This is Shion, my 11 month old puppy. He is a rescue and has behavioral issues.
It’s currently September 16th and I need to find someone who can board him TODAY or I will not be able to keep him.
I have an internship until November 10th and I am unable to house him myself until then. A friend promised to board him for me but backed out a week after my move 200 miles away, and was going to surrender him to a kill shelter today, September 16th, if I didn’t drive down to pick him up.
I have been looking for boarders for over a week and have not been able to find anyone. I drove down anyway and now I have nowhere to go.
It’s the middle of my work week and this week is about all I can miss. I have limited time and limited money (roughly $750 for puppy costs including boarding, food, gas money, motel rooms, etc.)
I am a disabled low-income student entirely dependent on financial aid. My internship covers room and board I otherwise would not be able to afford, but the housing is dog-free. I have no family within 1000 miles and no friends in state who can take him.
I will have more money in January when my winter financial aid kicks in, so I can pay much more if someone is willing to work with me on deferred payments. About the best I can do long-term right now is $10 or $15 a day, with all expenses like food paid for.
I need to find someone who knows how to handle fear-aggressive dogs, is located in Washington, Oregon, or Idaho, and will NOT use unnecessary force like shock collars, alpha-rolling, prong collars, or yelling.
Please, please, please help me and my baby. If you know anyone or anything at all that could help me out, please send me an ask to let me know. Monetary donations to help pay for boarding are appreciated more than I can put into words - my paypal is here and there’s also a donations button on my sidebar if this link doesn’t work.
This is URGENT, I need to find a boarder IMMEDIATELY, that is a more pressing issue than money right now. Even someone who can take him for an extra day or two until I can find a more long term solution, anyone. PLEASE HELP US FIND SOMEONE! PLEASE!!!
