Carol Crocker lives in rural Alabama with 101 dogs that she rescued from certain death. Where she lives there is no animal control or any shelters.

If it wasn’t for her these dogs would be destroyed. Although the mayor knew what was going on it was ignored until recently.

The mayor has been recorded in court papers saying, “We knew what was going on but we had no where else to take the animals.” Now, he wants her shelter abolished. There is no animals control. So now Carol Crocker has 101 dogs.

Carol isn’t a young woman, in fact she’s retired and lives on a meager pension from the airlines and social security.

Last year her house was burned to the ground and now she lives in the garage, she had no homeowners insurance and can’t afford to rebuild.

Carol has loved and cared for each one of these dogs. She is not looking for money or donations. All she wants is to find homes for her beloved dogs before the county steps in.

This is NOT a hoarder situation. It is an older woman who kept having county dogs dropped off and now, on top of losing pretty much everything she had, the county wants to make her life more difficult.

She is devastated at what has happened and is terrified of the county taking them and putting them down. All she wants is for good rescues to help her out.

If you can help, or know anyone that can help, please contact Carrol Crocker directly or Shari dogpackrescue@hughes.net.

Wow, what an amazing woman. She has lost everything but her primary concern is still for her dogs. Our best wishes go out to Carol, we’re rooting for you.
