Hello there...I'm a handsome boy, about 3 years old. I got pretty sick and my owners got me all fixed up but then I lost my vision and suddenly I find myself here at the shelter. This place is full of sounds and smells. You think I would be afraid but I just seem curious. As you can imagine, most people probably don't want to adopt a blind dog, so I don't know what my chances are here...but they are giving me a chance! I just know there is someone out there that is perfect for me. I need a home where I could never be outside unsupervised as that would be way too dangerous for me. Please come visit me! UPDATE: I have found out that I have heartworms so now my status is pretty urgent!The control # for this dog is 1218. Please write it down before calling the shelter. Note: The shelter phone will not dial long distance numbers so we can't return any long distance calls. Also, we only have 2 employees so we are often out of the office caring for the animals or showing adopters around. If you get our answering machine, please give us a call back.
- Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter
- West Monroe, LA
This is a town of 16,000 people -- and they get 700-1000 animals dropped off every MONTH. And they only have 65 pens. Heartbreaking. Please cross-post for Cody. Cody is a sweet, sweet dog, and they are going to keep him for as long as they can... but no guarantees, since they're so busy. There's pretty much zero chance that a blind dog, like Cody, will be adopted at the shelter. It also sounds as though Cody has primarily been an outdoor dog. :-( Sad, sad, sad.
