Amazing Carrol Crocker

Update 9 p.m. -- Can anyone help with transport?

Zazu of Forgotten Paws:
Thank you all for singing the petition and writing to the Oprah show. We hope that this will be a huge help in getting even more attention to Carol and her dogs.

If anyone is interested in assisting in transport efforts for these dogs, please write to me at There are a number of rescues in the NE who are willing to help. Now, just need to get these babies there!

HB left a message on "Carol Crocker Update" just a little bit ago. We are so glad she took the time to write it and give us a link to view some of her photos. We want to share the news with you, so we are posting her comment.

Please keep Carol and her dogs before the public. There is progress but still a way to go. We are purring and wagging our tails so hard Jan can't pick up after us fast enough. We want this wonderful woman and her dogs to have a better life than what is facing them right now.

And, Carrol, we apologize for misspelling your name through all our posts. The correct spelling is Carrol.

We took some time to meet Carrol Crocker for ourselves on Sunday. We spent the day bathing, mowing lawns, filling water buckets, talking and crying with Carrol. This lady is amazing. Her dogs are happy, loving and healthy. Not one aggressive or dog that suffers. Still has over 70 dogs needing rescue.

She watched her house burn to the ground and listen to the crys of 18 handicap dogs die that she could not save. The fire was an attempt to kill. No one is investigating, her government has failed her, her people have failed, her town has failed her. Where the hell is her community to help her? When is the next fire?

Its a matter of time before it gets cold. She has no heat, no hot water, no firewood, she sleeps on a army type cot, why, because she is selfless, these dogs are her livelihood and every penny goes to help the dogs of Rainsville that people threw out.

Spend a day with this woman. Talk to her, laugh with her, hug her, help her. You will come home unable to quit thinking of her. Mow her lawn, weed wack, help cut trees for firewood, spend a day with her before you can judge her. She does not deserve the ignorance. This woman should be the town hero. Good things are going to happen for her and her dogs.

Thank you to all the amazing people who donated to her, donated their time and their prayers. She is thankful more then you will know.

This is my visit and my photos. Please sign her petition she needs everyone to fight for her. If you are interested in adopting a dog all adoptions will go thru Forgotten Paws.

Please read the information on this page: Green Acres Animal Sanctuary, Rainesville, Alabama.
