We were going to post on her today anyway, but instead of writing our own message (who are we kidding, we always write a book regardless), we are going to print a copy of an email received from Heather Ballance, a photographer from Atlanta who has been to Carol's, met and photographed all her dogs. To have Rainsville kill even a single dog will be a knife in the heart of Heather and every volunteer who has been working with Carol to find homes for the dogs.
Most you know that I have been involved with helping this amazing woman Carrol Crocker in AL. Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, several other rescues & people have been working even harder. Unfortunately its not enough. There are 62 more dogs to go. Per the judge - these dogs can be taken any day and destroyed and we are down to the wire!
This Saturday we will be hosting a open adoption day along with a clean up effort. Please if you are looking for a new furry friend or want to clean up please come, its worth the trip, I promise you!
Please if you can't help or adopt - please share the story. If we can get only 5 dogs this Saturday saved, then its 5 dogs less to die! Thank you!!

If you follow the links, you can read more about the work party and adoption day they have planned for Saturday. They need more rescues and adopters to come forward before it is too late for all of these well-cared for and much loved dogs.
We would like to include a message for the "fine folks" of Rainsville, Alabama. You know who you are. You're the ones who are forcing Carol to part with these dogs under a judge's decision. You're the one(s) who set the fire that destroyed Carol's family home and killed a number of her cats and special needs dogs. You're the ones who give volunteers trying to help Carol the cold shoulder and refuse to give directions to her home -- oh, wait, she doesn't have a home; it burned down last November. Whatever happened to small town neighborliness and hospitality?
We don't believe in Karma, but we do believe that it's hard to shovel jackass poop without slinging some on yourself. So, if you fine folks are obtuse enough to shovel jackass poop on others, you're going to be wearing a lot of it yourself.
