Central Ohio Open Adoption… K9

It says ” the Dogs have a home!”

What do you do if your newborn biological child develops severe allergies to your three and four year olds?   Put them up for adoption, trying  to keep them together of course. 

It would be like giving up a child for many dog lovers of course to have to find a new home for their pets.  

I wondered if there a lab rescue group in Central Ohio or the Dayton area?  I have canine rescue group info on my MaureenMcCabe.com website. There are not Labrador rescue groups on my website but there are on the Columbus Dog Connection website which is on the Columbus k9 page on that site. I will forward those back through the email chain to Harley and Deuce’s parents in case they are not aware of those groups:

Labrador             937-890-0325  
Labrador              513-543-3000   
Labrador             330-725-1393  
Labrador             937-833-LAB5   

None seem to be in the Columbus area!

The email my friend Martha forwared me with pictures of Harley and Deuce says:

“Harley & Deuce are gorgeous, friendly, happy, young (3&4) yellow labs
who need a home together SOON. The owners’ new baby has developed
severe allergies to them and their owners are devastated.

Both are neutered, have their shots, are house trained and get along with kids, cats, and other dogs.

 Harley takes anti-seizure  meds ($10 per month) with no problems.

They are playful and easygoing.

Currently they are being boarded in Montgomery County – but the owners can’t afford that for long. If you know any one who might be interested in these beautiful dogs, please see contact info below. They want them to be adopted together. Even if you aren’t interested in adopting these dogs but know someone who might be, please pass this along.”

I stripped out the contact info (email address)  but would be happy to supply it to anyone who legitimately knows of options for Deuce and Harley.  It looks like two are in the Dayton area (Montgomery County) so they may already know about Deuce and Harley.

Two of my friends in the office were instrumental in finding a new home for a dog via a blog.  “Dog needs a new family to love”   on Elaine Reese’s real estate blog resulted in that canine being adopted.  The owners were moving out of the country and could not take their dog.  That story had a happy ending, the dog found a new family to love.  I’m sure it was a bitter sweet ending for the people who had to give up their beloved dog. 

Post Script: It was one of those emails that tugs at your heart.  In forwarding the Lab Rescue Group contact info to the email address in the email I got this response:

I apologize for this automatic reply to your email.


–But the Dogs have a home!

The information is very old and inaccurate. The dogs were not mine and were adopted over 4 months ago. Unfortunately, the message continues to circulate on the internet. I am receiving over 300 e-mails a day and cannot respond to them all.

Please share this with others that have received this message –Thank you! “

Maybe I’ll set up an email about a house that needs a new family to love it, linking to one of my listings… and see if that helps it get adopted???    

  • It’s got a big lot

  • An invisible fence 

  • A dog run

  • It’s a great place for any canine (s.)

Elaine removed the link… based on the post script, her blog said to me:

“Easy, tiger. This is a 404 page.
You are totally in the wrong place. Do not pass GO; do not collect $200.

Instead, try one of the following”

I love how WordPress talks… “Easy Tiger”

It’s been a rough day in the blogiverse. Luckily the labs found a home.
