Please Help STAR Spread the Word

Sorry we have not posted this week, but once again life is getting in the way. We will post a long update on everyone next week. In the meantime, please help STAR get the word out that they need immediate help. 118 dogs were found in a trailer in Rowan County; while those dogs are now at the county pound, all of the dogs that were at the pound have been moved to a leased kennel in the next county. STAR can only rent the kennel temporarily & needs rescue help now! Please take a moment to look at the dogs who are in danger & spread the word.Thank you & please keep all of the animals in your thoughts.

Dogs in Need


The below information was copied from Help Me Central

Please crosspost widely / please network on Facebook / photos below
The puppy mill dogs cannot be released yet, so all of the current the pound dogs are at risk due to space.

Update - Per Julia - What we need ASAP! ALL dogs on the STAR site are in need of immediate rescue. I do have a driver to Hagerstown, possibly to Mechanicsburg on Wednesday. ALL dogs that were at the pound are now STAR dogs. We have them parked temporarily at the Stampers old kennel. They are leasing the kennel to us. We do not have the manpower to go out there and feed and water and clean 2x a day. So those dogs must go to rescue or foster now!!!! I know everyone is concerned about the mill dogs but they are OK for the time being. The county is handling that. We do need fosters for only a few of those dogs. The ones with newborns and the about to whelp ones. VERY important to realize if you foster one of those dogs that is all it is...foster. You cannot place those dogs. Every single dog listed on the STAR site must get rescued!!!

Just had a puppy mill raided in Morehead. Desperate for rescue for all current pound dogs. Tim Stamper is leasing his kennel to us since they are no longer using it so all the pound dogs have been moved to their kennel to handle the 118 mill dogs that are now at pound. Mill dogs cannot yet be released.
We have to get all the dogs on the site into rescue ASAP. www.petfinder.com/shelters/KY251.html 
 
Dogs with asterisk in front of names are already out of pound in foster or boarding. Dogs without it are now at Tim's. The dogs without it are the critical dogs that need to be moved right away. They are in next county over so county cannot care for them. Tim cannot care for them since he is busy with work. We are strapped big time getting enough people to go daily and care for them. This is a real mess.
 
Desperate for flea and tick stuff and dewormer.  Mill dogs are infested. 10+ per run at pound now. Fortunately all small breeds so they are better off at pound than they have been. Runs are good sized so they have room to move around. They were all crated in a single wide trailer at mill.

That is horrific and I can't imagine how overwhelmed STAR must be. I just donated and will share on Facebook right now.
