Hi everyone—something terrible happened to a shelter in Macon, GA and they need all the help they can get. Please please please pass this on and help out All About Animals if you can:
We are deeply saddened by the cruel, criminal and inhumane treatment our beloved dogs endured last night. As most of you already know, sometime between the hours of 8p.m. Wednesday and 7a.m. Thursday, a person or (most likely) persons broke into our shelter in Downtown Macon and committed an unthinkable and deplorable crime. To the best of our knowledge, these criminals broke through our gates, removed security chains from the kennels and released at least 20-30 dogs from their pens. We can only assume their intent was to fight the dogs. There were many breeds of dogs involved, not just bulldog mixes. We are left grieving the death of three sweet, innocent lives: Butler, Jack and Flapjack. Additionally, we have eight dogs in bad shape at three different vets: Lionel, Belle, Mic, Iggy, Asher, Orson, Ansley and Theo. And at least six more with significant injuries that were treated and remain at our shelter: Biscuit, Duchess, Mayhem, Oscar, Porter and Petey. Belle, our sweet, gentle, adult female bulldog mix who was severely injured in the fighting also has wounds that were not created by another dog, but rather are consistent with being intentionally cut.
Since so many dogs were injured, there are going to be a lot of vet bills for all of these babies. Like most shelters, they don’t have the money for this. There are several ways to donate:
2) Network for Good
3) Mail donations to: P.O. Box 4331 Macon, GA 31208
4) Stop by the shelter at 101 Riverside Drive in Downtown Macon next to the entrance of Central City Park
Even if you can only donate a few dollars, please consider helping these people. A company has even offered to install a security system but they will need sponsors to pay the monthly monitoring fee. Anything will help! They’re very nice and their dogs are wonderful. I can’t even believe that someone would do something like this. Please please please signal boost this.
