Imagine getting your dog a passport and traveling from another country, only to find that the apartment you rented will not allow her to live with you.
Now try to imagine the effect this would have on your dog.
Paris, a beautiful 5-year-old boxer mix, traveled from Poland with her family and was then left outside Yonkers Animal Shelter in Yonkers, NY. Her family returned the next morning to explain why they were forced to leave her there - the living arrangements they made would not allow Paris to stay with them.
Instead of enjoying her new surroundings with the family she loves, Paris now finds herself in a strange shelter, away from everything familiar.
This brokenhearted girl can be heard whimpering in her pen, not knowing why she ended up there, and feeling abandoned. Unfortunately, her family was unaware when they paid for her to come all this way that they would encounter housing restrictions for Paris.
A volunteer writes: I hear her crying in her cage, in a strange land, a strange place, no family. This girl is so lost and confused. Please help her find her happily ever after.
Paris deserves a loving home, not to be living in a shelter. She is safe at Yonkers and not in danger of euthanasia, but because of that, her stay can be prolonged indefinitely unless someone steps up. It certainly isn't the life of freedom and happiness that she and all animals deserve.
This sweet girl weighs about 55 pounds, is house-trained, and is described as having an easy-going personality. She lived with kids, enjoys humans, and did well with the two male dogs she met. She has also attended some obedience classes.
If you or someone you know can provide a safe haven for Paris, please contact Lesliem147@gmail.com or text (201) 981-3215. Out of state adoptions are possible.
