Wiggles is safe– he was adopted. Someone will get to enjoy his rabbit ears every day.
Look at these ears! Look at these eyes! It’s as if he’s saying, “Hey, out there. I’m a really cute puppy!” And he is. Wiggles is under ten pounds and around eight months old. He’s just a young dog looking for some love.
He actually looks like he might have some Pharaoh hound in him, although he is listed as a Miniature Pinscher mix. The volunteers wrote about him:
This guy is super adorable and very friendly, and he loves to give kisses and as his namesake, he can be wiggly. He is a super love-bug and would make a great addition to your home. The Photo Shoot Team really did fall in love with Wiggles personality, we are sure you would too!”

While Madera County shelter workers and volunteers work hard to get every dog out of the shelter safely, they are an open access shelter. That means that they must take all strays and owner surrenders. When the cages are filled, dogs are killed to make room for the new dogs. That’s the harsh reality at many city and county shelters. Their Adopt-a-pet information states:
Madera County Animal Control is the only shelter in the county. We take in all types of animals and try very hard to place as many as possible.We still have a very high euthanasia rate and hope this information will help.”
To change that reality, if you live in Madera County, write your the Madera County Board Chairman, David Rogers at 200 W. 4th St., Madera, CA 93637 or email him at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Instead of criticizing, offer suggestions on how to make Madera County a no-kill county. Without lots of foster homes and rescues to pull the dogs, it won’t work. And no public shelter can take in all the dogs without a way to find them rescue or adoption.
