THERE ARE 3 SERIOUS ALERTS IN WEST VIRGINIA RIGHT NOW AND FUNDS AND RESOURCES WILL FIRST BE USED ON ALERT #1 BELOW. ANY LEFTOVER FUNDS AND RESOURCES WILL GO TO HELP THESE OTHER ALERTS WHICH CAN BE FOUND BELOW, OVER 350 DOGS TOTAL IN THESE CASES. First alert is the one we were first informed of a 100 dog/40 cat hoarding case in Roane County that is the first one being handled. Then the Mason County Shelter that was destroyed by fire now has over 200 dogs at the local fairgrounds and just 3 part time volunteers. A third hoarding case in Hampshire County, WV has 40 dogs
plus cats. (all described below) That is 350 dogs that are in situations outside “normal” animal welfare issues and a state in crisis. We will start with this first case in Roane County and then see if anything can be done with the others as resources line up for the first hoarding case which is being worked on. Maybe if enough people “act” we can share resources etc and save many more of these dogs and cats. THIS IS NOT A STATE WITH LOTS OF RESCUES AND RESOURCES; HELP IS NEEDED IN THE FORM OF DONATIONS, TRANSPORTS AND RECEIVING SHELTERS AND RESCUES.

Alert # 1: Urgent Hoarding Situation in Rural West Virginia

Approximately 95 dogs and 40 cats
County with few resources for handling a case this size.
(Please be sure to see the all the way below pictures
to see how urgent this hoarding case is)

1/3 of the dogs are in this barn, tethered.


A rescuer in West Virginia has gotten in over her head and local authorities have
had to step in. She is cooperating and wants the dogs to good no kill facilities
who will be kind enough to update her on the dogs as they are adopted. This is a hard thing for her to do as she loves each of these dog and feeds the dogs before herself. However, she knows things have gotten to a point that she needs help.
She is scared to death that any of her dogs will have to be put down and
we have told her that we won’t let her down for her cooperation.
She spends every dime of her money on them and feeds them before herself.

Approximately 95 dogs and 40 cats. Most dogs have been tethered for some time and others are in a very, very dirty barn. The farm is not sanitary with rats and
snakes in the high grass. THEY NEED TO GET MOVED TO RESCUES NOW and the cost of transport is becoming a huge problem.

Sheriff and Local Animal Control are very cooperative and seeking YOUR help.
This is a rural location with high euthanasia rates as it is, so they need help moving these dogs. They need to know that support is on the way and that light
is at the end of the tunnel. The goal is not to euthanize any of these animals,
nor the ones currently being held in their town facility but we all know how things can spin out of control with this many animals to care for an deal with…

Sue Skaskiw and others from Vermont are familiar with the rescuer as she used to
live in Vermont. They are trying to coordinate efforts to help this situation. However, TRANSPORT is becoming a big issue and it is going to cost money. We are also trying to get spay and neuter done locally at a good cost. Everyone knows
what it costs to try to deal with 100 dogs and 40 cats and we need help.

Please note that one of the biggest problems is funding for relocation. At least $10,000+ needs raised to get these animals to receiving shelters in Colorado, Vermont, Maine and others. (Or transport donated) and get vetting done.

DONATIONS URGENT FOR TRANSPORTS AND VET CARE

SHELTERS, FOSTERS, RESCUES, TRANSPORT WALKERS ARE STILL DESPERATLY NEEDED FOR ALL 3 SITUATIONS IN WV.

Can your group help walk dogs (transport walkers) on stops on the way to the North East or Colorado? Can you receive animals? Pick up and transport animals? Meet a larger transport vehicle and deliver a smaller number of animals from that transport to another NO KILL shelter or rescue? The animals will be coming up to the North East, Colorado, and New Jersey.

Alert # 2: Mason County, WV Fairgrounds.
213 dogs at the fairgrounds due to the shelter being burnt down.
Only a handful of volunteers.

Any leftover funds and resources from the Roane County Hoarding Case
Will be used to help this situation.

Alert # 3 Hampshire County, WV
A Mentally Ill Hoarder is indicted. His 40+ dogs and numerous
cats are arriving at an already full shelter.
Status is that a farm is trying to be found and offered to the animal control facility until rescues and transport can come in but it looks unlikely that this will happen. This one does not look good. If you are a rescue within driving distance please go get some of these animals out. They all sound very adoptable. This is a short drive from both DC, Baltimore. Philly and Pittsburg.

A Mentally Ill Hoarder is indicted. His 40+ dogs and numerous
cats are arriving at an already full shelter. All 40 dogs have to be held
for a court date, so the ones there now have to be euthanized in order to
make space for these new dogs!! The Hampshire County Animal Control tries
very hard not to euthanize, but they are out of space for this URGENT
situation; The dogs have till June 23 and 24 !!ALL DOGS WILL DIE IF NOT
RESCUED OR ADOPTED; please look at the dogs below and try to help, even
taking one dog will help the rest. Contact: Laurel at 304-492-5442 orEmail

I have emailed the Mason County people several times, because I only live about 30 minutes away from there and would be happy to help on the weekends. I don't know if they actually need volunteers at this point or what. In any case, I'm on the Ohio/WVA border, so if you need any on-scene help, let me know.

Why does it have to get this bad for something to get done?

Why does the rescue community not face the fact that these people are mentally ill and are abusing these dogs no matter what their "intentions" are?

Where were these dogs coming from? Were people mesmerized by the "no kill" concept sending these dogs to be abused?

How many other situations are there with animals getting tortured like this?

I think a lot of dogowners in general don't think about breed specific legislation unless it specifically affects their breed of dog. Between the media hype, ignorant politicians, and extremists- BSL (breed specific legislation) is a worldwide problem. Innoncent family pets, are the targets of BSL not dogs used by criminals for guarding drug houses, and dog fighting. Aug 19 & 20 the Canine Legislation Conference will be held in Chicago. Wake up America, or no one will own a pet, not even a goldfish!

Hi all
It is a good idea to start using enviromentally safe and animal friendly (non-toxic) substitutes when grooming your dog. You must groom your dog's whole body including the legs, tail and underbody if you want to do it right. You must groom certain dogs from the skin outward to truly be effective in taking care of their coat of hair and keeping it healthy. Comb through the unseen healthy hair and remove the shedding hair; this is what most groomers do first before cutting your pet's coat. You must groom some animals all at once, while some other animals have so much hair that it is easier to do a little at a time each day.

Saw your blog about bankrupt stock auction - as it is along the same lines I thought I would share this link with you. We were paying far too much for family things like clothes for us and the kids, games consoles inc the new Wii and soon to be PS3, car insurance/home insurance/pet insurance, broadband, mobile phones, landline calls, home and garden items, camping equipment and utilities/loans etc - you name it, we were spending too much on it.

Then a friend of mine recommended a site called www.bargainplace.co.uk. We were able to get cheaper electricity, gas, mobile phone, broadband and loan deals at bargainplace. Thanks to my friend (and the site) I am saving something like £100 a month and can afford an extra holiday abroard each year. Booked of course on www.bargainplace.co.uk. Thanks bargainplace ;-) !!

Good blog - very interesting!! I liked it so much I'm going to share this hush hush advice with you. Ever wondered how your neighbours are driving around in their brand new BMW or Mercedes cars - with their kids dressed in all the latest named gear and foreign holidays aplenty?? Well they discovered the secret to the extra online income.

If you are looking for a free tool to attract loads of free links to your blog or website then congratulations I've got the solution for you - and it is FREE!!

My website specialises in internet mortgage lead and to drive traffic to my website I was searching around the internet for absolutely ages looking for SEO tools and ffa submission sites to fire my site up the Google search engine - unfortunately these doing work and in fact had the opposite affect plunging my site down the rankings like it had a heavy weight attached!!, then I signed up for this free superb traffic generating tool - I now have loads of hits to my websites/blogs and my site is shooting back up the Google rankings quicker than ever before.

Consequently this saw my affiliate commissions shoot through the roof - meaning lots of extra money coming in for my family - I bought my first Mercedes car on the proceeds of my online campaign.

I hope the tool will serve you equally as well as it has me - it's free!!

Best of luck, cheers for now, dave.
