Default Dec 8th will be PTS

Can anyone foster this beautiful border collie? I was browsing petfinder and it breaks my heart to think she might not make it out of there.

Here is her link

YES!!! I'm in Illinois.

I contacted the email address listed, but I'm not sure if they are going to get the message in time. They require that I complete their adoption application, as well, so this seems unlikely.

I've been approved by a regional Border Collie rescue as an adoption home, but I don't know if they will accept that approval for their purposes.

Herschel you may just be her lifesaver! I think that they would definitely approve you especially since you have so many other approvals. I also think it's a very high kill shelter and they'd rather see her out of there than PTS.

She just is such a beautiful girl! I wish that I could have a border collie but w/the asthma it just wouldn't work for me.

Good luck with getting her! Keep us posted and let me know if there is absolutely anything I can do to help!!

Help me help her, people!

Their number is disconnected and I know I'm not going to get an email reply this late, but I still keep checking.

Herschel, it seems that ALL this groups dogs are classified as URGENT. What the heck? I bet that fella won't be PTS today. I'm banking on them contacting you.

Here's their link. Their "contact" link is dead too.

ALL dogs at my local shelter are also considered urgent which means any could be put to sleep at any time. We dont get a "list" of animals who are going to be put to sleep, the manager decides when he gets there.

Of course any dogs who have somewhere to go are not PTS but any other animal can be.

ToscasMom, thank you for finding that out!

The dog will NOT be put to sleep. There is a potential adoption--if it falls through, I will foster until a "forever home" can be found.

It seems that all of the dogs are classified as urgent, but many of them are in foster homes. Fancy is the only one that I have seen that isn't being fostered yet and has a date scheduled for execution.
