I've fostered 136 dogs now and still the conditions in our rural shelters shocked me. We need to do better, but first people need to know.

Beautiful Willa has been in her new home, in the US, for a few months now and has become the Queen of the household! Her new family adores her and could not imagine life without her. Willa was loved by everyone who met her at Soi Dog. She had a way about her that could melt almost anyone’s heart and brighten anyone’s mood.

It is apparent that nothing has changed! We are beyond happy to hear she has settled in well and has ultimately found the #furrytailending she dreamed of. From being found on the streets of Thailand to finding the perfect family, Willa is one lucky lady!

We hope that each dog and cat at Soi Dog finds their #furrytailending! To help them, visit our website: https://www.soidog.org/adopt-a-dog or https://www.soidog.org/adopt-a-cat

663 DAYS THIS HAS BEEN MY HOME 💔

This gorgeous brindle girl, Paisley, has been a resident at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter for almost 2 years now. No one notices her, no one asks to meet her. Alone and unwanted this beautiful girl waits for someone to come to her rescue.

Are you aware that studies suggest brindle dogs are more likely to experience longer delays before adoption? Dogs with brindle coats, especially Pitbulls, are the least likely dogs to be adopted and the most likely to be euthanized. This kind of bias should really get us thinking and people need to see animals for who they truly are without regard to color.

Paisley is just about 4 1/2 years old and came in to the shelter as an owner surrender. It’s so hard for me to believe that there is not one single person out there that can open their heart and home to a beautiful girl like her. I am heartbroken just thinking about it.

Sadly, in addition to the stigma associated with her coat color, Paisley is yet another dog who has been affected by Kennel Stress. I have mentioned before there are many different symptoms dogs can exhibit living in shelters too long, Paisley’s issue is that she does not “show well” in her kennel. When potential adopters walk by she will leap and bark, giving a completely different impression from the dog she really is. She is extremely misunderstood by people who see her behave this way, she really just wants to be noticed, to get out of the kennel, she is begging for attention and affection.

Once Paisley is out of her kennel, she is a completely different dog! Her personality comes to life and she truly shines showing that she is sweet, loving, and affectionate. She gives tons of kisses, takes treats gently and is eager to please. She enjoys time with other medium to large dogs -- as always a meet and greet is required by the shelter for your entire family including your other dog if you have one.

Paisley is looking for a home with an experienced owner, kids 17 and up. She is house trained, sweet, wiggly, and lots of fun! According to one of Paisley’s shelter buddies she loves walks, playing ball, and jogging, so an active family with a fenced in yard would be terrific for her. In addition to loving an active lifestyle, Paisley also knows how to chill and just be by your side. She is a huge people lover and very very sweet.

If you are interested in adopting Paisley or know someone that else that be interested, the best thing to do is to go down to the shelter and ask to meet her! Have them bring Paisley out to the meet and greet room, or to the outdoor yard. That’s where her true personality shines through.

Give Paisley the chance she deserves! Trust me, you won’t be sorry, I guarantee you’ll fall in love when you meet her! Just looking into her eyes you can see the sadness and emotional pain she has faced and sitting alone behind the cold steel bars of her kennel, just like jail, for most of the day waiting for her shelter buddy to take her out for a little while adds to her despair—all she wants is to be loved.
