Randon's rescue

Danya and Brent are known in their community as the “animal rescue folks,” so it was no surprise when a neighbor asked them to take in a tiny kitten who needed their help.

Unfortunately, the kitten (who they named “Randon”) had been attacked by another animal and sustained very serious injuries. Randon initially received stitches and had a broken leg repaired, but there were complications with Randon's wounds and an emergency amputation was needed.

Big spots, bigger heart

Stacey was surprised when she found a friendly large dog with big brown spots roaming around her neighborhood. With no collar, tags or owner in sight, Stacey begin calling the pup “Petey,” but later realized Petey was a female! To keep her safe and sound, Stacey decided to give the Petey a life of safety and comfort in her own home.

Stacey took Petey to the veterinarian for an exam and learned that Petey was heartworm positive. The treatment would cost hundreds of dollars more than Stacey and her family could afford.

Polly want a cracker…or a couch cushion?

Parrots are known to be incredibly smart and sensitive – and Tarzan, a beautiful female African Grey parrot, is no different. Tarzan was poorly cared for in her previous home and had nearly plucked herself bald due to stress before finally nestling into her forever home with Pamela. With a lot of love, patience and attention, Pamela helped Tarzan get over her plucking and on the road to a happy life.

Meet Stevie …

EARS volunteer Marcia Goodman has been doing a great job keeping the outside world informed about the 180 dogs rescued from Raven's Hope Animal Sanctuary in Kemper County, Mississippi. But she did take some time away from her writing and photography to chill out with one of the neediest dogs.

Progress at the emergency shelter

Submitted by EARS volunteer Marcia Goodman of Cromwell, Connecticut

I haven’t previously reported on one piece of excellent news for the dogs seized from Raven's Hope Animal Sanctuary here in Kemper County, Mississippi. The owner agreed not to contest the seizure except for three dogs she identified. For readers of this blog who volunteer with EARS, you know that if she had contested the seizure and forced the matter to wind its way through the courts, these dogs could have been on hold in shelters for a very long time.
