|What's in here?|
|Oh dear, it's another rescue mission.|
Nine lab mixes were brought to our shelter after a hoarding situation was discovered. More than 100 dogs were found in various states of illness and neglect. Shelters in a 4 county area stepped up and took in as many of the dogs as they could. Our awesome employees took in nine dogs, gave then a medical exam, vaccinations and tests for heartworms. They were scared and many of them had never known the loving touch of a human. They were given their own kennel, warm and soft blankies and toys. Oh, and food, lots of good food.
Many of the dogs suffered from sores from laying on hard surfaces. All were covered in fleas.
Some had bitten ears from fighting for the food that was tossed into their outdoor kennels.
This scared boy will soon know what love and good care is all about.
It's no secret that many shelters are low on funds. Very low. We are no exception.
You see those injections and the white package? That's the minimum testing and medicine needed for each dog. Each medicine and heartworm test costs us $100. So, 9 rescue dogs x's $100 = $900. We want to keep on helping the abused, neglected and abandoned animals in our county. We really need help. So if you have any spare change, a rich uncle, just hit the lottery, or know of a way that we can raise funds, please let Mommy know, or go to www.hsoac.org and make a donation. We have over 300 little lives depending on us.
