Portrait of a retired racer. So many of these dogs will be looking for homes now that greyhound racing has been outlawed in Florida. If you’ve ever thought about adopting one of these lovely, gentle giants, now’s the time. Most people are surprised to learn that greyhounds actually don’t require a ton of exercise, and are often happy with couch potato life, as long as they get a good run now and then.
This extremely happy boy is Bruno. He was rescued by the Humane Officers and now waiting and waiting for a home. Bruno is a very smart boy. He has been working on commands and picks them up fast. He is dog-friendly and cat-friendly. This big love would be best in an adult-only home. He has been homeless for a long time now and we are really trying to find him a family soon. Bruno is FREE to a good home thanks to a generous donor. To meet this handsome man, email [email protected]! We are rooting for him! #bruno#brindle#bigboy#homeless#thanksgiving#rescuedogsofinstagram#dogsofinstagram

This is Flo the flamingo (she’s my second favourite toy 🤫) - this is when she was in slightly better condition before I ripped her tail off (which I regret and feel bad for doing as mum has to keep sewing her up) 😔😭❤️ my sister did this to me and she thinks Flo makes a great head accessory! 🎩👑
Her squeaker still works though 🤩🎉 she has a silent squeaker which means only I can hear it so I don’t disturb my family. Although I do like to run around with her and give her a good shake from time to time - she loves it I promise! My dad and sister like to play with me and Flo too. Fun for all the family! 🐶🎉😍💖 Why is there no flamingo emoji?!
A local shelter coordinator called SNARR with a cry for help. There had been reports of a dog dumped in the woods. An animal control officer ventured out to look for the pup; it took awhile, but he eventually found her when he heard the faint thump of her tail wagging. The condition they found her in was horrible. She was emaciated, dehydrated, riddled with infections, and her breathing was compromised from a terribly imbedded collar; she had found some bushes and crawled up to die. When she heard the voice of the AC officer, she mustered up the strength to wag her tail to be rescued.
. . .
Some days we want to give up... the bills pile up, the donations are down; we feel like we don't make a dent. And then, a dog like Bethany comes along” says a member of SNARR. They rushed Bethany to the vet where she is receiving emergency care. Not only is she suffering from a terrible imbedded collar, Bethany is starved, weak, and has a bad infection in her body. Her neck is the size of a puppy's, so we can only imagine that someone put a collar on her when she was a baby, and never bothered to change it. Their vet said it's the worst embedded collar case he has ever seen.
. . .
Bethany is on medication to reduce the swelling and fluid in her head. She also had an emergency procedure to make cuts into her neck to relieve some of the pressure. It sounds terrible, but without this surgery, vets were worried she wouldn't make it. Despite her condition, Bethany is sweet and grateful -- and still wagging her tail. Please help us save Bethany. You can be a part of her story by donating to her care or purchasing items she needs from her wishlist. Every little bit helps. (Link in bio to donate) 💔🐾
Hi I’m Acer!👋🏼
I’m about 1 year old and I still have lots of puppy energy in me! I love to play and run around, and I do AWESOME with other dogs. I’m such a softie that even my foster mom’s grumpy dog has welcomed me as his playmate. But just as much as I love to play, I also love to lay around and know how to be a very chill dog. I won’t get on any furniture if you don’t want me to either. I love to be pet, hugged, and just loved on any time! I’m really just a big ol’ teddy bear. We can cuddle as much as you want! I am such a happy dog in general, but I can be a little timid at first. I just need some happy, positive energy and a little patience and I quickly open up. I never make a mess in my foster’s house and am great in a kennel. I don’t particularly love the kennel because I would much rather be with people and other dogs (and I’m so well-behaved I don’t see why I can’t all the time!) but I do settle down quickly and am as quiet as a mouse. My foster mom hasn’t seen me around any kiddos but I think I’d be fine with a proper introduction. I haven’t ever shown any aggression, unless you count me playing with my foster brother! But even then I don’t play too hard and I stop whenever she tells me to. I really love to listen and be obedient, and I already know some tricks. I’d love to show you when we meet!
