Working with EARS Finding Homes for West Virginia Flood Victims

jm-wvrescue.jpg (41248 bytes)This will be our final weekend in West Virginia.   We will be busy today getting animals moved out of the temporary shelter.   Some of the owned animals are going home today.  Their caregivers feel their homes are now cleaned up enough for it to be safe for the animals to return.  Several of the dogs will be going home with a dog run and dog house until permanent fences can be rebuilt.  The need for foster homes for owned animals has been minimal and arrangements are being made for the few that will need somewhere to stay for the next few weeks and possibly months.

The animals that have been surrendered are available for adoption and we have been extremely pleased with how many of the animals will be going to new homes.  The dogs and cats that we have been privileged to care for have all been really nice and it has been easy for the volunteers on site to get attached.  Once again some of the animals will be going home with the volunteers.   The Walker Hound that we thought was dead along the side of the road is doing great and will be going to live in Virginia with Jennifer Martin.  Four orphaned white kittens flew to California today with EARS coordinator Michele Graham who will be placing them once they are old enough. The kitten's mother drowned.  Two of our oldest, and more difficult to place dogs, are going to live with EARS volunteer Jane Lantham.  I will be taking Mullens, the kitten with the broken leg, home with me to California to find him a home.  Our 4 semi feral cats will be going to live with Gina Richardson who will be working with them so they can be placed. (At above left, Dr. Polley, the EARS veterinary care coordinator, and EARS volunteer Jennifer Martin vaccinate one of the dogs available for adoption.)

We brought five dogs back to our sanctuary for rehabilitation and future adoption including three Pitt Bulls that were slated to be shot in the head simply because of their breed. They're real horrible all right...they attack me just to give me kisses all over and their tails never stop wagging.

New Hope Sanctuary for the Animals is a rescue, haven, and adoption organization for abused, tortured, and abandoned innocent animals and pets. We are based on the Christian principles that God intended humans to follow as guardians of His creation.  We are a not-for-profit welfare, protection, rescue, rights organization dedicated to the compassionate care of stray and abandoned cats, kittens, dogs, puppies, litters, and farm animals (chickens, pigs, etc.).  We encourage people to adopt and provide kind and loving care for a cat, dog, kitten, puppy, or litter, as well as to   promote humane population control through spaying and neutering.  We are involved in direct action in rescuing and placing animals within a network of animal groups across the nation, and in increasing public awareness and education about the abuse, torture, factory farming, slaughtering, butchering and the murder of innocents, and the need to spay and neuter.  Through the media, special events, and publications we   promote anticruelty, love, compassion, mercy, respect, and kindness towards all animals, animal theology, and compassionate alternatives to animal products.
