Thanks so much Molly for confirming. So glad he is safe ... although I was kind of hoping I might have him as an overnight guest on his way down to Starfish. See how things have a way of working out? Temptation removed. Lol
Okay, confirmed he is in rescue (little sluggish communication going on). Also found out a few pertinent things that I would like to add to "the record" should others want to rescue from here:
Apparently, the current receptionist is not an animal lover. So, certain things have happened, not just with this guy but in the past:
(a) Misinformation about PTS date. The Petfinder person is the honest one. THURS AM *is* the PTS day.
(b) Destruction of paperwork submitted to hold a dog for rescue or adoption.
(c) Erasure of phone messages committing to a dog.
So, in other words, pull the dog, then work out the details, because all your pre-emptive work to commit to a dog here may "disappear." Sadly, the ACO, who is very dedicated to getting animals out alive and stayed after hours on Wednesday to get it done, has said many have shown up on Thurs p.m. or Fri to get a dog they held, but it had been PTS because of the above problems. Also sadly, he apparently has no control over hiring and firing.
I want to point out that this has nothing to do with Gail Posey or Posey Shelter Pet Promoters. But I think her influence here has been curbed, as she must refer all calls to commit to an animal to...the shelter.
