted after their lives together due to the owner falling on hard times. He tried so hard to take care of his dog before he had to give her up, and we have all promised to take the best care of her while she is here that we can, in honor of his efforts. But what we’re really, really, really hoping for is that this puppyish sugar cube of sweetness and delight gets back into another home ASAP, where she can live forever in a lap of love, with plenty of chin scratches!See More

About apitome

I am a mother, a pit bull advocate, but mostly I am just like any of you, I am passionate about politics, the environment and dog advocacy. I want possitive changes within the judicial system as well. I want my children to grow up in a country where we are not told what breed of dog we can own. I want to see BSL put in the trash where it belongs! I want to see the constitution protected but not manipulated *see anything on the mosque near ground zero (USA) or changing Merry Christmas to Happy Holidays (Canada)* I am not racist in any way shape or form against any ethnic group, I do however have prejudices against bad behavior! If you abuse our laws, kids, the elderly, or animals, If you move to a new country and then demand that country to change everything about it's laws & way of life to suit your own agenda, If you blatantly break those laws with no regard and show no repect for them, if you engage in dog fighting or any other forms of animal abuse, torture or neglect, or if you are a pedophile, Than yes! You are on my radar for sure, and I will do EVERYTHING within my power to see you stopped and brought to justice! Furthering that goal, I have no qualms about publishing the names and faces of convicted abusers. I am not trying to change the world, I simply want to see things improve not backslide, Mostly for my children and these wonderful dogs futures! I may say things you agree with, and I may say things that you won't agree with, I may anger you, challenge you, or just plain piss you off, but in my book that's ok as long as long as it inspires some form of action on your part. This is not a popularity contest, If I have said anything about a group or person that you don't agree with please feel free to leave a comment or simply don't come back. If You have been mentioned in my blog it is for one of two reasons, you are either an advocate or you are an abuser loser, if you are the latter I could care less what you think! I value the opinions of trash about as much as I do that of a slug! Everything in print here is a matter of public record, or came from a trusted source, with that said, I am certainly willing to print both sides of any story, in an effort to be fair and always print the truth!
