Group not accepting pets from owners

-A A +A

Editor:

Eight years ago Phyllis Codling McLaughlin and I started Carroll County Animal Support with the idea to help the homeless and helpless dogs at our local animal shelter. And over the years we have saved hundreds from being euthanized. We get no funding from local, state or federal agencies; we get our funds through fundraising, donations from local industries and some wonderful citizens. We do not have a physical shelter but foster the dogs mostly in my home and boarding kennel and some other foster homes.

It has gotten to the point that so many individuals call us to help them with their pets that we have gotten away from helping the ones at the shelter and they are being euthanized weekly.

Effective immediately we will no longer take in owner surrendered pets. We will be more than glad to assist you in finding a place for your pets by listing them on our Petfinder site, sending pictures to different rescue lists on the Internet and if you are not able to take digital pictures, we will try to come and take them for you.

Please understand that wonderful, loving dogs are dying in our local shelter, and we want to help them have a forever home. While you may need to place your pet, at least that pet is in a warm and loving home until another can be found, but the dogs at the shelter do not have that opportunity. I am sorry but this is the most help we can offer at this time.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone in the community who supports us. Without your support, we could not begin to do what we do. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.
