Carrol's Best Friends

The story of Carrol Crocker in Rainsville, Alabama needs to continue to circulate. You can help. Post a link to JFF or email it to your non-blogging friends. We will be giving updates as we receive them. You don't know who might find Carrol in this manner and be just that particular person who can drive a backhoe or who can supply experienced transport for some of the dogs, or who might know someone within driving distance who can volunteer, or who can donate a few dollars to the cause, or ........... or who might see one or more dogs and adopt.
Oh, and these dogs are not being sold or handed out to anyone who shows up. Potential adopters must fill out an application and be approved, the usual procedure with a rescue. Carrol wants them to go to homes where they are wanted and will be cared for. But the need must be kept before the public. If the time runs out and the city seizes whatever number are left on the property, the dogs will be shot. So, please, keep spreading the word.
Read Carrol's story on the Best Friend's link. This version is the most detailed one we've read. There is a "how you can help" section. And several more links, including a must read, Hope4Dogs.

Also, we want to thank all of you who responded to our request for input on our blog this week. You were a great help! And a special thanks to Missouri Bill and Texas Mark, who hung in with us all week to let us know which changes worked -- and the myriad of ones that didn't work! -- on smaller resolution screens. And then they did the same for Upson Pets. We don't think viewers should have any trouble seeing the pet photos there now!
And a very special thanks to Zoolatry, who created the beautiful header banner, and to Criz Lai, who created the fun banner at the bottom of this page. Criz's cat Janice has been very sick for days and if you haven't already visited him this week, stop by and leave him an encouraging message.
