PLEASE HELP US SAVE THESE ANIMALS...

More than 100 dogs and 20 cats are now being rescued

from horrific conditions at a hoarder's house.

A few days ago, veterinarians at one of our clinics alerted us to a potential hoarding case involving a self-proclaimed rescuer.  After negotiating with this individual, we were able to gain access to the property and found animals in appalling conditions.

With no other local animal control agency or shelter in the area able to take on the huge challenge of this rescue, our tireless crew and volunteers worked through the weekend in horrible conditions to remove the animals.  The scent of urine was so pungent it burned the eyes and throats of everyone on site, and many of the animals were thickly matted with their own waste. Others had untreated injuries and illnesses.  With conditions so difficult for our workers, we can only imagine how horrible this situation has been for the animals that have been forced to live in these circumstances for so long.

Hoarder1

After several grueling days, we have removed almost all of the animals and the effort continues.  Our urgent goal is to save and rehome and/or foster every animal - except in cases where euthanasia is deemed to be medically necessary by our vets.  We are enlisting the support of other rescue groups and our adoption partners on the East Coast, to help us save the precious lives of these long-suffering animals.  We also intend to enter into a legally binding contract with the hoarder to allow us future entry on to the property, to ensure that no animals suffer in these conditions in the future.

PLEASE HELP!

DONATE

Monetary donations are needed for veterinary medical supplies and animal

care supplies, gas, animal transport costs and more!

Luckily, the wonderful veterinarians at Southwest Veterinary Hospital who reported this case have volunteered both their professional services and the cost of boarding the animal victims.  Any donation you make will be matched by their contribution of veterinary care and other services.  Our crew has already volunteered hundreds of hours as well in this difficult rescue effort.

THANK YOU FOR CARING AND FOR DOING

WHATEVER YOU CAN TO HELP!

We feel it is in the best interests of the animals at this time not to reveal the location of this hoarding situation. We are in ongoing negotiations with the hoarder and one of her conditions for surrendering the animals to us is anonymity at this time.  The situation, however, is unfolding close to our Enoch J. Donaldson sanctuary in Washington parish and emergency shelter in Tylertown, MS.

Don't forget: we accept used cars and boats as tax-deductible donations.  Contact us at [address removed].
