After a life of neglect, Cricket shines on

In mid-July, during the hot, humid season in White County, Arkansas, 14 RedRover Responders volunteers assisted the Humane Society of the United States in the rescue and emergency sheltering of 96 dogs, puppies, cats and kittens. Many dogs on-site were found chained to trees and decrepit vehicles, while inside the home, cats and dogs lived in heartbreakingly miserable conditions.
