Shih-Tzu Puppies Available for Adoption

Three Shih-Tzu puppies plus 8 year old female available for adoption thru All Dogs' Heaven

All Dogs' Heaven has three Shih-Tzu puppies and one female adult ready to be placed in permanent homes. The mother, an 8 year old Shih-Tzu was rescued while pregnant from a puppy mill where she spent her entire life in a cage birthing countless litters for profit. Three months ago was the first time her paws touched grass. Mother dog is crate trained and is about 90% potty trained, she just needs a little more practice. Her adoption fee is $175.

The Shih-Tzu puppies are 9 weeks old and there are two males and one female. They were born while in foster care where their foster mom is working on crate training and on potty training. They will be fully vetted, including spay/neuter before going to their new homes. Their adoption fee is $200.

We charge a modest adoption fee to defray the cost of vetting and care for our rescue dogs. All of our animals for adoption are located in foster homes. No appointments will be made to meet any of the animals until and application has been submitted and approved. To fill out an application for this pet, please go to www.alldogsheaven.org

All Dogs' Heaven (ADH) is an all volunteer rescue group dedicated to rescuing homeless, abandoned, neglected, abused and puppy mill dogs. Our mission is to rescue, medically treat, provide housing and place dogs in loving, permanent homes. ADH is a non-profit 501c3 organization. We have no paid staff and operate  through the volunteers that donate time and talent to save the lives of the many wonderful dogs that we have in our care. Dontations are always needed and welcome and may be made through the website at www.alldogsheaven.org.

Sam, I commented and meant to leave it go at that but wound up having to defend myself against the usual sanctimonious browbeating that typically surfaces by way of people who find courage in anonymity. Now you're piling on. Using my words against me or expecting me to stand down in the face of a personal attack isn't realistic. This is a public forum for me as much as it is for everyone else. ADH stepped into it with a hand out and a sense of entitlement, same as everyone does these days. There's always a risk that someone is going to not entirely agree with that method. No person or organization has enough money these days, yet everyone is always trying to conjure their own charity. It's a self-perpetuating mess. It never hurts to pin down other revenue sources because, sometimes, when people say "No" they make a referral. That's how one thing leads to another. Some locals make homemade dog treats that are purportedly not unhealthy. Would it kill someone to ask for a modest donation of goods to be sold at ADH to cover expenses? Frankly, I have to question the common sense of someone who would max out a credit card, then start panhandling. It's common knowledge that trying to survive off of credit cards is bad business. How is it here's not one vet anywhere that will donate time and services? I never heard of ADH until I saw this article. I'm sure, ultimately, it's a fine organization. Do they charge a drop-off fee? The one on Brookpark Road charges $25, last I heard.

Steve, I'm duly compassionate. I just don't hold my self out as an earthbound saint or broadcast my deeds publicly. People will think what they will. I couldn't care less.

I was just at ADH's site to send a lovely e'mail that might actually prove resourceful. Had to do a sidebar because it was too good for the likes of you. If I had someone like you on my side, I'd burn my organization to cinders. How about you stop spending your day obsessing on me, and carry on getting back on your meds and otherwise treating your distressed mental health? 'k, Bobbi? How about a detailed accounting of what you've done to help ADH or any of the souls affiliated with it, since you're so self-righteous? Be sure to include how much you took in self-serving tax write-offs.
