I was so upset by the HCSAS blog when I wrote this that I left out the most important part. We are going to foster and possibly adopt 1-2 of these dogs this weekend. Yes, I know! I must be mental!
I’m pretty sure that my husband will be ready to dis-own me when he gets back from his business trip. I stumbled across a CL posting today here.
Now, I heard on the news about a HUGE animal abuse and neglect story from Eastern Oregon some time back. I hadn’t heard anything else until today. Unfortunately, there were about 3-4 neglect cases pretty much one on top of the other and most of the news coverage of this one went by the wayside.
So, today, I went and checked out the Harney County Save A Stray Rescue website as they are the predominate organization dealing with this case. The situation is much more grim than I expected. They’re struggling to help in every way possible.
These dogs need to be moved soon or the property owners will shoot them. And there are still more than 70 dogs there with no where to go. No foster homes, no adoptive homes and, unfortunately, no funds to humanely euthanize them all.
I’m sure many of you have recently made donations to help Haiti. We’re all feeling the pinch financially, everywhere. So, if you can, please consider donating to this rescue effort. Even a small amount would be appreciated. And if you’re in the PNW, please consider adopting or fostering for your local rescue.
Save a life, adopt a homeless pet.
