Havanese Rescue's Latest Six

These are six havanese recently accepted into rescue. Havanese Rescue in one day found six foster homes for them so they can be rehabilitated and accepted into adoption. The photos come after the words as this is the only way I could get it to post properly. I have permission by author to cross post. Actually there are only five photos is that is all I can post at one time.

If you want to help, please purchase tickets to win the havanese rescue quilts (one from the Forum members). www.havaneserescue.com

WHAT IF . . .
you had no name


WHAT IF . . .
you got to the shelter in the back of a pick up with 5 of your "brothers" in a single cat carrier?


WHAT IF . . .
you had no one waiting for you?


WHAT IF . . .
your future depended on the people reading this list?


Meet the Wisconsin Six. They are nameless, scared, and very dirty. They've never worn a leash before Saturday night. They were pulled, one by one, out of the cat carrier into a room in the shelter.

Can you help? Can you foster one of these boys?
They're nameless, but they're waiting.
They're scared, but they'll give you a chance. Can you give one to them?


Lu and Erica,

More Foster Homes needed...

We have an unusual number of foster homes needed recently. The number of dogs needing to be rehomed has increased exponentially in the last few months. If you have home in your heart as well as your home, please contact www.havaneserescue.com.

We match fosters to the right family, and if you cannot foster there are so many other things you can do!

Fostering

This aspect of volunteering always seems to be a bit intimidating to people, though it’s not nearly as hard as you might think. First, you need to evaluate your family situation to determine if you can foster. If you have very young children, a demanding job, other pets with medical or behavioral issues, older parents in the home who require a lot of care, or if everyone in the family is not “on board” with being a foster family, fostering may not be right for you. Maybe you can’t foster, but we’d love it if you’d consider sharing some of your other talents. If your family situation seems right, please keep on reading about being a foster family!

Every foster dog is at a disadvantage initially because they have either been turned in for some medical or behavioral issue, or they have just plain “lost” their family due to some unforeseen circumstance. In all of these cases, the dog may be scared or anxious because of the change in family. Whether the dog is an Owner Turn In (OTI), or comes from a shelter, you should be able to have some space you can block off just for the foster dog until you see how they interact with your other dogs/pets. If they come from a shelter you may also need to quarantine the dog. Our policy and procedure manual provides more information about what is entailed in quarantining a dog and how to protect your family and pets.

Your job as a foster parent is to work with the dog to accomplish several things. First, correct any behavioral issues (i.e., housebreak the dog, work on them being grabby with food, or help socialize them). Some dogs also need you to support them through medical issues which could include surgical care for an injury, neutering/spaying, and would require post-operative care and follow-up. All dogs need their foster parent to observe them to help determine what their ideal family would be. Working on basic manners/training helps the foster dog feel as confident and secure as it can. Many of these dogs just need a consistent home with consistent rules, and they become very good dogs very quickly. There is always someone to talk with you about questions or concerns or to brainstorm if you’ve run into a stumbling block somewhere along the way.

HRI is quite careful about the foster home placements it makes. That means that we will not knowingly place a foster dog with you that would not be appropriate for your family.
We want both you and the dog to succeed at the fostering relationship. HRI respects each family’s need for discretion. Even if you have committed to being a foster parent for a dog in need, if the time or situation is not right when you’re called, you can say “No.”

While it is sad to see your foster dog go to its “forever family,” it is incredibly rewarding when you know your foster dog found the right family because of your time and effort. There is little that is more rewarding than hearing from a family about how much they cherish their newest family member.

Give fostering a try! It is incredibly rewarding and changes lives, one Havanese at a time!

Feeling blessed

Each day my havanese are blessed, as am I. We have a loving home, enough food to eat, warm shelter, and lots of love. I have friends who care about me and a nice family.

All of these things could happen for these little puppy mill dogs, could you be the right home?

Linda

A havanese video you have to see

Lu Wyland, one of the majors of Havanese Rescue made a darling video that will inspire you...the song What Kind of World Do You Want really makes you feel for these dogs. It is one of the main reasons I work to assist in rescue. These dogs have homes now!


If the link doesn't work, go to www.youtube.com and put in havanese rescue in search section. The next video after it is of Desi, one of the rescues with a short leg...see how well he does with love.

Linda--

I just logged on before heading up to sleep. Watching the video, I could feel my heart beating so hard...there will be lots of extra hugs for my Molly tonight, and prayers of thanks for people like you.

Your dog is so cute

You will sleep well, with that darling havanese of yours. I saw the photo of her shorter haircut. One has to laugh at groomers. I think they haven't a clue how to do a havanese well. Think of the poor little guys in rescue. Many have to be shaved waaaaaaaay down. But it grows back fast, and clean!

Thank you for watching. I hope more people see it!
Tell your friends!

My Rommy man is in the Video Lu made. Yes he is a rescue dog who came to me as my very first Foster and never left. I THANK HRI every day for both the change to open my heart & home to a dog in need but also for helping me get my Roman-aka Romeo-

Thank You so much for posting this Thread.

From the heart of a child for rescue

My daughter's class made some posters for Havanese Rescue. May their thoughts go straight to the Wisconsin Six.
