Happy update on Festus!

Jean was at home cooking breakfast when her son Jason called. While driving to work, he spotted a little beagle lying on the side of the road. He couldn’t just pass by and leave him to suffer, so Jason pulled over, scooped up the limp dog and drove him to a friend’s house. He called his mom and asked if she would pick up little “Festus” and take him to a veterinarian.

You inspire! Heather and Blue's story

When we reached out to you last month to help Reiki, a service dog who needed emergency surgery, we were overwhelmed by your generosity. Heather, a fellow supporter, was especially inspired by the way our RedRover community came together to help Reiki. You see, Heather has her own incredible rescue story, and she knows how much it means when the community rallies together to support a family in need.

Cute puppy pics from the temporary shelter

We just received some photos from Dothan, Alabama, where UAN volunteers are caring for 198 dogs and 31 cats rescued from an overrun private animal shelter on February 28. The owner of the shelter relinquished custody of the animals to the local sheriff's department, and they will be transferred to rescue groups and shelters for adoption in the coming days. In the meantime, UAN's volunteers are making sure the animals are comfortable and content in their temporary digs at the local fairgrounds.

Thanks to EARS volunteer Tereza Marks for these photos!

Rescued animals are "bursting with personality"

It’s been a long couple of days in Alabama for the UAN volunteers tending to 198 dogs and 31 cats rescued from Dirty Sally’s Pet Pals on Monday. Many of the dogs were found chained to trees around the property and the cats were living in a dirty pen exposed to the elements. Because very little food was available, some dogs were eating leaves, acorns and even rocks.

When UAN is busy, animals are happy

A popular adage says, "When it rains it pours," and it is certainly raining cats and dogs for United Animal Nations (UAN). But when UAN is busy, that means neglected animals are on their way to a better life.

Could you be loved?

For the 98 dogs rescued from a puppy mill in Tennessee last Wednesday, the answer is a resounding "yes!" UAN's Emergency Animal Rescue Service (EARS) volunteers reported that the dogs were all exceptionally loving after just a few days in the temporary shelter.

Bob Marley, who had the worst matting of all the rescued dogs, was particularly thrilled to get a bath and haircut. Check out his before and after photos:
