AND YESTERDAY, WE WENT BACK TO OUR ROOTS OF RESCUING DOGS FROM THE STREETS AND FOR THE 5TH TIME, IT WAS A MISSION FROM UNDER A CAR.
Jared and I were alerted by fellow street rescuers and a woman who feeds kitties, that there was a dog hiding under a parked car. The kitty woman was trying to keep a large feral from attacking the scared pooch. Jared and I headed to 46th and Cottage Grove. We tried our best efforts to secure the dog. We busted out the cat trap with enticing food. Not gonna work with a pissed off, not hungry dog. A net, a catch pole, and a leash were all too scary too for her.
As life is a literal parking lot, of all the places, these two women were trying to park their car and move another car in the exact place the dog was. The dog eventually was spooked by all the cars that the dog ran from the taller car and completely wedged herself under the very low car the woman was trying to move. We had asked them if they could turn the car off as it was getting hot for the dog. She opened her car door and the dog jumped right in, scaring the woman, the dog ran back under. We then asked if she can leave the car door open again but the woman said no. We also tried to maneuver the dog out slowly by backing up the car. That didn’t work either. After 30 mins, the dog eventually gave up and peered out from the front tire. I placed the leash over her head and she was safe.
Now, named Sprinkles, we brought her to CACC for her 3 day stray hold. Her id is A180113. No chip, no collar. She is a female Pomeranian mix and she was given a haircut by someone, so c’mon let’s find the owners. Sprinkles, if her owners do not show, we will pull her back out and enter our LEAD family. And we will also be looking for a foster home for Sprinkles. From the overnight we had, she warmed up quickly for pets and demanded to sleep on our bed....which we then caved.
