We have what appears to be another update to the Rainsville, Alabama dog rescue story. If this is true, we are glad we emailed Best Friends about the conflicting information.
Zazu left a new comment on our Saturday post, "Carol Crocker Update." We don't know Zazu or how to contact this person but we're posting this in case ......
Hi. I'm a volunteer with Forgotten Paws Dog Rescue, working in conjunction with Best Friends Society for Carol's dogs. We have been on site with Carol and all of her wonderful dogs.
As an up to the minute update (9/28at 10:00 p.m.) we have pulled one dog from Carol's today and transported to an FP foster home. We will be pulling 2 more on Tuesday, one to FP foster and the other to a permanent home. 2 are scheduled to move on 10/6 to a permanent home if all goes well. There are a few rescues in the northeast who are interested in taking a few of the dogs and a few individuals from whom we are accepting applications.
This is very much still a desperate situation so please continue to post far and wide.
Also, please sign the petition (google Rainsville petition). (We googled it. Click here for the petition.) This is an effort to stop the city from destroying these beautiful animals.
Also, write to the Oprah show at www.Oprah.com\contactus. Put Help Rainsville Dogs in the subject line. She needs as much exposure as she can get and as quick as she can get it! Thank you for caring! These dogs are AWESOME! Friendly, sweet, loveable and so very deserving of a great life.
The email is NOT correct and has served only to hinder a very desperate rescue effort.
**There is a link above to our Saturday post where we included an email stating Best Friends was taking all the dogs today and none would be euthanized. This is the email referred to above as not correct. This is a very confusing story to follow, but the gist of this post is that Carol Crocker still desperately needs help to place all her dogs before the city of Rainsville confiscates and kills them!
