I'm desperately seeking help for a dog schedule to be euthanized next week at a animal shelter. This dog was lost by his owners in the Chatsworth Trail Park in Chatsworth. I actually bumped into his owners and they asked if I had seen a red nose pit bull named Rocky that wandered off. I told them I did not and wished them luck.
Over a month later while riding my horse through the trails, I saw Rocky. He was literally skin and bones and very weak. I knew he was dying and I had to do whatever I could to catch him. After I put my horse away at the stables, I rushed back with food and water. I spent a hour looking for him, but didn't see him. I left food and water and planned to come back the next morning. The next day the food and water was gone and as I was leaving more out for him, Rocky emerged out of the bushes. I lassoed him with a piece of string and then carried him back to my vehicle. I took him to the West Valley Animal Care and Service Center where he was nursed back to health and I put up "found dog" flyers in hope that his owners would reclaim him. No luck.
As time went by and Rocky regained his health, put on weight, and the shelter renamed him "Happy" due to his energetic personality and he was put up for adoption. The shelter has made attempts to find a rescue organization to take him, but no luck. The shelter has already kept him longer then most dogs, but unfortunately his time is up. After all he's been through and the odds he overcame, Rocky is going to be put to sleep sometime this week, so in a last ditch effort, I'm trying to find a organization to save him.
The reason I can't adopt him myself is that I have two dogs already and I rent a room at a house and a third dog is absolutely out of the question. I can't even take him in temporarily.
If you could please response and let me know if you can help or not, or if you know of someone who can, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you for your help.
"Happy" is at the West Valley Animal Center in Chatsworth, the phone number is (818) 756-9325 (another number is 888-452-7381 x146) and his ID number is A1054577.
I've including photo attachments with this email of "Happy" when I first found him in August.
