Only Two Weeks

As hard as it is for us to get around the internet right now, we do manage an occasional visit to the sick, those who have lost a furry, and those with problems. And one of the stories we try hard to keep up with is the story of Carrol Crocker and her dogs.

By now you might be tired of reading about them, but as time grows shorter, the need to keep reminding folks is critical. This is not a case of hoarding; Carrol took good care of these dogs. They were the abandoned and unwanted in a county with no shelter. If I understand this correctly, after her home was burned by an arsonist, she was cited with code violations by the city of Rainsville. Adopters, fosters or rescues have helped with all but 13 of the dogs.

The city gave her until February 9, then moved the date back to February 1. There are only 2 weeks left before the city confiscates the remainder of the dogs on her property. And they will not meet a merciful death.

So, please, if you can help in any way ...... We would if we could, but by city ordinance Jan is only allowed to have 3 dogs on this property, so she has her limit and can not even foster one.

Heather Ballance has been to Green Acres and photographed the dogs. She attests to their adoptability and posts updates on her Hope4Dogs blog. She has also written a short article for Best Friends/Atlanta. We hope you will check out both links and pass them on.


  1. We are purring for the doggies. We wished we could do more. We will link to your post.

    There is also a little kitty living in a post office, not bothering anyone, but a few humans complained and now the kitty cannot stay there. Bonnie Hunt on her tv show talked about it so moth is hoping that with all of her viewers that a new home will be found for the kitty.
