Abandoned Foreclosure Pets: The Unsuspecting Victims

The surge of housing foreclosures is taking a heavy toll on families across the country, and our pets are paying the biggest price of all.

Last summer one family in northern California lost their home. They hurriedly packed what they'd decided to take with them, and drove to the dump with the rest. There they dropped off an old tired couch, and a brown pit bull mix. For several days the dog waited for her family to return. Tied to the couch she had no choice.When she was finally discovered, she was dehydrated and very tired.

Debbie Eaglebarger, caretaker of the local Corning, California shelter and the one who untied her, gave her something to eat and drink, and named her Summer.

There will always be people like Summer's former owners, who get rid of their dogs thoughtlessly. But Eaglebarger says the number of dogs who've been hastily abandoned due to an eviction or loss of a home is on the rise. "The foreclosure crisis is hitting very hard here," she says.

Summer arrives, Summer turned out to be among the lucky ones. Eaglebarger was able to find the once fearful dog a new home. The pit mix, who has blossomed into a wag-friendly dog, now lives permanently with her new family, a couple, in San Francisco.

Eaglebarger tries to help people on the verge of losing their homes find new ones, and there are options. But she also recommends bring your dog to a shelter if all else fails. "It's much better than leaving your dog on the side of the road to starve, get into a fight, or be hit by a car," she says, "or be thrown in a dump."

Footloose Montana

After hearing too many stories about dogs being horribly injured or killed by legal traps on public lands, in the winter of 2007 a group of Montanans who enjoy hiking, fishing, hunting, skiing, boating and recreating on Montana’s public lands and waterways gathered to discuss how we could help keep those lands safe for people and their pets. Contact Us >>



Every year, thousands of steel-jawed leghold traps, body-crushing Conibear traps and throat-choking snares are legally set on Montana’s public lands—all year long. Hundreds of pets, endangered species and other non-target animals are injured or killed in traps.


Footloose Montana provides information about the threat of trapping to public safety on public lands, and its impact on our natural resources.

Villalobos Rescue Center for Pit Bulls

.
.
A rescue, rehabilitation and placement facility
for abused and abandoned Pit Bulls.
.

.
.
On any given day, VRC has between 150-200 Pit Bulls here at our 10 acre facility. As you can imagine, the costs for running an operation of this magnitude are overwhelming. Our monthly operating expenses have now increased to $15,000.00 and our vet bills stay at an average of $5,000.00.
.
.
Here nestled in the hills of the high desert, those who have suffered in silence will never hear another gun shot or the siren of a pursuing police car. Every night they will fall asleep to the yipping of coyotes and the soothing hoot of the owl. They are safe and content. The only thing missing is a home of their own. Please help us to help them.
