Woof Wednesday

Welcome to Woof Wednesday.  Today is a special Woof Wednesday as the ASPCA urgently needs the publics help.  Please read their message below....
 
  
ASPCA responders are on the ground in Raeford, North Carolina, assisting authorities in the removal of nearly 700 animals from a sprawling, unlicensed facility known as The Haven. More than 270 dogs, 250 cats, 40 horses and numerous pigs were discovered in filthy kennels, cages, outdoor pens and paddocks on the 122-acre property. Many animals had no protection from the elements and are suffering from serious, untreated medical issues including open wounds, severe upper respiratory disease and emaciation.
 
The ASPCA responded at the request of the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Hoke County Sheriff’s Office, who began investigating The Haven after receiving numerous complaints of sick animals adopted from the facility. It was suppose to be a safe haven for rescued animals unfortunately it was anything but.  The Haven’s owners were arrested on charges of animal cruelty, and the ASPCA is assisting with evidence collection, animal removal, transport, sheltering and medical care.
 
This is one of the largest animal seizures the ASPCA has ever conducted in our 150 years as an organization. We have a team of more than 130 responders on the ground to remove and care for these hundreds of neglected animals who have clearly not been receiving adequate care. Our goal is to help them become healthy and ultimately find them homes.
 
Our responders are on the scene providing much-needed medical attention to animals in critical condition, and will transport the animals to a temporary shelter to continue to care for them until custody is determined by the court. Our Forensic Sciences team is collecting evidence to support the criminal case, and the ASPCA will provide ongoing legal support.
 
The ASPCA is an amazing organization, it helps to protect and save innocent animals. Please help them by donating whatever you can.  Or visit your local ASPCA and adopt a dog who desperately needs a loving home. There are so many great dogs available for adoption at various shelters and rescues around the country. 
 
The ASCPA would be grateful for any donations it receives no matter how big or small, here is their direct link ASPCA Donate.
 
Thank you. 
 
 
No paw left behind our mission!

 {Please keep in mind a dog is lifetime commitment. They need attention, love and time just like we do. In addition, adding a pet to the family does cost money in the way of food, health care, training, etc. So before adopting make sure you are willing to make that kind of commitment and have the resources to do so.}
