you’re gonna need more than one afternoon to celebrate all the great things you do for pets. let us know if there’s anything we do to help!

I'll be there with Hannah if that's okay

I'm *almost* as excited as Miss Annie Mae in this photo!

Barry and I will be there. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

๐Ÿพ ๏ฟผLots To Do For Roo (+ 8 other dogsโ€ฆ)๐Ÿพ

Team HOWS 06/12/2021 (Gabriele Ford, Andrea Denton, and Stacey Norris) visited ๏ฟผa property๏ฟผ with 9 outside dogs. ๐Ÿ•
Roo, was kept by the adult grandson; while๏ฟผ the other 8 were kept by the grandfather. All were chained on various parts of the property. Welcomed in, we assessed how HOWS could assist and began preparing dog houses and other supplies๏ฟผ.

The grandson had admitted that Roo was a lot for him and he was considering surrender.๏ฟผ
We explain our surrender care program and within the hour he had transferred him into our care.

There was great interest by us and the grandson to do what we could today for the remaining eight dogs ๏ฟผand return at a later date with additional supplies. After getting houses prepped and flea and tick preventative pulled, the grandfather decided that he did not want our help ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๏ฟผ๏ฟผ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜ข
How unfortunate for his dogs as - not only morally but also legally - many of them are in need of improvements that we were willing to help with right then and there. Since he will not allow for HOWS assistance, we will need to have a โ€œhigher powerโ€ pay a visit for the sake of his 8 neglected hound dogs ๐Ÿ˜”
Our hearts ache that we were not able to help them today.

As for Roo:
๐Ÿฉบ He is spending the night at VETSS, where he was medically examined and found to be negative for heart worm๐Ÿ™Œ, but positive for anaplasmosis (which thankfully can be treated with doxycycline๏ฟผ).
We will transfer him to Autumn Trails vet hospital tomorrow to be boarded for a day or two. ๐Ÿ›๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™‚
And then he will be transferred into the care of Smiles Forever Animal Rescue ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ’œ (jackpot!) we will work with Smiles to get him neutered in the near future.๏ฟผ๏ฟผ๏ฟผ โœ‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘
Many players for Team Roo๏ฟผ! Very thankful for each and everyone of them.

Paws crossed for some positive forward movement for the remaining gang of 8๏ฟผ๏ฟผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

Thank you so much for all you do. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿฅฐ

So cute. Hopefully the other dogs will receive help soon

So sad the grandfather made that choice. Thanks for all you do to help outside dogs. ๐Ÿ‘

Thank you all for your hard work and dedication in helping these precious furbabies...hoping the remaining dogs are given the same opportunity as Roo or atleast be taken care of properly โค

Another great HOWS day with two amazing humans, Stacey Vaughn Norris and Gabriele Ford!!

What a day. So thankful Roo’s life is changed forever. As hard as it is to walk away from those left behind, you planted a seed (though sounds like maybe the “higher power” may have to water it). Well done ladies. โค๏ธ

Green is a great color for all of you... I so miss field days

Thanks for all you do.

Burst into tears over this post. Thank you. That guy deserves the higher power and much more. I’ll foster Roo if they need one. ๐Ÿ˜

Amazing work - so grateful for all you do. Hope better things work out for the rest.

Small steps forward....

Thanks again for all the caring and hard work. God bless.
