Promptly after announcing the much needed break I was going to take from rescue, an alleged puppy mill was raided in our community and we were asked to help. Due to the fact that this is an on going criminal investigation, we are unable to adopt the dogs to new homes at this time, but at least we are able to acknowledge that we have them in our care now! We were able to bring 6 dogs into the rescue and I am happy to report that they are adjusting well to their new life. We are in desperate need of donations as explained in the letter below, and where I have never asked for donations before on this blog, if you are able to help us out with a donation of any size, it would be much appreciated.
Without further ado, let me introduce you to the "Maplewood 6 Pack!"
On Saturday, November 17, 2012 the Ohio SPCA and Shelby County Sheriff’s Department raided an alleged puppy mill in Maplewood Ohio. In this raid 241 dogs were pulled to safety.
We at Lost and Found K9 Rescue were able to admit 6 dogs from this raid into our rescue program with the hope of rehabilitating and adopting these dogs out as an end result. Sadly, these dogs all came into rescue in poor shape, mentally and physically. They had not been vaccinated, altered, and several had terrible ear infections, dental problems, and urinary tract infections. The estimated cost of vet care alone to care for the “Maplewood 6 Pack” is $2306.00, which is a taxing amount of money for any rescue and especially a small rescue.
We know many of you have dogs that share your heart and home, and we are asking a favor of you. (No, we are not asking you to adopt a dog …) What we are asking for is a monetary donation to a wonderful rescue organization that is busy saving lives. A rescue that is allowing these dogs to experience grass under their feet for the first time in their lives, warm beds, full bellies, and human kindness.
Any amount that you could donate would be appreciated, and no donation is too small! Rest assure your donation is going to a registered Ohio non-profit organization and your donation is tax deductable.
