In January, Southern Pines Animal Shelter collaborated with the Humane Society of the United States, our wonderful HSUS State Director, and the Pearl River County Sheriff's Department in seizing almost 60 animals from deplorable conditions. These 40 small breed dogs, 11 gerbils, 1 rabbit, 2 chickens, 1 horse, and 2 turtles are now safe and receiving medical assessments and care, grooming, and lots of love and attention.
These animals will now have a second chance, free from the horrors they once knew. Many of the animals suffered from overgrown nails, matted fur, missing teeth, and other medical issues. They will now receive the care they need and the time to regain their confidence. These efforts and the ongoing care of these animals come at a price, and we are in need of donations from our wonderful community of supporters. If you can donate to help with the care of these animals, please do so by visiting http://www.southernpinesanimalshelter.org/donate.
We are saddened by the loss of those lives we did not make it in time to save; we are so hopeful for the bright new lives that those who were saved will have; and we are determined to continue working with law enforcement officials, animal advocates, and our community of supporters to put an end to animal neglect and suffering in our state. Together, we are making a difference for animals in need.
