An Angel Has Landed!

Erin Has made it to Arkansas, and will get a final count, and then begin to load up the dogs and bring them into safety.
We have reports that there are some 200 dogs at this shelter in Arkansas, and they are being kept outside in large holding pens.
The dogs are all but going crazy,.....

The Cry for Help is Answered!

From many miles away, ....an Angel, is dusting off her wings, and getting ready for a 2700 mile journey,.....to help get these Bird Dogs to safety,...
With in a week, Illinois Bird Dog Rescue , along with a few other rescues have come up with a plan,....

 

It was a pitiful sight. Dead dogs laying around, 2 pens , where the slaughtered horse carcasses were 12 inches deep, the dogs couldn't even touch the ground, a puppy trying to feed off of his dead mother,

The Tradgedy Unfolds,..












We had to confiscate over 50 dogs, American Field Bred Pointers and English Setters... can send you pictures.. but they were in awful condition.

It's a long story, this Gary Kimes had over 60 dogs out on a mountain, and was feeding them slaughter house carcasses, and old bread still in the bags.







They were living in 50 gallon barrels for shelter. Most were extremely emaciated, some dead, and a few had to be euthanized. It was a pitiful sight.

The Ozark Humane Society is removing the dogs from the property, cataloging the dogs and housing them at the Humane Society's shelter.










The sheriff's department said the dogs were housed in small pens with no clean water and the only food available were full, unopened loaves of bread.








Several dogs appeared to be malnourished and in poor health.
Kimes’ bond is set at $15,000.
