We all know that animal shelters need assistance but sometimes the need becomes so great due to a flood of need. That seems to be what’s happening in Maryland right now. Thanks to Sabrina (in photo) for bringing this to my attention.
ANIMALS IN MARYLAND NEED OUR HELP!
The Humane Society of Harford County update: 69 Dogs in Whiteford Animal Cruelty Case
Fallston, Maryland May 14, 2006 The Humane Society of Harford County is caring for the 69 dogs and 4 cats seized by the Harford County Sheriff’s Department and Harford County Animal Control as the result of the execution of a search warrant on two properties in Whiteford, Maryland. In response to the overwhelming support and interest from the public we are providing this update.
Some of the dogs have massive medical needs due to their previous lack of care. But the Humane Society is striving to care for all the furry ones.
At the Humane Society of Harford County, we’ve seen it before, and we treat and care for pets just like these. We’re prepared, just not for such a volume!! The animals have our help. And they need yours too! The outpouring of volunteers and monetary donations are gratefully appreciated now and in the future as we struggle to get these dogs healthy.
Even while we care for these 69 little ones, there are dozens of others at the shelter every day, waiting for their new families. Our commitment to the homeless animals of Harford County is unwavering, and our primary goal is not to take the lives of any dogs because we run out of space.
Together, as a caring community, we can do it! Our secondary goal is to find them all the loving forever homes they so deserve and to see them happy at last. And still another goal is to prepare as many as possible to take part in HSHC’s June 25, 2006 Bark in the Park walkathon in Rockfield Park as adopted, healthy and loved alumni of the Humane Society of Harford County.
Sabrina also posted an update on President Isabel’s Animal Abuse Commission:
My mom sent this shelter an email to let them know she put there post/link on her website. This is the response they gave:
Thanks for your support! I can not tell you how much myself and my staff appreciates everyone trying to help us. As difficult as this situation is, we know we are lucky, we have received the survivors and I can tell you that while in poor condition upon intake, every single animal we received (69 dogs and 4 cats) is doing much better. Not one of them has been euthanized and all of them will eventually be placed in a “forever” home. Thanks again!
All together there was 112 animals. Lot of dead dogs and about 12 dead cats. So Please help this shelter anyway you can. If its a monetary donation, blankets, toys, food, anything, or just send a letter to tell them thank you for helping these innocent animals. Let these Angels know that we appreciate all their help for the furbabies.
