This little girl was picked up Friday and the owners told AC that they do not want her back. The pound does not have to hold dogs that are owner give ups but they have agreed to keep her at least until Friday.
She is very friendly and doesn’t understand why she has been left there.
Medium sized dog, perhaps 40 pounds maximum.
Ginger made it safely to Denver last night and is on her way to Carbondale to find her forever home. She is a sweetheart! Thanks for stepping up and offering your help!
This is Ginger. She is about 2-3 years old. I am trying to help her get into a rescue before she is euthanized.
Ginger has been fostered by a wonderful woman but she will still need a home so if you are her miracle or if you come across anyone who may be interested in adopting her. She will in Carbondale.

She was brought to the Joplin, MO Humane Society a couple months ago. For anyone familiar with this humane society there are some great ladies who run Golden paw pet resort near the shelter. They let the shelter bring over any dogs to hold when they have possible rescue commitments or are pregnant and in danger of being euthanized because of space – no charge.
She was brought to Golden paw because she was about to have her babies. All her babies died. In the next month after that, 2 other mammas had litters and each had such large litters that Ginger helped nurse and take care of the babies from both litters. The girls at golden paw have been hiding Ginger by marking her kennal card “adopted, will be picked up next week” so that when the shelter comes to pick up dogs and move them back to the shelter she doesn’t get taken.
Today the shelter manager was let go and instructions were given at the shelter for the shelter to be cleared out,
dogs are to be gassed.
Victoria who works at Golden paws has been so good at helping me get dogs out, driving them to KC for rescue and holding them for me that she is just sick that Ginger is going to be taken back to the shelter and put down. She is such a sweet, happy girl. Can you send this out to any of your groups that would help with her?
I doubt she is spayed yet but I will get that done if she gets a good home or rescue. She is up to date on her vaccs and bordatella. There are both men and women working at golden paws and she just wants everyone to pet her. She is not particular about who. A lot of the babies born at this shelter dont make it. They are exposed to so many things and just are to little to survive. That would be great if someone would post her at Camp Bow Wow or even on petfinder. Myself and/or Victoria at golden paws would be contact for her. I would rather not post her on craigslist as that scares me. Thanks for any help with her. She really is a very sweet girl. Her problem at the shelter is that she is “just a brown mix dog”. Usually one of the first to be put down as this shelter gets a lot of purebreds.
