CHICAGO, Illinois – The Pet Pardons organization released an urgent dog bulletin Wednesday asking the public for their help in finding a home for a five-year-old male Siberian Husky named Gordon who survived extreme abuse by his previous owner and dies tomorrow unless saved from Chicago Animal Care and Control.
UPDATE: Gordon’s plea was heard and the amazing people at Adopt a Husky stepped up and pulled him from the shelter. A fund raising Chip In has been set up to help the rescue shelter with the extensive medical costs associated with resucing Gordon, and those wishing to help can click HERE to do so.
Gordon is in an absolutely desperate situation that no animal should ever have to face. With only one day left before being euthanized, he sits in a cell with a fractured jaw, a broken canine tooth and a painful inflamtion of the gumline that were parting gifts from the owners that abused him and dumped him in a shelter to die.
Gordon sits quietly in his cell, with depression setting in, full of pain and fright, waiting for someone to help him out of his situation and lift him up into a loving and caring home. He deserves so much better than this.
Members of the Pet Pardons community are given daily Facebook bulletins and updates, allowing them to share the stories of pets in need or even take direct action to adopt or donate money to save the life of the pet. The reasons for how these animals end up in shelters are as numerous as the reasons why there are so many dedicated volunteers working hard every day to save innocent lives.
The Pet Pardons Facebook application has been responsible for the successful adoption of over 9,000 pets since its launch in December of 2010 and has amassed over 340,000 followers on Facebook who are ready to help advocate for an animal in need at a moment’s notice.
Pet Pardons allows its members to help pets by clicking the “Advocate” button on each pet’s profile, which places the pet’s bulletin on the user’s wall, allowing others to see the pet and advocate for it. As the number of shares increases, so do the chances of the pet being viewed by someone who can help or adopt.
Gordon should never have been forced to endure the type of abuse he has lived through, and as a Husky he should be out playing during the day howling and yipping at the moon at night, but unless a caring individual or loving family steps forward to help him, tomorrow will be the day that the world has failed Gordon.
Pet Pardons educates the public about pet overpopulation, focusing on the importance of adoption and spay/neuter. By shining a light on the reality for shelter pets, people are becoming aware of the problem, and therefore, getting involved in the solution. As each amazing pet is featured, users are able to see their faces, connect with their stories, and advocate to save their lives.
Pet and animal advocacy can sometimes be a very emotional process. Volunteers place animals into the Pet Pardons application in hopes that they will be adopted into loving homes, not so that the shelters will be targeted and harassed. Please help the pets by not engaging in this type of behavior, as it hurts them far more than it helps them.
Gordon currently has a few advocates on the Pet Pardons application, and could use a lot more, especially those who would be willing to supply transportation to a new forever home if needed.
