UAN’s Emergency Animal Rescue Service (EARS) is making its second trip to northwestern Arkansas in 2009 — this time to care for 100 dogs, 5 cats and 2 guinea pigs removed from a puppy mill in Lamar this morning.
Fourteen EARS volunteers have traveled from Louisiana, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas and other parts of Arkansas to care for the rescued animals at a temporary shelter. Distinguished by their red shirts, UAN’s EARS volunteers will feed, water and comfort the dogs; clean cages and assist veterinarians who are providing any necessary medical care.
EARS volunteers are working non-stop to get the animals settled in at the emergency shelter, so we haven’t received too many details yet. We’ll post more information and photos as soon as we have them. In the meantime, please read our press release for more information about this response.
