We Need Your Help to Save the Lives of Trenton Dogs!

INTRODUCING OUR “JUST ONE DOG” CAMPAIGN

The Race is On to Save Trenton Animal Shelter Dogs

We need your help to save the lives of healthy, adoptable dogs at Trenton Animal Shelter. 

 

Our campaign is called “Just One Dog”.  As an animal welfare organization with a very limited number of foster homes, we still could not stand by without doing our part to help.  So we are focusing on working with other rescue organizations and with local boarding facilities.

 

HERE’S THE STORY

Trenton Animal Shelter has been reorganized and new management installed.  Although the population has remained constant for at least 1-1/2 years, with 100-110 dogs at Trenton Animal Shelter and Yardley Animal Kennels, for some reason the mayor decided to begin killing the dogs as a first priority

 

The vast majority of Trenton Dogs do not have serious behavior problems and are not dangerous.  The few dogs assessed by TAS’ trainer and found to be dangerous, are put down.  Many of the remaining dogs have few, if any, minor problems, and are dog-friendly and children- friendly.

One of those dogs is Munah, pictured here, who is up for adoption.  Unfortunately, Munah is also on the second list of “time-stamped” dogs, scheduled to be put down as early as tomorrow, May.13, 2024.  Munah was given the highest, “white dog” rating by TAS’ trainer.  She is sweet, social, and polite, and is good with people of all ages, including young children.  Although she is not a particularly playful dog, Munah is a really good dog.  She may even be great as a therapy dog!

 

It makes no sense that Munah may lose her life.

 

HERE’S WHAT WE’RE DOING:

 

(1) We’re reaching out to as many rescue organizations as possible.  Because most rescues already have their hands full and are at capacity, we are asking them to “pull” just one dog from Trenton Animal Shelter.  We’ll be available to give them assessment information on the dogs, so they can make the choice that’s right for them.  In return for pulling a Trenton Shelter dog, we will make a $200-$250 donation to their rescue.  For rescues a distance away, we will also offer to pay their transport fees.

 

We know from past initiatives that offering incentives like these makes their participation much more likely. While the responsibility of taking one dog should be relatively small for each rescue, the collective impact could be tremendous. 

 

(2) There are Pennsylvania rescues willing to pull dogs from Trenton Animal Shelter.  However, because of the new PA dog law revision, any dog taken from the Trenton facility must be quarantined for 14 days.  We are establishing relationships with veterinary and boarding facilities willing to participate for a reduced fee, and we will pay for the boarding costs.

 

Of course, the Just One Dog campaign also extends to any of you who are considering dog adoption.  Now is the time to adopt a dog from Trenton Animal Shelter!

Introducing "Fur-ever Match",
our new adoption program

We know how challenging it can sometimes be to search for a rescue dog or cat.  In our new program, we do the searching for you! All you have to do is complete an adoption application.  Once your adoption is reviewed and approved, we'll search for just the right dog or cat for your family. We take into account the size, age range, temperament, gender, activity level, and other-pet friendliness of the rescue you want to add to your family forever.  

All the pets we adopt are spayed and neutered, as well as up-to-date on all vaccinations. All are healthy; in cases for which there are health concerns, they are fully disclosed.

For more information and/or an adoption application, email us at info@CrossingsAnimalSociety.org.
