- Starving, FREEZING dogs need RESCUE, and $$ for FOOD & VETTING!!
I FAILED TO SAY THAT TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO BE IN THE SINGLE DIGITS beginning Monday night!

We know we cannot board all these animals, but PLEASE help us to buy cedar chips, blankets and good DOG FOOD!!   BUT MORE THAN ANYTHING, WE NEED RESCUE FOR THESE DOGS, AND MIA AND MOMMA DOG, AND OTHERS!

Yesterday, I received a call from a woman asking for help for her neighbor.  She said her neighbor has NO LIGHTS, NO WATER, AND NO FOOD, BUT DOES HAVE FIVE (5) DOGS that she cannot care for!!    

Most of your know that I moved to FL, because I could not live in Greenville, and see this DAILY!!  Right now, there are so many homeless dogs, that we can only try to feed and furnish cardboard boxes with hay (the "real" dog houses all get stolen overnight!).  

This woman has agreed to give up 4 of the dogs, but insists on keeping the Pit Bull she keeps inside in a kennel which is too small for him!!   We are giving her our last large kennel, but will be working on trying to remove this dog, IF he is adoptable!   His living condition is deplorable and SHOULD be against the law, but IS NOT here....he is provided shelter and food/water (but is extremely skinny because she only gives him small amounts of food -- she CANNOT afford to buy a good quality dog food and what she's feeding them is not nutritional. 

We (Animal Welfare League) took a 50-lb. bag of food to her yesterday, but we need donations to buy MUCH MORE FOOD!   We have starving dogs EVERYWHERE!   This house with 5 dogs is only one of many that cannot afford to feed their dogs!   Please let me know if you know of any help out there for people who cannot even afford to feed themselves, but have dogs they are not properly caring for.  

If you may be able to make a small donation to the Animal Welfare League, please send it directly to the President of AWL marked ANIMAL CARE FUND or go to: www.awlofms.org and click on the DONATE tab at the top and make a donation via PayPal marked ANIMAL CARE FUND or dog food......we will know what it's for. 

Thank you SO MUCH!!

If you have time, I would appreciate very much your writing a letter online to: www.ddtonline.org (local newspaper), and complaining that there are NO LAWS in the COUNTY limiting the number of animals people are allowed to have and also complaining that Greenville (Washington County, Mississippi) is known throughout the United States for its excess number of homeless dogs/cats, so WHY is nothing being done to reduce the homeless animals!    And let them know that just because animals cannot vote, that does not mean their owners can't as well as others who may love animals but not own them. 

I thank y'all and sincerely apologize to ALWAYS be begging but I cannot sit back and do nothing........these animals are pitiful and there is only so much we can do without asking for your help!    

Thank you so much!
