To assist in getting Fynlee adopted, the nonprofit group and filmmakers have declared her the official Rescue Dogs Salt Lake City mascot. Together, they intend to find Fynlee a family that will fully appreciate her sweet demeanor.
This is part of the film’s latest initiative to bring more awareness around rescue animals and to get homeless pets adopted. Rihanna is available at Second Chance Rescue in New York, Hyde is ready to meet you at AAWL in Arizona, and Jenna is up for adoption at Wags and Walks in Los Angeles. If you live near New Orleans, Kansas City, Chicago or Minneapolis—keep an eye out for more available “mascot” dogs to be announced later this week!
Rescue Rovers has been around since 2012, arranging transportation from high-kill shelters to partnering rescues. They’ve saved over 1,000 lives to date and have been coordinating animal adoptions since 2013. The group is 100 percent donations-based.
“Our mission was to pool resources to maximize the number of dogs saved when a volunteer went to ‘pull’ a dog from the shelter,” the site notes. “We believed if we had an en empty seat in the car, a kennel could go there and we could save more lives.”
Fynlee has been patiently waiting for a forever family to finally whisk her away. The Catahoula or Aussie mix is about two-years-old, loves all people, and is an absolute angel with children.
Dear Fynlee was originally a stray in Vernal, Utah, and was treated for mange at the shelter. A month after Rescue Rovers pulled her from the shelter, they noticed she wasn’t eating and was throwing up often. The vet diagnosed her with Megaesophagus, or ME, which means Fynlee needs to be propped up when she eats so food will properly travel down her esophagus.
The great thing is Fynlee is more than happy to go to her “Bailey Chair” (which looks seriously cute anyway) to eat her meals and to sleep wearing her “hug” pillow.
Despite having a lazy esophagus, Fynlee is an active and playful pup. She enjoys running around and roughhousing with her foster brothers and gets along just fine with cats and dogs.
Rescue Rovers and Rescue Dogs hope their partnership will ensure Fynlee finds her fur-ever home as soon as possible. She’s up to date on vaccinations and is already spayed and housetrained. Filmmakers will cover the young pup’s adoption fee.
To help #RescueFynlee, please share her story. Let’s find this classy lady the family she deserves!
Rescue Dogs the Movie opens in Salt Lake City this Friday, April 1st! Rescue Rovers will host live adoption events on Saturday and Sunday, and a portion of the producers’ box office from the entire week-long movie run will benefit Rescue Rovers.
