URGENT: ANIMALS NEED HELP IN WV August 31, 2004 3:16 AM
I just wanted to share this with as many people as I could. Maybe someone can help these little babies before they are unnecessarily killed. Please help if you can or if you know any rescues that can take these dogs and a few cats please let them know. These shelters and pounds desperately need help.
FEEL FREE TO CROSSPOST THIS AS MUCH AS YOU WANT. THEY NEED ALL THE HELP THEY CAN GET.
Subject: [WVShelterPets] Beagle Boy Needs Help - Mason Co., WV
Nick is an adorable beagle mix pup who was surrendered last week to the Mason County Animal Shelter in Point Pleasant, WV, one of twenty-five dogs brought in by a single family. This large influx of newcomers made it almost certain that there will be a mass gassing this week, because the shelter is over their limit on the number of dogs that can be held.
Nick came in with a bevy of brothers and sisters, some two years old, others six months old like Nick. Sue, their mom, who is pregnant again, was also dumped. So was their dad, a purebred beagle -- and a whole lot more. These dogs need help, and they need it fast. The shelter also needs help to set up a transport this weekend. The county will not help to fund any rescue efforts, and there are no donated funds left to pay for the gas.
If you can help, email Missy at firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy to MasonCounty@mailpuppy.com. For most efficient response, please include your name, address, phone number and email address along with the name of your rescue, any web site URL AND the name, address and phone number of the vet you use to alter and treat animals in your rescue. To see Mason's entire pet list, please check out their website at http://www.petfinder.org/shelters/WV39.html
The Mason County Animal Shelter is located at Route #1 , Box 480 , Point Pleasant, WV 25550 Phone: (304) 675-6458. Email address: MasonCounty@mailpuppy.com
