13 Dogs Rescued from Cruelty Arrive at LDCRF

In July, The Humane Society of the United States assisted in the rescue and removal of 95 animals after authorities discovered them living in filth and suffering from a lack of basic care in Arkansas. Once we watched the video of the rescue,  hard to imagine how these dogs even survived!

After being cared for at a temporary shelter in Arkansas, Lost Dog and Cat Rescue, which is an Emergency Placement Partner for the HSUS, was asked if we could help in finding homes for some of the dogs. While we aren’t able to go and rescue 95 animals at a time, we are glad to be able to help make more large scale rescues possible by finding homes for animals from these cases when we are able. We had a great weekend of adoptions, with 82 dogs and cats finding homes, and are happy to welcome 13 of these dogs into the LDCRF family.

This is what they were living under. Most likely mom chose to nurse them here because it may have been the only available shade.

Most of the animals we rescue come from high kill shelters, and are scheduled to be euthanized. We often don’t know their history- their stories, their previous lives-relying on them to tell us. In this case, we do know their story, and it is a reminder that there are animals out there who don’t make it to the shelter, and instead live their lives out in these situations. We’re glad to be able to play a part in the rescue of these dogs, and help them find homes where they will learn what life is supposed to be like.

If you’re interested in helping these dogs and others find homes, please consider making a donation, signing up to volunteer, or join our network of foster homes by emailing foster@lostdogrescue.org! If you’re interested in adopting, please email dogs@lostdogrescue.org
